How to Dutch Braid Like a Commando
Get To The Chopper
The first thing we learned when we started researching Dutch braids was that they aren’t named after Major “Dutch” Schaefer in Predator. Beyond that disappointment, turns out Dutch braids are pretty SICK, and you can do them yourself with a little practice and a superhuman combination of pulverizing strength and endurance.
Our action-packed Dutch braid tutorial is below, but first we’ll tackle a few common questions about Dutch braids. Some might sound silly, but this is what they’re asking.
What Is A Dutch Braid?
A Dutch braid is a type of French braid, where additional hair is added gradually as it’s being braided. That’s in contrast to a more traditional braid, where braided sections contain the same hair from beginning to end, without adding new hair.
What’s The Difference Between Dutch Braids and a French Braid?
The difference with a Dutch braid is the sections of hair overlap underneath each other instead of over the top of each other. You could say they underlap, offering a unique, stylish, 3D appearance that really pops.
You might also hear it called an “inside-out braid,” or a “reverse braid.”
