If you’ve been on social media lately, you probably have noticed everyone has been rocking to good ole’ braid pigtails. When I first saw them, I was a little skeptical. I thought they were a little childish and alien looking. Of course with time, all trends grow on you (aka when its shoved in your face enough you start to like it).
The double dutch braids aka boxer braids are the it braid right now. You have seen them on celebrities like Kim K and Katy Perry rock these braids numerous times. These braids are great because they are low maintenance and zero fuss. They are great to go out in, go to the gym in, or just chill in. It’s a different spin on French braids as well.
Double Dutch How-To:
If you are a born hair guru, check out celebrity hair stylist, Jen Atkin‘s How-To on these fab braids.
If you are a more visual person, check out Carli Bybel‘s braid tutorial.
Finally, for those who love their extensions as much as I do, take a look at Tashie Tinks‘ braids tutorial. She is amazing. She shows you how to do double Dutch braids without exposing your extensions.
I haven’t personally tried to double Dutch braids yet (because I hate the way my shot hair looks in braids), but I recently discovered Tashie’s video, so I’ll update you soon on how that goes!
