Five Strand Dutch Braids



Well, believe it or not, for me this was my first time to do 5 strand Braid, and I can say that it looks really complicate, and actually it isn't, all you have to do is, start, follow the instruction, and taadaa, done. Ok, I have to admit, i needed little bit help (my nieces free will :D, or you can use some clips carefully). Now, note this, if regular braiding hair is something complicated for you, this will be too. But, if you want,I know will.

Prepare you hair : 

Brush through your hair to get all the tangles out and make it soft, smooth and ready to braid. If you want, you can place small amount of liquid crystal, or some hair oil, which you are using for your hair. This can help you to braid your hair much easier.   

To create this hairstyle, you will need :
  • Wide-tooth comb
  • Hair clip
  • Elastic (one, colored or not)
  • Flexible hold hairspray 


Step by step, how to? 

Expand your braid repertoire by learning how to do a Dutch Braid, with 5 strands of hair. Usually, Dutch braids use 3 strands of hair, as does a traditional braid. Dutch Braids look like a French braid turned inside out, because the hair is weaved under the center strand, instead of over it. 
For best results, wash and comb the hair before braiding it to get rid of any tangles. It is also easier to braid damp or wet hair, than dry hair.


Comb the hair back over the scalp. Grab a 3-inch/7cm wide section of hair in one hand, and divide it into 5 equally sized strands. Hold 2 of the sections in your left hand and 3 of the sections in your right hand.
Bring the strand of hair on the far-right side inder both the strand of hair just to the left of it and under the middle strand of hair. The far-right strand should now be in the center.
Bring the far-left strand of hair under the strand just to the right of it and under the center strand. The far-left strand of hair will now be in the center.
Grab some more hair from the right side of the head, and add it to the strand that is now on the far right. Bring that strand under the right strand just to the left of it and then under the center strand.
Add more hair from the left side of your hear to the strand on the far left, then move that strand under the strand to the right of it and under the middle strand.


Continue to add more hair to the strands as you work your way down the scaip, bringing the strands on the far right and left under the 2 strands to the side of them. 
When you have about 2inches/5cm of hair left, secure the braid with a hair elastic. You can secure the braid earlier if the strands are getting so short that it is difficult to braid them. Mist the hair with flexible hold hairspray, and you are ready. :)

Short tutorial :

Begin by parting the hair on the right side. Brush through the hair to remove any tangles. Divide off a front section of hair by creating a vertical part from the original part down to the left ear. Clip off the back section to keep it out of the way. Pick up a small section of hair on the left side of the part for the braid. Divide this section into three equal pieces. Cross the back strand over the middle. Then cross the front strand over the middle. Cross the back strand over the middle and bring in a section of hair incorporating it into the braid. One half of the heart, bring small section hair only from one side, and the other half  of the heart, bring small section of hair from other side, as you can see on those pictures. Finish this braiding in a shape of half circle, like you already separated the hair. Tied off the end with an elastic band. Mist the style with a flexible hold hairspray and you are ready.

Starting with dry hair , use a wide-tooth comb to detangle the hair. Then, tied up half of the hair (front part until above the ears) with ponytail holders or elastic. 




Divided into two parts (your ponytail) and start to braid Fishtail with both parts, so in the end you will have two Fishtails.



When you finish braiding Fishtails, tied them with elastic, so they don't undone. But just before you tied them, if you want them to look bigger, you can make them loose, until you get that what you want.




So, braided, made it loose, tied up, and in the end just connect them.... And taadaa..  You have Heart Braided Fishtail.

Mix of Different Braid Styles


Mix of Different Braid Styles

Like you can notice, I love to play with hair, as well I love braiding. Here we have Dutch Braid, French Braid, French Fishtail Braids, Fish Ponytail Braids. Hope you like it and may I give you some ideas. I like this hairstyle, simply because if you want you can wear only one of those tipes of styles, it will looks perfect, trust me.  
Here we go...




Now this is our model 
Here we have long hair,colored hair in few shades.

Preparation :

  • Rattail Comb ( the long handle on this type of comb makes sectioning hair to create cool braids or a flawless curl set a total breeze)
  • Liquid Crystals (the quaternized silicone creates a screen that, moisturising and giving volume to hair, carries out an immediate softening action, apply on a wet hair and do not rinse)
Wash it, dry it, brush it and move on.













This is how I start. 

Side Braids


I have started with Mini French Braids, you will find them like Cornrow Braids, or Side Braids. I made those braids until the top of the head, because we wanted to finish this style with a tail. 
But even if you leave your hair like this, you will not make mistake. 

I made three mini french braid, next to each other, neat and tight, and they go straightto the top of the head, and they have straight line. Again, I have in my example this, but you can play with them how you like. :) 











  

Here we have other side of the head.

So, as you can see, first we have straight braids, mini french braids, now they are still Mini Frensh Braids, it's just this time I did criss- cross just to look more interesting for everyone . 

I start to braid all the braids and somewhere in the middle I stop and then decide where to go with them. 

Them finishing them on the top of the head somewhere in the middle and to be close to the braids from the other side, so we can connect them all together, with elastic, or if you want you can do that later with all hair  together.  

Again , if you want you can kept this braids and style, it is really your choice. :) 








Third Step  

Upside Down Dutch Braid to Ponytail

A dutch braid trailing up the back of the head and ending in a ponytail. 

Start by flipping the head over to work with the hair underneath. 
Take a small section of hair at the nape of the neck and divide it into three pieces. Cross the side strands under the middle to begin a regular braid. 
Cross the side strand under the middle then bring in a section of hair and add it into the strand. 
Cross the other side strand under the middle, bringing in hair again.
 Continue braiding the hair in a dutch braid until it reaches the top of the ears.
Tie off the braid to keep it from coming undone.






Top or front of the head

French Fishtail Braid

Begin by taking a three inch section of hair, on the heavy side of the part, and divide it into two halves.
Take a small section from the back strand and cross it over to the other side.
 Then take a smaller strand from the front section and cross it over to the other strand. 
Next, take a section of hair from the outside of the braid.
Cross the strand over to the top and add it into the other side. 
Next, take a piece from the other side. Cross the strand over the top and add it into the other strand. 
Tie the braid with elastic, and again, tie  all the others braids together, so you will create a ponytail.














Last part

Fishtail Ponytail

Since  we tie all braids together, and we have ponytail, we braided two fishtails on this ponytail, and than twist them together, and in the end tie off the braids to keep it from coming undone.

This is what we have done.








             Supplies: 
  • Brush
  • Few black or white elastic band ( you can use even colored)
  • Hairsprey ( it is not needed)
  • Moroccan Argan Oil , Liquid Crystals.

This is what we have in the end, I hope you like it and hope you will follow me for more ideas, and if you have any questions, fell free to ask me. 
Thank you all. Have a fabulous day.


Sincerely Yours Tatjana
