A Dutch braid, sometimes known as an inverted French braid or simply an inverted braid, is a popular braided hairstyle. Similar to a French braid, the Dutch braid consists of three groups of hair braided together to create a single intertwined piece. The basic technique can be used to create a number of different, often exotic looking, hairstyles that can fit any situation and occasion. A Dutch braid can be used on any hair that is strong enough, thick enough, and long enough to support a French braid, and can be done on its own or as part of a more complicated hairstyle.
While in appearance the Dutch braid may seem similar to a French braid, the difference comes in how the left and right strands of hair are interwoven with the middle piece. A French braid weaves the three strands of hair together with the sides over the middle piece. The Dutch braid, however, brings the side pieces under the middle part.
Remember: The dutch braid is extremely simple, it’s the same thing as a French braid the only difference is you are pulling the pieces of hair under the braid, instead of over the braid like you would in French.
You can adapt the angle and shape of these braids to suit your hair length. Even in short hair you can do the braid across the front of your hairline. Beautiful !Angela.
