The Difference Between the French and the Dutch Braid

The Difference Between the French and the Dutch Braid

There are two types of all-gathered hair braid – french braid and dutch braid. Or at least, these are the most famous braids of all. I will show you step-by-step tutorials for both of them and once you know the technique, you can choose the braid that you want to create. Let’s start with the French braid. Take a look at the steps:

  • First, you have to comb the hair. My recommendation is to apply smoothing mousse so it will be easier for you to split the strands. Comb the whole hair to the back and take three thin strands from the center back of the hair.

  • Cross the strand at the left over the strand in the middle. And then cross the strand at the right over the first strand.

  • Keep up with this routine by adding hair from the sides in order to tuck in the whole hair into the braid.

You can see that the French braid is flat, while the Dutch braid is more like 3D. Take a look at the next tutorial and you will see the difference between the French braid and the Dutch braid. Here we go again:

  • Take the left strand again, but this time pull it to the other side under the middle section, not on top of it.

  • Do the same with the right strand – cross it over UNDER the strand, not on top of it.

  • And this is how the Dutch braid is created.

In the last picture, you can see the difference between the two types of all-gathered hair braids – the french one is flat and the dutch braid is bunchy. Which one do you like the most?
