I saw this style going around on Pinterest recently and I loved it! It looks so intricate and cool. I just love the braid in a braid look! This style is a bit edgy and would be perfect for older girls and women, but I think it looks great on my little one here too. And it holds up nicely for sports and other activities.
This style is a Dutch braid (refers to the hair being braided in UNDER versus OVER in a French) and it uses the 5 strand ribbon braid technique (which I have a tutorial for here) but instead of ribbon, you use microbraids. It may seem complicated, but it’s not! I think that with a little time and practice, anyone can get this awesome style down!
Let’s get started on learning this 5 strand braid with microbraids!
Supplies you’ll need: hairbrush, 3 small elastics, and optional – some hairspray
Time Needed: 10 minutes
