Bang braids are quickly becoming hot go-to hair style. They are perfect for taking unruly strands off your face and pulling hair back on humid days. For a bold look, ditch the headband and follow the steps below to master the Large Dutch Bang Braid.
- Start with loose hair
- Section off the amount of hair you’ll need for your braid and clip the rest of your hair back so it’s out of the way.
- Start french braiding your hair. With a dutch braid, instead of gathering hair and placing strands over each other, you place strands under each other.
- Continue to braid across the front of the head where your bangs should be until you reach the other side.
- Finish the braid off normally and secure with an elastic. Then, take a bobby pin and secure the hanging braid behind your ear.
This look is great worn casual or formal. For a casual look, wear hair down and in waves or curls for a care-free look. To wear formal, gather the rest of your hair in a loose side bun or pony tail and voila! Instant glam!
