4 Strand Dutch Headband

Hello! Well its headband style yet again. You guys know that its super quick and easy to do on self. This headband style is bit different from regular headband style which I generally do. The different thing is that I did dutch 4 strand braid to the front of the forehead. Otherwise I usually take a chunk of hair from any one side of the ear and begin with any braid, which is then crossed horizontally to the other side of the head to give the headband look.

You’ll Need: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, bobby pins, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Taken: 5-6 mins

Skill Level:  Medium

Hair Length: Any hair length

Steps of Instructions:

  1. Begin by side parting your hair and pick a section of hair from heavier side of the parting and divide the hair into 4 strands, make sure that 3rd strand should be tiny in comparison to other three strands (this is the key to braid).
  2. Then cross 1st strand (outermost strand) under 2nd strand over 3rd strand (tiny strand), 4th strand (innermost strand) over 1st strand and under 3rd strand. (First stitch of 4 Strand braid is complete now).
  3. 3rd Strand (tiny strand) would always be at the 3rd place (this is the key,in case you get confused while braiding).
  4. Now add new hair to the outermost strand and cross it under 2nd strand over 3rd strand (tiny strand), again add new hair to 4th strand (innermost strand) cross it over 1st strand and under 3rd strand.
  5. Continue braiding till you reach ear then secure the hair with bobby underneath the chunk of hair.
  1. Pancake the braid to give the fuller effect.

Happy braiding..
