Hey everyone! I’m Jordan from Braids by Jordan and today I’m gonna be showing you how to do a double dutch half up style. If you have not already comment to Hairstyles, make sure to hit the comment button and give this post a big thumbs up. So, let’s get started. I started off with my hair parted to one side and then on the heavy side I divided kind of a rectangle shape from inline with my eyebrows, straight back to the end of my part line. Then I’m moving my hair over to the other side and clipping it down to keep it out of the way. Then make one more diagonal part about an inch or so back from the hairline towards the back of the head. I’m starting with the back section, so just twist the front section out of the way with some clips. Now we are gonna start a dutch braid so take a section of hair from the front corner and divide it into three.

Take the back piece and cross it underneath into the middle and then take the front piece and cross it underneath into the middle. Then again take the back piece but this time we are gonna add in small section of hair. So take the new section, add it in, and then cross it underneath and then we are going to repeat with the front piece, so take a new section, add it in, and crossem both underneath into the middle. Then you are just going to repeat those steps until you run out of hair to add in, just make sure that you are braiding towards the back of the head. Once I have ran out of hair to add in, I went back and pancaked the braid by pulling gently on the edges to give the braid more volume. And then I just continued a regular braid for a few extra stitches to make sure that it was long enough to reach the back of my head. Once the braid is long enough, temporarily secure it with a clear baby elastic. Then repeat with the front section.
On the opposite side, take a section of hair and start twisting it back, adding in hair only to the top side as you go. Once you reach the center of the head, you can go back and carefully soften it and then take the rest of the hair in between the twist and the braids along with both braids and secure all into a ponytail. Take out the elastics from the ends of the braid and then wrap a second elastic around the ponytail. On the last wrap, only pull the hair halfway through to create a loop. Take the tail and twist it around the elastics. Pull on the edges to give it some more volume and then pin it in place. Once all the ends are tucked in, you can twist and adjust any of the pieces of the loop with bobby pins. And that’s it.
