Want Kardashian hair – then this is the one for you. Although Dutch braiding has been around for a lot longer than the Kardashians! If you can plait then you can do this hairstyle. It can take a bit of practice to get your fingers going the opposite way to normal plaiting but once you get the hang of it, it’s super simple.


  • 2 elastic bands


  1. Section three strands of hair on each side of your child's temple.
  2. Instead of passing the strands over each other, plait them as normal but pass them under each other.
  3. Continue gathering hair from each side and passing under the three strands.
  4. Tie off the ends with an elastic.

  • I practice and practice these braids but could never get the hang of them


  • Stick at practicing this one, it can get a little tricky but is super cute when finished


  • Pretty much two French plaits, that’s what I’ve always called them anyway. A style of plait I have never been able to do


  • Must try this one


  • Love this my Daughter is watching it with me :)

  • Looks like a French plait time two. No matter how much I try or practice, I just can’t get this one to work

    • Yeah same with me, my fingers/hands don’t want to twist the opposite way
