How to Do Dutch Braids on Yourself

Ready to learn how to do dutch braids on yourself? Our simple video and step-by-step guide will help you perfect the look every time.

Step One: Create a Centre Parting

First, brush out and smooth your hair before creating a centre parting all the way down your head and separate the two sections. 

Step Two: Use Hair Oil

Work a generous amount of hair oil through each side of your hair to make it super smooth and prevent any flyaways. 

Step Three: Clip in Your Hair Extensions

Next, section one side of your hair into two parts by gathering the top section and creating a neat parting diagonally down towards the nape of your neck. Add your set of Foxy Locks  3-clip weft hair extensions close to this parting, ensuring the wefts are clipped in upside down so they remain hidden in this style.

Then, simply add a set of 2-clip weft extensions above this as normal to add extra thickness. Repeat this process on the other side of your hair.

Step Four: Create Your Dutch Braids

Concentrating on one side of your hair, start by taking the top front section and begin a tight standard plait. Incorporate additional strands of hair underneath your plait as you go along, ensuring you keep a tight tension on the braid for a sleek finish. Continue this diagonally along towards the back of your head until the entire side of your hair is included in the braid and tie with clear hair elastic.

Final Step: Repeat and Perfect

Once you’ve finished one side, simply repeat on the other side of your head, ensuring your braids are symmetrical. Finally, spray with hairspray to smooth out and prevent any baby hairs and flyaways coming loose. Now you know how to do dutch braids on yourself, you can do this style for a variety of occasions!
