What are Dutch braids?
The Dutch braid looks as if it were laid on top of the hair. It stands out clearly on top of the head and has more volume than a classic braid. The Dutch braid is created like the French braid – only in reverse. That’s the point of difference: Instead of placing each newly added section of hair over the previous section, new hair is braided in from below. This creates a three-dimensional effect.
