How to dutch braid for beginners

Dutch braids are a lot easier than they look like, but handling the strands can be quite difficult! So in this tutorial, I’m explaining exactly how I hold the strands and how I pass them from hand to hand. So if hand placement is something you are struggling with when braiding, then this might help you!

But remember that there is no right or wrong way to hold the strands, so if you are doing it differently to me, that is not wrong, and keep doing what works for you!
