If you are getting tired of dutch and french braids, but still want a double braid, then you might want to give a french rope braid a try. It will give you a similar look, but there are only 2 strands to braid with instead of 3.
How To Infinity Braid For Beginners
An infinity braid looks a lot harder than it is. It’s so easy to do, but it does take quite some time to do because you are working with such small sections. You can take much bigger sections and save time, but you will lose some of the delicate detail.

How To 5 Strand Dutch Braid
This looks difficult and I must admit, it’s not the easiest braid to do. You have to maneuver 5 strands at once and add hair to the braid on both sides, but when it’s done, it looks so beautiful and is so unique, so you have to give it a try!
How To Double Dutch Infinity Braid
I love the look of this braid and if you are going for the “chunky braid” style, then this is the braid for you! It does take quite some time to do, but you can save some time by taking bigger sections or ditching the 2 braids and only going for one. The single braid will be linked further down the blog post.
How To Ribbon Braid Step By Step
A ribbon braid is perfect for a high pony and can be the cherry on top for a well-thought-out outfit. You can add whatever color ribbon you want and if you don’t have any ribbon, then you can replace it will 2 small sections of hair.

How To Double Dutch Fishtail Braid
A double dutch fishtail braid will take a while to do, but it looks amazing! I wouldn´t say this is an alternative to the double french braid or the double dutch braid because of how long it takes. Look wise they are very similar, but this braid takes about 30 minutes longer to do!
