3 Must-Try Braids For Beginners
First, start out with learning the basic braid. I would recommend doing the basic braid about 10 times or more, so you really get the feel of where the strands are going and how the technique works.
When you have mastered the basic braid, then move on to the french braid, as the core of the braid the same, but in the french braid you just add some hair from the sides into the braid. Like the basic braid, I would reccomend braiding your hair into a french braid a few times, before moving on to the next braid.
So you made it to the dutch braid! This braid has 99% the same technique as the french braid. The only differens is that you cross the hair under instead of over.
So before you try a dutch braid, go back to the basic braid, and try braiding it again, but this time try braiding the hair under instead of over, to get a feel of how the dutch braid works.
