Scrolling through instagram the other day, I came across a hairstyle similar to this one and instantly fell in love. I couldn’t resist recreating it for a tutorial. I love the texture of the curly hair in the bun and the edgy vibe of the braids. This would be such a fun style for summer especially if you have naturally curly hair. What do you think? Let me know in the comment. Thanks so much for reading! xo, Missy
After so many requests for a tutorial of this hairstyle and I’m excited to finally be sharing it! This hairstyle is so similar to the pull through braid. It’s not extremely difficult but it does take a bit of patience to get all the way through it.
It’s a really fun hairstyle to wear and it’ll be perfect for the Summer months when the weather heats up. It’s literally great for playing sports, hanging out at the beach, camping, working out, you name it. Give it a try, I have no doubt it’s going to become your new favorite hairstyle.
Step 1 / Begin by dividing out a section of hair at the crown and tie it off with an elastic band.
Step 2 / Clip this first ponytail out of the way.
Step 3 / Then divide out a new section of hair from above the ears and tie this together with a second elastic underneath the first one.
Step 4 / With the top ponytail, divide off a small section of hair and drop it down next to the second ponytail.
Step 5 / Then divide out a small section from the second ponytail and hold it in the left hand.
Step 6 / Then divide off a new section from the top ponytail and drop it down.
Step 7 / Then take a small section from the bottom ponytail, holding it in the left hand.
Step 8 / Repeat this pattern, alternating small sections of hair between the top and bottom ponytail, keeping the sections from the bottom ponytail in the left hand while dropping down the hair from the top ponytail.
Step 9 / Once the two ponytails are divided up into small, alternating sections then take the hair being held in the left hand and clip it out of the way.
Step 10 / Now divide out a new section of hair from behind the ears, combine it with the hair divided out from the first ponytail and tie it together with an elastic band.
Step 11 / Let down the hair clipped away and go back over the first loop, pulling on the edges to make it fuller.
Step 12 / Now repeat the same steps with the two new sections of hair dividing them into small sections, alternating the top hair with the bottom and holding the hair from the second ponytail in the left hand.
Step 13 / Then clip away the hair from the bottom ponytail, pick up the rest of the hair and tie it together with the hair from the top ponytail.
Step 14 / Then let down the hair that was clipped away and go back over the second section of hair, pulling on the edges to make it fuller.
Step 15 / Now repeat those same steps and create two more sections of the braid. *You can create as many sections of the braid as you’d like.
Step 16 / Set the style with hairspray and smooth down any flyaways.
Hey guys! The crown braid has always been one of my favorite hairstyles. It can be worn with every hair texture and (most) lengths, and can even be worn with your hair halfway up. Instead of always wearing it with a french or dutch braid, try it this way with a twist braid.
If you saw this hairstyle on my instagram (@missysueblog) then I’m happy to say I’m finally sharing the tutorial with you today! This is inspired by HairandMakeupbySteph who has always been an inspiration to me. Don’t forget to like and subscribe for new videos! Thanks for stopping by! xo, Missy
Step 1 / Begin by parting the hair on the right side.
Step 2 / Divide out a section of hair at the crown, twist it together and pin it at the back of the head.
Step 3 / Now divide the rest of the hair into a left and right side.
Step 4 / With the hair on the left side, divide out a section of hair to frame the face, then pick up a section and divide it into two smaller pieces.
Step 5 / Then cross the left strand over the right.
Step 6 / Add in a new section to both sides, twist each section towards the face and then cross the left strand over the right strand.
Step 7 / Then add a new section into both sides again, twist the sections toward the face, and cross the left strand over the right strand.
Step 8 / Repeat those steps, crossing the left strand over the right strand while adding new sections into both sides, twisting the sections towards the face, and working down the left side of the head until all of the hair from the left side is added in.
Step 9 / Once all of the hair is added into the twist, continue twisting the section down to the ends, then tie off the end with an elastic band.
Step 10 / Now repeat those steps and create a second twist braid with the hair on the right side.
Step 11 / Once both braids are done, take the ends and remove the elastic bands from the ends of the braids.
Step 12 / Wrap them up along the opposite sides of the head, criss-crossing them at the top and pin them in place with bobby pins.
Today’s tutorial is a hairstyle that every girl should know how to do. It’s perfect for all year round and never goes out of style. If you have already mastered and love the french braid then the next braid on your list should be the dutch braid.
This is a look I wear all the time but have never shared a stand alone tutorial for it. I love hearing how my tutorials have taught you different styles and techniques so I hope you take that away from this video as well. Try it out and share it with your friends; I’m sure they’ll love it if you do. Thanks so much for reading! xo, Missy

Dutch Side Braid Instructions:
Step 1 / Begin by parting the hair on the right side.
Step 2 / Divide out a section of hair to frame the face.
Step 3 / Pick up a section on the left side of the part and divide this into three pieces for the braid.
Step 4 / Start the dutch braid by crossing the right strand under the middle strand. Then cross the left strand under the middle strand.
Step 5 / Now cross the right strand under the middle, pick up a new section and cross it under and into the middle.
Step 6 / Then cross the left strand under the middle, pick up a new section and cross it under and into the middle strand.
Step 7 / Repeat those steps, crossing the side strands under the middle strand while bringing new sections into the braid, keeping the braid along the left side of the head.
Step 8 / Once all of the hair from along the part line is brought into the braid, then start adding in hair from the right side of the part, sweeping it around the back of the head adding it into the braid.
Step 9 / Then once the braid reaches the nape of the neck, and all of the hair is brought into the braid, then continue braiding the section a little further down and tie off the end of the braid with an elastic band.
Step 10 / Now go back over the braid, pulling on the edges to make the braid wider and more full.
Step 11 / Then set the style in place with a medium or firm hold hairspray.
*Tip: If little pieces fall out of the braid, at the back of the head, use bobby pins to pin them into the back of the braid.
