Zig-Zag Dutch Braid Tutorial

Creativity of the hairstyle is not always in creating a new style of doing hair. Sometimes it’s all about organizing the current trend in a new way. Having the regular Dutch braid done in a zigzag pattern will add a fresh new look to your appearance. The style allows you to have a complex braid combination, which loops on the back. While at first glance it looks like a rather complicated style to get, in reality it’s much easier to create. Have a look at the zig-zag Dutch braid tutorial and set your creativity free, when it comes to stylish hairstyles!

Zig-Zag Dutch Braid Tutorial


You need to get around one inch section of hair either starting behind your bangs or using bangs in the process. The section needs to be split into three parts. The parts need to be braided into a Dutch braid. In the process you should proceed towards the right ear. And when you reach an area a bit away from your right ear, you need to twist the braid and continue the process towards to the left ear. The looping process should be repeated as many times as the braid still gets its way.

The amount of the loops totally depends on the hair and the way you make the braid. You need to avoid making it loose, as it will not have that effective appearance at the end. This needs to be done at the final stage.

When done with the back area, the rest of the braid needs to be pleated into a typical braid and secured with a clear elastic band.

The crossing braid, which will have a zigzag form, will look great when loosened with fingers. This will not only make it seem more dramatic and girly, but will help to cover the blank areas in between the zigzags.

To get rid of the longer tail braid you can wrap it back over the last section of the braid and pin it with the help of bobby pins. If you left your bangs of the style, you can then style the bangs and secure the overall hairstyle applying some amount of light hairspray to the loosened braid and bangs. And here you are done with your new zig-zag Dutch braid!
