So many of you asked for this hair tutorial, so here it is!  This is my Triple Dutch Braid Half Updo.  I can actually wear it for two days.  The first day I leave it half up, and the second day I wrap my remaining hair into a bun.  It’s simple, easy, and super cute!  I’ve also linked my favorite products for you below.

To do this hairstyle: 

  1. Separate the top half of your hair into three sections- 2 sides and the center.  Pull back the two sides and secure them with a hair tie.
  2. Dutch braid the center of your hair.  I highly recommend adding dry shampoo and teasing before braiding.  This allows for more volume!  Tie off braid with a clear hair tie.  Obviously I ran out 😉 
  3. Repeat step 2 for your left side.  Again make sure to tease and dry shampoo your hair before braiding.  
  4. Repeat step 2 for right side. 
  5. Hairspray all 3 braids and let sit for 5 minutes.  Then pull on the braids to poof slightly.  

*AS I mentioned, you can prolong this hairdo by wearing it for a second day.  All you need to do is wrap your loose hair up in a messy bun!  I recommend using a clear hair tie for this as well. 

And here are my favorite styling products:

  1. WHAT?! I am SO not great at doing my hair. I have 2 go-tos: down and curly or up in a bun. Sometimes I’ll wear it down and straight, sometimes the bun is ballet-style, while other times it’s messy, sometimes I may braid my hair but it’s usually when I’m about to go for a run. I admire people who can do their hair like this; it’s gorgeous!

  2. Oh my goodness this looks SO CUTE. I wish I had that much hair, but alas, mine is too short and too thin to do anything like that. Your braids turned out gorgeous, though!!

  3. I love the way this looks! I definitely need to start trying more braids!! I’ve never been great at them, but I know I just need to keep trying them!

  4. Gorgeous! I’ll give this a try but I’m notoriously bad at braiding my own hair.. and not sure if I can get my boyfriend to do it for me :’)
