The Dutch Spit is a three-strand pigtail with the addition of extra. But the strands are not laid on top, as when weaving a French braid, but under it, so it is also called reverse French. Weave it very simple at home. On the basis of a simple Dutch braid, you can create both everyday and evening hairstyles with your own hands. Below are step-by-step instructions for weaving a braid in Dutch and hairstyles from it.

Variations of the Dutch pigtails and their weaving patterns

Weave simple Dutch braids

  1. Take three strands in the spot where the spit starts. Lay the left strand under the middle, then the right.
  2. Separate a small strand to the left of the pigtail, add it to the strand on the same side, and again lay it under the middle one. Then, repeat from the right side.
  3. Continue to weave to the desired length. When all the curls are braided, start weaving a simple three-strand braid, laying them under the braid.
  4. To make an openwork pigtail, hold the end of the hair with one hand, and gently pull the hinges with the other.

  2. Braid from the first part of a simple Dutch braid, secure its end with an elastic band.
  3. Continue to weave from the second part, secure with a rubber band.
