Dutch Braids

Hello Again!!! So, since I didn’t post yesterday, I’m posting twice today. Right now, I’m going to show you a tutorial on how to do dutch braids on your doll.

 

 

YOU WILL NEED:

LET US BEGIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

STEP ONE:

Brush out your doll’s hair so there are no knots or lumps. Make sure all of your doll’s hair is back behind her shoulders.

STEP TWO:

Locate your doll’s part and put your finger on it.

STEP THREE:

Slowly drag your finger all the way down from the part through your doll’s hair, until you reach the tips.

STEP FOUR:

Your doll’s hair should now be separated into two sections.Gently pull them away from each other to rest on opposite ends of your doll’s back.

STEP FIVE:

STEP EIGHT:

Take a small section of that section….That doesn’t sound right but you get what I mean.:)

STEP NINE:

Split THAT section into three sections. Do your best to make them as equal as possible.

STEP TEN:

Cross one strand UNDER the other, instead of over. Continue adding strips of hair to each section as you braid.

STEP ELEVEN:

Note: The doll used for this tutorial, Emily (Truly Me #59), has layers, which made it more difficult to braid her hair. I would recommend doing this hairstyle on dolls with longer, thicker hair, like Grace.

 

So-long for not-so-long,
