Braiding is like an art form, and some techniques are hard to learn. The delicate side braids require a different method to get that lovely, linked look, although the half braid in the center is a classic, rather perfect French plait. Keep in mind, though, that once you learn a few of the core French braid hairstyles, everything else is easy.

The Dutch Braid

The Dutch inside-out braid itself appears unusual and stylish, but it can also serve a great base for more elaborate and fancy hairstyles. You have probably seen an awesome romantic braided Dutch flower hairstyle with braid sections settling at the back of your head as though flower petals.
