One hairdo that has the power to add oomph to a first-date outfit, sass to a school uniform, and elegance to a wedding dress, is the upside-down Dutch braid. Try it out!

Step 1: Section out the top portion of hair, start just above your ears, move towards the center and stop when both fingers reach your crown. Tie the section into a tight bun. If you have thick hair, make sure to add a good chunk of hair in this section so it’s easier to Dutch braid it later.

Step 2: Divide the lower section down the middle, into two equal halves. Start an inch above the base of your head and take two sections from the inner side of each half and bring them together. 

Step 3: Separate the center section into three equal sections and begin Dutch braiding upwards. Don’t add in uneven sections of hair instead try keeping every section the same size. Make sure to take your time while braiding so your Dutch braid is tidy. 

Step 4: Open out the top bun and combine it with the braid into a high ponytail and you’ve got yourself a quirky upside-down Dutch braid! Style the top section before combining it with the braid for a more elegant look. 

Tip: Don’t open out the braid at the end, leave it within the ponytail for some edge.
