Double Dutch Braid Upstyle from @theconfessionsofahairstylist

Let’s be honest, there’s no one better at styling a quick yet gorgeous updo quite like our girl, Jenny Strebe @theconfessionsofahairstylist. She can get those braids full and soft, and those updos smooth and fresh in minutes. With this classic Double Dutch Braid How-To, Jenny shows you how to create the perfect woven updo. Think ’60s flower child meets English royalty—a soft yet elegant combo sure to please any Boho queen. Here’s how it’s done!



  • close formula

    Section the hair into three sections. Start with a severe side part, and then start one at the crown all the way to her nape. Go from the occipital bone to the left section of her ear, and set the upper left section away. Do the same with the right.

  • close formula

    After creating a low pony with the back section, create a simple three stranded braid and secure. Pancake and shape, before twisting up into a small bun. Secure to her head with a bobby pin.

  • close formula

    Release the right section, creating a simple Dutch braid that incorporates the whole section of hair. Leave the hair unbraided at the ends and secure with an elastic. Repeat this same process on the other side.

  • close formula

    Pancake the hair in each braid, giving it more shape and volume. Then, secure the right braid over the top of the bun with a few bobby pins. Repeat this process with the right braid. Tuck the remaining hair strands into the bottom of the updo.

    Finish this look off with a little bit of hairspray.
