Step number 1: Preparation
As this is a quick look, there isn’t much preparation. If you already have your hair extensions in and they are already wet, great, if not spritz your extensions with water until damp then put a full set in. Brush your hair so your hair is tangle free and if you want your hair to stay in lovely waves. After you take the braids out and add a touch if leave in conditioner so your hair stays silky and smooth. Make sure you are gentle when combing your hair it is easy to drag your hair when it is wet and it is easier to break.
Step number 2: Create the braids
To start this look create a centre part from your hairline to the nape of your neck. If you have curly hair use a comb to make sure it is dead straight. Tie the left side out of the way, then take a small section from next to the left side of the part. Split it into three equal sections cross the left section under the middle section, then the right. You will now have the first row of your dutch braid.
Make sure you are happy with the size of each of these sections. This will determine the size of your waves when you take your braids out. If you want tighter waves later remember to pull these sections tight. If not cross them under each other more loosely.
At each cross add some hair from either side to make your hair consistent with the width and keep your hair out of your face. Keep doing this working directly backwards. After you reach the nape of your neck continue with a regular three-strand braid and secure before you repeat with the other half of your hair.
Step number 3: For the shape
This last bit is super simple and can work if you have layered locks or not. Simply cross the left braid so that it is draped over your right shoulder. Cross your right braid so that it is draped over your left shoulder.
Pick up the braid that is over the right shoulder and tuck the ends of it underneath. The right braid this might be near the ear but if you have long hair it might be further up. Use bobby pins to secure. I suggest using a few as your hair is heavier when it is wet. Repeat on the other side and you are done.
