To create the braid, gather a section of the hair at the top of your head and divide it into three equal sections. Cross the right section of the hair under the center section, and the pull the center section of hair over to the left. Pull the left section under the center section, then pull the center section of hair over to the right. Continue to do this process until you get to the end of your braid.
Once you get to the ends of creating your Dutch braid stitch, secure the ends with an elastic band. You can opt for leaving the end out or tucking it in to create a cute bun. For the latter, slide in a few hairpins to secure the seams in place.
