If you've been scrolling through TikTok or browsing online lately, you've probably noticed a trend that's taking over by storm – double dutch braids. These aren't just any braids; we're talking long double dutch braids extensions sweeping, to vibrant, colorful creations. Even Paris Hilton rocked her own pink double dutch braids at Burning Man! One common thread among these eye-catching styles is the use of hair extensions. Wondering how to achieve this look? You're in the right place! We're here to guide you through creating your own stunning double dutch braids with extensions.

Your Braiding Essentials:

First things first, let's gather your tools for this glamorous transformation:
Premium 100% human hair extensions, like the ones from Atelier Extensions, for that unmatched quality and style.

  • A precision comb to get those parts just right.
  • Sturdy hair ties for a hold that lasts.
  • Hairspray to keep everything in place.
  • Optional: Color extensions for an extra pop of fun.

Prepare Your Extensions: Smooth out your extensions with a gentle brush to ensure they're ready to blend seamlessly with your hair.

Section Your Hair: Create a precise middle part from the front to the back of your head, setting the stage for symmetrical braiding.

Prep for Braiding: Lightly apply a styling product to your hair for better grip and control during the braiding process.

Add in the Extensions: Here's where you can truly personalize your look. Apply extensions that match your hair color for added fullness, or for a more daring style, a double dutch braid with color extensions to add that vibrant pop of color.

Start the Dutch Braiding Process: Use the underhand technique, crossing strands beneath each other, and adding hair to each section as you braid down.

Continue with Consistent Braiding: Keep your braiding even and firm for a neat and polished look.

Secure Your Braids: Once you reach the ends, tie off the braids and replicate the process on the other side for a balanced look.

Final Touches for a Fuller Look: Gently pull at the sides of your braids to add fullness and finish with a spritz of hairspray to keep everything in place.
