What is the difference between Dutch braid and French braid?

Dutch braids and French braids should not be confused because they are a reverse of each other. They both have three strands, but the French style uses an overhand weaving method while the Dutch style uses an underhand technique. That is why Dutch hairstyles are also called inverted French braids or pineapple braids.

Are Dutch braids cornrows?

Dutch hairstyles and cornrows are both plaited using the underhand method. However, cornrows are tighter and smaller, while the Dutch ones are more loose and bigger.

Which Dutch braid hairstyle did you find interesting to wear now? They are all amazing, and you can choose to interchange them for an ultimate fairytale look. Happy braiding!
