Do you like braiding as much as we do? Many girls confuse two beautiful braids: French and Dutch. Let's see the difference!
There are many types of braids that girls practice and like to do for different occasions. Some braids have a formal texture and are suitable for formal occasions, while others are more suitable for everyday life. The most popular pigtails for girls are Dutch and French.
People often confuse the two; So we've put together a guide to the differences between Dutch and French braids.
This style is a classic braid with three strands of hair in a braid. The difference is that with each turn, a few more lines are added to give it a classic look.
However, the braiding technique is identical from the left tendril crossing over the middle strand and the same repetition for the tendril on the right. In this way, a girl can create many different textures and styles of braids.
This hairstyle is the opposite of the French braid, also known as the inside-out braid. This method is similar to French braids, but in this case you have to place the hair under the three-part braid and weave it step by step.
Difference Between Dutch Braids and French Braids
Dutch braids and French braids, both are common and preferred by girls. Although they have many similarities and differences as well, they give off a distinct look when finished.
Both Dutch braids and French braids can be worn in a variety of way that suits both casual as well as formal events. You can make these braids during school time, for bridal showers as well as for the wedding events.
Various hair decorations like flowers or pins with gems and stones can be added to these braids to give off an elegant and beautiful look to the braid.
French Braids vs. Dutch Braids
The main difference between French and Dutch braids is whether you cross the braid at the top or the bottom. When the hair is crossed, you weave the braid into your hair, like a French braid. However, when you pass under another section of hair, the braid is located at the top of the hair, forming a Dutch braid.
For me, French braids are more classic. It keeps your hair away from your face. I wear it when I'm concentrating on work, sleeping in at night, or exercising. I think it looks classy and goes with it on the way out.
Dutch braids, on the other hand, are more fashionable. Recently, it has become popular with the rise of hair extensions and the desire for long, thick hair. (You don't need to attach ugly hair to your hair to create either look.) With Dutch braids, you can pretend your hair is loose. Because the braids are at the top of your head, you can pull them out to make them look fuller and fuller. This does create a more modern, stylish look and also causes clothes to fall off throughout the day. When I wear my Dutch braid, it's easier to get out of sync.
