The Double Dutch Up-Do Perfect for Brides, Bridesmaids, and Wedding Guests

The right hairstyle is like the crown jewel of an outfit.

Without one, your final look often feels incomplete and no time is this more true than when weddings come into play. Whether you’re attending as a guest, playing a part in the bridal party, or the one walking down the aisle, we all want to look out best.

Wedding hairstyles have a tendency to call to mind a certain look, so we turned to our girl, FP Me babe Lindsey Pengelly, for some fresh inspiration. On Monday she shared her Mohawk-inspired up-do, and today she’s back with another gorgeous styling option. Read the steps below and then let us know in the comments which hairstyle you’d like to see us tackle next!

Step 1:

This look works best with loose curls. Decide which side of your hair is thicker, that’s the said you will be doing the two braids on. Start the first dutch braid more toward the backside of your head, you want to keep enough room in the front of the braid so another dutch braid will fit. Braid the hair, secure with an elastic, then pull apart the braid! the bigger the braid the better so don’t be afraid to pull it out and make it big!

Step 2:

Start the second dutch braid right below the first braid, secure it with an elastic, and pull it apart just as you did the first.

Gather all of your hair into a low ponytail, I put the first braid in the ponytail then the braid closest to my face I wrapped around the ponytail and used a bobbi pin to secure it in place. Then add a few FP hair accessories to finish off the look.
