How To Do An Inside-Out Braid (It's Easy, Promise!)

See more about this Episode
We'll admit it: More than a couple times, we've (accidentally) worn a shirt backwards, only to find we actually like it better with the tag in the front. But, consider this take on the French braid a very deliberate switcheroo. This style, the Dutch braid, is your classic French braid turned inside out.
The finished look is way less "Oops!" and way more "How did you do that?" But, in fact, the process is the same one we mastered in middle school, only reversed. We know, we know: Don't try to re-invent the wheel. But, this sleek, sophisticated 'do is proof that shaking up the most classic of styles can yield totally chic results.
