This fabulous includes two strand twists and a Dutch braid to make a masculine protective style.

He got so many compliments on this style!

I hope you enjoy this tutorial!

A very masculine way to show off all that hard earned length!


For styling the hair you’ll need:

As always, I started with clean, detangled, stretched hair.

Everyone loved this style!


Who says protective styling has to be boring??!!

Detailed Mens Braids Step By Step Instructions:

This is what Wesley’s hair looked like before we began. Big, but neatly detangled and conditioned. Ready for styling! Oh, and for those who asked…my siblings NEVER wear big stretched hair as a style. It’s too much hair for them to manage and it ends up matting and tangling, which stinks =(

I’ve found that parting on a slant makes for easier, faster twisting, which is what I decided to do this time. I parted out small, half inch by half inch sections and two strand twisted all the way to end. For smoother, more even twists, I try to keep the same amount of tension all the way down and twist the hair as tightly as I can.

And finally, this is what a handful of his two strand twists look like. I like this size because they last 5-6 weeks, but only take about two hours to put in and half an hour to remove. We’ve found the size that works for us. Hope this helped!
