Much like everyone else, the ELE team are going a bit stir crazy in isolation. I, personally, have been spending a lot of my time on TikTok pretending to be young. My favourite thing on there is @bradmondo reviewing at-home dye jobs.

Dutch Braids (akin to Cornrows) are an inverse version of a french braid. Where a French Braid sits flat, Dutch Braids sit atop the hair.

Where Cornrows sit tight to the head, Dutch Braids are typically braided at an angle to increase volume, and so they sit off the head more.
