That's what this video from Hello Gorgeous is for, it'll explain the simplest method to do a Double Dutch Crown Braid.

To start, center part your hair and take a small section of frontal locks from either side. Split the sections into three and start crossing underneath. That's the main difference between Dutch and French plaits. With the French, you cross upwards rather than crossing downwards. Cross it thrice and then stretch the left part. Now start taking pieces from around and pull downwards.

Finishing Touches.

Once it gets down, tie with a regular elastic band. Now loosen, even if some pieces come out, it's not a problem because it's going to be safely clipped at the back. Repeat on the other side. When both the sides are complete, you're left with a small chunk behind. Tie any remaining hair with a shorter band and make a little, sloppy bun and pin it. Now take the plaits and tuck them over the bun. This makes the crown look higher and lovelier. Pin from all sides. You can loosen and make them look sloppier and casual. If wispy strands take over, flatten using hairspray on the back of a hard surface such as a comb.
