What's exactly your problem with it? I wear this rather often, it's easy and comfortable and keeps the front layers out from the face My front and side layers are a little past shoulders now but I had no trouble doing it when they were 2 inches shorter, either. If you're curious to look, I have a pic of Dutch lace braid headband in my album.
I usually start with the section of hair close to one ear and add strands from the hairline while braiding, then fix it with two small jaw-clips behind the other ear. The principle it exactly the same as lace crown braid where you take additional strands from one side of the braid only. To make it more even in its length I take more hair in the beginning and just very thin, quite transparent strands closer to the end of the band. The excess gets smoothed under the braid. Also, with me Dutch holds better than French, for some reason. HTH
