How to: DNA BRAID / Coolest Braid For Summer

guys look back to my channel and welcome
back for another hair tutorial Tuesday today I want to share with you the
coolest braids that I have ever seen and it’s this super chic super cool DNA
braid I am in love with this braid imagine seeing somebody just
rockin this out in public I think that it is so unique and different I will
warn you though it requires a lot of arm work if you’re doing this on yourself
but it will not go unnoticed the technique though is quite simple to do
so let’s go ahead and get started I’m starting with my hair in a ponytail and
for the first step what you want to do is divide your ponytail into three
pieces you want your outside sections to be the same size as each other and your
middle section just to be slightly smaller the reasoning is because we’re
going to be weaving the outside sections around the middle section so you want
them to be a little bit larger once you have your three sections they should
look a little similar to this next step I’m going to start my braid on the left
side grab a small to medium sized piece of hair from the outside of your left
section then take that piece and bring it over the left section and then
underneath the middle section and just join it into that right section so now
on the right side grab a small to medium sized piece from the outside of our
right section then take that piece and bring it underneath the right section
and then over top of the middle section and join it into that left section and
those are all the steps to create this braid now it might not look like much
right now but I promise it’ll all come together
so again on that left side grab a small to medium sized piece you don’t have to
be precise with this and bring it over top of that left section and then
underneath the middle keeping everything nice and tight and then join it into
your right section and again on the right side grab a small piece from the
outside of your right section bring it underneath the right section over top of
the middle and join it into the left section when
you’re on the left side just remember bring your piece over and then under and
when you’re on the right side do the opposite bring your piece under and then
over this braid is definitely repetitive and I find it super helpful to keep
thinking of the pattern in my mind as I’m going so it’s simply over and then
under and then under and then over and you’ll find that your hands will get
used to the motion and you’ll just fly through this braid as you’re braiding
you just want to try your best to keep everything nice and tight this braid is
quite forgiving but keeping everything tight will help keep the braid that
twists so it looks just like a DNA strand also if you find out one of your
side sections is getting smaller than the other side it’s possible that you’re
grabbing larger sections from one side which is not a problem just balance it
out by grabbing smaller size pieces from the side with less hair and it will even
itself out again and like I mentioned earlier this braid is super forgiving so
if you need to take breaks go ahead the braid can hold its own I personally have
to take two breaks my arms around fire and even today they are I don’t know if
it’s because I worked out or if it’s because of this braid and as you’re
braiding because we are only using the side sections and braiding around the
middle they will become shorter than that middle section so just go as far as
you can until you reach the end of your side sections or until you’re too
tired and then secure it with a hair elastic you could create a different
break with the remaining ends you could curl them or just simply leave them
straight like I did so there we have you guys that is how you recreate this
really cool and unique DNA braid you guys have to let me know what you
thought in the comments and let me know if you love it as much as I do now
if you think that this braid is going to be too hard on your arms or you gonna
get frustrated I totally understand but you could rock this as a side ponytail
or even just braid your ponytail halfway down I think it would look really cool
or you could just show your friends how to do it and have them do it for you but
I think this hairstyle would look so sick for a night out if you did it like
super sleek back in a dramatic cat eye I think that it
look so cool but it could also be really casual for the day time like I would
love to do this on my niece if she had longer hair could but I doubt she would sit
that long anyways but I really hope you guys enjoyed this video if you did don’t
forget to give it a thumbs up and you guys have been loving at my last video I
can’t believe it I’ll link it down below as well at the end of this video but
thank you guys for all the support and we’re almost at a hundred thousand
subscribers I’m incredibly thankful for each and every one of you so thank you
for supporting me this far I’m so excited to reach that milestone with you
guys so thanks again and I’ll talk to you guys in my next video bye

  2. Without watching the video it looks like you did a barrel and a cobra stitch together- lets go see how it's actually achieved XD

  3. My arms were ok but I was sitting outside and the wind picked up and I started losing my sections.

  4. This is so cool, love it! I love your hair color, and it's so healthy and shiny! I've also binge watched your videos but now can't remember if you've done hair products or that type of favorites videos? Routine, get to know me (send in q's), & beauty videos are always fun to watch too. Congratulations on almost 100,000!! Woot woot! ๐Ÿ’•

  5. This is amazing! I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome โ€“ a Genetic Connective Tissue Disorder, and braids of all sorts are my go tos. I've been on the hunt for a couple new braids / styles for summer, and I definitely just found my newest challenge!!! Perfect for all the Drs appts!

  6. People be like : curly haired girls can do what they want with their hair!

  13. I LOVE this braid! It's beautiful and has just a touch of lovable nerdiness! What tips would you give for someone who has very long hair and is looking for braids (besides the basic) to do? I have 36 inches of hair and I want to do more than just buns and ponytails. What would be a good braid to start with? Thanks! Love your videos!

  14. Hey Alex! Thanks for the tutorial, I did this and got a ton of compliments ๐Ÿ™‚
    Can you do a 360 in your next ponytail style? I also am a side part/ low sweep girl and was wondering how you manage high ponytail styles in the bang area, but one way or the other none of your ponytail videos show you from the front… ๐Ÿ˜…

  15. Your hair is incredible!!! I'm sure you hear that all of the time though. That one tutorial I could have my boyfriend do on me because he does know how to macrame'!
