3D Split Braid Three Different Looks

Hey everyone. I’m Abby from LA, and today I’m with Kamri. And we are going to show you how to do the D split braid. Now, this technique was new to me. One of you guys sent it in on my email, which I loved as soon as I saw. So thank you for the idea. This technique, it is so simple. It’s just such a basic, basic way to braid hair, but it is totally different, gives a really unique look that I think you could really play with in wedding hair all the way down to toddler hair, wet hair, dry hair. So you are going to love this one just because it really spans a lot. That’s perfect. Now just for the sake of teaching you guys really clear tutorial on this one, I have put her hair into a ponytail, and we are going to just work with this today. So I’m going to take her hair and divide it into three sections, just as though you were going to do a regular braid.

I’m going to try to make them even. So three sections. Now, on a regular braid, you would take this middle piece and go out and over, and you’d take the middle piece and go out and over, like that. The only difference between a regular braid and this braid is that you are going to split this outer piece. So I’m going to reach my finger between this strand like this, reach through and grab that middle strand, and pull it through. And then recombine the strands, the two pieces, into the one strand in the middle again. So I will show you again on this side. Put my finger through, reach through and grab that middle section, put both pieces around it, and then recombine them in the center. And we are going to go back to the left side, reach through, grab that piece, reconnect them. Put your finger through, reach through, and reconnect them. And we are going to just continue doing this all the way down the hair. You can see that it is pretty basic. I mean, this to me qualifies as a daddy do, because I think there are dads that could do this one. This one really has a lot of options around it. Continue just reaching through and grabbing it, so again, comb this out a little.

Put your finger through the middle, reach through, grab the entire center section, put it through, and then recombine those two pieces. And we are going to keep working down as we go. Such a great hairstyle. This would be perfect for straight out of the water, if you have a child that’s a swimmer. In the summertime when their hair is wet, this one’s going to hold is out of their face, keep it secure, and, you know. Great one straight out of the shower, if you are running late for school, anything like that. For wedding hair, I think you could play with this one by doing a low ponytail with half your hair and doing fancy curls, and then pulling some of these from the sides and doing these really loose braids with this technique, and putting it into that low bun, so it’d be like a braid over the curls. So pretty. So when you get down to the end, you are just going to work until you run out of hair. And the reason I’m calling it D, you can start to see, I’m sure, is because this particular technique I’m just about there, one more, maybe OK. And I’m just about there. So now I’m just going to secure it with an elastic so that it holds. Now the reason it is D is because kind of our like our D round braid, this particular technique if you look here’s the top braid, looks like a normal braid, but then guess what? Bam. You have another braid on the sides, and then you flip it over, and bam, there’s a braid on that side. So it creates almost like a cube, really. Like all four sides are braided, which is so fun.

And then just to make it a little fancier we are putting a little cute accessory in her hair. And you are done. If you wanted it even to look more grown up, you could pancake this part in here and make it really fluffy and soft. I mean, really, so many options, my mind is spinning. Let’s do the final spin. Kamri likes this hairstyle because, how fast is it, Kam? Really fast. Which is what she loves, because she’s always like Mom, I want to go. I want to go swim, I want to go play, I want out the door. Now besides this style, I went ahead and did a couple other styles. I did one on Kamri earlier today, and then I did Brooklyn’s earlier today and took pictures that I’m flashing right now, just to get you guys thinking on how you can utilize this hairstyle in lots and lots of different ways and make it look young or older or anything you are looking for. You can do it on yourself, it is really simple. I have been doing it on my hair. So I think you are going to love this one. Now, extra news! Exciting! Yay, oh, yum!
