MILWAUKEE -- It's the prettiest, most scientific way to do your hair. Scott Yance with Scottfree Salon joins Real Milwaukee with the science project of your dreams -- the DNA braid.

The DNA braid was designed by Alexandra Wilson of Warwick, Rhode Island.  It resembles a twisting DNA molecule. The process of braiding it is similar to a fishtail braid, but it has three sections instead of two.  Pack your patience when you're ready to try it though! It will take you a little bit to get into a rhythm. To help give the braid some grip, use texture spray, dry shampoo or sea salt spray.
