Hair Trend How-to: Bubble Braids

Hair trend how to: Bubble Braids

Bubble braids are one of the hottest trends we're seeing right now, and for good reason! This simple style is easy enough to do at home and gives instant cool girl vibes. Follow along below for a step by step guide, and product recommendations.

Start by spraying your dry hair with a weightless styling product like Anti Gravity Spray from Kevin Murphy.

  1. Section Hair: Part you hair down the middle, decide which side you'd like to start on and tie back the other side to keep it out of the way.

  2. Make your first ponytail: Grab about a one inch section, starting at your hairline, and tie it in a tight ponytail.

  3. Move on to your second pony: Grab another 1 inch section right behind the first. Grabbing the tail of the first pony, tie the second elastic around your new section and the first pony.

  4. Complete the ponytails: Continue to add elastics down the tail of the pony, leaving a tail of about 2 to 3 inches.

  5. Create the bubbles: Once all the ponytails are secure, start to gently pull on the sections to create the bubble effect. Be careful not to pull too much, especially if you have any shorter layers in your hair. Repeat on the other side of your head.

Once you have all your bubbles done set with some hairspray to tame any loose ends or flyaways. We recommend The Flexible from Schwarzkopf.
