How to Create the Bubble Braid

Within the past year, I have challenged myself to step outside of my stylistic comfort zone. Now, I’d describe my overall style as either minimalistic and simple or eclectic. That being said, my hair styles are evolving as well.

I saw a single bubble braid style while scrolling on my Explorer page on Instagram and thought it would be cool to style them as two bubble pigtail braids.

This entire look took me less than 10 mins to complete and all you’ll need is a comb, 8 small rubber bands, and a few pumps of hairspray.

I first divide my hair down the middle.

Next, I gather each half to form pigtails.

Then, I tease about 3-4 inches of hair (depending on your length).

Once you see volume added, comb it neat, and tie section.

Mirror the other side…

Keep alternating halves so that you can make sure each section is even.
