Hair can be so much effort!

You want to feel good about yourself but sometimes you just can’t be bothered to put much effort in. Sound familiar?

Well, let us introduce you to that latest hair trend that looks amazing and takes little to no effort; bubble braids.

Braids, but not braids

Now, the mention of braids might have some of you running for the hills. Being able to plait and braid our hair is not a gift we have been blessed with (so much stress trying to get them right!!) but bubble braids are super simple to do because despite the name there’s no actual braiding involved.

Bubble braids offer up a cool twist on simple ponytails or classic plaits and they only take a few seconds more to create. Basically, if you can do a ponytail, you can do a bubble braid.

How To Do A Bubble Braid

  1. Start by tying your hair into a ponytail. Do a high ponytail if you want more of a sporty look, or a mid ponytail if you want a casual look and a low ponytail if you want a sleeker look.
  2. Pull out any baby hairs and your fringe to make it feel more relaxed, or keep it tight if you want it to look neat and slick
  3. Take another hairband and tie it a couple of inches further down your ponytail.
  4. Using your fingers, tease the space between the first hair band and the second to loosen it into more of a bubble shape.
  5. Keep repeating this step another couple of inches down your ponytail until you get toward the bottom.
  6. Leave the chunk at the end loose to keep the braid looking modern
  7. Tease each “bubble” once more to make sure you have the shape you want

And there you have it, one very simple bubble braid. You can mix things up by creating two braids like pigtails or experiment by putting your own spin on things with some extra twists and flips within the bubbles.
