How to Create the Perfect Bubble Braids

Bubble braids are a simple and effective way to up your hair game. They are one of the easiest, breeziest post-lockdown trends and we can’t get enough of them on Instagram.

Here is a step-by-step guide to achieving the look at home.

Step 1: Tie Up Your Hair

Tie your hair into a ponytail. If you want a sleek bubble braid, opt for a low ponytail. If you are into the casual/sporty look, choose a higher ponytail.

Grab a Bunch of Hair Ties

Take another hairband and measure a couple of inches down from your ponytail. Use your hairband to tie your hair here.

Get Teasing

Using your fingers, tease the space between the first and second hair tie. This is what creates the bubble shape.


Repeat this process all the way down your hair. Leave a chunk at the end of the braid to keep it chic. If your bubbles aren’t bubbly enough, go back and tease each until you get the look you want.

If you love the look, you can also have a go at making two bubble braids.
