This Is How You Can Create A Bubble Braid
1. Prep Your Hair
Prepare your hair with a styling cream to create a frizz-free foundation that is perfect for styling. You can even start out by blow-drying your hair with a round brush and a styling cream.
2. Do A Ponytail
Start by tying your hair into a ponytail. You can make it high, medium or low according to your preference and style look and secure it with a rubber band.
3. Space Out Your Next Bands
Take another hair band and tie it a couple of inches further down your ponytail. Keep repeating this step another couple of inches down your ponytail until you get toward the bottom.
4. Tease & Pull
Once all rubber bands are placed, use your fingers to tease and pull at each section. Using your fingers, tease the space between the first hairband and the second to loosen it into more of a bubble shape.
5. Set It Right
Finish with lightweight hairspray to keep it intact and create extra staying power.
