Step by Step Bubble Braid

Wow! This is way overdue, sorry. I’m in charge of a big camping trip for the teen girls at church and it’s taking a lot of my free time. We are going week after next, though, so I hope it all magically comes together by then and ends up being a wonderful experience for everyone. After that, I’m planning to be a lot more regular in my posts, including sharing a lot of my favorite beauty products. I’m a total product junkie, and I can’t wait to share!

Well, back to the topic of the day…the bubble braid! This is one of my go-to styles because it is so quick and easy, yet looks really neat. I’m posting this as a step by step, so if you find it hard to follow and have questions, let me know!

First, gather all your hair to one side and secure with elastic.  I like to pull all my hair tight and smooth, then pull out pieces around my face and adjust the volume on the top after I put in the elastic.

Next, move an inch or two down from the first elastic and add another one.  Depending on how thick your hair is, or the length of it, you may need to adjust to make the gap between a little smaller than this.

Then split the gap between the two elastics in half.  Flip the bottom of your ponytail through the gap, keeping it tight and smooth.

Move down another couple inches (the same distance you did on the first gap) and add an elastic.  Repeat the previous step, splitting the gap and flipping the lower part of your pony through.

Based on preference, and if length permits, repeat again.

Now begin to gently loosen the sections, one at a time. I find that when I start to loosen the hair, I can pull quite a bit, but once it has started to loosen, I switch and just use my pointer finger and thumb to pull small sections.

There you have it! Let me know if you give it a try!
