The Bubble Braid

Today I decided to try making my own version of the bubble braid. This is a front view of the braid.

This braid is not an actual braid, but elastic hair bands are used to create “bubbles” in the hair where the individual pumps of the plaits usually would be. The bubbles can be more accentuated, but I just decided to make this style quickly and for fun. I used multicolored hair ties to make the braid pop in my dark hair.

The bubble braid is almost as long as my arm.

The video illustrates how I create my own version of the bubble braid with a simple low ponytail. I like creating long hair videos illustrating how I do it, and I simply use coconut oil for smoothing and styling my hair.
