Another braid that requires no braiding! A bubble braid is an amazing alternative to a dutch braid if you don’t know how to braid!
This braid will give you amazing volume on top of the hair and the more you pull, the bigger the bubbles become! So you decided the level of puffiness!
This post is all about how to do a bubble braid for beginners!
You dont have to do as big of bubbles as I have done in the video, you can do many more, but they will be smaller and not as “puffy” as the one I did. You can also do this as a double braid, all you have to do is to split the hair into 2 equal sections before starting the braid!
If you are feeling up to a half up half down haristyle, then stop the bubbles when you reach to just above the ear (about 2 or 3 bubbles down) and leave the rest of the hair down

Bubble braid step by step for beginners
- Take a section at the front of your head and tie the hair into a small ponytail
- Clip the ponytail out of the way
- Take a new section of hair below the first one and tie the hair into a ponytail
- Take down the first ponytail and tie it together with the second ponytail
- Pull in the hair between the ponytails to create the bubble effect
- Repeat steps 3-5 until there is no more hair to add to the ponytails
- When there is no more hair to add to the braid, go a few centimeters down the hair and add a hair elastic
- Pull in the hair between the elastics to create a bubble
- Repeat steps 7-9 until you reach the end of the hair
How to take out the elastics easily
Taking out the elastics can be a pain and hurt pretty bad if you do it wrong! I did that for years, I was struggling to pull them out, using scissors and other things to get them out until I found this amazing tool! It’s an elastic cutter, that wont cut your fingers or your hair!
Just simply slide the pointy side under the elastic to catch it and pull down to cut it. Easy, simple and no pain – highly reccomed!
