Side Bubble Braid Tutorial

By Makenna Ashley

Check out this creative take on a side braid with this Side Bubble Braid Tutorial:Side Bubble Braid

Step 1: Put your hair into a low side pony tail using a clear elastic.

Take out any pieces you want to frame your face. Also make sure the pony tail is as close to your neck as possible, you don’t want it poking out to the side when you’re finished.

Step 2: Using a clear elastic, make a “bubble” about 2-3 inches below the first elastic.

The length of space between elastics is going to depend on your hair length.

Step 3: Make a hole in your bubble.

Make sure it’s a clear opening and even on both sides.

Step 4: Tuck the bottom portion of hair over and through the hole.

If you still have space between the tucked hair, tighten the bottom portion of hair as you would a pony tail, and the space will close.

Tip: If you want more volume in your braid, pull out pieces from each section to give the illusion of a bigger braid
