21 Bubble Braid Hairstyles


Have you tried all the usual braid styles and desperately need something new? Or do you want a braid style but don’t know how to braid the normal way? Look no further! 

Bubble braids are actually not real braids as no hair strands are crossed over one another. Instead, bubble braids are made by securing the loose ends of the hair with hair bands from top to bottom leaving a significant and regular amount of space. The space between each hair band is then fluffed and loosened up from top to bottom to give a bubble shape. 

These puffy styles are snazzy and exotic, and, best of all, they’re actually relatively easier to make than regular braids. These hairstyles don’t cause a lot of tension on the scalp because of their loosely braided nature. 

Bubble braids will surely become one of your go-to styles once you glance through this catalog of wonderful bubble braid hairdos.
