HOW TO: Bubble Braid Pony
I don’t know about you guys but lately I’ve been obsessed with following hair inspo accounts on Instagram like Habit Salon, Lindsey Rae Rogers, Kirsten Zellers, etc. They always post the best hair inspo and I only hope to one day reach this level of hair perfection. Unfortunately, if ya know me irl, you know I’m not the best at styling my own hair. I may have even asked you to do my hair for me on a few occasions because sometimes I just CANNOT.
But I’m working on it and I’ve mastered a few things, such as this bubble braid pony! This is honestly the EASIEST braid to learn because it’s not even a real braid, it’s kind of like cheating at braids but it’s still really cute. And if I can do it, you can definitely do it.
I love this specific bubble braid pony with the scrunchies because it’s inspired by my HAIR KWEEN Lindsey, but this is my amateur easy version. So if you wanna know how to do this easy braid then keep reading!
You will need:
three scrunchies (I use these from Free People)
a hairbrush (Wetbrush is my fav, especially for fine hair)
texturizing spray (This is THE best texturizing spray I’ve ever used)
Step 1: Brush your hair out and part your hair to the side.
Step 2: Gather all your hair on one side (the side opposite of your part).
Step 3: Secure a basic low side ponytail with your first scrunchie.
Step 4: Tie another scrunchie around your ponytail about 2 inches below the first one.
Step 5: Take the hair between the two scrunchies and separate the hair into two parts so that there’s a hole between your hair.
Step 6: Through the underside of the pony, stick your index finger and thumb through the hole, grab the bottom of your pony and pull it through the hole until all of the hair and scrunchie has gone through.
Step 7: Tie another scrunchie around your pony about two inches below the second one.
Step 8: Repeat step #6 with this new segment of hair between the second and third scrunchie.
Step 9: Start pulling apart the bubbles with your fingers, be gentle so you don’t pull the hair out too much but don’t be afraid to keep pulling the braids apart until they get as big and messy as you want them to be.
Step 10: Spray your braid with texturizing spray.
Step 11: Pull your braid a little bit more if you want it even bigger, texturizing spray not only keeps the braid in place but it also gives it more grit and texture so it can be big and messy.
