Recently, TikTok has become a source of many techniques to help you effortlessly get voluminous hair without damage. One of the trends that is rapidly gaining momentum on the network is the Bubble Braids hairstyle.

Similar to standard braiding, the hairstyle involves securing slightly damp sections of hair with elastic bands. However, the main difference is that instead of twisting the hair into a braid, it is pulled into flat, rounded "bubbles" and left to dry. After removing the elastic bands, you will get great styling and noticeable volume, writes Women.

Prepare your hair by combing two parts

Even though the hairstyle can be done on dry hair, it is recommended to wash your hair before you start. The strands should be clean and moist, which will help the hairstyle hold.

Divide the hair into two parts. A comb with a thin metal end will help you achieve an even parting. Then use a brush to comb through the strands until they are completely smooth. If your hair is prone to frizz, use a curl cream or serum.

Make several ponytails

Now that you have two sections, divide these sections of hair into even smaller sections. Start at the parting of the head, moving down to the neck. The ponytails should be on "different tiers". Next, place elastic bands along each ponytail. The distance between them should be about 4-6 cm.

Once your ponytail is covered with hair bands, it's time to create the bubble effect. Using both hands, gently loosen each section of hair between the elastic bands without pulling it completely out of the ponytail. Repeat this process until you have turned each ponytail into a bubble braid. Leave your Bubble Braids to dry completely. If you did the hairstyle on dry hair, it is better to leave the braids overnight.

Carefully remove the hair bands

Starting from the bottom of the strands, gently pull the hair and remove the elastic bands. Be careful not to pull too hard as this can ruin the curl. The result will look like lush beach waves. The final touch will be hairspray, which will fix the styling.
