These bubble braid pigtails have become a go-to hairstyle for me.  They are quick and so easy, but look so cool.  Even though I feel past traditional “pigtail” age, there is something about this style that feels really wearable for a range of ages.

I add extensions to make my pigtails longer and add a bit of thickness, but this hair style can be done on almost every hair length.  And as if this style couldn’t get any better, it is a no-heat hairstyle.  No heat means you won’t be using any hot tools, keeping your hair at it’s healthiest!

You Will Need

1 | small invisible or hair colored rubber bands

2 | tail comb

3 | texture spray or cream {favorite cream} {high end spray} {drugstore win}

4 | extensions {www.girlgetglamorousHAIR.com}

5 | hair oil

6 | hair spray

Tips

The smoothness of your bubbles depends on if your hair is one length or layered.  My hair is layered, so my bubbles have a few more stray pieces.  If you hair is one length, you will get super smooth looking bubbles.

If you have layered hair and want smooth bubbles, space your bubbles closer together, 1-2″ down, instead of 2-3″.  The shorter spacing lets less hair escape and keeps the look sleeker.

I prefer a more loose and bohemian look, so I like the stray pieces.  I also think pulling out some hair around the face adds to the “undone” look of the hairstyle.
