We have heard of so many trendy braids: French, fishtail, mermaid, milkmaid. A lot of people shy away from trying these hairstyles, because unlike celebs, the only person in our glam squad is our mom. These braids are often complicated to do, but now we have a trendy one which is super easy to do, the bubble braid. Priyanka Chopra embraced this hairstyle in her own special way for the BAFTA awards held in London.

She wore the same hair with two different looks. This hairstyle has been around but it’s recent sighting on the red-carpet is making it popular quickly.
All you need for creating this hairstyle at home are some hair bands; accessories and hairspray are optional.
Here’s how to achieve this ultra-glam look in a few easy steps:
Brush out your hair
Brush your hair out, get it smooth and detangled, and gather it into a ponytail. Decide the height of the ponytail now– whether you want it high, medium or low.

If you’re going for a glam and/or sporty look then go for a high ponytail which provides maximum impact. For a sleek look try the low ponytail and for a casual look go for the mid height ponytail.
Get the hair bands

Now take another hairband and tie it a couple of inches below the first hair band which is holding your ponytail.
Tease & pull
Now tease and pull out the hair to make it into a bubble shape.
Now tie another hairband right below the other hairband and repeat the process all the way down.
Space it out
Space out the hair bands as per the look you’re going for. Some people prefer smaller bubbles whereas some might be dramatic and want exaggerated bubbles. The choice is yours and you can have fun with this hairstyle
Hairspray & accessories
When you have the look and want to keep it intact, add some hairspray. This will keep all the loose hairs intact and give a finished look. After the braid is in place, consider accessorizing this look with hair accessories.
You can also experiment with this style and instead of making just one bubble braid you can make two and add your own spin to a cute look. Or another really cool way to do this trend is how it’s been done by Gigi Hadid here:

She has applied the same principle of the bubble braid and made it only with the hair flicks and in the front. This is also a cute twist and can be done very easily.
