GET THE LOOK: Bubble Braids From Chromat at New York Fashion Week 2019   


Let’s talk bubble braids: the 2019 New York Fashion Week hair trend we are currently loving on the runway. It’s no surprise that Chromat—an innovative New York-based swimwear brand—had their models rocking such a bold and playful style, since the brand itself is known for their gender-inclusive looks and colorful designs.

Luckily, it’s easier than it seems to get this adorable style and we have the step-by-step list of how to do it yourself, straight from the hairstylist backstage at Chromat’s New York Fashion Week 2019 show. We promise, you can do it. All you need is a little TRESemmé Micro Mist, TRESemmé Between Washes Dry Shampoo, and TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray Hold Level 4: Extend. Oh yeah, and some elastics, a hairbrush, bobby pins and......a tooth brush. Now go get your bubble braid on!
