Beautiful woman with bublle braids against a black background.


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 NYFW 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!
