5 Minutes

If you’re looking for a way to get your hair out of your face without resorting to a standard ponytail or messy bun, I’ve got you covered.

Here, I’m going to show you a cute bubble-braid look using hair elastics that will get your hair away from your eyes. Let’s get started!

Tools and materials:

  • Hair elastics
Sectioning hair

1. Separate off front section of hair

First, divide your hair down the center. Then separate off the front section of hair on either side.

Tying hair

2. Tie hair with elastic

Tie the top of your hair with an elastic.

Adding second elastic

3. Add second elastic

Leave a small space and then add a second elastic.

Continue doing this all the way along your hair.

Progress shot

In total, I used seven hair elastics.

4. Repeat

Repeat this process on the other side of your hair, making sure to leave the same distance between each elastic so that the two sides are symmetrical.

Easy elastic hairstyle

 Keep your hair out your face without the basic ponytail or messy bun

Your hair is already out of your way, tied up on either side, but if you want it even further away from your face, tie the two sides together at the back of your head.

I love this look - it’s both practical and looks great. I hope you love it too!
