Depending on your desired size, Pop smoke braids can be done using the feed in method where more hair is fed in while braiding the hair to give it a thick appearance.
They can also be done using another method where the same amount of hair is used throughout the length of the braid.
While the pop smoke braids aren’t a new braided hairstyle, they’re often confused for the Fulani/tribal braids where a similar style of braiding and parting is used.

Pop smoke braids tutorial
Pop smoke braids are easy to do if you’re already familiar with the techniques used.
For this hairstyle, Xpression braiding hair is preferred and the price can go as high as $150 depending on your desired length and size.
Start by washing the hair, deep conditioning and blow drying it.
While it’s possible to get your hair braided without applying heat, the pop smoke braids done using the stitch in method tend to look more neat if the hair is blow dried pre braiding.
After blow drying/straightening it, the hair is sectioned into two parts by parting it at the middle.
The sectioned parts are then further divided into 4 parts on each side.
Edge control is then used to sleek down the baby hairs and gel to ensure that the parts look extra neat.
The braiding hair is then gradually fed into the hair making the braid thicker as you move along.
This part is optional.
If you’d like to have the same size of braids from start to finish, use the same amount of hair and skip the feed in method.
