The first way is by using your fingers, fishing line or clear lace to create the braid “pop” (a.k.a. the chunky part of the braid). The second way is by using a traditional three-strand braid. We’ll cover both of them here, complete with detailed pictures.

For Pop Smoke Braids Men Using Your Fingers:

1) Make a three-strand braid using your fingers, using the index finger to pull up combed sections from each side to be braided with it’s corresponding middle finger.

2) Let the first finger to become the “up” finger, and let the other two finger become the “down” fingers.
