2. Flowing Waves and Braids: Keys to Creating a Boho Chic Look
Achieving a boho chic look is all about creating the perfect balance between bohemian comfort and fashionable chic. Two must-haves to keep in mind when recreating this fashionable look are flowing waves and braids.
Flowing Waves: Soft, natural wavy locks are a classic when it comes to effortlessly achieving a boheamian look. Whether you let your hair down or pull it back in a loose bun or half-back, your hairstyle will immediately radiate a relaxed and airy feel.
Braids: For an unexpected twist on an otherwise straightforward look, adding a few braids can quickly elevate your bohemian style. Start with a half-up, half-down style to add dimension to your look, then braid two small strands from each side of your head, intertwining them together at the back.
Grab your brush and start creating your favorite boho chic combo:
- Create three sections
- Loosely plait the top section and secure with an elastic
- Create a messy bun with the middle section using a scrunchie
- Tousle the bottom section with your fingers and leave it down
Achieve maximum bohemian vibes with a few pieces of jewelry or a scarf to define your look. You’ll be ready to rock the boho chic in no time!
3. Embrace Your Inner Hippie: Tips for Styling Bohemian Hair
- Choose Your Hair Accessories Thoughtfully – When it comes to styling bohemian hair, the right accessories are essential. An array of colorful, printed headbands can be incredibly effective in transforming an ordinary hairdo into something extraordinary. Try mixing different sizes and designs to give your tresses a dreamy, ethereal feel.
- Opt for Natural Textures – Bohemian hair typically aims for a casual, effortless look. Therefore, it’s best to embrace your natural texture and style your hair accordingly. If you have wavy hair, let it do its thing! Straight locks are great for accessorizing with a few headbands, while curly hair can look gorgeous in a messy top knot.
- Experiment with Different Styles – Bohemian style features a range of different hairstyles, from long and loose to braids and ponytails. Have fun and combine different looks to create something that’s totally unique. Why not try adding a headband as an unexpected finishing touch?
- Don’t Be Afraid to Let It All Hang Out – The classic bohemian look features long, loose locks. If you were blessed with this type of hair, don’t be afraid to show it off! Achieve perfect beachy waves by using a sea salt spray, and boost natural volume with a texturizing spray.
4. From Braids to Waves: Our Step-by-Step Guide to Boho Chic Hair
For those who are ready to take the plunge into the bohemian-chic hair look, here’s what you need to know! Whether you’re looking to rock the soft boho braided look or go for subtle beach waves, these 4 steps will have you looking stylish and trendy in no time!
Step 1: Start off with the right products. Always use styling products specifically made for your hair type. Organic and natural ingredients work best as they won’t ruin your hair’s natural balance and texture. Choose products that are specifically designed to protect hair against heat styling, humidity and more!
Step 2: Tease your hair. Gently tease your tresses for extra body. Use a fine-toothed comb to create extra volume and that untouched, “bedhead” look that’s essential to achieving the perfect boho look.
Step 3: Braids or Waves.
- Braids: Create three small braids on either side of your head, and secure them with clear rubber bands. From there, release sections of the braid to make them look more relaxed and romantic.
- Waves: When blow drying your hair, work the nozzle of the dryer up and down to create actual waves rather than just smoothing out your hair. To lock in the style, use either a curling rod or flat iron in the opposite direction of your natural wave.
Step 4: Finish with Hairspray. Secure your look with a light mist of a heat-protective hairspray over your finished style. Don’t go crazy with the hairspray or you’ll lose the luscious, natural look of the style!
5. Finishing Touches: Make Your Boho Chic Hair Look Last
To give your boho chic locks lasting glamour – and to prevent flyaways and unruly frizz – it’s essential to make the finishing touches count. To keep your hair looking good for longer, here are our simple and easy tips:
- Hydration is key: Invest in a hydrating shampoo and conditioner and use a mask for extra hydration once a week. Keep a light conditioning spray on hand for when your locks need a refresh.
- Loading up on the hairspray: Cover yourself by finishing with a light spritz of hairspray. This will lock in your Faux Bob or Hendersons’ Pastries and ensure your look is sealed for the day.
Using a wide tooth comb can help you avoid tangles which will also add to your boho chic look lasting longer. And don’t forget to use hair ties in a similar shade to your hair color to help your look blend in and last!
Finally, wrap up your look by using a dry shampoo to keep your hair feeling fresh and clean. This will help keep your boho chic style looking polished and picture perfect from sunrise to sunset.
