Bohemian Hair Styles, DIY Insider How To Secrets
How to do Boho Hair Styles Like a Pro
When I think of Bohemian hair styles, (aka Boho hair) I think of earthy and natural looking hair. Long hair parted in the middle and hanging in loose subtle curls is a throwback to the 1970’s hippie scene. Back then, young women wore long flowing hair with leather headbands, faded jeans and chunky jewelry, very much like some of our Bohemian hair styles today. With or without bangs, the Bohemian look enhances your natural beauty and brings out a feminine glow. Loose face-framing curls can give you a soft, romantic look.
Thick, straight bangs are one option, while some prefer long, side-swept, almost wispy bangs. No matter what texture your hair is, wearing it in its natural state is perfectly Boho.
Brooke White and Carly Simon wore Bohemian hair styles, you can create this wild child Boho hair, by scrunching even or layered hair sprayed with a curl activator such as TIGI’s, Curls Rock or a mousse like Paul Mitchell’s Sculpting Foam with conditioner. Scrunching will give your hair more texture and volume, let your hair air dry and finger comb through. Your bohemian hair is uniquely yours to wear and as a hairdresser, I think our individual differences are what make each of us beautiful.
The Bohemian or Boho look is a versatile classic goto style that really can be appropriate for any occasion (especially those where you want to steal the show). You’ll feel appropriately styled if you’re attending a weekend festival or a formal dressy event. Boho hair styles are low maintenance and look ultra-feminine, so keep make-up fresh and light to go with your hairstyle.

Another Bohemian updo starts with two French braids on the sides, which are braided to the neckline where the ends are secured with elastic. Separating the ends into smaller sections, twist each section into a coil then pin it down, leaving the ends free. It’s an artsy, Boho updo that turns out differently every time you create it.
Your Bohemian hair style may be as simple as pulling your hair off your face and letting long waves spill over your shoulders. Whichever, you choose, remember that a Bohemian hairstyle is clean, shiny and natural!
