Bohemian means unconventional with a spiritual or artistic touch and hairstyles in this category will display braids, twist, free-flowing tresses, and so much more. Originally coined for gypsies, it has become more modernized as time flows and is a combination of hippy and Renaissance so expect to see some 70’s styles as well as romantic hairstyles. Boho, the shortened term, has become popular during certain periods and the number of hairstyles has just increased.

These hairstyles are so easy to do, yet look so beautiful and stylish. What I love most about it is that you can play up your natural texture or temporarily change it to another, but still keep it natural-looking and effortless. Whether you’re going to a festival, celebrating the 4th of July or going to a Boho-chic wedding, you’ll find a look for you. Here are some popular bohemian hairstyles that you can mix and match to create your own look!

High Volume Boho Braid Hairstyle

#1: High-Volume Boho Braid

This is bohemian and natural, yet trendy and chic. There’s a balance between the pretty and feminine top half of the style versus the attractive, tangled texture at the bottom. If you want to express your fun, carefree and stylish side, you can wear cute hairstyles on medium-length hair to a wedding, prom, music festival, or a night out on the town. This style can be done on all hair types. It requires texture in the hair so get a texturizing spray or volumizing powder to add grit. This makes hair easier to manipulate, especially if you have thin, straight hair.

#2: Loose Braids Style

This style is trendy boho. It’s not your everyday, hippy-ish, free-spirit style. It’s a little more polished, with just a bit of a laid-back feel. From the front, your hair looks curled and ready to go. Then you get a little surprise when you see the braid in the back!

#3: Bohemian Braided Updo

This Bohemian hairstyle is effortless, romantic, and slightly messy. Bohemian updos with braids are simple but add so much to the overall style. Boho braid hairstyles are best suited for women with medium to long hair and without short layers because they’ll stick out of the braid. Use texture spray to add some dimension to the bun and help hold the braids when slightly pulled apart.

#4: Dimensional Bohemian Updo

Is your big day coming up? If so, this dimensional bohemian updo is a dream and will make you look like a real princess. Ask for some volume and pinned-up fishtail braids. Any master wedding stylist will execute this updo and make you feel amazing on your wedding day.

#8: Long Hair with Flower Accessories

Boho hair is quite popular at the moment, especially when it comes to weddings. To get this look requires a lot of hair. So, you will more than likely need to add some extensions. I would choose clip-ins so that they can be placed exactly where the volume is needed most. Consult with your stylist to see what’s best for you!

#9: Boho Long Blonde Festival Hair

Boho-inspired, long blonde hair is popular this summer for festival concert-goers. Adding jewelry to your hair has replaced the feathers of the prior years. My advice would be to practice your style a few times before the day of the concert. You’ll want to curl your hair, and each section will be in different directions. Take a top section from the top of the ear to straight back and up to leave as much hair down as possible. Pull two small sections from the top knot to leave out to braid. Add in the jewelry as you braid.

#10: Boho for Short Hair

This is a textured chignon, perfect for a “classy hair girl.” It’s simple but still has some intricate detail within the style, giving it interest and beauty. You can dress it up or dress it down. By adding a hairpiece, veil, or bridal gown – you have a beautiful wedding hair updo.

Boho chic hairstyles are a beautiful option for brides. Pair the wavy style with hair accessories to elevate the look even further.
