Top 44 Bohemian Hairstyle Ideas for 2018

Boho 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 boho hair ideas that you can mix and match to create your own look!

Q&A with style creator, Nina Herrera
Wedding / Event Hairstylist @ Braids by Nina in Broward Country, FL

How would you describe this look?

I would describe this look as an elegant style that is great for weddings or events.

My favorite part of the look is the double braid. I think it makes the style look more complex and elegant.

Any advice for someone considering it?

I would say to definitely get a great hairspray to hold the look! I used all Not Your Mother’s haircare products to hold the style. If the client has hair extensions, it will give the style a much fuller look.

Dimensional Chain Braid

Q&A with style creator, Crystal Cannon-Karakas
Hairstylist @ Halo Salon and Day Spa in Roseville, CA


How would you describe this look?

This look gives off a fun yet edgy boho vibe. It has the timeless look of a traditional braid, but by switching it up and making it a chain braid, it becomes edgy and different.

I love the way it brings out the dimension in her color. I also love that it is polished while still giving the feeling of a lived-in boho style. One of my favorite things to do with styling is to work with contrasting textures. This look allowed me to be creative in that way.

Any advice for someone considering it?

If someone wanted me to recreate this look, I would make sure they were ok with some texture and a more lived-in finish. Although there is volume in this look, I would ensure they were comfortable with the fact the front is closer to the scalp.If they weren’t, we could always adjust where the braid began.

I could recreate this look on any hair type, I would just simply adjust the products I use. For fine hair, I would want to add texture and volume with a lot of shine. My favorite combo to achieve that right now is Redken’s Full Frame Mousse with a drop of Redken’s Glow Dry. It’s the perfect combo for volume and shine without weighing the hair down. For thicker hair, I would use Redken Velvet Gelatine and some Redken Guts to create a smooth and controlled, but voluptuous canvas. With any hair texture, I love to use Redken’s Windblown to finish and create a disheveled look with shine and texture.

Beachy Side Braid

Q&A with style creator, Lauren Frost
Hairstylist @ The Beauty Bungalow in Poway, CA


How would you describe this look?

I would describe this look as a “beachy”. It looks very natural as if the sun kissed her hair itself.

I love how there is her own natural depth at the root and it melts into the beautiful pops of blonde around her face and on her ends.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This look is super low maintenance. When done properly, (it’s very important to find someone who knows how to properly do this!) this style can last for six months. This style is for anyone who loves a natural, sunkissed look. I love how it looks undone and messy.

We blow dried Kevin Murphy Body.Builder and Body.Mass and into the hair. After the hair was dry, I added Young.Again serum and Bedroom.Hair hairspray. Using a 1 1/4-inch Halocouture curling iron, I wrapped small sections around it, using the curling iron like a wand. We finished by brushing the hair out with a paddle brush and fingering back through it. This style lasts for days!

A Summer By The Ocean

Q&A with style creator, Leana Vacopolos
Owner / Founder @ Lox by Lea in Central Coast, NSW


How would you describe this look?

I would describe this looks as “a summer by the ocean”. The reason for that and my favorite thing about this color is that it mimics how the sun would lighten the hair over a whole summer at the beach.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Although this look is super low maintenance, I recommend coming in between full color appointments for a toner and a blow dry to keep the shine, freshness, and tone that was achieved at the start. This means you get to love your hair the whole way through! Come in every 12 weeks for a full color and every six weeks for a toner and blow dry.

Low Twisted Ponytail

Q&A with style creator, Em Sleeman
Hair Up Specialist in Melbourne, VIC


How would you describe this look?

My boho pony is a ponytail with a twist. This is a modern take on the classic low ponytail.

When I think of bohemian hair, I think of loose waves, texture, and big, messy fishtail braids. This look encompasses all of the above, but is effortless, easy to achieve, and the perfect style for any girl that has to attend a formal event, but is not so formal herself!

Any advice for someone considering it?

Sea salt, sea salt, sea salt! This kind of hair is all about texture, so applying a good sea salt spray to damp hair before drying (and also before styling dry hair) is a great way to add body and movement to finer, silkier hair types. I can also never get enough of texture spray. Use that on the roots to give added volume and directly on the pony to give more shape and feel after styling. Redken Wax Blast is amazing for creating texture in hair!

What I love most about this look is that you can go as messy or neat as you like by simply pulling apart the fishtail or beginning with looser waves. It’s up to you!

Softly Braided Updo

Q&A with style creator, Julie Krothe
Licensed Organic Hairstylist @ Shear Miracle Organics in Columbia, PA


How would you describe this look?

I would describe this as a softly braided boho updo. I love the simplicity of the earthy yet elegant vibe of the pulled apart braids and carefree soft curls.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This is a great style for anyone with shoulder-length hair or longer who is looking for a quick and easy style that is soft yet playful, and won’t get in their way. It is perfect for moms with young kids or ladies who like to get down on the dance floor.

This look can work with almost any hair type. For straight hair, I recommend starting with clean, dry hair and utilizing either some dry shampoo or powder root booster and a light hairspray to add a little bit of texture and hold. Use these products prior to wrapping one-inch sections around a 1 1/4-inch barrel curling iron or wand.

For hair that has natural texture, you can jump right into braiding! Softly pull the braids apart and pin up the back. To finish, pull out a few soft pieces of hair to frame the face and neck.

Messy Bohemian Half-Braids

Q&A with style creator, Jenny Kay Collins
Owner @ JK & Co. Hair Salon in Wrens, GA


How would you describe this look?

These are messy bohemian half-braids. I absolutely love this look because it is an eye-catcher, but at the same time doesn’t look like you tried too hard. The best part is that you don’t have to try hard!

It is basically two inverted French braids with added volume that are finished off with a nice twist of hair to hide the elastic. The hair is styled first with just a bit of wave and some sea salt spray. This look is totally easy, but so chic!

Any advice for someone considering it?

This style is great for so many looks. This could totally be worn with a somewhat formal black dress to dress it down a bit while still being fashionable. It is also a client favorite with the most casual attire, including flannel shirts, tops, or even a t-shirt! You can go from a dressed look right to the gym by simply pulling it all up in a ponytail, which also looks fabulous.

The boho braids are definitely the best when prepped with a sea salt spray, as well as a dry shampoo and/or a volume texture spray. These products provide the good amount of volume, texture, and “piece-y-ness” that makes this look adorable. The key to all good hair: DON’T OVERTHINK IT!

Half Up Do Braid

Q&A with style creator, Yadge
Freelance Hairstylist in Bondi Beach, Sydney


How would you describe this look?

I would this describe this as a half up half down hairstyle. My favorite thing about it is how the braid is worked into the style. It adds a nice detail to the style and creates that boho feel.

Any advice for someone considering it?

My advice to a client considering this look is that the hair has to be able to hold a curl or wave well. The whole idea of the “bohemian” look is for it to have natural, loose-looking waves. The style will not be achieved if the hair falls straight. Some great styling products that add wave and texture to hair are sea salt sprays and texture sprays. My favorite to use on these styles is the Doo.Over texture spray by Kevin Murphy.

This style is great to wear to a party, a festival, or even a boho themed wedding. Most of my clients that request this style are looking for a natural and effortless look.

High Volume Braid

Q&A with style creator, Donna Kang
Senior Stylist @ Mane Society Salon in Maple, ON / Master Artist and Educator @ BaByliss Pro and Dannyco Professional


How would you describe this look?

This look is bohemian and natural, yet trendy and chic. I love the balance between the pretty and feminine top half of the style versus the sexy, tangled texture at the bottom.

Any advice for someone considering it?

If you want to express your fun, carefree and stylish side, you can wear this look to a wedding, 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 I would recommend using a texturizing spray or volumizing powder to add grit. This makes hair easier to manipulate, especially if you have thin, straight hair.

Volume is an important element of this look. Teasing the crown and the remaining hair left down, as well as plumping out the braids by gently pulling out the sides, will elevate the look. If you want a more subtle style, keep the teasing to a minimum. End with finishing spray to ensure long-lasting hold.

Most importantly, have fun with it. This style is meant to be seen, so wear it with confidence!

3 Strand Ponytail Braid

Q&A with style creator, Lauren Edwards
Hair and Make-up Artist / Owner @ Style Hair and Makeup in Tampa / St Petersburg, FL


How would you describe this look?

I would describe this look simple yet edgy. The fact that you can wear it anywhere is my favorite thing about it!

Any advice for someone considering it?

To style, I recommend any texture spray or dry shampoo, a 1-inch curling iron, a ponytail holder, a few bobby pins, and Kenra 13 hairspray.

The girl in the photo is a real estate agent and the style is really for any personality type. It takes a basic ponytail to the next level and is sure to make you stand out in a crowd!

Soft Fishtail Braid

Q&A with style creator, Lacey Perren
Mobile Hairstylist @ Hair By Lacey in Gold Coast, QLD


How would you describe this look?

I created this for a bride. She was getting married on the beach and wanted something simple, but still elegant. I love the softness of a fishtail braid. Incorporating a French braid at the top helped create a little more texture and volume.

Any advice for someone considering it?

To help create this style, I first went through and sprayed Delorenzo Elements Sandstorm spray to give volume and texture to the root area. I then used my Cloud 9 to curl the hair, then pinned the top section. While the top section cooled down, I used ShowPony clip-in extensions around the side to help create extra length and fullness. I worked back through the top and used Delorenzo Quicksand to help give the mid-lengths a little more hold.

I braided the top and used a clear hair tie to secure the braid. I used a sea salt spray to help the styling of the fishtail. To help hold everything in place, I finished with Affinage Black Ice hairspray.

Loose Braids

Q&A with style creator, Kayla Faulkner
Hairstylist @ Salon Ray in Kennesaw, GA


How would you describe this look?

I’d describe this style as trendy boho. It’s not your everyday, hippy-ish, free spirit boho style. It’s a little more polished, with just a bit of a laid-back feel.

My favorite thing about the style is that from the front, her hair looks simply curled and ready to go. Then you get a little surprise when you see the braid in the back!

Any advice for someone considering it?

To me, this style is versatile enough for any girl. It can be worn by the girl rocking Adidas and joggers, the girl going out for a night on the town, the girl laying on the beach, or even the cool mom trying to rock her four-day-old hair!

All anyone needs to achieve this style is a good curling iron (I used a 1 1/2-inch iron), some basic braiding skills, and texture powder (I used Expandadust by Unite). Once you create the braid, puff some Expandadust onto the braid. It gives the hair the grit you need to expand out the braid and make it more full. It also gives it an extreme hold so it isn’t going ANYWHERE until you wash it out!

Effortlessly Romantic

Q&A with style creator and Freelance Hairstylist, Sarah Spiller


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as effortless with a touch of casual and romance. I love that the braids are the main feature and blend into the ponytail.

What tips or products do you recommend to recreate this look?

The best product to recreate this style would be the Design Me Puff Me powder. It is my all time favorite and gives great texture.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This style would suit most hair types, but works best on long thick hair. It’s a very casual look, so it may not work for those of you with a hectic or corporate lifestyle. It looks best on ladies with a round or oval face shape.

Edgy With a Touch of Romance

Q&A with style creator, Nicole Ray
Hairdresser / Stylist @ Bombshell Hair and Makeup Lounge in Placerville, CA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe the look as an edgy updo with a romantic touch.

What tips or products do you recommend to recreate this look?

To recreate this look, I recommend a dry shampoo to give the hair a good amount of texture, as well as a strong hold hairspray.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look is suitable for anyone who is looking for something fun and different. The updo would be good for an everyday look or even someone going to a party or dance.

Whimsical Half Updo

Q&A with style creator, Julie Flury
Owner / Master Hair Designer @ Jewel Hair Design in Southwest and East Coast


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This is a whimsical, whispy, boho-inspired half updo! I love the soft and effortless look. It is feminine with a little wild side.

What tips or products do you recommend to recreate this look?

Curl hair all over with a 1 1/4-inch curling iron. I personally use a Hot Tools clamp iron for this look. Create two fishtail braids on either side of the head, starting near the temples on base. Start to braid off base once you reach the side curve of the head. Connect the two braids in the back for a seamless look, and spend some time gently pulling out the braids for a fuller look.

The products I used when creating this look were Kenra Professional Hot Spray 20 prior to curling for hold and protection against heat, Kenra Professional Dry Texture Spray 6 for increase of texture and fullness, and Kenra Professional Matte High Def Hairspray 16 for natural texture and hold without looking shiny, wet or stiff. I also used Fromm Beauty bob pins and teasing comb.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look is perfect for minimalist, bohemian and natural-loving gals! This hairstyle can be replicated on anyone with a medium to thick hair texture, as long as they do not have too many short top layers. This style looks fuller on gals who have lighter, color processed hair.

TIP: Remember to leave out a few strands of wispy hairs around the face to add more softness to the jaw and hairline.

Updo with Fresh Flowers

Q&A with style creator, Theo Diliberto
Hairstylist / Colorist @ VOG in Pas De Calais, France


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This is a boho updo with fresh flowers. I love this look because it goes with all styles, for all days. I love bringing in some fresh flowers to make the style chic for special occasions

What tips or products do you recommend to recreate this look?

I first waved everything, then I worked hand without comb. The trick is not to do too much! The top and sides are maintained and structured to give a tidy effect. I used L’oreal Depolish to smoothly back up all the locks to the base of the shot. I finished with L’oreal’s Savage Panache.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this look to all women who like things not too worked and shot! With a floral jumpsuit as a garment, you have the perfect look.

Loosely Braided

Q&A with style creator, Paige Virginia
Owner / Stylist @ Majestic Hair Salon and Bridal in Delray Beach, FL


How would you describe this look?

This is a secure but loosely braided look. When you add baby’s breath or and jewels, this style becomes elegant in so many ways. I posted her without the accessories to give everyone a little imagination boost. I loved the seemingly effortless intricacy of a pin-less style for her wedding.

Any advice for someone considering it?

I have found that Pinterest never accounts for YOUR head. That sounds silly out loud, but seriously. When choosing boho styles of any kind, remember many of the models have extensions, as did this bride-to-be. Also, the entire look changes when you add your hair bling. My best advice is to come well prepared with your hair additions to give your stylist a fighting chance in recreating something you have in mind.

I have also found that the messier, the better! Not the fuzzier though, because no one likes frizz. I use Redken Spray Wax and/or Kenra alcohol-free hairspray to keep my boho beauties effortlessly secured.

Modernized French Braid

Q&A with style creator, Ellie Ferrari
Wedding & Occasion Hair Specialist @ The Updo Girl in Exeter, Devon


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This look is a modern twist on your classic French braid. Infinity braids are everywhere at the moment and are relatively simple to accomplish.

My favorite thing about the style is the different textures you get from the combination of braids.

What tips or products do you recommend to recreate this look?

My model for this look had lovely thick hair. If you aren’t blessed with tresses like hers, I would use a texturizing iron at the roots for added volume for the Dutch fishtail. Ensure you keep the Dutch fishtail nice and tight, pulling on it as you go for that “pancaked” look.

My favorite product at the moment is Design.Me Puff.Me hair volumizing powder. I use this a lot for braids, and it’s great for baby hairs too! When creating the infinity, the smaller the pieces of hair you take the more effective the outcome.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This style is really suitable for everyone. It can be adapted for people with bangs and taken over to the side for a softer look, which is great for those of us with slightly rounder face shapes. This style really would stay in for days if you needed it to.

Crown Braid Updo

Q&A with style creator, Leah Milley
Senior Stylist @ Imagica Hair Studio in Victoria, AU


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This updo is relaxed, textured, soft and elegant.

My favorite thing about this boho style updo is that it can be dressed up or dressed down for any occasion. This particular look was designed for a lady going to her friend’s engagement party.

What tips or products do you recommend to recreate this look?

The preparation for this style is key. You need a GOOD setting spray. Once the braid was done and set, the rest of the hair was curled and set with pin curl clips. It’s important to let the hair fully cool down before attempting to create its structure. I also used a sea salt spray and a volumizing powder to create the messy, matte texture.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This style is great for people with a lot of hair. It’s essential to have enough length for it to be able to be loose, creating the “boho” look. It is also a good hairstyle for many different occasions. It can be worn formal or casual. It is practical enough to be worn on an everyday occasion. Whilst it may appear simple, it is still a head turner.

Festival Vibe

Q&A with style creator, Jennifer Hofmann
Freelance Hairstylist @ Hair by Jenn H in San Diego, CA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This is a half up half down look with soft waves. It gives a festival vibe to a classic style.

I love the way that the braid added bulk to her fine hair and played up all the highs and lows of her blonde.

What tips or products do you recommend to recreate this look?

I used a 1-inch Babyliss Wand to achieve this uneven and soft curl pattern. Sexy Hair Powder Play Light was added to the crown to help create texture and volume at the scalp. Redken Diamond Oil was lightly sprayed through the mid shaft and ends to create shine. I finished with a light working hairspray to keep the hair soft to the touch and moveable.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this hairstyle to anyone! It works on fine to coarse hair. The braid being pulled apart makes it appear larger and is an easy way to help finer hair appear thick and full.

This style would be perfect for a night out or a special event, or even anything in between!
