Hairstylist @ L’attitudes Salon & Spa in Catharines, ON

How would you describe this?

This boho style could be worn for an everyday look, as well as special events. If you consider quinceanera hairstyles, a boho style might not be the first thing that comes to mind, but this one is definitely chic and chill.

What’s your best advice?

This quinceanera style is meant to look effortless and tousled. This is a style that you can do on yourself using texturizing powder, one bobby pin, 3 elastics, and a hot tool whether you prefer a curling iron or flat iron to curl. Section your hair in 4 sections separating the top and creating two large braids.

Place texturizing powder on the braid and pull as loose and you would like. The more you pull the more boho effect you will create. Secure the braids with an elastic on the end of both braids and intertwine the braids and secure with a bobby pin. Comb out the remaining curls with a wide tooth comb.

How would you describe this?

This can be described as a soft, modern romance that seems effortless in nature with an overall bohemian feel. With this quinceanera hairstyle is that the twists offer detail while the overall vibe remains whimsical and unstructured.

What’s your best advice?

Luckily, this is one of those quinceanera styles that suit most hair types and lengths. Ask for layers cut into your hair to ensure volume and texture throughout the style and framed around the face for softness.

If your hair is particularly fine,  install a set of clip in hair extensions for extra volume for your quinceanera hairstyles down, and to hold the waves throughout the day. A sea salt spray and texture spray must be used in conjunction to ensure the finish is separated and undone in nature.
