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

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.

A Bohemian French Braid Updo Hair Style

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!

Picture Yourself With Fergie’s Braids

Fergie Pictures

Fergie Pictures with her Bohemian Braids are everywhere

Take a look at the picture of Fergie’s awesome side hanging braid, that she wore to the Teen Choice Awards.  Isn’t she stunning!  She possessed a classic Bohemian hairstyle with her gown and her thick, fishtail braid.
“Fergie’s awesome side hanging braid”
Starting with a center part and a low pony tail at the nape of her neck, Fergie’s own hair is wrapped around extensions and braided in the fishtail style. There are two pieces of hair in the front hanging in face-framing curls.  The braid hanging over her shoulder looks great with her gown’s halter neckline. I love seeing her in that braid, it’s such a beautiful way to retrain hair and add dimension at the same time.  The long side braid has accompanied many evening gowns down the red carpet this year!

The act of braiding is an art form that has been passed down through many generations.  The more you braid, the better you will get at it, remember practice makes perfect!  It’s always best to braid hair when it’s dry.  When you braid wet hair it shrinks and dries tightly to the head, causing tension.  This tension can cause breakage and hair loss.  So remember to blow dry your hair before braiding!

You can create a fishtail braid like Fergie’s picture above for yourself.  First, start with a pony tail to gather your hair together.  Then separate the ponytail into two halves, take two strands from the outside of each half and pick up a piece of hair as you cross the strands over each other.  Repeat and work your way down until you reach the end of your braid, then secure it with an elastic band.  If you want, you can wrap a piece of hair around the elastic band to hide it.  It’s easier to do on dry, one length hair, but you can also braid layered hair if you use some smoothing gel on it.

As a hairdresser I think her bohemian braid was an awesome choice. Hopefully, Fergie’s braid will encourage more fun and trendy looks for long hair.
