    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!

    Beach Waves or Defined Waves

    Beach Waves or Defined Waves

    One of the hottest hairstyle trends this spring and summer is soft beach waves, also called the boho (bohemian) look or beachy waves. As the weather gets warmer and humidity levels rise, those of you with some natural wave to your hair have two choices; you can fight it, or go with it! I highly suggest the latter. There are only two, maybe three things, that are essential for making beach waves easy; the cut, the how-to and the right product . . . that’s it!

    Wouldn’t all you wavy haired girl’s love a defined, soft curlish look to your wave like Kate Hudson? Now scrunching works alright for some of you, but if you want more than what that gives you, Kevin Murphy, renowned hairdresser and product innovator with Modern Salon, bring us this how-to video on creating soft defined beach waves.

    I was surprised to find that they also give detailed info on how to cut this hair style. The hair cutting directions are for hairdressers. If you are not a hairdresser, don’t try it. The styling techniques, however, are easy to follow for all and can be printed.

    Back in the late 70’s and early 80’s, a method of perming called, “transfer perms” were done only by a minority of hairdressers in my area. The reason might have been because it was a longer process and therefore cost a bit more. But, the results of this wrapping method for perming was gorgeous! You could achieve a large defined curl that held its shape. It basically involved rolling the hair on a small rod, partially processing and then “transferring” each rod to a larger rod and finishing the processing.

    This type of “transfer” process is how Kevin achieves this soft defined beach wave. This type of wave will last a long time as it has a strong base curl structure. The smaller rod first forms a tighter curl and the second larger roller softens it to a strong holding larger wave. Does that make sense? Well this is why I love video’s . . . video’s and pictures tell a thousand words . . . Thanks Kevin and Modern Salon!
