Can’t braid to save your life? Don’t worry. A messy side braid is perfect when you’re going boho. Simply put your hair on one side, divide it into three sections, and loosely cross one section over the middle one. Then, loosely cross the other section over the new middle section. Continue until you finish creating a messy three-strand braid and secure the end with an elastic. Loosen some strands of hair to frame your face, and add a boho band to complete the look.

While we’re all about braids, you can experiment with unique weaving styles like the flip-in braid. To create this boho hairstyle, take a small section of hair from each side of your temple, twist them, and gather them on your crown. Secure with an elastic. Then, create a small gap above your elastic, flip the tied section, and insert it through the gap. Follow this process until the twisted and flipped sections reach your nape. After the last flip, secure the ends of your flip-in braid with an elastic.

5. Baby Braids
