1. Messy & braided half-up

The free-spirited gals of the flower power era were all about the chillness of it all, so when it comes to boho hairstyles, the messier, the better. Add braids here and there and you’ve got the perfect Coachella look.

TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray

Editor’s tip: To perfect that messy look, you’d want some texture in your hair, so before you start braiding and pinning, give your tresses a good spray of TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray. It’s our favorite product to use for messy, tousled hairstyles!

2. Fishtail side braid

This one leans toward the fancier side of the bohemian style spectrum and is perfect for fancy affairs like weddings (whether you’re a bride, a bridesmaid, or a guest). Just make sure there’s enough “disheveledness” in your look to stay true to the boho-chic charm. Just loosen your braids—unevenly—and maybe leave a few strands loose on the sides of your face.

3. Boho band

Pair your Woodstock waves with a braided head band which you will be wearing across your forehead. It even works with straight hair so it’s an easy way to bohemianize your look.

Dove Oxygen and Nourishment Shampoo

Editor’s tip: Bohemian hairstyles are characterized by flowy, textured tresses. The last thing you want, if you’re trying to rock festival-inspired ‘dos, is flat, limpy hair. Make sure you have the bounce and volume that you need by shampooing with Dove Oxygen & Nourishment Shampoo. It leaves your hair looking and feeling soft, nourished and full of natural volume.

Here’s another easy one. If you like a more feminine look than what the braided band offers, you can opt for a pretty flower crown instead. These hair accessories come in different sizes, with some featuring huge petals, and others with more delicate details. Wear it over wavy or straight hair, updo or downdo. It’s a pretty hairstyle option for dreamy occasions.

5. Braided bangs

To create this look, do a deep side part, then lace braid your fringe (or the front section if you don’t have bangs) all the way to the ends. The braided section will frame your features beautifully and will keep your hair out of your face, so you still look neat and put-together even if you’re sporting a messy, tousled ‘do.

So whether you’re music festival-bound, hitting a boho-chic themed party, or just want to channel your inner boho babe without anywhere special to go, you’ve got these pretty bohemian hairstyles to take inspiration from!
