Bohemian Hairstyles That Give You a Carefree, Laidback Look

Inject a free-spirited vibe into your everyday look with these pretty bohemian hairstyles.

Bohemian hairstyles are not just for themed parties. You can wear them every day as your signature look. Likewise, you can style your hair the boho-chic way even if you’re simply going to the mall or hanging out at your favorite coffee shop. Boho hairstyles have this laidback vibe that makes you look effortlessly chic. We won’t be surprised if you love them as much as we do. Read on to check out different bohemian hairstyles that you can experiment with.

1. Wavy Hair With Boho Band

Switch from a regular ‘do to a bohemian hairstyle real quick by putting on a boho band. Pair it with wavy hair to nail a textured, boho-chic hairstyle.

Editor’s tip: It’s easy to nail any bohemian hairstyle when your hair is healthy. That’s why we recommend washing your hair with Dove Botanical Silicone Free Shampoo for Damaged Hair Restore. It is made with 100% botanical oil with pink Moroccan rose extract that restores dry and damaged hair. It even has floating petals that dissolve when you lather for added nourishing power! This shampoo also has a gentle, silicone-free formula, so you can use it as you transition to a clean beauty routine. 

Complement your silicone-free shampoo with Dove Botanical Hair Conditioner for Damaged Hair Restore. It is also made with 100% botanical oil with pink Moroccan rose extract that restores dry and damaged hair. This conditioner nourishes your hair and leaves it beautiful and lightweight. 

2. Messy Side Braid

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.

Editor’s tip: Braiding your hair frequently can cause hair breakage, so use Cream Silk Ultimate Reborn Hair Fall Defense Tri-Oleo Conditioner. It is infused with Tri-Oleo Complex, which is a mix of three nourishing oils such as argan oil, rosehip oil, and marula oil, that restores hair’s lost nourishment. It helps make your hair stronger from the inside out and protects it against hair fall. 

3. Half-Up Boho Braid

4. Boho Flip-In Braid

While we’re all about braids, you can experiment with unique weaving styles like the flip-in braid. To create this 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

Let your baby braid be a pretty accent against your soft and smooth hair.

If you’re looking for something subtle, adding baby braids as accents to your hair is the way to go. Curl the end of your hair for a chic finishing touch.

Editor’s tip: Keep frizz at bay by using Love Beauty and Planet Argan Oil & Lavender Smooth and Serene Shampoo. It has ethically sourced argan oil, which is known to nourish hair and leave it smooth and moisturized. It also leaves your hair with the calming fragrance of French lavender. This shampoo also comes in a bottle that’s made from 100% recyclable materials, so you’re able to help take care of the planet while taking care of your hair, too! 

6. Bun With Headband

Speaking of tamed hair, what better way to get it than a sleek bun? Wrap it with a cute printed scarf as a headband for a perfect bohemian hairstyle.

9. Messy Fishtail Braid

Leave your fishtail braid disheveled and imperfect to create a bohemian hairstyle you can wear when working from home or running quick errands.
