Charming Bohemian Hairstyles to Try
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
This charming bohemian hairstyle exudes a dainty, summery feel. It’s also a great hairstyle to wear at garden or beach weddings.
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
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.

Just take a small section of hair on one side of your hair, create a small braid, tie the ends with an elastic, and keep the braid in place with a bobby pin. You can also create another braid on the other side of your hair if you want a symmetrical look.
10. 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.
11. Flower Crown

12. Summer Festival Braid
Chilling out at the beach with your ukulele? Do it in style! Braid a small section of your hair and scrunch the rest of your strands to create a festive but laid-back look.
