Scroll down for step by step instructions on this bohemian braids tutorial.
Before you start off with any of the hairstyles make sure to use a curling iron and add some soft curls to your hair.
Start this bohemian braid by separating the top half of your hair and make a ponytail. Make sure that when you are on your last loop of the hair elastic, don’t pull the complete hair through it. You need to make a small bun.
Take some hair from one side of your bun and start braiding it. You could either opt for a simple braid or you can do a fishtail braid. Just make sure to secure the ends of your braid with a hair elastic.
The final step in this hairstyle is to cover your ponytail’s hair elastic. To do so, take a little bit of hair and wrap it around the elastic and you are all set.
Braids On Braids
This bohemian hairstyle is all about braids. The first step is to sweep back your hair and make a small rectangle right on top of your head and section of that hair.
Now start braiding the hair from that rectangle shape. After a couple of times, start adding in hair from the sides to your braid. Do this till you have gone 3-4 inches back. Braid the rest of the hair normally and use a hair elastic to secure it.
Add some texturizing spray over your braid and gently pull the braids so that it gives a full and voluminized look.
Pick up another rectangle shape on one side of the braid and repeat the above mentioned steps. Do the same on the other side as well. If you are not able to do the french braiding, then you could also just do it with a simple braid.
Once all the braids are made, put all your hair together into a ponytail. Now you need to make a bun with the remaining hair hanging out of the ponytail. You would have to make a knot and use booby pins to secure everything in place. Don’t worry if it is messy since that is what we are aiming for.
With all the jumping and dancing that you would be doing with this hairstyle at a music festival, it would be wise to use hair spray so that you don’t have to worry about your falling all over the place.
This bohemian hair braid is basically a crown braid which can be further accessorized by using fresh flowers. Start the hairstyle by splitting your hair in half. Use a hair clip to secure one side of the hair so that it doesn’t come in the way.
To make this hairstyle, you would have to lace braid your hair from the back of your head to all the way around. So flip all your hair in the front and start braiding it.
Once you have braided it couple of times, start adding in hair from the side which is closest to your face. You need to keep braiding your hair over the crown of your head until you reach the starting point.
After you have secured your hair tightly with a hair elastic, gently pull the braids to add more volume to your crown braid hairstyle.
Next step would be to tuck in the ends of the braid under your french braid using bobby pins. To give a softer look, you can pull out few strand sof hair from either side of your face.
The final step of this bohemian braid is an optional one. You could either leave the hairstyle as is or decorate it with fresh flowers or any other hair accessories.
