Boho hair is effortlessly chic and dreamy. Stylists are going to see lots of requests for bohemian styles this summer. The essence of boho is unconventional in a way that’s regarded as artistic. These styles are unique in that they embrace messy. Here’s how to achieve the elegant slept-in look for your clients.
Boho Fishtail Braids
Bohemian braids are often contrasting in that there are intricate and tight sections and others that are loose and messy. A common boho braid is a fishtail braid that is widened with strands pulled out. Give the individual sections volume with KEVIN.MURPHY’s PUFF.POWDER. Layers work well with this because they naturally poke out of the braid without extra teasing or pulling. Ask your client if they’d be willing to get layers so they’ll be able to wear the boho style on a day-to-day basis.
Small Face-Framing Braids
Tiny, delicate braids are also a large part of boho culture. These can be loose hanging among free-flowing hair or woven into a larger braid to seem more intricate. Honestly, this is the best way to look like a character from Game of Thrones, and we’re here for it. Plump the hair with ColorProof’s SuperPlump Powderfix Instant Volume Texture Powder Spray
and scrunch with Keune’s So Pure Texture Spray
to give it a slept-in look. Then, loosely braid small sections that hang, so they frame the face.
Free Flowing Loose Waves
Tease your client’s roots to boost volume. Then, add some texture to the look with ELEVEN’s Sea Salt Texturizer
to give the hair those gorgeous beachy waves. Then, curl the hair, wait for it to cool, and brush it out. Too tight curls make the look seem too uptight for bohemian. Lock it in with a quality hairspray. A solid hairspray will give you the volume that you want without becoming stiff. Choose one that’s long-lasting and flexible, like Aloxxi’s Working Hairspray
. The key to free-flowing boho hair is texture and volume.
