When it comes to boho hairstyles, braids are all the rage. Not only are they easy to do, but they come in a variety of styles from dutch to french, regular, fishtail, and more; there’s no end to the types of styles you can do with these.
Since boho girls love their braids, that’s what we’ll be focusing on today. Below are three easy boho hairstyles that incorporate pretty much every braid you can think of, in three different ways.

1. Chandelier braids
While this braid is the most complicated of them all, it is also the most beautiful and fits the bohemian style the best.
While it looks a bit daunting, once you are able to master this look, you won’t want to wear anything else. This style incorporates different types of braids but you can switch it up and use whichever ones you like the best.
This look is perfect for a fun, casual look but can also be dressed up if done right.
2. Milkmaid braids
This braided style is easy yet cute! Simply separate your hair into two equal sections. Braid like normal but when you finish, bring the braids to the top of your head and pin in place.
This look is perfect for a cute spring or summer feel. It’s also great for casual or fancy events. Try curling your hair beforehand like the woman in the tutorial above to add some extra flair.
3. Rope side braid
This braid is the easiest of all to do. You simply grab pieces of your hair and twist them around each other, grabbing more pieces as you go. This look is perfect for the bohemian girl who is short on time.
It can also be worn to formal, business, and casual events and works perfectly for all three. I love how easy yet beautiful this braid is.
4. Messy Bun Braid
Boho buns have been making a comeback these days and it is no wonder why. They are simple, effortlessly chic, and easy to do.
To do this style, make a deep right side part in your hair and gather a small section of hair from the left side of your head and dutch braid, adding hair in as you go. When you reach the nape of your neck, gather all of your hair into a low ponytail with a large elastic. Instead of pulling the ponytail all the way through, pull it through halfway to create a messy bun at the nape of your neck.
To finish off the boho bun hairstyle, pull out small sections from the center of the braid to make your braid look bigger and thicker. Finally, wrap pieces of hair around your elastic band in the back and secure with bobby pins to hide the elastic.
5. Casual Bohemian Curls Hairstyle
This boho look is ideal for ladies with natural waves or straight hair.
On clean, dry hair, apply some glossing cream through the mid-lengths and ends. Then with a 1″-1 ¼” curling iron, take large sections and curl, leaving the last two inches out. Before you release the curling iron, pull it through the ends of your hair to get the ends nice and straight. Repeat all over your head and shake out your curls, then rake with your fingers.
Add some dry shampoo for volume, then spray on some texturizing spray for extra texture and body. Finish off this boho hairstyle with boho-inspired makeup.
6. Updo Bohemian Hairstyle
This boho hairstyle is so cute and easy to do. It starts with curled hair, so rock your natural waves or add curls with a wand or curling iron before you begin. Then, prep your hair with your favorite texture spray.
Split your hair into two sections, a top section, and a bottom section. Take the bottom section and, using clear elastic, make it like you are creating a ponytail but don’t pull the ends all the way through — this creates a little bun. Take the ends of your hair that weren’t pulled through and loop them up into the same elastic, creating a second bun below the first. Repeat with the top section of hair and secure with bobby pins.
If you have any shorter pieces remaining in the front, twist them, then pull them back toward your updo and secure them with more bobby pins. Pull out a few pieces for a messy look and finish with more texture spray.
