Boho Hairstyles: 20 Coolest Bohemian Hair Options You Can Try!

Boho hairstyles are no longer just on the rise, but have completely evolved, thanks to the current love of healthy natural living and obsession with 70s fashion. Are you ready to be blown away by some insane creativity and skill? Prepare for disheveled braids, buns, and twists in creative bohemian hairstyles.

Today’s trendy boho updos, downdos, and half-up styles include pastel highlights, an abundance of accessories or plant parts used as accessories, and a variety of braided elements. Draw inspiration from nature and 70’s hairstyles, experiment with the looks listed below, and create your own unique styles!

1. Romantic Florettes

This intricate style begins with a waterfall braid. Next, bohemian florettes (loose braids swirled into a circle) are added. These are made from the sections taken from beneath the waterfall braid. The latter features strands from the hairline for a flowy, elegant appearance.


2. Voluminous Fishtail Updo

Boho hairstyles can be interpreted in approximately five thousand different ways, including Old Hollywood Glam. Being a bombshell means having soft hair with plenty of volume. First, apply a salt spray or a spray designed specifically for braiding. Then tease your hair to create a loose fishtail. Pull it for maximum volume, then pin the end under.


3. Half Updo with a Crown

Half updos are one of the most romantic boho hairstyles. The crimped texture and cute headband made of real flowers add extra tenderness and lightness. What an inspirational combination!


4. Boho Rocker Glam

For a less bohemian look, divide the top section of your hair into two side parts and clip it up. Then, make a low ponytail as slick and perfect as possible. Tease the upper section, then make a chunky fishtail braid towards the nape of the neck, wrap a piece of the pony around it at the nape, and fishtail the upper part of the low ponytail.


5. Mystical Fishtail Crown

This fishtail headband braid distinguishes the boho hairstyle. Typically, flower accessories added to braids are colorful, but the white ones look refreshing and unexpected, don’t they?


6. Braid on Braid Downdo

This princess hairstyle is stunning and unique. Layer the braids, experimenting with different tightnesses of your fishtail plaits. The trick is to divide and conquer! For an extra touch of style, wear a Princess headband.


7. Two-Toned Bohemian Updo

For a simple take on the trend, try a messy low twisted updo with boho-inspired accessories. The colorful hair complements this imperfect yet wearable look. A salt spray (applied before beginning) helps keep the haphazard twists and braids in place.

8. Amazing Braids and Bun

Boho hair can be both messy and perfect. We enjoy experimenting with different braid and bun combinations, and this one is definitely on our to-try list. The contrast between the loose and tight braids is really cool and highlights the dimensional color.


9. Soft and Feminine Boho Updo

This chic hairstyle is extremely versatile. The fishtail headband and loops sliding from the crown to the nape add elegance, but the face-framing wisps of hair are not overly formal. Pair it with a 70s-inspired dress and you’re sure to turn heads that day. Natural colors and textures are so boho.

10. Yarn Wrapped Braid

Think beyond the typical hair accessories! We love chain, flowers, and tiny leaves, but what about yarn? Yes, yarn. You can add crazy color to your hair without committing. This braided, wrapped bohemian style is eye-catching and ideal for a music festival or concert.

11. Retro Glam Meets Boho

Boho hairstyles can be as formal as you like. This is an excellent choice for medium hair because it provides just enough length without being overly long. The wrap can be styled with a headband or as a topsy ponytail, which is not wrapped through but hidden inside the wrap.


12. Curly Braided Downdo

This boho style is incredible. This braid is best suited for long hair and is made up of a series of loops that form a chunky, intricately plaited braid. The loose curls at the end look great with the twists and twirls above, so if you have straight hair, add curls first.


13. Waterfall Crown Braid with Messy Bun

Cute braided updos should become your new favorite thing. To try this bohemian hairstyle, make a waterfall braid on one side of your head, dropping the strands across your head rather than down along the length. Then, incorporate those strands into the braid on the opposite side of your head. Lowlights and dark roots make the blond braids stand out.


14. Bubble Braids

Boho hairstyles like this one evoke the 1970s in the best possible way. Allow rainbow highlights to serve as hair accessories for a look that clearly identifies you as the drummer’s girlfriend. Try different braid styles, such as crown, wrapped, and banded.


15. Faux Hawk Braided Hairstyle

This super cool hairstyle is ideal for long hair. Keep it sleek by making perfect upper-section parts and slicking the rest back. Tease the top, which can be made to stand up with the proper tension. Add bubbles to bring everything together.

16. Cropped Boho Updo

If you have short hair, you can still wear boho styles. Twist your hair from the front to the back to form the base of a cute rowanberry twig. The funky nape undercut creates the ideal combination of vintage and modern style.


17. Colorful Milkmaid Braids

An on-trend boho braid should have a natural-looking texture. So don’t make your hairstyle too neat; instead, leave it slightly messy. Part your hair down the center (as if for pigtails) and save any loose strands in the front. Then braid, wrap around, and pin into place.


18. Dutch Braided Bohemian Hawk

This braided mohawk with side cornrows is both feminine and edgy, and the peachy ombre adds a special touch. Whatever style you choose, the brighter color will stand out against the dark blonde (or brown) base, and a messy Dutch braid is a great option.


19. Long Boho Pigtail Braids

Accessories are an important part of any chic boho style. So let’s discuss chains. Always base your hairstyle on the chain you will be wearing. If it’s supposed to be straight down the middle of your hair, make sure to do a perfect middle part.

20. Cascading Waterfall Side Braid

Don’t get us wrong. Boho hair does not have to be complicated; in fact, it can be very simple! The style is more about the relaxed, creative vibe than the time it took to complete. A side waterfall braid is an excellent way to achieve this look (while keeping your hair out of your face).
