This boho hair tutorial is for an easy, effortless style that can be worn with curly or straight hair. I don’t have a lot of time to style my hair in the mornings but I don’t want it to look the same every day. Wearing my hair straight or naturally curly always offers some variation but a few extra steps can make it look like I spent much more time styling my hair. This boho hair style can achieved in less than five minutes and it’s naturally pretty. It can easily be embellished with decorative hair pins or clips to dress it up or add a personal touch that defines your unique style.
I always look for quality hair care products that are reliable and affordable. Since 1979, AUSSIE has been producing hair care products that women use all over the world. They have a comprehensive line of products and are consistently rated high by consumers. Clearly, they are doing things right! We will use Aussie products not only to keep this style effortless but also affordable. Plus, I know Aussie products produce beautiful results! I’ve talked about how much I love the Aussie line in the past and I reviewed some additional products from their line in this post. Now, let’s get started with our hair tutorial!
Boho Hair Tutorial – Preparation Steps
Begin with clean hair
While this hair style can be achieved with straight or curly hair, the one thing that will ruin the hair style is frizz. Pick up a shampoo and conditioner that is specifically formulated to manage frizz and provide humidity control. My recommendation is the AUSSIE TOTAL MIRACLE COLLECTION 7N1 SHAMPOO and the AUSSIE TOTAL MIRACLE COLLECTION 7N1 CONDITIONER. The AUSSIE TOTAL MIRACLE 7-IN-1 TOTAL MIRACLE COLLECTION are some of the newer products in the Aussie line and they have a moisturizing frizz control system. The shampoo and conditioner do an excellent job at detangling hair and leaving it clean and smelling fresh. The shampoo and conditioner smooths out the hair eliminating frizz and fly-aways.
The name says it all. You get 7 benefits in just 1 product.
- Strength against damage
- Silky softness
- Split end protection
- Nourishing moisture
- Humidity control
- Brilliant shine
- Lasting softness
Deep condition your hair (if necessary)
If your hair needs an extra moisture boost or is damaged from chemicals and processing, the AUSSIE 3 MINUTE MIRACLE STRONG CONDITIONING TREATMENT can be applied after using the shampoo and conditioner in the 7N1 collection. The 3 Minute Miracle Strong Conditioning Treatment deep conditions hair and makes it 10x stronger against damage. Apply the product and wait 3 minutes before rinsing it out to revitalize your hair.
Dry your hair
There is no special technique when drying your hair to achieve this boho style. You can dry your hair as you normally would. Decide if you would like it curly or straight and the style will look great either way. A great tip I can offer is don’t take the blow dryer to your hair until it’s almost completely dry. This small change in your hair drying routine will help keep your hair healthier. The less heat you apply to your hair, the better. Allow your hair to air dry while you put on makeup, eat breakfast, prepare your kids for school, and perform whatever tasks you may have. Come back and blow dry your hair when there is less moisture. Not only will you spend less time drying it, you will experience less breakage and your hair will retain more moisture.
Boho Hair Tutorial – Styling Steps
Style your hair
Now you are ready to style your hair and in just minutes you will be done.
Optional step – Add tousled curls
Whether you are wearing your hair curly or straight, you can add some smooth wavy curls using a large barrel curling iron (1 1/4 – 1 1/2 inch barrel). This gives the hair a more polished and finished look which complements this hair style. It is not necessary to meticulously curl all your hair. The objective is to create a free and flowing look. A few sections of curled hair in the back and on the sides is all that is needed. It shouldn’t take more than 5 – 8 minutes to add a few tousled curls to complete the style. Remember a boho style is natural and should look effortless so it’s best to keep the styling to a minimum.
Create a simple boho twisted crown
Step 1 – Separate a 1 inch section of hair in front of each ear and and place the rest of your hair behind your shoulders. You will only be working with the 2 sections of hair in front of your ears.
Step 2 – Using both hands, pull each section of hair towards the back of your head while loosely twisting the sections of hair. If it’s difficult for you to get both sections smooth and directing back, use a clip to hold one side while you prepare the other side and then remove the clip to work with both sections of hair.
Step 3 – With both hands, pull the sections loosely around the back of your head to form a crown of hair and tie the two section of hair together in the back as if you were beginning to tie a shoelace.
Step 4 – Once the hair is tie together and interlocked in the back of your head, secure it with a hair pin. You can also twist the sides a bit more if you prefer and use a hair pin to secure the hair on the side so the crown is securely in place. Insert the hair pins and angle them downward so they cannot be seen.
This hair style is especially pretty if you add some flowers or pretty clips along the top of the crown. It’s the perfect boho hair style and so easy! You don’t always have to spend a lot of money on hair care products to get good ones! You can purchase and find more details about all AUSSIE products on Amazon.com.
