Bohemian Braids | Cute Hairstyles

For a hairstyle that is quite simple yet elegant looking, I recommend this one.  The style, and variations of it, tends to be very popular with teenagers.

Bohemian Braids (back)

You simply section off four small squares of hair with your rat-tail comb, two near the front of the head and two at the crown (both on either side of the part), and then microbraid the strands.  Rather than rubberband each braid, have your daughter hold the braids as you complete them.

Once you are finished braiding, gather all four braids together and rubberband them.  Then simply comb out the remaining section of the braids so that is blends with the rest of her hair.

FrontBohemian Braids (Front)

You can do this hairstyle with either straight hair, as I have here, or with waves or curls.   The braids add the perfect accent!  You can also do the front braids closer to the forehead if you wish.  (If you use a flat iron to straighten the hair, please spray on a good heat protectant/conditioner first.) Enjoy!

Items Needed: Rat-tail comb, one elastic hairband, spray on conditions to control flyaways, bow or clip (as desired).

Time Requirement: 5-7 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Happy Hairdoing!

    Even though it’s soooooo easy, I literally got a million comments at school today! It was so easy and quick (I did it on myself) and really worth perfecting!

    I absolutely live this hairstyle! It’s sooo easy but wicked pretty:) I am planning on doing it for my casual school dance with spiral curls! But I do have a question…Would you recommend curling the bottom of the braids (the part that you tie off)???

    im 13 and me & my friends absolutely luv ur website!! Ur family is so cute 🙂 & u do an amazing job with ur daughter’s & your hair. but is it ok not to use the heat protectant? i dont have it because i use a flat iron only about once a week or so & i thought it might b pointless.

  • Rachel

    I have a question… is it bad if you don’t use “heat protectant”? I never use it and I use heat to style my hait quite a bit.
