• Easy Peasy Hair Tutorial: The Boho Up Do

    I think this simple up do is perfect for boho brides.

    But also a fab hairstyle choice for bridesmaids, wedding guests, summer BBQs and just day to day shenanigans!

    The good news is, it might just be one of the easiest hair dos to master on the planet.

    All you need is a stretchy hairband and you’re good to go.

    Here’s my simple step by step tutorial from my own experience: 

    Step 1. Pop the headband on top of your head like a crown.

    Step 2. Take a small section of your hair from the front, fold it over the hairband and pull it back through, underneath the headband. Keep pulling the hair up, over and through until you get to the end of the section.

    Step 3. You are going to work round from one side of your head to the other. Repeat with the next section along.

    Step 3. Repeat for all the sections of hair until it’s all neatly tucked into and around your headband. Et ‘voila! Pretty boho hair!

    Here’s a fabulous video tutorial from Luxy Hair on how to create this look:

    Top Tips for Creating This Boho Chic Hairstyle:

    It’s suitable for a wide variety of textures and hair lengths from chin length to bottom skimming. However it’s simplest for ladies with naturally big, bouncy curls or waves.

    ~ This hairstyle works best on day old hair ~ if you have fine, silky hair use a small amount of wax or a spritz of hairspray to give it a little more grip.

    ~ Loosen sections and pull out a few strands from the front to create a more relaxed feel or keep the folded sections tight for a pretty Danish inspired look.

    ~ If you have poker straight hair like me, curling your hair beforehand makes the finished look so much more romantic and bridal.

    ~ The more teasing and volume at the crown, the more glamourous the finished look will be.

    ~ You could add to the boho feel by braiding small strands of hair from the under section of your hair to create an intricate look. After all, braids are synonymous with bohemian bridal style!

    ~ To dress up the look, use a lace or metallic, sparkly hairband (you can normally find cheap, plaited gold leather hairbands in H&M which would be perfect for a Grecian boho look!).

    ~ For that extra ‘wow’ factor you could attach pretty fabric flowers to your headband, like this:
