This boho hair style looks like it would be hard to complete, but in reality, all you need to know how to do is a French braid.

This style is one of my preferred hair looks for myself because it keeps my hair away from my face and looks more elegant than a bun. This hair-do is like a little black dress; perfect for everyday wear and more formal occasions.

What You Will Need

Hairbrush, 2 Small Hair Ties, 2 ½ Inch Rollers, 2 Spiral Spin Screw Pins

Step Three

With your two hair ties, create two pigtails below your ears. Then drag your fingers through your hair by your temples, pulling down some stray pieces. With your rollers, curl up those stray pieces, rolling inward toward your temple.

Step Four

Take down a single pigtail and then starting at your forehead French braid the loose hair. Go all the way down your hair until you run out, it is okay if your layers stick out of the braid because this look is meant to look a bit messy. When you complete French braiding that side, do the same with the other.

Step Five

Take your braids and then tie them in a knot at the nape of your neck.

Step Six

Tuck the end of your braids into the knot, hiding the ends that are not braided.

Step Seven

Step Eight

At this point, do your makeup or go get breakfast with the rollers still in your hair. Right before you leave your house, take out the two rollers and brush the curls out a bit.

Step Nine

Step by Step: How To Increase Your Ponytail Volume

Hairdos featuring plaits in interwoven zigzag patterns have been popular for thousands of years in numerous cultures around the world. Today’s trendy hair braid styles combine new varieties with old traditions. If you wish your locks were long enough for the latest sensations, why wait for it to grow? Just use extensions instead for interlaced creations that allow styling versatility. We’ve paired all-natural AiryHair by attachment types with easy directions for a fishtail braid, rope twist, and upswept head crown.

Micro loop bundles add length for various hair braid styles. To create a side-swept fishtail that swings over one front shoulder, you can insert more extensions on just the decorative side. Part a thin vertical rooted section. Draw natural strands and AiryHair through tiny beads almost to your scalp. Crimp the mini rings firmly with special pliers to secure.

Step One

To make a fishtail, brush your hair’s length over your right or left shoulder. Divide it into two even halves. Separate a slender under-strip of hair (section A) from the farthest side closest to your neck. Bring it up and around, adding those inner strands to the other thick chunk (section B).

Step Two

Smooth them together. Going the opposite direction, repeat that process with your hairline locks. Cross the outermost narrow B segment by your face above the A half. Blend in to expand that portion.

Step Three

Keep duplicating those steps. Overlap the outermost Section A strip to join B. Lift B’s farthest strands over to mingle with Section A. As you continue from the outside in, a herringbone arrangement will emerge. Secure your braid’s ends with an invisible elastic band or colorful ribbon. Pinch outer edges to pancake or thicken them, even lopsided plaits, or create a messy casual look.

Rope TwistTry clip-in AiryHair extensions for quick extra length to design rope twist hair. Fasten wider extensions’ teeth below your parting line, starting near one ear and working your way across to the other. Fill in thin back and side areas with narrow strips to boost overall body.

Step One

Weaving your locks from one side in front of your shoulder creates a wrap-around effect that hangs down your back. Twist a hair section by your face. Do the same to another right behind it, lifting the second one above and around the first. For a coiled rope look, add extra strands to the current bottom portion, similar to French braiding.

Step Two

Drape it over your top piece. Continue that process until reaching your neckline.

Split your remaining tresses into two parts. Twist each clockwise. Wrap them around each other, using a counterclockwise direction to prevent unravelling.

Step Three

Bind the ends with an elastic band. Enjoy this elegant, polished appearance. Or for a windswept look, loosen the pattern with your fingers and brush it upward gently.

Glue in nail/u-tip strips to turn a braid hair extension look into a graceful upswept hairdo. A relative, friend, or stylist can use a hot fusion tool to attach these pre-bonded pieces. Separate a narrow rooted portion for the first addition. The artificial keratin on the U-shaped tips melts easily.

Step One

Apply bonding agent to natural strands and secure each segment over the warm adhesive.

Step Two

Follow the previous instructions to create fishtail braid or rope twist hair braid styles. Then drape it around your head above your forehead to form an entwined crown.

Step Three

Tuck the loose ends under unplaited hair. Fasten it with hidden bobby pins. For a softer look, free some tendrils surrounding your face. Once just for classic milkmaids, this updo looks beautiful at weddings and other formal events.

This hairstyle is perfect for your night out! Its volumized look will make everyone turn their heads in awe. In order to complete this look, your hair does need to be a longer length, but don’t fret! If that’s the case, just follow steps 1-7 and put a normal headband in. That way, you’ll get the volumized headband look without the braid.

Let’s get going.

What You Will Need

Straightener, Hairspray, Hairbrush, Comb, 4 Bobby Pins, 2 Small Hair Ties and 2 Duckbill Clips
