The Ultimate Spring Hair Trend: Boho Waves at My Hair Guru Salon in Paisley
Citing hippy rock & roll and Californian influences, the ‘Boho Waves’ hair trend allows us to channel our inner cool for the perfectly undone look – and nothing quite says Spring has arrived like this iconic style.
From festival chick to free-spirited hippie, we round up the hottest wavy looks to go for this season. Soft and feminine, but also cool and messy…these waves have bohemian written all over them.
1970s Effortless, Sexy Waves
The effortless sexuality of the 60s and 70s rock & roll serve to inspire this sensual look. Subtle volume at the crown and a lot of texture combined with undone waves (to give that hint of edginess!) are just enough for this look to appear sexy, flirty and cool.
Boho Beach Babe
Evoke your inner oceanic goddess and celebrate all things sun and sea with some soft, deconstructed, flowing waves. For the ultimate beach babe look, take sections of your hair, varying in size and wrap around your GHD tongs holding for around 3-5 seconds. Once the entire hair has been done, you can keep them tight or for boho glamour run your fingers through them, so they blend with each other.
Inspired by the long, carefree hair worn by women during the mid-Sixties hippie movement, the imperfect curl is one of the hottest looks this Spring. Transform curls into relaxed, unravelled waves by brushing them through after styling. This soft look pairs well with natural skin, brushed eyebrows and bare lips.
Soft, Messy Festival Waves
During the late 1960s and early 1970s, infamous festivals such as Woodstock and Glastonbury saw women let their hair flow naturally into tousled messy waves, paired with the occasional loose plait. This is a look that sees the modern-day woman wearing the kind of cool, bit messy and sexy waves oozing with a laid-back festival feel.
