Keep in mind that there are different ways of sporting bohemian waves. Whether you wear them teased and flowing like Kate Hudson or half-up and braided like Ashley Olsen, I always recommend starting with the basics, and then creating your own ‘bohemian’ look.

Get started

Apply a small amount of texturiser cream to damp hair. Separate your hair into one inch sections and twist in a clockwise direction. Secure it to your head using hairgrips. If you want big waves, make big sections. If you want small waves, make small sections. Continue twisting your hair until complete. If you don’t want to put your hair into twists, you can also braid them following the same rule: big braids for big waves and small braids for small waves.

Once that’s done, it’s best to you leave it overnight. If you’re in a rush, you can also run the hairdryer through your hair. The trick is that your hair must be totally dry. Once it’s dry, take your hair out of the twists or braids. Remove the hairgrips and please avoid brushing your hair! Brushing can make your hair frizzy. Instead, loosen and set the waves with your fingers.



Massage your scalp for more volume and use a root-lifting hairspray if you need more help. For longer lasting waves, spray maximum hold hairspray before walking down the aisle. This is an easy hairdo but you run the risk of the waves falling throughout your wedding day if you don’t put enough hairspray on. Be generous!
