How to Create Gorgeous Bohemian Waves in Your Hair

Since many of our favorite retro hairstyles are back in trend this season, we thought we’d try out the sexy ’70s inspired bohemian waves while they’re still hot! If you have straight, shoulder length to long hair, you’re an ideal candidate for sporting this gorgeous undone look!

Follow this step-by-step tutorial to create bohemian waves in your hair.

To create this cool girl hair, you’ll need:

  • A volume inject hair mousse or volumizing hairspray
  • A fine toothed comb (optional)
  • Some duck bill clips or bobby pins
  • A heat protectant hairspray
  • A medium barreled curling iron
  • A fine hold hairspray

Get the Look

Step One

Work in a tiny amount of volume inject hair mousse or hairspray through your damp tresses and roughly blowdry them to lend texture to your strands.

Step Two

Using the tail of your comb, create an off-center hair part. You can also trace out a soft part with your fingers for a more natural look.

Step Three

Pin up the top half section of your hair on both sides of the part using duck bill clips or bobby pins. Leave the bottom half of your hair loose.

Step Four

Divide your loose hair into 6-8 vertical sections. Spritz them generously with some heat protectant hairspray.

Step Five

Wrap the hair sections on a medium-barreled curling iron and make loose curls. For the most natural effect, alternate the curls towards and away from your face by wrapping them in opposite directions on the curling iron.

Step Six

Untie the pinned up top hair sections and curl them under on the iron.

Step Seven

Use your fingers to gently lift the roots of your hair and rake through the lengths of your tresses as you go to loosen up the curls and create gorgeous bohemian waves.

Step Eight

Spritz your tresses with some hairspray to set it for longer wear and you’re good to go!


Hope you enjoyed this bohemian waves hair tutorial and would try the gorgeous ’70s inspired cool girl look. Until next time, happy styling!
