Create Effortless, Beautiful Boho Waves at Home
Ah, the beautiful bohemian life. From the runway to the festival field, natural looking waves are the perfect way to capture laid-back summer vibes. Even if sunny blue skies seem a world away, you can inject carefree boho style into your everyday look with some gorgeous natural waves.
There is one very big secret to natural boho waves - texture. Forget a sleek and silky mane, boho waves are tousled and messy. If you have super-straight locks, your hair routine needs to add some serious texture to your strands before you begin to style.
Luckily for us, professional hair stylist Jeanie Syfu has a bagful of tips on how to expertly fake that sun-and-salt texture. So you can look like you’ve just strolled back from holiday—every day.
Jeanie uses the TRESemmé Smooth and Shine Collection to perfect a long-lasting boho look, which will keep you feeling hair confident from day to night. Here’s how to create carefree-looking waves from the comfort of your own home – in just 5 easy steps.
Tools needed to achieve the look: Blow dryer, medium-size round brush, curling wand and relaxed vibes.
STEP 1: Prep your hair for styling. Wash it with lightweight Smooth and Shine Shampoo for a thorough cleanse. Then rinse. Apply the conditioner from mid-shaft to the ends, combing through from root to tips. Leave 2-3 minutes for the formulation to help moisturize and add texture to your hair, then rinse well.
STEP 2: With damp hair, we’re ready to begin styling. Blot away any excess water from your hair.
STEP 3: Flip your hair over (head down) and roughly blow-dry your hair on high heat, combing through with your fingers. Now take the round brush and fully dry your hair, without making a parting. Tip: A ceramic or metal brush will help your hair to hold the volume from the dryer better.
STEP 4: Section your hair and, holding the curling wand vertically, wrap each section round the barrel. Make sure that you’re wrapping away from your face.
Tip: As you curl each section round the barrel, flick your wrist. This makes the waves look more natural.
STEP 5: Once you’ve finished the last section, rake your fingers through the curls (don’t use a brush). Finish with a light mist of Tresemmé Freeze Hold Hairspray.
And that’s your holiday/weekend/festival look done, you beautiful bohemian, you!
