Quick and Easy Braided Boho Waves Tutorial
After seeing the amazing pictures from the first weeked of Coachella, I’ve been dying to re-create some of the boho beauty looks spotted at the event! You girls know that I’m a die-hard fan of loose waves, so I thought I’d use the TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done collection to add a boho flair to my everyday curls! If you’re headed to a music festival this season or let’s be honest – just want to look cute for your Instagram pics – this hairstyle is the perfect choice!
When you’re creating a wavy hairstyle, it’s important to use a lightweight shampoo and condition. Products filled with silicones will weigh done your hair and cause your waves to fall flat by midday. TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Shampoo and Condition is the perfect choice for this hairstyle, and the light formula will leave your hair clean and volumized.
After your hair is cleansed and conditioned, you’ll want to add a bit of texture back into your hair. Applying a handful of TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Wave Creation Sea Foam to wet hair will add massive volume, and the extra bit of texture will help your waves and braids stay in place for hours!
The next step to creating the perfect boho waves is to blow dry your hair completely. I like to flip my head over to add extra volume at the roots of my hair.
Now that your hair is completely prepped, it’s time for styling! Use a 1″ curling iron or curling wand to curl your hair away from your face and focus on starting the curls at the tops of your cheekbones for a relaxed and boho look. After your hair is completely curled, use your fingers to gently separate the curls into loose waves.
At this step in the tutorial, you will have the created the perfect, long-lasting waves! This easy hairstyle is perfect for any spring or summertime event. If you just want to rock boho waves for the day, add a spritz of TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Ulta Brushable Hold Hairspray, and you’ll be good to go.

To add a boho flair to your waves, create two small braids on each side of your face. I like to secure the ends of the braids with bobby pins until their secured with hairspray, but you can also use clear hair ties for a tighter and less relaxed braid. Twist a small section of hair and pin it to the back of your hair with two criss-crossing bobby pins and remove the bobby pins from your braids to finish this look!
Now that you’ve created the perfect boho hairstyle, you’ll want to keep it looking fabulous all day long. Add a quick spritz of the TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Ulta Brushable Hold Hairspray to prevent frizz and keep your waves in place. This hairspray is incredible for relaxed hairstyle because it adds the ideal amount of lightweight hold without the sticky/stiff texture of other hairsprays on the market!
And that’s it! You’ve created a breezy boho look with minimal effort. It’s the perfect hairstyle for musical festivals, days at the beach, or any summer event! The lightweight, silicone-free TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done makes this look incredibly easy to re-create!
