2. Single loose boho braid (h/t Lauren McBride)
This cute style only involves one braid and is perfect for days when you don't have a lot of time to spend on your hair. This style is great if you already have wavy or curly hair, but if you have straight hair, simply add in some waves with a curling wand.
3. Two messy boho braids with a headband (h/t HELEN TORSGÅRDEN)
The greatest thing about this style is how incredibly easy it is to do. The key to this style is to make the braids as messy as possible.

4. Boho braid with a top knot (h/t Kassinka)

5. Half up boho braids (h/t Latest-Hairsyles.com)
These boho braids are super pretty, but also super simple. All you have to do is create 4 basic braids, and attach them together at the back of your head. Pro tip: makes sure to use a clear elastic to secure all the braids together, so it blends in with the rest of your hair.
6. Boho side braid (h/t Wonder Forest)
This chunky boho side braid is perfect for that summer festival look. Make sure to leave the braid loose, and pull some pieces of hair out if necessary to make it look more relaxed. If you have super fine hair, consider adding in some dry shampoo before you begin braiding, as it will help the braid to hold better.
7. Mixed size boho braids (h/t Lyss Ryann)
The best thing about boho braids is that they don't have to be perfect to look good. In this case, the differently sized braids are what makes the style so cute. Pro tip: use extensions to give yourself extra volume. With boho hairstyles, the more hair, the better.
