Do you want that french braid goddess look but do not plan on wearing anything too formal for that look? You can have a more casual and laid back updo with the boho braid updo. The boho braid updo is more like the french braid but do not have to be perfectly executed to achieve that look.
Start off by parting one side of your hair. Create a hairline french braid on one side and start braiding down towards your ear. When braiding the hair, incorporate other hair that run along the side into which your braid passes.
Continue braiding all the way down the hair strand. Secure it with a bobby pin at the back of your head, underneath your hair.
Split your hair into two sections the lower portion of your head and the upper portion of your head.
Twist the upper portion into a bun and secure with a bobby pin.
Take the bottom portion of your hair and split it into 3 parts. Make a standard three strand braid and continue braiding all the way down.
Wrap the braid around the mini french twist and bobby pin it into place. To add more volume, you can push the bun upwards.
Pull out some strands of your hair at the sides to create a boho and hippie look.
Do not fuss about making it all perfect because the purpose of this is to achieve a casual and laid back look that should not look like so much effort is used to make it.
