How to Get the Messy Boho Updo
Step 1: Section Your Hair
Divide your hair into two sections – top and bottom. Pin the top part of your hair away for now.
Step 2: Pull into Ponytail
Pull the bottom section into a tight ponytail.
Step 3: Time to Tease
Starting at the bottom going up, gently tease the ponytail.
Step 4: Wrap Around
Wrap the teased hair around the band and secure with hair grips or pins. Don’t worry if it looks messy – this adds to the look.
Step 5: Curl the Top
Let’s go back to our top section. Unpin the hair and curl it using a curling wand or a tong. Afterwards, loosen the hair gently with your fingers.
Step 6: More Teasing
Tease your hair around the crown area for extra volume.
Step 7: Playful Curls
Play around with the curls by pinning them on to your messy bun. This doesn’t have to be in any order as we’re going for a nonchalant boho look.
Step 8: Finally Neaten the Crown
Neaten the teased hair around your crown and apply hair spray.
