Boho Hairstyles for Music Festival Season and Spring

Music festival and concert season is upon us, which means putting together the perfect look to rock at your next event.

And even if you’re not able to make the escape to the California desert for Coachella or the foothills of Tennessee for Bonnaroo, you can still channel your inner festival-goer with these cute seasonal boho hairstyles.

They’re also perfect for a picnic date on the Mall or for a day of winery hopping outside of the city…we know we’re not the only ones with those items on our spring bucket lists.

Here are some of the best tutorials and inspiration pics for our favorite music festival and spring event boho hairstyles:

Boho Braids

Braids are about as classic of a hairstyle as you can get, but we’re all about braids that have more texture and less structure than your typical plait.

We promise these styles look more complex than they are, just have some patience and don’t get too worried about the end result, boho braids look better when they’re less-than-perfect!

The Cute Kind of Hat Hair

If you’re not super savvy with braids or styles that require much more than a quick scrunch of beach waves spray, hats are a perfect go-to.

Start by picking out a cute fedora or floppy hat, and then opt for a simple style like undone waves, a loose bun or a simple twist to ensure looking super stylish without a ton of skill.

Headband and Head Scarf Do’s

We’re not talking about stretchy, non-fabulous headbands you wear when you get your sweat on or when you’re giving your self an at-home facial.

We know there’s some headband haters out there, but given the right fashionable headband or scarf and some good direction, you’ll be looking the epitome of hippie chic. You can find some cute hair bands/scarfs at South Moon Under, Lou Lou or Urban Outfitters.

Flower Crowns

Okay, so these tutorials are more about the creation of the flower crown itself, but with a little DIY flair and some undone, messy waves or a short and sassy pixie, you’ll be looking like a modern day boho flower child.

And if you’ve been wanting to try the flower crown trend, but you’re a little self-conscious of looking like you have a full-blown garden on your head, you’ll love the dainty flower crown tutorial on
