When the temperatures rise, there is nothing better than a chic boho braid to keep cool! This season, we are even more excited to incorporate one of our favorite 2017 trends into our boho braids, hair rings! These chic hair accessories shimmer and shine in the summer sun and we just had to try the look for ourselves. Check out our braid tutorial in the steps below to create your own boho braid using celestial hair rings!
Step 1 & 2
1) Start with hair down and loose in a center part. Hair can be straight, wavy or curly depending on your preference. Part hair 1″ back from the hairline along the center part and then diagonally back towards the top of the ear. Clip hair that is not being braided from underneath so it is out of the way.
2) Dutch braid (basically an inside out French braid) hair away from the center part, down towards the top of the ear. Finish braiding to the ends of the hair and secure with a clear elastic.
Step 3 & 4
3) Remove the clip from underneath the hair and use bobby pins to secure the braid over the hair toward the back of the head.
4) Pull out some wispy pieces along the hairline and loosen the braid for a boho look. Slightly bend star rings to open and place along the braid, tightening to close the rings. Finish with hairspray or surf spray as necessary.
We love how the hair rings elevate this cute braid into something totally trendy and special. Shop for hair rings and some of our favorite hair accessories below. What summer hair styles are you excited to try? Let us know in the comments!
