We love boho updos here at CT. They’re cute, simple, and can be done in little time. They tend to feel more laid back so if you’re afraid to look too done up during the day, you have nothing to fear if you create a boho updo.

If you’re looking for the easiest boho updo that can be done in less than five minutes, give this hair tutorial a try.


What you’ll need:

2 small clear elastics
2 regular hair tie (preferably one that matches your hair color)
Spray (optional)

Now follow these steps:

Step 1. Part your hair down the middle. Take a 2 inch section of hair from the top of the head and braid it. Secure with a clear elastic. Repeat on the other side.

Step 2. Gather all of the hair in a low ponytail and secure with a regular hair tie. You can now take the elastics off of the braids.

Step 3. Twist the ponytail and create a bun. Secure it with another hair tie.

Step 4. This step is optional but if you’d like a more effortless look, take out a few strands here and there from the temple area of your face. Spray a bit of hairspray to keep everything in place.
