Step 1:

Take the hair on the back of your head and gently tease from mid-length to scalp.  If you already have thick hair and don’t require any extra volume, skip this step entirely.

Boho Up - How to put on the headbandStep 2:

After your hair has been combed out, place your headband on the top of your head (as if you were wearing a crown).  Secure your headband with 2 bobby pins on each side of your head to prevent the headband from sliding while you create this masterpiece.

**Tip** – For those of you that have trouble keeping your headbands in your hair, spray  hairspray on the inside of the headband to create extra friction, and keep the band from slipping.

 

Boho Up - Tucking in your hairStep 3:

Start on one side of your head by taking a small section of hair, roll the piece of hair up to the headband and tuck it into the top of the headband.  Continue this step until you get to the other side of your head and all of your hair is neatly tucked into the headband.

**Tip** – If you have long hair or really thick hair, you might want to add a couple bobby pins to the end result to hold your hair in place.

The boho image is meant to look effortless, so don’t worry if your up-do isn’t perfect.  Loose pieces of hair hanging down from your up-do will only add character to the overall style.
