Video: Bohemian Holiday Hair Tutorial

For this hair tutorial with the talented Amy Farid, we wanted to do something special for the holidays. We loved the idea of doing a braided up-do and incorporating one of our beautiful headpieces, and Amy came up with something that is not only easy to recreate, but is unique and sure to be a holiday party show-stopper. Watch the video below to learn how to get a beautiful bohemian holiday hairstyle!

Such a pretty boho chic hairstyle! Thank you! :)

Though I noticed that the second braid in the video is a Dutch braid, which is a reversed French braid.

Wow – I love this, not sure if it will work on my hair, it’s not as long..that hair piece is beautiful!

Is this the similar to the braid Bridgette had a few weeks back ?

Hi Eva, it’s similar but not quite the same – however, we will have a tutorial for Brigette’s braid coming soon :)

I left out the part about more music on

You said make the second braid on the opposite side–I watched twice and it looks like it’s on the same side of the head? Am I missing something?

fp julia -December 20, 2012, 1:01PM

Hi Martha, sorry for the confusion! The braids are on opposite sides of her part, and then criss-crossed over the forehead. I’ve added a photo above to help clarify :)

my hair is very thin right now due to some health issues, but i would really love to be able to pull off something like this. any tips for adding volume to very thin hair before braiding?

Ashley -December 20, 2012, 3:11PM

LOVE the hair tutorials! Please keep ’em coming.

luna – try a volumizing conditioner, or if you’re already doing that, i would use surf spray too! i have really thin hair but surf spray gives it a lot more texture and volume. you can also back-comb your hair a bit before braiding.
