Step 3: Take two sections of your hair from both sides at the front and pin them back using a hair ornament.
Step 4: Leave the rest of your hair open and apply hair spray generously so that it stays put.

Get inspired from Vanessa Hudgens’ Coachella-ready style and take advantage of your curls to get this gorgeous boho look.
Step 1: For curly hair, use a leave-in cream formulated to define your curls and control frizz. Spread the cream on your hands and fingers and scrunch it in with your hands instead of pulling your hair straight. This will enhance your curls beautifully.
Step 2: Take a colourful hair woven hair band and slip it on. Make sure that a few strands of your gorgeous curly hair frame your face.
Step 3: Use a clip-on dreamcatcher hair accessory to complete your boho look.

6. Hair Bow Bun
While people generally associate this style with straight hair, it can look incredibly pretty with curly hair as well!
Step 1: Brush your hair well and pull it into a high ponytail.
Step 2: Pull the hair tie only halfway through, so that your hair forms a loop on top of your head. This will leave some your ends out in the front.
Step 3: Split the loop down the middle into two using your hands.
Step 4: Take the extra hair in front (the ends) and pin it back, going from the middle of your loop so that it forms a hair bow!

Milkmaid braids are super cute, girly and perfect for when you want to change up your look.

Step 3: Repeat this process on the other side. Make sure your braids are tight.
