  • For starters, try settling your hair. The twists are usually required to be clear even though you are opting for a messy look. If the twists are tangled and not properly set, chances are that one strand or two might slip out causing the whole hair to look bad. This is why the main part of the hair tutorial is to comb and settle down the hair well. Check for tangles and detangle them. It will only help you.
  • When your hair is all settled, now work your way up to section one-third of your hair on one side. This does not need to be perfect. Rough segregation from the entire lot will just do. This segmented lock will form the base look for the bohemian twist.
  • Start by taking two smaller strands out of the segregated lock. Each strand taken should belong from the extreme ends of the lock. Smoothen any unnecessary hair frizz and then simply start by twisting the strands. After one twist, use the French braid technique and pick up some hair from the sides or underneath and then again twist.
  • Continue this till the end and as you go forth with every twist, pick up some lock from the two ends and soon you will be left with an awesome bohemian twist. Secure the one side with a tie or incorporate it into any other hairstyle that you wish to.
  • The same can be done with the crown of the head where the front section of the hair is segregated and then twisted to form a milkmaid twist. There can be more than one bohemian twist based on your hairdo idea and skill.
    Secure the look tightly using bobby pins to avoid unnecessary slip out of locks.
