The bohemian look is still going strong in Hollywood, as modelled here by Nicky Hilton. She was recently papped looking positively angelic at a charity event, wearing soft makeup and long flowing hair. If you like this Seventies-inspired hairstyle, you can get it in a matter of minutes. It works best with medium length or long hair, but ladies with short hair can do a similar version too. These light blonde locks are left to fall over the shoulders showing off the soft movement added to the mid-lengths to ends for shape and style. Braids are added to the top and pulled to the back of the head to complete the over-all look brilliantly.

Get the Look:
1. Start by creating sleek waves in your hair. If your hair is naturally straight, use large hair rollers or a curling wand. If you have natural waves you can leave them as is or polish them up with rollers or a curling wand.

2. Create a centre hair part in the hair and take a small section of hair from the top of the forehead on each side. 3. Working on one section at a time, divide it into two pieces and then twist them around each other like a rope. Pin each finished ‘rope’ at the back of the head with hair pins.

- Instead of roping the hair, braid it.

- For short hair, pin the braids or ropes at the side of the head behind the ear rather than at the back if it’s too short.

- If you don’t do centre parts, do a deep side part and one braid only, pinning it behind the ear.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

Placeholder articles

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.

2. Part the Middle

Placeholder articles

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your nose and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even middle part. A middle part is a great way to make small, round face shapes appear longer and thinner.

3. Use a Blow-dryer and Fingers to Dry Your Hair Off

Placeholder articles

Using your blow-dryer, dry your hair using your fingers, separating the hair and allowing it to dry at the roots first then the mid lengths and then the ends. Making sure the roots are dry first will ensure that your hairstyle does not fall flat.

4. Pin Hair

Placeholder articles

Once your hairstyle is complete, hold your hair into place and then pin your hair into your desired direction.

5. Apply Hairspray

Placeholder articles

To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
