8 Start slideshow

Braids can turn an everyday style into a covetable do in just a few minutes, as long as you know how to achieve your look. Whether you want a fishtail braid or a few smaller, face-framing side braids you can convey an edgy or boho chic style for any occasion. For our Bohemian Beaut editorial, the whimsical clothing makes model Matta look as if shes ready to take on a weekend music festival, with multiple braid options to match.

Hairstylist Sean Gallagher of Ric Pipino salon suggests trying the style on dirty hair, or even better hair that is dirty with product. He likes to prep the hair with a good amount of product before beginning the braid for a long-lasting hold. Try a thickening spray or surf spray to give your hair some texture before you begin your braid, so your hair isnt slick with natural oil yet has a sticky texture from product. Gallagher suggests using Wellas Ocean Spritz Beach Spray for some added roughness. – Rachel Adler
