Boho Hair Trends Are Dominating Summer 2024—Here Are the 8 Best Styles to Try


There have been so many incredible hair trends in 2024 already, but one is about to blow all of the others out of the water for summer: boho hair. The resurgence of ‘70s fashion on the high street means that its influence on our beauty routines wasn’t going to be far behind, and the emerging styles are undeniably alluring. From long layered cuts with sweeping fringes and loose braids to the choppy textured shag hairstyle or the ‘70s bob, the joy of the boho trend lies in its effortless nature.

“Boho hair trends are characterised by soft, flowing, and earthy look and typically include long waves, loose braids, and face-framing strands,” explains Edward James, hair stylist and founder of Edward James Salons and The Hair Consult. “The style embraces a natural, undone aesthetic and can include elements inspired by nature, such as flowers or greenery woven into the hair.”

However, the boho hair trends of 2024 are less twee than their predecessors and feel both contemporary and wearable. James points to tousled braids, textured waves, curtain bangs and relaxed updos as being some of the dominating boho styles of the year so far, with celebrities like Vanessa Hudgens, Sienna Miller and Zoe Kravitz serving up bohemian inspiration with their own effortlessly undone hairstyles.

Think of boho hair trends and long, layered cuts are likely one of the first looks that spring to mind. “Adding textured layered to long hair, especially long, layers with textured waves, give a really carefree, voluminous look,” says James. Halle Berry’s style is the perfect example of achieving that beautiful, bohemian feel.

“Pairing layers with curtain bangs gives a chic, effortless look that blends boho with a modern edge,” explains James. And there’s no denying it’s a match made in heaven as Sabrina Carpenter’s soft waves and flicked-out fringe prove.

“Integrate metallic clips, pastel-coloured pins, or minimalist hair jewellery to give a contemporary update to traditional boho floral accessories,” says James. These pearl-adorned gold slides are so fun.
