1. The Boho Braid—This half-up mix of French braids and flowing locks may have been created for the runway by stylist James Pecis for Moroccanoil, but its relaxed beauty effortlessly transitions to a natural, organic wedding hairstyle. Start by spraying hair with a touchable hairspray that works well with heat, then blow-dry away from the face and with an upward motion to give the hair some lift. Next, slightly backcomb at the top of the head, teasing a bit more along the front of the hairline, and add more hairspray. Create two French braids on each side of the head, starting at the temples. Angle the braids toward the middle-back of the head, and continue braiding until they meet. Secure braids together, then let the rest of the hair cascade freely. Finish by adding a texturing spray to the unbraided hair.
