Sexy Waves with a 1970s Vibe

We can add subtle volume at the crown and a lot of texture combined with undone waves to give that hint of edginess for a sexy, flirty hairstyle.

To get this look absolutely right, add a centre parting, no fringe and a hippy headband or flower circlet!

Boho Beach Babe Hairstyles

For the ultimate beach babe look, take sections of your hair, varying in size and wrap around your styling tong, holding for around 3-5 seconds. (Add your hair protection spray first though!)

Once the entire hair has been done, you can keep your waves tight or run your fingers through them for a more tousled look.

Hippy-Chick Curly Hair

bohemian wavy hairstyles, Bury St Edmunds hair salonInspired by the long, carefree hair worn by women during the mid-60s hippie movement, the imperfect curl is one of the hottest looks at the moment.

Transform your curls into relaxed, unravelled waves by brushing them through after styling.

This soft look pairs well with natural skin, brushed eyebrows and bare lips.

Soft, Messy Wavy Hair

bohemian wavy hairstyles, Bury St Edmunds hair salonDuring the late 1960s and early 1970s, festivals such as Woodstock and Glastonbury saw women let their hair flow naturally into tousled barely there waves.

This look is a bit messy and your curl has almost lost its wave.  Wear your hair in a centre parting and you’ll have this look nailed!

If your hair needs a boost, why not add a loose plait.  This will help you retain the curl once you remove the plait.
