Using a bobby pin, usually a color that blends easily with your hair (or not if you want to go for a crazier, more Harajuku-esque style), and fasten both braids in the center.
Now make one inch sections below your first set of braids on each side. Repeat the first set of braids we did (steps 4 and 5!) Make sure the braid is directly under your last braids.
Once both sides are braided bring hair around to the middle back of your head and cross them over each other.
Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color (or not), fasten both braids.
Once everything is fastened adjust your curls on the bottom half and style using a texture spray. (You don’t have to if you prefer to not use a lot of chemicals on your hair, the bobby pins should hold it fine at this point.)
You can finish off waves and look with a weightless protectant at this point as well, to make sure the waves keep their hold all day.
Make any further styling adjustments to your look as needed. and Enjoy an easy DIY half up boho braided up-do.
