Is it summer yet? Because I’m ready to bypass spring and pull out my cut off denim and start wearing bohemian-inspired braids. For me the ideal look is part free-spirited and part mis-shapen, a perfect style for laid-back off duty days or even a glamorous event if you know how to work it. Lucky for all of us, I spotted the quintessential braid while perusing a magazine. It’s braided, looped, pinched, and super easy to emulate.

Alexa Chung has a gorgeous natural wave. That’s a great way to be as it creates styling options: you can go straight, or encourage an easy-going natural texture. With her boho-chic vibe, Alexa usually chooses the latter option, as seen in this image of her sporting a loose, shoulder-grazing, layered long bob. The style has softness and movement, with graphic emphasis placed on texture. Perfectly imperfect, this is a great example of her signature look. For the color, soft chocolatey tones keep it bright and sultry, and brings out her great complexion. Get tips for styling similar shapes in the notes.
