A girl needs a change sometimes. No girl deserves to be seen in the same traditional hairstyles at all times. If you nodded to my assertion, these 17 gorgeous Boho knotless braids are the change you’re looking for.
They’re unique kinds of braids that will flash out your true beauty. The best part is that it can be styled in numerous ways and at the length of your desire.
Before we wander off, let’s level the ground for everyone!
What are Knotless Braids?
Knotless braids are those that are installed without using knots at the scalp. The aim is to create natural-looking braids and prevent damage to the scalp.
What are Boho Braids?
Boho is a short form for “Bohemian.” In terms of the braids, boho refers to a type of braids that embrace unconventional and artistic looks associated with bohemian culture.
Boho knotless braids, therefore, mean hairstyle that involves weaving the hair together with extensions from the scalp without using knots and whose braids are developed into a beautiful free-spirited, and low-maintenance style.
How to Do Knotless Braids?
Here are the steps that must be followed to braid the knotless:
· Wash and dry your hair
· Section the hair into large divisions and divide the large ones into small boxes
· Braid the natural hair to some length before you braid it together with extensions
Boho Knotless Braids
1. Short Boho Braids
Let’s start with short boho knotless braids. As you might have guessed, these are braids that only extend to at least the shoulders.
Just to be clear, these braids are not only for those who have short natural hair. But if you’ve got short natural hair you can go for these braids. Of course, you need to make sure that you braid using small boxes.
You can finish the look with some beads and ribbons. Beads can be added at the root of the braid while ribbons can be pinned away from the roots.
2. Large Knotless Boho Braids
If the short knotless boho braids are not for you, you should go for the large knotless braids. These involve weaving the braids from the large box sections of your hair which translates into some jumbo braids.
In most cases, large knotless braids tend to be very long and give that epic aesthetics. However, it doesn’t mean you can’t have large knotless boho braids that are short.
It is worth mentioning that there are some large knotless that are super-large to the extent that only countable braids fill the head. If you’ve got a small head, only 12 jumbo braids will be enough.
3. Medium Boho Braids
The other stunning boho knotless braids are the medium boho braids. These are braids that may be medium in both the size and the length.
They’re in between the large braids and the tiny braids. For those who don’t want jumbo or tiny braids, the medium boho braids are ideal.
Just like any other kind on this list, you can wear medium boho braids of any color. My favorites are the black, blonde, blue, and burgundy medium boho braids.
4. Blonde Boho Braids
Blonde Boho knotless braids are the next epic kind of braids. They offer both elegance and a fresh look.
There are some misconceptions that blonde is for white people only. However, that’s all it is –a misconception. People of any color and origin can wear and look good in blonde braids.
Whether you’re a chocolate-black girl or you’re a light-skinned girl, blonde is a great option for you. Feel free to choose the size and length you want and style it the way you like.
5. Small Knotless
If you’re looking for braids that take a long time without degrading, the small knotless Boho braids are the ones. FYI: these are super tiny braids woven from tiny box sections on the scalp.
The main setback is that they require a lot of hair or extensions and take a long time for the hair stylist to finish braiding. However, the benefits outweigh the disadvantages.
In addition to lasting the longest time before they degrade, small knotless Boho braids are genuinely beautiful and can be styled into a ponytail, pigtails, and many more.
6. Knotless Braids with Color
We can’t talk about Boho knotless braids without talking about braids with color. These are types of braids in different colors than black.
The most common color is blonde. Let me reiterate that blonde knotless Boho braids suit everyone despite your skin tone, and you can have them in the size and length you desire.
If you’ve had enough of blonde, you can choose a mixture of blonde and white. Or you can try some of the colors discussed below.
7. Red Knotless Braids
The other type of colorful braid that you can try is the red knotless braid. The red color offers a different look to the one people are used to.
You can have control over the size and length. However, for this color, I particularly like them in jumbo rather than in small sizes.
To achieve the red color, you can buy red hair or you can buy black synthetic hair and dye it. Some like it when they’re mixed with black braids or when the same braid consists of different colors.
8. Ombre Knotless Braids
Ombre knotless braids combine the trendy ombre color gradient with the knotless braiding technique. The result is such a stylish and eye-catching hairstyle.
Again, knotless braids offer a natural look with less tension at the roots and the Boho aims at the wavy and curly look. The best part is that they look stunning at any appropriate length and size.
With the ombre effect, the hair transitions from one color at the roots to another at the tips. This, without a doubt, creates a visually appealing and dynamic appearance.
9. Brown Knotless Braids
Let’s say ombre, red, and blonde are not your cup of tea. You can still shine in colorful braids by braiding in brown knotless Boho braids.
Especially if brown is your favorite color, you’ll have fun in these braids. Like blonde, brown knotless braids can be small, medium, or large.
You’ll need to select the small ones if you want braids that last long without wearing out. Otherwise, if you need temporary knotless braids, you may just go for a Boho knotless wig.
10. Smedium Knotless Boho Braids
Sometimes you may want braids that aren’t too small or too medium. Those are what we call smedium.
As we’ve seen above, wearing small knotless braids is tedious. For those who don’t want to speak the whole at the hairstylist, smedium knotless braids are the right choice.
If you’re into blonde, you can select smedium braids and ask your stylist to install boho knotless braids. I always insist on expert hairstylists because they have a huge bearing on how long the braids will last or how cute they’ll look.
11. Butterfly Knotless Braids
These are a charming and fascinating variation of the classic knotless braiding technique. In this style, the braids are crafted to resemble the delicate and graceful wings of a butterfly.
The hair is skillfully braided in a way that creates a wing-like pattern with sections fanning out to mimic the shape of butterfly wings. Again, if you need a change in terms of your hairstyle, the butterfly knotless braids are perfect.
12. Knotless Soft Locs
Knotless Soft Locs boho is a type of hairstyle that incorporates soft natural-looking locs with a bohemian or boho style. If you’re looking for a low-maintenance, yet stylish, hairstyle, this is the perfect choice.
Just to be clear, boho locs are those with curls throughout the locs. You can add some beads and other pieces of jewelry to add more aesthetic to the locs.
13. Knotless with Curly Ends/ Goddess Braids
I wanted to include this because they’re mostly mistaken with the boho braids. The correct term for knotless with curly ends is Goddess braids.
Unlike the boho, the Goddess braids consist of curly from the middle to the end. Despite the slight difference, these two kinds of braids are super cute and elegant.
You can choose any color for goddess braids. However, if you ask me, I would recommend sticking to black or blonde. Or go for bright color hair if you’re a baddie girl.
14. Criss Cross Knotless Braids
The other jaw-dropping Boho knotless braids are the crisscross knotless braids. As the name suggests, these are kinds of braids that consist of zigzag of braids from the forehead to the center of the head.
To achieve the criss-cross effect, if you’re a hairstylist, you’ll need to alternate the direction of the braids as you work your way down each section. For example, if you start by braiding a section towards the right, the next section should be braided towards the left, and so on.
15. Boho Braids Natural Hair
If you’re like me, you’re wondering whether it’s possible to get Boho braids of natural hair. The answer is yes. It’s totally possible to braid Boho braids from natural hair.
Of course, the first thing is that you need to have some long hair. Any skillful hairstylist will be able to braid the natural hair into some beautiful Boho braids.
If you’re interested in colorful braids made from natural hair, you’ll need to dye your hair the color you want. You can go blonde or red dye.
16. Boho Braids Kids
The Boho braids for kids are not a different kind. The main difference is in the number of decorations that are added.
In most cases, kids’ Bodo braids include some colorful ribbons and beads. Of course, you can also install transparent beads at the end of the beads.
17. Boho knotless braids wig
If you don’t have enough money or time to have the knotless braids installed, you can just purchase a Boho knotless wig. This you’ll wear only when you want to and you’ll be taking it off whenever you want.
