Just because Coachella is over doesn't mean you can't keep the Bohemian-chic vibe going!

The warmer weather happily ushers in the season of weekend festivals! From music to flea markets, it's time to take off the winter hats and show our crowns some much needed love!

We are suckers for a chic and creative braid. The possibilities are endless, so why not try something new? A textured fishtail braid against a backdrop of soft boho waves? Easygoing style doesn't get much better!

A recommended tool for this look is the CHI 44 Iron Guard Style & Stay Spray ($16). Apply a light mist to 90% dry or completely dry hair in desired sections prior to thermal styling for shine, hold, and protection.  

Here's how to get this look:

- Start off by creating an off-center part on your desired side, and then divide a two-inch section at the front bang area.

- Next, begin to make a fishtail braid with the sectioned hair, leaving out the ends.

- Then be sure to secure the braid with a clear mini elastic band.

- Now mist braid with CHI Style & Stay Spray for hold.

- Finish by holding the end of the braid in one hand, all while pushing up with the other to loosen and expand. Continue this until you reach the top of the braid.
