The arrival of spring always brings a sense of renewal. Right about now, you're probably swapping out your sweaters and boots for floaty dresses and lightweight jackets. It's also the perfect time to refresh your beauty look with a new hairstyle.

For natural-haired girls, the season begs for braids. The category of braids has grown vastly over the years, and boho braids have been the breakout style that has achieved viral fame.

Do a quick scroll through Instagram and you're bound to see a few different options that will pique your interest. One of the reasons they've become so popular is their versatility.

Arguably the most popular way to wear boho braids, this look is all about length. Flowing from root to tip, the braids often extend beyond the waist for a glamorous look. Though the longer length means more time at the salon, it's ideal for creating several styles.

Versatility and styling ease are two elements that make these braids beloved. Medium-length braids can be transformed into any style, including a messy updo. To keep the look grounded, leave a few braids loose around the face. Not only will it frame your features, but it will give your updo a lived-in feel.
