Best Human Hair to Use for Boho Bob Knotless Braids 

How to Do Boho Bob Knotless Braids

You can either do boho bob braids on the traditional box braids (these have a knot) or the more popular knotless braids

For this tutorial, we’ll use the knotless braiding method.

Start by parting clean, straightened, product-free hair into three big sections. Ideally, you should have two equal sections at the front and one big section at the back.

Using a rat tail comb, carve out five rows in each of the front sections and seven rows in the back section. 

PS: Make sure the rows in the front line up with the rows in the back above the ears. This way, you won’t have a hectic time when braiding.

Apply a generous amount of shine n jam on the horizontal lines. Not only does it help with sleeking down the roots of your hair, but also getting a proper hold.

Next, pre-part the sections in each row before you start braiding to achieve a brick layered pattern. This gives your braids a neat and organized final appearance.

To do this, you’ll want to make sure that your vertical parts fall in the middle of the section below it so that your braids fall between each other. 

It’s now time to do the bohemian bob braids using the knotless technique.

Start by dividing each individual section into three parts. Braid that section about a quarter an inch and then gradually start feeding in the pre-stretched braiding hair. Three pieces should be enough.

Proceed to feed in your water wave or deep twist hair once you have a decent length braid formed. Separate the longer end and braid the shorter blunt end of the human hair.

You’ll want to add three to four pieces of human hair to each braid. One at the base, two in the middle, and one at the end.

PS: When you’re adding a piece of human hair at the base, you want to make sure that you add the shorter blunt end facing upwards so that the longer curlier end falls flat and forward.

Before you reach the length where you want your braid to stop, add another piece of human hair. Braid that one all the way down without separating the longer end.

You’ll then use a small piece of the braiding hair to make a knot at the length where you want your braid to stop. Finish by sealing the knot using some heat to prevent it from unraveling.

To achieve uniformly curly ends, cut off that extra braiding hair at the end of the braid. From there, cut off those blunt pieces of human hair that are sticking out of the braid.

Do this repeatedly until you’re done.

At this point, your braids are ready to be cut into a bob. But before that, you’ll want to spray the ends with water to help detangle the hair.

Use your fingers to feel all the knots to make sure the cut is made below them. If you cut above any of the knots, then the braid will inevitably unravel.


PS: Keep going in and cutting any extra long pieces to ensure the hair is on the same length all round. If you risk cutting your natural hair at the back by going shorter, then you can leave it a little long. The difference will be hardly noticeable.

The final step involves applying mousse all over the head and laying the edges.

How to Do Boho Bob Knotless Braids (Using 100% Human Hair)

If you prefer to do boho bob knotless braids without synthetic hair, refer to the video below.

For this, you’ll need at least 3 packs of 100% curly human hair (20-inch). 

For the most part, the process is more or less the same. The only difference is how you feed in the human hair. Instead of picking up the hair at the center, you’ll want to add it in towards the top where the blunt ends are. You’ll need around three pieces to do the knotless braid part.

Pay close attention to how you’re adding in the pieces. Make sure your blunt ends are being added in the same direction. This way, you’ll have a good length of the human hair left to braid all the way down.

How to Do Boho Bob Knotless Braids Using the Crochet Method

Here, the box braids are done first. Once the braiding hair is intact, the curly hair pieces are then crocheted in until the entire braid length is done. 

If you are yet to perfect the feed-in method but still want to rock the boho bob knotless braids, then this technique is for you.

Expert Boho Bob Knotless Braids Tips

  1. Depending on how long you or your client’s hair is, you’ll need to use 30 inch braids, braid it to the desired length up to four inches under where your hair ends, seal the ends then trim as desired.
  2. The secret to getting the perfect boho bob lies in the trimming process.
  3. To make your boho bob voluminous, add more curly hair pieces at the beginning and along the length of the braid.
  4. To get curly ends, seal the braids at the end, leave out about 2 to 3 inches of hair then use curling rods or a thread to curl the ends by dipping them in hot water.
  5. If you want curly human hair ends, braid in the curly human hair to your desired length, seal it then cut off the synthetic hair.
  6. Your desired bob length will be highly dependent on how long your hair is.
  7. If you have long hair but you still want to rock short boho braids, your hair will have to be folded inside the braid.

Boho Bob Braids Maintenance Tips

  1. Wear a silk bonnet or silk scarf to bed at night.
  2. Use a dry shampoo and cotton ball or cloth to clean your scalp if you don’t plan on washing your braids or an apple cider vinegar hair rinse to remove scalp buildup and dandruff.
  3. Apply mousse on your braids to tame flyaways and reduce tangling.
  4. If you used synthetic hair for the curls, use got2b glue to restore the curls.
  5. If you used 100% human hair, use water, a leave in conditioner spray and some curling butter to revive the curls every week.
  6. Finger comb daily.
