Flowing hippie hair at the height of the hippie movement was characterized by long hair with a part right down the middle of the scalp.
Flowing tresses cascaded down past the shoulders onto the wearer's natural texture, whether it was bone straight or undulating into beautiful wave patterns.

Hippie Hair is sometimes referred to as Wild Child hair.
Over the years the wild child/hippie hair look has been adopted by a wide range of celebrities like Juliette Lewis, models and fashionistas.
Flowing Hippie Hair - How to create the look
Whether you decide to start with newly cleansed tresses or day old strands, you will need the proper styling products and hot irons to get the modern Hippie Hair look.
Follow the tips below on damp, towel blotted strands:
1. Detangle strands using a
wide tooth comb and separate tresses into 2-3 inch sections.
8. Use a
medium barrel iron and run it through the hair in a vertical
direction trying to keep the hair straight. Be careful not to
bevel the ends as you
iron. The goal is to create a natural bend.
Hippie Waves Au Natural
If you want to skip the hot tools and create au natural wavy styles you can opt for braiding your damp tresses. Depending on the number and tightness of the ultimate waves will determine the placement of your braids.
Use a wide tooth comb to section hair according to desired braid placement. Braid hair and tie off with hair friendly elastics. Allow hair to air dry and then release the hair from the braids when it's completely dry.
Deploy fingers to tousle and arrange the waves in your desired style.
Add Or Subtract A Range Of Fringes
To alter the traditional hippie center parted hairstyle consider adding side-swept or blunt cut bangs. If you don't like the center part, consider trying out a variety of side or off-center versions.
