In this post, we share our tips on how to work the bohemian look into your wedding day hair style. So, what is the boho look? Boho hair is all about that relaxed, natural look; natural waves, messy up-dos, and loosely woven plaits are all perfect examples of boho hairstyles.
Brides defines the Boho look that is very on point this season: “It’s all about soft waves, loose updos and pretty plaits, embellished with ethereal bridal accessories. These fresh styles capture the romantic spirit of the most special day of your life.”
If you had to pick one accessory when it comes to styling your hair as a boho bride: pick flowers. The floral hair trend is a popular bridal beauty look right now and many brides-to-be embrace bold floral crowns, delicate floral pins and single blooms.
When considering which style would work best for you, consider the season in which you are getting married and reflect on the kinds of flowers that are in bloom during this time. In the spring and summertime, you have many different kinds of flowers to choose from; consider what will work best with your colour scheme, personal bridal style and overall beauty look. Autumn offers some of the most gorgeous coloured flowers; burnt oranges, vivid reds, delicate blushes and wine purples. If you are planning on getting married in winter then a floral crown, styled from richly-coloured berries and rustic foliage can work beautifully.
Fresh, real, seasonal flowers are the quintessential bohemian accessory – contact your local florist for advice on which flowers to go for, for your wedding theme that reflects the season and will flatter your overall look. Fresh flowers work especially well in the spring and summertime.
If you don’t want to use fresh flowers then there are many beautiful and unique floral accessories to be found online that look just as good as the real thing. Bohemian brands such as Free People and Rock N Rose make some gorgeous floral crowns and pins that would be perfect for a wedding. In contrast, you can find many floral hair pieces that are completely unique on Etsy.
Think big picture
The boho look is all about appearing unstyled and naturally pretty, so when styling your wedding day hairstyle, consider how your chosen style will work with the rest of your look. If you want to go for a floral crown, then it may be best to pair this style with some delicate jewellery and a simple gown, without excessive embellishments. When styling your hair, it can be a good idea to have photos of your dress and accessories to hand, so that you can get a clear and accurate picture of how each element will combine to make your overall look.
Boho bridal hair embraces a relaxed style and seasonal flowers; it’s a look that is both romantic and chic, perfect for a stylish bride who wants to feel like herself on her wedding day.
