Bohemian brides need a boho wedding hairstyle that’s as free-spirited as they are. If your big day can be defined by all things earthy and ethereal, the last thing you want in a bridal ‘do is a stiff, slicked-back bun or tight curls drenched in hairspray. Fortunately, you won’t find any of that here.

From tousled waves to undone updos, these stunning styles are perfect for boho brides. If you wish to wear your hair down, consider rocking cascading curls that are loose and softly textured. If you want your hair out of your face when you hit the dance floor, try a messy bun or thick braid. Bits of florals and foliage are always welcome in boho wedding hairstyles, so feel free to tuck a bloom into your lush curls or pop on a flower crown.

Avoid hairstyles that look too perfect or overly done. The beauty is in the imperfections, so don't be afraid to brush your fingers through the curls to loosen them or untuck a few strands from your updo to frame your face.

The warm, saturated hues in this flower crown are a perfect match for the dry, desert heat. We love the bride's tousled lob for extra face-framing goodness, and those celestial earrings couldn't be more on brand with the boho wedding feel.

Unexpected, Elemental Crowns

While bridal tiaras are typically associated with more glamorous styles, boho brides can still have their crowning moment by incorporating natural elements into their headpiece. This structurally striking piece is a gorgeous finishing touch to the bride’s natural curls.

There's something intrinsically boho about a fishtail braid, and this bride seriously ups the ante with a floral swag that hugs just one side of her head. The muted, powdery tones and addition of succulents and greenery make this look a total bohemian dream.

Hybrid Braid With Daisy Headband

We’re getting serious Rapunzel vibes from this fishtail/crown braid hybrid. The looseness of the bridal braids is quintessential bohemian as is that dainty daisy flower crown.

Relaxed Ponytail

In order to give the typical, sporty ponytail a boho aesthetic, it's best to drop it low for a relaxed spin. Let some rogue tendrils freely fall about your face and even pump up the volume in the back for a bouncy finish. If you're forgoing a veil, consider adding a boho topper to really hit the mark.

A Halo of Pampas Grass

Pampas grass has been a major wedding trend for some time now, and we don’t predict this wispy, wheat-hued detail going anywhere. Besides being a welcome addition to floral displays, pampas grass can also replace a more traditional flower crown with an earthy halo for an exceptionally unique look.

Natural Curls With a Gilded Floral Comb

We love the way this bride wore her natural curls pinned up to the side. Along with serving a showstopping visual, it's a genius way to showcase the rose gold hair comb. Boho brides who are interested in accessorizing with hair combs and pins should look for ones inspired by florals and greenery in order to keep the style natural and wholly bohemian.

Loose Curls Topped With a Hat

Hats are the unexpected hair accessory that’s been trending among brides, thanks to royals and runways alike. A felt field hat—with or without some florals sitting on its brim—is the perfect finishing touch to boho wedding hairstyles, like this bride’s loose curls.

A hat is a bold accessory that you might not want to steal the show at your ceremony. Save it for your reception or just some of the portraits you snap with your partner.

Surprise! Braids are big when it comes to boho wedding hairstyles, and this fishtail crown braid is a spin on the style that’s hard not to love. The halo hair chain also adds a bit of rocker-chic edge to the otherwise soft and feminine look.

You can add a boho vibe to just about any updo by simply lowering the fastening to the nape of the neck and mussing it up a bit for a more relaxed, I-woke-up-like-this look. These Colorado brides beautifully illustrate two options with a slightly mussed, wrapped ponytail and a side-swept, loose braid topped with a dreamy blush rancher hat.

Opting for bohemian styling doesn’t mean you’re limited to neutral hues. This texturized curly ‘do got a major dose of saturated shades, thanks to those brightly colored blooms.

The intentional imperfections of this messy bun give the relaxed look a natural, free-spirited vibe. Unlike with a slicked-back chignon, you won’t have to worry about a few tendrils coming loose on the dance floor.

‘70s Style Waves

Inspired by the 1970s, these softly textured waves are totally hippie chic. To get a similar look, use a large-barrel curling iron and then separate and tousle the curls, brushing through with your fingers to create soft texture and natural movement.

Thickly Braided Undone Updo

We love the mega volume in this braided undone updo. To make a braid look fuller, gently pull apart the strands to give them more width, or you can sprinkle on a little volumizing powder.

With big, beautiful hair like this little accessorizing is needed. Going au naturel with your curly texture is oh so true to the boho mentality, and accentuating it with an understated posy of baby's breath gives a subtle touch of whimsy.

For a flower-less hair accessory that still has plenty of boho charm, hair chains fit the bill—and even offer a bit of edge. They can be extremely versatile too, complementing just about every hair length, texture, and styling choice. Win!

Possibly the best part about boho wedding hairstyles is that they don’t have to be perfect. Take this bride’s braid for instance. It’s made all the more interesting, thanks to its free strands.

While that softly textured ponytail and those long, piece-y bangs sure are stunning, the star of the show here is that leafy bohemian flower crown. All that wild, unrestrained texture gives the whole look an effortless, freshly foraged vibe.

Peekaboo Braid

This lush braid is serious boho goals. We love how the bride accented it with jasmine flowers and traditional jewelry as a nod to her South Asian culture.

  • What makes a hairstyle boho?

    Boho hairstyles tend to be soft, flowing, and earthy—nothing too tight or perfect. Think long waves, loose braids, and face-framing strands. It's also the perfect excuse to weave some flowers, greenery, or other nature-inspired elements into your look.

  • How do you get a boho look with short hair?

    Hair accessories—flowers and flower crowns as well as barrettes, hairpins, hair chains, or even a hat—are a great way to get a boho style on your wedding day. And braids don't need to be super long to be boho. Experiment with how one could work for you.
