Boho brides need a 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 wedding ‘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 floral and foliage are always welcome in boho wedding hair looks, so feel 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 your curls to loosen them or untuck a few strands from your updo to frame your face.

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 this bride’s natural curls.
Braided Updo with a Twine and Floral Crown
Don’t make the mistake of thinking you have to wear your hair loose and flowing over your shoulders for it to be boho.

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 serve as a boho hair accessory, as proven by this unique look that replaces a more traditional flower crown with a halo of the earthy material.
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 hair, like this bride’s loose curls.
Save the hat for your reception or just some of the portraits you snap with your partner. A hat is a bold accessory that you might not want to steal the show at your ceremony!
