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.

In order to give the typical, sporty ponytail a boho aesthetic, it's best to keep it low and loose for a relaxed spin. Let some rogue tendrils freely fall about your face and even add a statement topper if you so wish

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.

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!
