Boho hairstyles are very trendy this summer, and they’re a popular wedding look as well. The relaxed, free spirited look gives a chic and comfortable feel to your wedding day. Bohemian hairstyles are perfect for laid back brides who love the boho look. They're also budget friendly because they're often so inexpensive to create. You don't need a professional stylist to create whimsical boho style. You can create your own DIY wedding hairstyle with ease when aiming for the boho look. 

But, bohemian wedding hairstyles can be tricky to achieve if you’ve never tried one before or don’t know where to start. How messy is too messy? How do you look put together but still relaxed? To add flowers or not to add flowers? Never fear. If you love bohemian wedding hair but aren’t sure how to get the look, these 11 tips will show you How to Achieve Dreamy Boho Wedding Hair that will be the perfect touch of whimsy to your bridal style on your big day. 


Before You Start

  1. Keep It Dirty
    The number one rule of boho hair is to keep it dirty. Freshly washed hair is often fine and slippery. Unwashed hair has more texture, which will help you achieve the boho look for your big day.

  2. Add Some Texture
    The next tip for boho bridal hair is to add texture. You can use product in your hair the day before and leave it in (keep it dirty!), or you can add texture spray to give your hair some grit.

  3. Wavy Love
    If you have naturally wavy or curly hair, you were made for boho hairstyles. Don’t straighten your hair. Leave it in all its wavy glory for your boho look.

  4. Cute in Curls
    If you have naturally straight hair, you’ll want to add some styled texture. Use rollers or a curling iron to add messy, uneven waves and curls to your bohemian hairstyle.

Styling Tips

  1. Asymmetrical Style
    Once you begin creating your boho wedding hairstyle, start with an asymmetrical look. This can be a side braid, uneven tendrils around your face or neck, or even a deep side part. You don’t want to look too clean cut when you’re going boho. Pictured: Romantic Side Fishtail Braid

  2. Make it Messy
    Next, make it messy. As you’re styling, don’t tidy up the bumps or flatten the wispy bits that naturally occur. Leave them as-is to embrace the untidy boho style.

  3. Leave it Long
    Another tip is to leave your hair long. Leave it all down with waves and curls for texture, or leave it part down with some braids or a partial bun. The more free-flowing the better.  

  4. Add Some Braids
    Braids are key in boho bridal hairstyles. Whether it’s one loose braid, a crown braid, or tiny braids added for texture, braids just scream “boho.” Pictured: Angelic Bohemian Halo Braid

  5. Loosy-Goosey
    As you’re styling, leave your hair loose. If you’re making braids, don’t pull them tight. If your style is an updo, leave some tendrils for softness. Remember, imperfection is perfection when creating bohemian wedding hairstyles.

Finishing Touches

  1. Flower Power
    Finally, add your finishing touches. Flowers are a beautiful addition to boho hair because they give a hippie, flower child vibe. Weave them in to your braid or updo for a natural touch.  

  2. Wear a Crown
    You can also wear a crown as a finishing touch. Whether it’s a crown braid or a flower crown, a circlet will really top off your dreamy boho wedding hairstyle. Pictured: Beautifully Bohemian DIY Flower Crowns
