The bohemian themed wedding is trending big time again this spring and summer and for good reason. It conjures up feelings of nostalgia for the flower power days of the 1960s and 70s; just with some extra added beauty and whimsy. Think of your hippie, gypsy, earth girl, dreamily spinning barefoot in a pasture and wearing a flower crown. You get the drift… freedom to express yourself while evoking the beauty of nature: minimal fuss and maximise the love!
When it comes to your hairstyle for your boho wedding, you can basically try anything you like, as long as it’s loose, wild and free. Envision effortlessly tousled curls, chunky plaits or messy buns with stray tendrils of curls falling forward. Don’t forget your human hair extensions for added voluminosity and drama.
To create a romantic, ethereal look, twist your hair into soft braids. You could feature braids that are small and thin around the temple that serve to delicately frame your face. Alternatively, try a textured fishtail braid or a thick french side braid. Consider a loose up do with wispy face framing tendrils. Try a low loose bun, side chignon or a side pony. For hair down, long, loose and wavy curls are effortlessly feminine and carefree. If you’re torn between an up or down do, try half up in a braid, with the rest in waves tumbling gently around your shoulders.
You can leave your hair looking naturally beautiful as is, or adorn it, by weaving delicate flowers throughout, a gorgeous embellished headpiece or a flower crown atop your hair. Clothe yourself in a free flowing vintage dress and paint your lips with a bold red lipstick for a modern touch. Hold the ceremony outside somewhere under the moon with moss, a swing and flowing water nearby. Decorate with candles, oversized bunches of flowers, dream catchers, animal skulls and furniture fashioned from and inspired by natural elements. Shoes optional. Music classical. Event unforgettable.
