This summer belongs to the boho bride. With her soft, flowing lace dress, her rustic wildflower bouquet and her bespoke rose gold wedding band, she’s the bride we all want to be. It’s her hair that we’re really obsessed with though; beautifully braided, softly tousled and accessorised to perfection, there’s not so much as a hint of wedding hair about it.
A quick trawl through Pinterest will throw up thousands of bridal braids but if you want to perfectly emulate the spirit of the boho bride you need to follow three simple rules. 1) Keep your braid loose and low – it doesn’t matter if you’re wearing it half up, all up or in one long single braid the key is to avoid that tight, to the scalp look. 2) Build texture into your braid – blow-dry a volumising mousse, a texturising cream or a even a blast of dry shampoo into your hair before you braid it to create guts, body and a rustic look. 3) Go big on the accessories – anything too dainty can look twee when teamed with undone braids. Large vintage fake flowers or sprigs of wildflowers work well, a scattering super-sized art deco broaches can also add a shot of unexpected glamour.Find Bridal Boho Braids Near You
