Hair for a boho bridal shoot
One of the things I love most about my job is the people I get to meet. Not only brides and their families on the wedding day but suppliers too.
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of joining a few talented creative for a small intimate bridal portfolio shoot at Herbert Hall Winery.
Together we created a boho bridal look, perfect for any brides wanting a more festival, outdoor vibe for their big day.
For the hair I prepped with salt spray and curled to create a beachy style wave. My models highlighted hair worked perfectly with the curls , showcasing the different tones and textures within her hair.
It’s really important that brides consider their hair colour for their wedding hair choices. Lots of images you find online may be of blonde, multi tonal hair as often this is the colour that will show off the detail and intricacy of a style. Sometimes hair that is one colour, brown for example, can mean that detail can be lost. When searching for your own wedding hair inspiration try and find something that is created on a hair colour similar to that of your own. This way, it means that you can see a more true reflection of what the same style might look like in your own hair.
To give a relaxed boho vibe to the style I added lots of texture and height by twisting and wrapping the hair. This complimented the flower crown that we later added and meant that the second hair piece, a vine from LORNA TIARA could weave amongst the folds of the hair.
I also added braiding in a variety of forms. With a style like this it’s fun to experiment with various patterns within the hair. Again, this not only shows off the various colours, but really personalises a style for a bride. No two brides are the same and no two hairstyles I create are exactly the same either.
