If you need a hairstyle that's as free-spirited as you are, it's not going to be slicked-back or perfectly in place. Your ethereal vibe will likely match best with loose updos, beach-blown waves and messy-chic braids. To help you find the perfect 'do, we rounded up 47 boho wedding hairstyles that are effortlessly gorgeous. Plus, we also rounded up boho wedding guest hairstyles that will match the event's aesthetic perfectly.

Boho hairstyles can be easily dressed up or down depending on the formality of the wedding and the outfit you're wearing. For example, a sparkly hair accessory (like a hair comb or a tiara) can lend sophisticated vibes to a messy fishtail braid, or a formal updo can be loosened up with a flower crown or individual blooms for a more natural look. Get inspired by our favorite bohemian wedding hairstyles for to-be-weds, wedding party members and wedding guests, below:
