Hippie Wedding Hairstyles – You can have a hippie wedding to save money or to show the world that you’ve always been a rebel. Either way, a boho wedding is much more fun than an uptight, yawning, traditional ceremony. So, here are some tips on hairstyles from the 1960s and 1970s that will flash your long hair or short hair into a grooving vintage look… and turn you into an angel bride from bohemian heaven.
I don’t care how old you are, it’s never too late to reinvent your inner bohemian. And, as a former hippie myself, I must insist that you are never too old to carry this off. Women who are over 40, 50 or 60 (like me) just need to keep things toned down and to use the good taste they’ve acquired over the last several decades. Yes, you must be a fashionable hippie… not a Walmart hippie.
There are lots of ways to save money on a wedding. One way is to do your own hair or have your daughter do it for you. Fortunately, hippies learned to live on a shoestring, so hippie hair is always easy to style. You just need to let your hair go natural. Then, you can add flowers and other adornments to accentuate your natural beauty. Once you start experimenting, you’ll find the right hairstyle to complement your skin, your body type, and your wedding “gown”… even if your wedding gown is a retro pantsuit from the 70’s or a Mexican wedding dress from a thrift store.
As a modern-day Bohemian Gypsy Princess, your hair should look messy and sexy, not staid and sprayed. Hey, the best hippie hairstyle for you, my friend, depends on the natural state of your hair. If it’s curly, keep it curly. If it’s straight, keep it straight. If it’s wavy, wave back. For a great hippie look, you want to work with the hair that Mother Nature gave you and let it do its own thing.
