The Countryside Wedding Hair Tutorial You Can Do Yourself

To me, there’s no better locale for an intimate wedding than the countryside. I may be a bit biased, as my mother’s rural farm set the stage for my own nuptials, but think about it… a sunlit field, the sweeping sound of birdsong filling the air around you, rows of guests waiting to witness the exchange of vows beneath an endless blue sky… I’m hard-pressed to think of a more romantic scene.

And one of the best things about a countryside wedding? While, sure, a rustic barn is a gorgeous location for a formal event, the country offers an opportunity to relax a little and literally let your hair down. To show us how to do just that, today Nashville-based hairstylist Leah Hoffman is sharing a look that’s ideal for anyone attending a countryside wedding, whether you’re the bride, guest, or part of the wedding party. Check out the full how-to below, plus a variation:

Part your hair with a deep side part and begin braiding at the top (use the below photos as a guide), taking new sections from the hairline as you work your way down.

Braid to the end and finish it off with a metal hair cuff or elastic. This style looks so cute with a hat!

I’ve seen people wear rings/jewels in their hair and always wondered how they did it! So much simpler than I thought. Thanks for this!

Love the outfits and hair colors – I’d put the cuffs in a bun I think.

Warm Regards,

Can you do a post for pixie hair styles/accessories?

OMG~ 2 girls are so beautiful from their clothes and their hair. I really love it. BTW, the girl who is wearing blue dress has a wonderful hair, it is so suitable for these hot “lazy” days. I will try it …. we are in summer <3

Oh gosh, I cannot stress enough how much I love it! I wish I could recreate this style with my own hair.

These ladies rock! Such killer hair.
