We talk to Laura Reader from Sparkles Hair & Beauty in Abbotsham, Devon

We talk to Laura Reader from Sparkles Hair & Beauty in Abbotsham, Devon: Image 1 Laura Reader from Sparkles Hair & Beauty located in Abbotsham, North Devon, reveals why boho-style hairstyles are fashionable for late-summer weddings, and how to achieve them. She tells us, "Bohemian hairstyles are my go-to look for summer brides. They can incorporate natural-looking loose curls for long-haired locks that can be dressed with colourful fresh flowers - perfect for those wanting something that's inspired by nature for a seasonal summer celebration.

One of my favourite boho-inspired styles is the romantic fishtail bun that's easy to achieve using my step-by-step guide:

*Start by sectioning the hair and curling each piece using the Diva Professional Styling Intelligent Heat Argan Hair Wand that's great for achieving a natural curl (£40.50, www.amazon.co.uk).

*Pin the curls with grips to set them and then use Maria Nila Style & Finishing Spray to make sure that the curls hold (£21.99, www.sallybeauty.co.uk).

*Next, remove the grips and let your hair fall into a cascade of curls. Part the front two sections from the back of the ears and leave them until the end.

*Backcomb at the crown to add a bit of volume.

*At the back, take two large sections beside each other and pull a thin strand from the outside of the left side. Cross this piece into the centre of the two sections and then take a small section from the outside of the right-side and cross this in the centre. Repeat the process down the length of the hair, making sure you take the thin sections as you continue, securing it with a hair elastic (if it's easier, you might want one of your bridesmaids or mum to help you with this part).

*Stretch these plaits out to give them more texture before pinning them up into a bun.

*With the two remaining front sections left from earlier, twist each one back and pin them above the bun to allow more movement.

*Pull out some pieces at the front, so that the style looks looser and softer.

*Finally, add gypsophila dotted in the fishtail plait. You can also add pink daisies which look so pretty and summery, and don't forget to use the finishing spray to set the look in place."
