You don’t to be a native Hawaiian or hippie chick to embrace the trend of flowers in your hair. I promise. Although I rarely wear hair accessories myself, during spring and summer I’ll sport a floral headband, bobby pin or hair tie in honor of the beautiful weather. Whether you’re nervous about trying this trend or are already a pro, I’ve put together some of my favorite looks incorporating flowers.
A Floral Bun
Low buns are classically chic, but can sometimes come off as boring. To spruce up a basic bun, add a cluster of large flowers in the form of hair pins/clips. I suggest pinning them in or looking for a hair tie with flowers sewn on. This look isn’t too drastic and is perfect for a wedding or similar dressy occasion.
I personally love the headband/turban trend, but not everyone can pull it off. Those with long hair hair look best wearing floral headbands. Something about this says “relaxed summer style” and makes me want to run through a field of flowers. Ok well maybe not run, but walk quickly. And if you’re not brave enough to wear a floral crown (see below), a headband is a more delicate option.
Ever since I become enamored with Lana Del Rey I’ve had a thing for floral crowns. It’s hard to find occasions that are appropriate to wear one to, but who cares! They make me feel instantly pretty and will definitely draw attention, so this one is for the bold.
Flower Over the Ear
This look is great for those who just want a small floral accent. This trend has been around forever (that’s Jane Birkin rocking the look above) and all it takes is a cute flower bobby pin or hairclip. Or get a flower with a bit of a stem and it might just stay out without any pins!
What’s your favorite way to wear flowers in your hair?
