With all the festivals and outdoor activities that go on during the summer here in Bristol, our salon is ready for all of the coming trends. One timeless hair trend that is becoming extra popular this year is adding flower accessories to the hair. Floral headbands, bohemian flower crowns, and strong floral accents were all over the runways this spring. What better way to welcome the warm weather and add a romantic factor to your look than to embrace flowers as an accessory? Here are four of the top hottest ways to accessorise with flowers this summer.
1. Sprinkled throughout.
Nothing can top the enchanting, carefree vibe of curly or wavy hair with dainty little flowers sprinkled throughout. It’s like you just rolled across a field of dreamy daisies and you are so magical that instead of getting covered in dirt and grass you got covered in perfectly placed flowers. This look would be perfect on all hair lengths, whether you have very long hair or a short pixie cut. Get some sprigs of Baby’s Breath flowers and pin them strategically throughout your hair with hair grips. Unless your hair is naturally curly or wavy, you may want to texturize it with a sea salt spray or curling iron so that the pins are less visible. Alternatively, you could put your hair in an updo and add some small flower clips (like these ones from Accessorize – £6) throughout.
2. Wear a crown.
For a super easy throw-on-and-go look, wear a flower crown (or a partial flower crown). This idea is extra hot on the runways and a highly trending for festivals. A floral piece like this is such a great way to dress up your hair if you want to just wear it down or natural. Opt for a large colourful crown if you want to make a fun statement, or go for a subtler crown for a whimsical, romantic look.
It would be really fun to custom make your own, but here are some pretty store-bought hair crowns we’ve found:
3. Flower Clusters
Trending with Dolce and Gabbana on the runways this spring were chunky clusters of Venetian red flowers tucked into the sides of classic chignons. Choose three or four natural looking flowers and pin them into a cluster formation on the side of a simple updo style. You could buy fake flowers from a craft shop and make your own flower pins, or you could buy pre-made ones (like these from Claire’s, £4). If you can get your hands on some real roses or carnations, even better. This hairstyle would be perfect for a romantic summer dinner date!
4. Go Edgy
For an intriguing twist on the ultra-feminine floral look, go for flower themed accessories made from metal or synthetic leather fabric. While not quite as dainty as traditional flowers, these adornments make an extra bold statement that is just as enchanting.
