Flowers for hair: fabulous floral accessories

by Charlotte.Barnes on April 26, 2012

Using fresh flowers in your hair has always been popular and there are a number of ways you can achieve the look. You could do something as simple as tucking a flower into a bun or you could create your very own hair band out of fresh flowers.

Take a look at the images below for inspiration.

Natural look

Flowers and foliage have been attached to this slide and added to an elegant up do. This picture was taken by Wren and Field Photography at a wedding, but the slide would work equally as well at garden party. Flowers by Love n Fresh.

Elegant solution

This elegant and simple look can be achieved with a fresh white flower attached to a small net and then tucked into a nice up do. This shot by Caro Hutchings is also from a wedding, but flowers can be used as hair accessories whenever you want. They work particularly well at parties, BBQs and trips to the seaside.

Make a statement

This stunning headpiece of flowers would look great with any simple dress. The colours can easily be mixed and matched, but these pale tones of peach and cream give a natural, slightly vintage look. Photography by Andrea and Marcus.

Wedding hair flowers

Wedding flowers often take a lot of agonising over. The perfect colours and designs are so important, but a lovely touch to any wedding is a hair flower. Try matching the flowers of the bride and bridesmaids for a really lovely look. Image by Charlotte Knee.

Flowers for kids

Another of Charlotte Knee’s images is particularly inspiring. You don’t have to be an adult to work the trend of flowers in fashion. Children look wonderful with little flowers in their hair.

Simple roses

This photo by Tatum Reid shows another elegant way of using flowers in a hairstyle. These little roses have been tucked into this vintage up do (by stylist Flamingo Amy) for a bit of added interest to the look.

Exotic flowers

This stunning hairstyle has been accented with a large flower and secured with hair grips. The striking curls and shapes are matched perfectly with such an exotic flower. Photo by Andi Sapey with hair by Flamingo Amy.

Colour match

These beautiful blue flowers have been attached to a hair comb by Love n Fresh for a really beautiful look that would look wonderful with a blue dress.
