If you’re getting married in the spring like so many of us, your mind has probably started to turn to wedding day beauty. Last week we featured a gorgeous vintage-inspired look that’s sexy and classic, all in one. This week, take a look at a more free-spirited look, reminiscent both of the 60s hippie-chic flower child and Shakespeare’s Titania, Queen of the Fairies.
Flowers in hair can add an organic element to an otherwise overly planned day. If you’re looking for a simple nod to nature, tuck a few blossoms into a slightly messy, yet “done” ‘do. What does that even mean? Make sure your hair has a bit of structure–an updo, loose bun, half-up Brigitte Bardot ‘do, etc. Pop a few pastel buds in your hair, sticking to various shades of a singular color, and using texture to add depth. This means keep the color similar among all of the flowers in your tresses, but vary shades and textures of petals.
Going for a bit more of a free-spirited look? Try a floral crown, the look I swear little woodland elves wear in private. Loose curls complement this look beautifully, or try a loose low bun. You can get as wild as you like here, varying colors, types of flowers, textures, sizes, etc. Need help in the DIY? Check out this tutorial.
Going for a more sophisticated, tight, pulled-together look? Pick out a couple blossoms of the same general shade, flower, and texture and stick the stems into a wide, high bun, french twist, low bun, or even behind the ear on those Veronica Lake curls or a traditional pinup look.
