Flowers are a symbol of beauty and femininity and those are only two of the many reasons we adore floral accents as one of the season’s hottest hair accessories. Check out a few ideas for this sweet hair accessory trend below and don’t forget to check out the GIVEAWAY at the bottom of the post!
“One of my favorites is a crystal flower clip attached to a rubber band made by Lavender Girl ($30)”, says Umberto of Umberto Beverly HIlls Hair Care. “This specific accessory has vintage-like ribbon in bold colors hanging down. You can wrap the ribbon around braids and then braid the ribbon through the hair as well. Or use the pony to pile the hair on top of the head and wrap the ribbon through carelessly and just hang.”
Umberto is also a fan of vintage-like clips, which always look beautiful placed in the bend at the ear of a 40’s evening style. This versatile look can also be placed at the side of a low bun/ponytail. If you have short hair, you can place near the bangs. (Kate Spade, $60.00)
We agree — versatility is the best part of warmer weather hair accessories, as is being in bloom! Nothing says spring/summer like bloomin’ flowers, like this FABULOUS Shabby Apple polka fluff flower headband ($23)!
Looking for something simple and flirty? An ebullient bloom lends spring-fresh style to a stretchy fuchsia head wrap in this Tasha “In Full Bloom” Head Wrap, available at Nordstrom ($38).
Want to be bright, sunny, and…fascinating? This is one of the most awesome hat fascinators we’ve seen in a while — and it’s made by hand, one piece at a time. Pretty amazing, right? ($48 at PinUpGirlClothing.com)
Pekela ‘PK’ Riley, celebrity stylist and owner of Salon PK, in Jacksonville, Florida says color is the real accessory to keep in mind this season. She says “We are color blocking with our clothes and now you’re going to see color blocking with our hair. The trend started with celebs like Ciara and her “cotton candy” locks and Kelly Osbourne’s gray, and now lavender hair has gotten people in the mood to liven things up!
But remember, you don’t have to match your clothes to your hair, just wear the color as an accessory for that extra pop! PK says this will work especially well with the aforementioned flora trend! For example, behold this awesome Regal Rouge Flower Hair Comb by Flowers From Fatima – can you get OVER that bright pop of color? Plus those crystals and pearls can formal up even the most boring of company picnics!
