Flower crowns have been around for a couple of years now and honestly, it’s starting to get tiring. Sure, it’s cute and romantic, but you don’t have to wear flowers in the same exact way as millions of other folks did in the past few years. There are tons of other ways to wear flowers in your hair that will let you give a new spin to this hair trend.
How else can you wear flowers in your hair aside from a crown? Here are a few good techniques that you should try out:
1. Accentuate a bun with a huge bud.
Want to keep things fresh and classy? Adding a single, gigantic bloom to your hair could do the trick. The best way to pull this off is by adding the flower on a bun and that’s it. You can add it on the side, on top, or even under the bun. You can keep the bun sleek or loose. You can even add a few greens in there and you can still be sure to look breathtaking.
2. Tuck some in your braids.
For a full-on whimsical romantic look, braid your hair and just tuck flowers in them. This technique will still look great no matter how your hair is styled. It will look great if you have your braids in a crown, pigtails, or a side braid.
To really amp up the charm of this look, though, treat your braids like a floral foam. You can whip up an arrangement on it, especially if it’s rather spacious.
3. Tuck a large one (or two) behind your ear.
A fool-proof way to wear flowers on your hair would be to tuck some behind your hair. The bigger the flower, the more attention-grabbing it will be.
The classic way to pull off this style would be with side-parted hair. Tuck the flowers behind the exposed ear where less hair is available.
However, you can also do this with other hairstyles that involve side parts. It can make a sleek, side-parted ponytail look softer. It can also even out a large side braid.
4. Add some in your ponytail.
You can give this trick a go in two ways. The first one would be to add a flower right where your ponytail is held up. Think of how some hair elastics come designed with artificial flowers and just replicate the effect. You can also take it up a notch by adding a few smaller buds into the mix and make it look like your ponytail is dripping with flowers.
The other way would be to wrap your ponytail with flowers. String some blooms together to create a floral strand and then wrap it along the length of your ponytail. When worn with sleek, pulled back hair, it can definitely look dramatic. If you want to keep things tousled, you’ll surely nail a more romantic look.
5. Use it as a centerpiece.
This can border on flower crown territory but can also be a completely different take to the trend. It all depends on your execution.
The trick here is to go all out, really. Some opt to keep the hairstyle very simple then add a maximalist floral arrangement on top of it. Some wear an actual bouquet. With some creativity, you can definitely give a new spin to flower crowns.
You can also use flowers to add boldness to the hairstyle. It can help add volume to your look or balance out the volume of the hair. This technique requires vision and creativity and will definitely showcase your boldness if pulled off properly.
6. Shower in a bunch of small blooms.
For a more relaxed look, just add small blooms into your hair haphazardly. This should look like as if you rolled around a meadow filled with wildflowers and some of them clung onto your tresses. It can perfectly complement the perfectly tousled look, giving you an air of not caring about your appearance but still managing to look good.
7. Go metallic.
Perfect for formal events, metallic blooms can also be great alternatives to actual flowers in your hair. They also come in different shapes, sizes, and styles, so you don’t have to worry about your options.
However, there might be some limitations to styling them since they’re quite heavy. So if you just want to scatter some blooms in your hair, this might not do the trick. But if you want huge, bold headpieces that will turn heads, metallic flowers would be excellent options.
No matter what hairstyle you might want to sport, whether it’s professionally crafted at the JC Penney Salon or DIYed by your creative hands, there will always be a unique way for you to wear some blooms in your hair.
