Most of us don't get a cool excuse to wear a beautiful flower crown every day, even though we'd secretly love to! It's no surprise why hair florals have become a huge trend for weddings these days.
Bridal flower crowns and hair flowers are a super popular request from our brides, and it's one of my favourite creations to make. They're like little art pieces and can add a special touch to the overall look.
Like bouquets, hair flowers differ in shape, size and style. I always like to understand what the hairstyle will be so I can make sure the hair flowers will work well with what they have in mind, and the look that they want to achieve.
In this post, I've broken it down into the five main hair floral styles - which style's your favourite?
Style 1: Full flower crown
This style of flower crown goes all the way around the head, with the florals decorating the front and the back consistently. It works well for all hairstyles - up or down, short or long!
Style 2: Flower crown with ribbon tie back
Similar to the style above, this version is finished off with a ribbon tie back, which makes it even easier to adjust for size. It's super cute for flower girls - the touch of ribbon adds a dainty feel to it. This style can also work just as well for adults who prefer a bow look at the back, or just want to jazz it up a little so it's not a uniform crown all around.
Style 3: Floral combs
Combs are still a little bit under rated, so I want to put them in the spotlight! You won't see these from the front, but from the side or back, you'll get that surprising pop of blooms to catch your guests by surprise. Aren't they lovely? Floral combs work best with a full updo, so the comb gets tucked in and the flowers cap off the bun or curls.
Style 4: Symmetric hair florals
To create a nice balanced and even look, symmetric florals are what you're after. If you have a strong side part or fringe, adding a bit of symmetry creates a softer feel. This works really well if you're going for a gentle, pastel look.
Style 5: Asymmetric hair florals
Excited to adorn something more dramatic for your big day? Then asymmetry is your best friend! Wearing this style of hair florals will add a lot of emphasis to your overall look and portrait. They go best matched with a dress that's softer and simpler. Having both a very detailed and loud outfit, along with striking hair florals, will mean guests may not know what part of you to focus on!
