How to Accessorize your Hair Updo with Flowers

Alicia Boal


Certain fashion trends will always be classic, like putting a blossom in your hair!  From the fashion runways to the prom and wedding dance floors, this trend is HOT! Flowers in your hair add an air of romance and are an instant, fresh upgrade to your special occasion style for the spring and into the summer.

Flower Trend Tips

These 1-inch-diameter star-shaped florets have an intense fragrance that is reminiscent of true jasmine, which is how they came by their common name. Another option is dendroibim orchids which are the small deep purple orchids popular in centerpieces.  All of these fresh flower types are hardy blooms and won't wilt under the bobby pins used to secure in your hair.
