In my ballet days, I used to pick flowers from my garden and intertwine them in my bun. I decided to bring back the look, but for an everyday hair style. Here are some tips.
Think Small. The more compact the flowers, the better. Using tight buds works best because otherwise your petals can float off throughout the day. I especially found this to be true when dancing. Having pedals fly across the floor while pirouetting wasn’t the look I was going for!
Forgo the Prickle. My friend Kylee did my hair for these pictures and she’s always thinking. Before putting the roses into my hair, she took a scissor and trimmed off all the thorns from the stems.
Spray Before Pinning. Hair spray will cause the flowers to wither prematurely, so I always spray my hair before pinning the flowers in.
