How to wear flowers in your hair - a cheat's guide part 2






Well Part 1 was an internet phenomenon, so here is part 2.

This is a nonchalant look, like you just picked a flower and tucked it behind your ear. Did you do that with daises and buttercups when you were little?

You will need a flower, I have used a single head of the spray rose Majolica, but a gardenia would be just fabulous. 1 small safety pin, 1 kirby grip in blonde, or brunette if you are one.

Snip the head off, leaving a little of the stem, otherwise the wretched thing will fall apart on you.

Skewer it with the safety pin, and close the pin. This gives you something to grip to.

Position at a suitably nonchalant angle, and grip in.

Easy as pie.

Are you loving these instructional posts? Do you think they would make a great book? A pretty hardback?With beautiful photographs and illustrations? Retailing at £20?

Me too.


Please note, roots have been touched up, a brush might have been useful though....

Next week, flowers for one of those o so glamorous messy up-dos.

All of us in the flower shop are getting a beeg kick out of this.

Hair color looks fabulous BTW.

Yes, I'd buy that book! Everyone loves simple, quick ideas to make everyday life a little prettier.

This tip is great! Can't wait for next week's.

Uber excited about flowers for updo's. Could we perhaps have two posts? One for a stylish and neat audrey style updo and maybe one for a loose style updo? Or would that just be giving the book awayI am thinking that flowers in my hair may distract from the grey (I am 27 and cry every time I find one) and green (my hair is brown with natural tints of GREEN - Weird)

How do we deal with the little flowers? I would love to put little sprigs of gyp or those tiny daisies in my hair to make the flyaway bits look like a stylists dream....

I think I may have a go at doing one of these for a wedding I am going to in August.

Thanks
