Coachella may have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean you should hang up your flower crown just yet.
Flower crowns are a hair trend perfect for the summer, whether it’s going to a daytime festival, a party or a wedding. Check out our tips for pulling off this look.
5 Tips For Wearing Flower Crowns
Some flower crowns are sweet and dainty, looking more like a headband. Others are big and bold. If you're unsure about jumping on the flower-crown bandwagon, choose a more tame and easy-to-wear option first. A thin band with smaller flowers in one color can act as a simple and sweet accessory.
Find a Style that Works
Some flower crowns look more boho, some give off a retro vibe, and others are perfectly preppy. Find or make a flower crown that fits your personal style or whatever you'd like your style to be for the day. Your look can also change based on how you wear your crown. When it sits down on your forehead, you'll achieve a more boho look. Pushing it back further can make it look and feel more like a traditional headband.
Style it with Your Hair
Many are opting to wear a flower crown with their hair left down, either straight or in waves. Another option is to incorporate a braid into the look. Try a loose fishtail braid and make your crown the finishing touch. Flower crowns also work well with a messy bun. The combination of undone hair and wildflowers creates an easy, carefree look that's perfect for casual summer days.
Wear it with Friends
There's power in numbers, even when it comes to summer hair trends. Get a group together and plan a DIY flower crown party. Gather some supplies, encouraging your guests to bring extras. Look for inspiration on blogs and Pinterest, then get creative.
Embrace the Trend
The key to pulling off any trend is to wear it with confidence. The beautiful thing about flower crowns is that they work with any hairstyle. Whether your hair is short or long, dark or light, wavy or straight, a band of flowers can only add to your look.
