Let Your Hair Decide

Unless you are thoroughly particular about the exact type of style and flower decoration for hair that you are looking for, and how it will be placed, it is best to let your stylist decide for you and give you the best shot. For single flower placements, you can go for unique, large fresh flower species which are perfect for singular placement accents. They are colourful and dramatic to look at and will add charm to your hair without going overboard with it or being too messy. For example, you can flaunt a single lily or an orchid for an elegant look that will suit your hair. These larger hair flowers work best for simple hairdos and the large blooms go well with straight hairstyles or hair updos.

If you have awesome curls and wish to highlight the best features of your hair texture such as volume, you can look for smaller flowers that will nicely complement your hairstyle and attire without making things too much or out of proportion. While choosing flowers and designs, aesthetic sense needs to be incorporated to decide what suits best for your look and occasion.

For best results for curly or wavy hair textures, the kind of flowers that work perfectly are daises, stephanotis, baby’s breath, etc. These are some of the excellent species of flowers that you can look for and create the perfect look for the day. If it is your wish that the flowers be the focus of your wedding style, try to go for an Indian floral arrangement that works best with your attire and colour code. The most popular floral bridal hair décor styles include the floral crowns. But then, they are best as a style for straight texture as the style works best with loose hair, buns or even the simple hairstyles.

Do Care For Your Flowers

Be careful about the longevity of the fresh flowers that you choose for your hairstyle as you do not want the flowers to go limp and down in just a few hours into the wedding, right? In order to get the maximum life out of your flower decoration for hair, have the flowers cut and placed in water, closest to the ceremony to save them from getting tired. If it is not possible to cut the flowers right before the ceremony for placing them for the hairdo, you can also keep them in a cooler or a refrigerator till it is time to take them out for the hairstyling.

Always remember, when getting ready, flowers need to be the last thing that you put onto your hairdo so that they are kept away from the exposure to styling sprays, serums or the heating appliances that may take away their freshness. Also, do not place flowers too close to your face as the sweat, moisture, facial oil and make-up can lead to their premature wilting.

Getting fresh flowers can be a tad bit difficult as they need to be arranged the same day of the ceremony and can be really hard to manage if you are running on a tight schedule, have too few people to plan for too many things or plain lack time. But that doesn’t mean you cannot flaunt a floral hairdo.

3. Side-Swept Magic

To look elegant and in control of the situation, you can also go for a side-swept half-open hairstyle with flowers of your choice and size tucked in at the side, in case you have thick and voluminous hair and feel scared to go with a completely open hairstyle.
