Here are few tips on choosing dried flowers for your bridal hair style:
- Choose dried flowers that match your hair color and style. You can use a single type of flower or mix and match different ones for a more eclectic look. Some popular choices are lavender, rose buds, baby’s breath, daisies, and cornflowers
- Prepare your dried flowers by trimming the stems and removing any leaves or thorns. You can also spray them with some hairspray or clear coat to make them last longer and prevent shedding.
- Decide how you want to arrange your dried flowers in your hair. You can use them as a headband, a crown, a bun, a braid, or a clip. You can also weave them into your hair or attach them with bobby pins or elastic bands.
- Secure your dried flowers in place with some glue, wire, or thread. You can also use some ribbon, lace, or beads to add some extra flair. Make sure your dried flowers are firmly attached and won’t fall off easily.
- Enjoy your lovely floral hairdo and get ready to receive compliments from everyone. You can also take some photos and share them on social media to show off your creativity and style.
Dried flowers are a wonderful way to express yourself and enhance your beauty. They are also eco-friendly and affordable. Try using dried flowers to decorate your hair and see how they transform your look.
