Have you tried putting flowers in your hair several times, but never dared to take the plunge? The good news, the flower braid is back and it promises us a number of irresistible floral hairstyles to finally adopt this flagship trend of spring.
The flowers are inseparable from spring when they bloom in profusion to tint the landscape with a multitude of shimmering colors. Symbol of renewal and romance, they have always flirted with our hairstyles, so much so that they have earned a reputation as the ideal amenity for large events such as weddings or baptisms. But while we have often talked about them for the most important hairstyles of our lives, they have recently found a place in everyday hairstyles too. After sporting them in our hair for festivals, we have indeed been tempted by the charm of their petals to enhance our everyday hairstyles. This year, the flowers are even announced as must-haves among the hair accessories to draw to give style to our locks this spring with the return in force of the flower braid, a braid decorated with flowers perfect to style our hair. the arrival of sunny days.
Who says braid adorned with flowers says braid above all, and therefore the choice of braiding. One of the advantages of this hairstyle trend is that it allows us to show off all types of braids in our hair. Classic three-strand braid that is easy and quick to make, inverted braid that gives more relief to the braiding, spike braid with strands that are worn either tight for a glamorous look or loose for a bohemian style, African braid with braiding glued to the leather hairy from the root…. The braids are as diverse and varied as the hair types, and so much the better to be able to showcase them all with the flower braid. You will therefore necessarily find one that you like to display this pretty spring hairstyle which is very easy to personalize. And that's not all: like any simple braid, the flower braid can be worn in a variety of ways too. While it is easily braided into a large braid that holds the entire hair together, it can also multiply in the hair into several small braids distributed throughout the hair mass. If you choose to have only two on either side of your face, then they can be brought together at the back of the head to create a charming half tie. The single braid, on the other hand, can be rolled up into a bun, whether it's located low in the nape of the neck or perched on top of the head in a bun. This flower braid-style bun can also be split into floral macaroons for fans of 90s hairstyles (which are particularly popular lately). Retaining only part of the hair, or disciplining the entire hair, the flower braid is also worn in a crown around the head for those who have rather long hair. In other words, this hairstyle is tailor-made according to the length of your hair, their thickness or quantity, and of course your preferences.
Also, the choice of which flowers to decorate your flower braid with is entirely up to you and your taste. Blooming rosebud, blooming flowers, country daisies, exotic flowers that give us desires elsewhere (such as the hibiscus or frangipani flower): all the flowers lend themselves to decorating your braids this spring, and whatever their color.
Simply by making the braid of your choice and then decorating it with flowers that you prick into the hair using bobby pins. It's up to you to see the number of flowers you place in your hair, depending on whether you want your braid to be more or less flowery, and your styling more or less discreet.
A word of advice: if you choose to put several flowers in your braid, be sure to incorporate them along the entire length of your braid, alternating the strands on which you fix them for a harmonious result.
The only drawback to this trend which seduces us with the hairstyles that take advantage of the beauty of fresh flowers: it forgets a little the fragility of these natural accessories...
Fresh flowers are certainly the most beautiful effect on the hair, but they are far from the ideal accessory in hot weather because they do not tolerate high temperatures, especially when they are cut and do not have their stems soaking. in water. As a result, by relying on fresh flowers to decorate your braids, you risk that they wither before the end of the day (or the evening). Unless you have a photoshoot planned or can regularly retouch your hairstyle, we advise you to turn to alternatives to create your floral hairstyle.
Rest assured, there are several solutions to thwart this little technical problem: opt either for dried flowers in a bohemian and bucolic spirit if you want to decorate your braid with real flowers, or for artificial flowers that reproduce with more or less of realism the ephemeral beauty of the petals of freshly cut flowers thanks to various materials, including fabric. Whatever the option, there is then a multitude of hair accessories decorated with dried or artificial flowers to make your flower braid.
Elastics adorned with fake flowers to decorate your braid in the simplest way with a turn of elastic, floral hair combs to slip into the hair once styling is finished, barrettes or clips adorned with petals or whole flowers to attach between the strands of your braid, and to distribute between your locks to decorate all the hair, crowns of flowers to place on the head to transform any hairstyle into a charming floral tie… There is no shortage of options and accessories to adapt to the trend of the flower braid. And good news, you can even find them at a low price to try out the flower braid trend without breaking the bank.
And you, for which variant of the flower braid are you ready to put flowers in your hair?
