The Girl With Flowers in Her Hair

Festival season is upon us and if you were lucky enough to head to Glastonbury then I'm sure you had a ball! I'm currently looking forward to Tramlines, Secret Garden Party and V Festival (Beyonce baby!) and I'm freaking out about what to wear. But one thing I do know, I'll be rocking some serious head wear.

But the inspiration doesn't come from those cheap plastic things doing the rounds on the high street (though I'm guilty for owning a few myself). This year I'm thinking beautiful, romantic, magical floral pieces of art for the hair. I've had a lovely time researching these images and I hope you take great pleasure from them too.

You can learn how to make this particular summery crown here from Honestly, WTF. Get down to your local florist and talk to them about which blooms are going to work best! DIY project ahoy.

So of course, we have done some of the leg work for you and found you some of the fabulous floral creations out there that will put those Primark garlands to shame! (Yeah I have one too...)


  1. Love these! My bridesmaids will be wearing flowers in their hair for my beach wedding so these are great inspiration! xx
