Flower garlands and hairbands are hot, hot, hot this summer. From festivals to the tennis courts of Made In Chelsea, everyone’s digging the flower power. I’ve long been a fan of piling things up on my head (flat hair syndrome – I love volume), so I’ve wholeheartedly embraced this trend. Plus a substantial hairband is great for hiding root regrowth.
What I don’t like is forking out for a costly flower garland that only goes with one dress in my wardrobe. So I visited H&M and raided their fabric flower hairclips to construct my own, using either a stiff or an elastic hairband. A stiff hairband creates more height (think Frida Kahlo), an elastic hairband feels more hippy (think Woodstock) – I pick dependent on my mood. The result? A unique, cost-effective floral headdress I can mix and match to coordinate with my chosen outfit. Peace out.
