Six Ways to Style Flower Crowns

Six ways to style a flower crown Flower crown season is upon us, and I for one cannot be more excited! Although truth be told, I tend to wear flower crowns in every season – I just switch up the colors to suit, wearing more rust-colored crowns in autumn and brighter ones in the spring and summer.

In addition to exploring all of the color options of flower crowns, there are also different hairstyles to play with when wearing crowns instead of defaulting to the same look over and over again. Here are a few of my favorites.

Six ways to style a flower crown Instead of wearing your hairdo with a flower crown, why not try an up do? For this look, I styled my hair in milkmaid braids with a twist – I made rope braids instead of the typical braid style and added my floral headband on top.

Six ways to style a flower crown Another style to try is a retro rolled up do. I used the circular frame of my flower crown as a base, pinning it towards the front of my head and then tucking my hair in small sections into the back of the crown.

It’s another take on the style I showed before for wet-set curls, so if you want step-by-step instructions for this look, click here (just style your hair dry instead of wet!).

Six ways to style a flower crown Instead of tucking all of your hair up, why not try a half rolled up do just using two small sections of your hair? This style works beautifully with asymmetrical flower crowns like mine by Emily Rose; the band is a full circle you can use to help style your hair and the flowers make a pretty statement at the front or side of your head.

Six ways to style a flower crown If you’re intimidated by flower crowns or not sure what style would suit you best, why not start with a flower crown that matches your hair? My blue floral crown is by Gardens of Whimsy, and I like how it visually adds texture to my hair instead of being a loud statement piece. There are loads of flowers crowns out there.

If you are blonde, you could start with a baby’s breath crown, or something rustic for redheads with roses or poppies – there’s a style and color out there to suit everyone.

Six ways to style a flower crown Some people treat flower crowns as the centerpiece of their hairstyle, but I actually prefer styling my hair in my favorite ways (like this messy faux fishtail) and just adding a flower crown on top. So up do or down, matching your hair or contrasting with it, I hope this post gave you some inspiration for wearing flower crowns this spring.

They add a really pretty finishing touch to so many outfits and hairstyles, and I hope to make everyone as addicted to them as I am! Cheers, Rebecca.

  • Thanks! My dress is from Modcloth:

  • The trick to rope braids is to make two sections of hair, twist both sections of hair in the same direction (so you have two twisted sections) then cross these sections in the opposite direction from your twists. For example, when I do a rope braid twist I usually twist my hair towards my face, then cross the twists away from my face. But if you look through my hair posts here or on my blog there are some posts that show this in pictures & might explain it better.

  • This hair color is stunning!! I’m getting mermaid hair envy 🙂

  • These ideas are all gorgeous but I think my favourite two are the half up do and the rope braids. A (silly) question for you though – how do you make rope braids? Is it just two twisted bunches of hair twisted around each other? I’d really like to try that one but not sure how – thanks!

  • Argh so gorgeous! And shiny! The fishtail is divine. If I tried that on my hair, though, by the time it was finished it probably wouldn’t be distinguishable haha.
