Romantic Wavy Hair with Red Flower Crown

The best hair accessory for a summer bride? Flowers! Whether you picture yourself walking down the aisle wearing an updo, a half-up-half-down look, or flowing, wavy locks, a floral accent will transform your wedding hairstyle into something entirely fresh.

Some brides choose to coordinate their blooming accessory with their bouquets, while others opt for something totally different. Either way, the blossoming addition is an effortless way to personalize your wedding-day look.

Classic brides should try tucking a single flower into a chignon or high bun. Ladies looking to wear their hair down on their big day should pin just a few strands back and secure it with a bright, lush bloom for an utterly romantic vibe. And of course, the ever-popular flower crown is a must for bohemian brides-to-be. The statement piece pairs well with an array of wedding hairstyles. Plus, the topper is super versatile: Skip it for the ceremony for a more traditional look and rock it at the reception for a more playful style. Surprisingly, even the most classic brides are trying the trend by opting for daintier styles made of baby's breath or a crown of greenery with just a few stems.

And while there are certain flowers that lend themselves to a floral hairstyle (like smaller blooms with a lot of texture), nearly any blossom can be incorporated into your wedding 'do. Try roses, orchids, gardenias, and other similar buds.
