- On a regular day of college or a luncheon or a lazy beach outing, these hairstyles can be your perfect spring time companion.
- Do not over do the makeup as the flowers are attention enough. A natural or soft approach to makeup will be the best. This would include your lip color and eyes. Go easy and use light pigments in pink and peach if necessary.
- If the lips need to be darker, again stick to red or pink.
Tips to choose the right flowers
- Different styles will require different flowers. But as a general rule, stay away from big gerbera daisies as they can look too childish on most. But then again for one person or hairstyle it might just look great.
- You can either match your flower with your attire or contrast with it.
- If your eyes are colored, choose the color of the flowers to compliment them and bring them out.
- The color of your hair should also be taken into consideration. Bright flowers look great on dark hair and on light hair color, purple and yellow is known to compliment. Pink usually works for both.
- Unless you are very sure of the look or are known for your eccentric style, do not go for huge flower sizes. Stick to medium and small. If you are using a huge flower, a single piece should be enough.
- Natural flowers work best with a look making it feel fresher and of course natural.
