How and where to wear flowers in your hair

For pin up looks

The thing about wearing flowers in your hair is that you can be as versatile as you want. But there are limitations and places on your head where you shouldn't wear flowers.

Here are some do's and don'ts

Do wear one or more flower on the side. Notice I said one or more. This means you don't have to wear just one flower on the side .But make sure you don't over do it.

Don't wear more than 3 small flowers on one side. In my opinion, you shouldn't wear more than 3. If you must wear more than 3, try spreading them out like a headband of flowers.




Do wear a flower close to the top of your head in an updo.


Don't wear it near the center of the front of your head or anywhere near your forehead.



Do wear large flowers in your hair. Especially toward the back of your hair, in an updo.


Don't wear them TOO large and too close to your face.
Wearing them closer to your face, in my opinion, is too distracting for every day wear. Unless, you are part of some sort of a show, or photo shoot, keep a larger flower away from your beautiful face.

Hey Iris, I love your blog and have been watching your videos for a long time. I have done most of the hairstyles except my hair is short so it's always a variation.
Anyway, Just thought I'd say hi and I'm so excited you have a blog to follow! I love blogs!!
later,
Suzette!

Hey Iris, your blog is lovely! I always want to wear flowers in my hair, but sometimes i feel like it would be too much because my hair is long and curly. Thanks for these tips!

Am I behind on fashion or what! Started watching a new novela and this girl "teresa" always wears flowers. I'm ready to jump on the bandwagon.....2 years late but ready none the less. Wish me luck.

What I do

I make hair tutorials on YouTube. But I created this blog to connect with my fellow writers/bloggers. I've also created a myspace account, but I don't like the format for blogging. I'd rather blog here. As far as something to note about me: I rarely have will power when it comes to dieting. I'd rather eat what I want, but in moderation. I like girly stuff, but I don't like doing my own hair. I rarely do my own hair, so if you saw me in the street, you'd probably not recognize me. But if you ever saw me, I would love it if you came to say hi. Thanks for reading my blogs.
