Autumn flowers for your hair

Autumn is a fantastic season for flower lovers. Not only do we have a wide variety of floral shades to choose from, but also a wide selection of seasonal foliage to match everything. Autumn is a time to celebrate those rich and golden colours such as oxidized orange and red, as well as some very dark purple and green tones. While it is nice to use a brilliant yellow sunflower in the hair during the hottest months, this time of year you might prefer more subtle autumn flowers to use as accessories.

Flower size

When looking for the best floral hair accessories for autumn, it’s a good idea to look for the same colours and autumn flowers as when choosing a floral arrangement. Of course, you may want to avoid particularly large flowers and look for something more discreet.

Headbands and pins

Hair accessories come in the form of headbands, elastics and various types of hairpins. The bands can be lined with the autumn flowers of your choice. Some good examples include small daisies, wax flowers, baby’s breath and even small roses if arranged well.

Less is more

Headbands only need one prominent flower to make the perfect statement. Also in this case, as with the headbands, it is important to choose the right flower. In this case, medium-sized autumn flowers that resemble daisies are a popular choice.

The right fit

Pins and clips can be decorated according to the size of the clip. Smaller clips require smaller autumn flowers, and you can use multiple clips to create the desired effect. The larger clips can be decorated with several flowers and you only need to wear one or two at a time.

It’s worth remembering that silk blooms often offer better value for money because they last much longer than fresh autumn flowers. There are hundreds of floral hair accessories on the market that use artificial flowers. Some are better quality than others. You can also make your own by purchasing flowers and attaching them to hair accessories using hot glue and a glue gun. When you are not wearing your precious hair accessories, you should store them in a safe, dry place, away from direct sunlight, to preserve their colour and quality.
