Made by master stylist at ARROJO studio, Cheryl Fazio, as part of a collection titled, ‘Light and Sweet’, this is a vivid interpretation of a modern occasion style. For the girl who wants to frolic in the meadow, or simply be different, this whimsical style suits everything from summer music festival to garden parties and weddings. The trend for flowers in hair abounds this spring and summer, yet its seasonality means it will be gone by the time the first leaves fall; if you want to wear it, the time is now. And it’s easier than you think. All Cheryl did was buy some flowers from Chelsea Market, blow-dry the hair, and then twist together the stems to create a flower-power headband. For her own insights, click style notes.
— I like the current drift towards occasion hair accented by flowers and wanted to try it out.
— After purchasing these blooms I blow-dried my model’s hair using refinish dry shampoo. It was a simple round brush blowdry to give her hair lots of body. After blowdrying, I used a few pumps of primp to add more texture and grip.
— To make the headband of flowers, I bent the stems so they would be flexible. Then I tied them together, placing the completed bunch across the crown, from ear to ear.
— The romantic whimsy of the accessory means that hair should not be too straight, geometric, or severe. It’s better for the finish to look loose, organic and natural. I used a curling wand from mid-shafts to ends to create the soft tousle of cascading texture.
— I love this look –– it looks and feels so special and different, yet, with a trip to the flower shop, anyone can do it.
