Floral afros can be done using either real or fake flowers and will transform your coily and curly locks into a beautiful masterpiece. This trend is perfect for festivals, concerts, weddings—or really, just any sunshine day.

Tiny flowers with flexible stems are great for creating crowns and fascinators. Simply take the stems and gently weave them into the shape of your desired headdress. Weaving the flowers into your hair can lead to tangling if you are not careful, so it’s suggested to create your floral accessory beforehand. Check out yours truly!
