I have been so taken with all of the stunning plants and flowers that seem to be finding their stride right about now. Last weekend we were swimming at my parents’ house and I was enamored with the crawling vines and abundant blooms that filled their backyard. I’ve yet to make it out of the grocery store any time this past month with out adding peonies to our cart. (‘Tis the season!) It’s no wonder I love this new sulfate-free collection by Herbal Essences that is inspired by nature and has real botanicals. We’re so excited to partner with them today to share these two floral hair tutorials that make adding blooms to look your look simple and fun this summer.
First, a little more about this collection! Herbal Essences shampoos are EWG verified and endorsed by the Royal Botanic Garden and Kew. This collection doesn’t contain sulfates, colorants, gluten, parabens, mineral oil and it’s not tested on animals. I really love how the shampoo and conditioner made my hair feel—full and soft! Aaron commented on how good it smelled!
First Tutorial: Adding Microflorals
This look is great for every day or a more casual get together. Secure a small bobby pin to one side of your hair. Choose blooms for this look that are small and wispy but also substantial and won’t fall apart when you’re adding them to your hair. Carefully take a stem at a time and secure it underneath the pin until you have the exact amount of fullness from the flowers that you like.
Second Tutorial: The Protea Ponytail
This look is bold and perfect for a wedding or fun night out. Put your hair in a ponytail as you normally would. Cut the stem of a larger bloom, like a protea, so that you can secure it beneath the rubber band. Don’t cut the stem too short or the weight of the bloom might make it impossible to stay put. Once the flower is secure, use coordinating greenery to hide the rubber band and balance out the look.
