A flower is probably the oldest, if not the first hair accessory and its tradition of adorning our hair is still alive today. We see countless hairpins, headbands, and barrettes with floral design, as well as the good old real or fake flowers we put in our hair.
All of these are great accessories but are not always available. Your hair, on the other hand, is with you always, and it can be shaped into the perfect flower at any time.
With a few twists and turns, you can make a lovely flower to adorn your hairstyle. And in the hands of professionals, the possibilities are endless.
Here are some of the prettiest flower-shaped hairstyles done by the hands of some pretty creative people.
