Flower Girl Hair Ideas
Select a hairstyle that's appropriate for the occasion and the flower girl's age
By Samantha Cabrera
Deciding on how your flower girl should wear her hair can be difficult. You want the little girl to be comfortable, and you also want her hairstyle to last through the day with only minor touch-ups. Let the child's dress, accessories and personality inspire her hairstyle.
A large bow in the hair is a darling look for a flower girl and goes well with a half-up, half-down hairstyle. This look is easy enough for the little girl's mother or someone in the bridal party to manage. Start with clean hair and add some styling cream. Run a large-barrel curling iron through small sections of the little girl's hair. You aren't looking to achieve major curls, just a polished look with some volume. Part her hair from ear to ear with a fine tooth comb. You now have two sections of hair. Gather the top section into a ponytail at the top or back of the head and secure with a hair elastic. Add the bow over the hair elastic and spray with a lightweight hairspray to hold the style. If the flower girl is wearing a brightly colored sash, you can use that color for the bow in her hair. You can also go with white. The bow should be made of chiffon, tulle or grosgrain and should be fairly wide -- about 2 to 4 inches. You can also use a bow to add pizazz to a standard ponytail for a flower girl.
A ring of flowers or coronet on the flower girl adds a feminine, romantic touch to your wedding. This is best for flower girls ages six and older: Younger girls may feel uncomfortable wearing it and may try to tug it off. If the flower girl is wearing a ring of flowers or coronet, her hair can be worn down or half-up, half-down. Spray hair with a lightweight hairspray for hold, and place the coronet on her head at a slight angle. Secure the coronet with tonal bobby pins on either side and on the back of the headpiece.
This style is suitable for a flower girl, even if she's a toddler. Create a deep part on one side of the little girl's head using a fine tooth comb. Run styling cream or shine serum through the hair to calm any fly-away hair or frizz. If the girl has shoulder length or longer hair, you can also run a large barrel curling iron through her hair to add some volume. Take the portion of the hair you've parted and gather it above the arch of the eyebrow. Secure with a rhinestone or flower barrette, large bow or embellished bobby pin. This style takes hair off the flower girl's face and creates a chic, simple look that will be easy to maintain throughout the course of the wedding.
