Hair Flowers - Finding The Right Women's Hair Flower
Hair flowers have long been a fashionable hair accessory for women. Traditional Polynesian cultures have worn fresh flowers in their hair for centuries. This trend of flower hair accessories quickly gained steam with the young culture today, especially on the West Coast of the United States. Where it is very common to see girls of all ages with flowers hair clips.
It has long been the ultimate hair accessory, a fresh flower pulled from the garden to accent a hair style. This was great, as long as the flower stayed fresh. As soon as it begins to wilt, the petals fall off and you're stuck with a with a dead flower in your hair! Now, silk hair flowers come in many sizes, shapes and colors and stay "fresh" forever! The idea is simple, create a silk flower that lays well in hair and secure a clip to the back so it can be easily styled.
Unfortunately, crafting them isn't so simple. The flower must be chosen very carefully, taking into consideration the shape of the petals in relation to the hair style. If a flower is too tall, it sticks straight up from the head, too flat and no one can see it. The flowers shape must also be considered, since odd shapes will have a hard time blending with a hair style. Online shops (which have the best selection) and craft fairs tend to be the best places to buy hair flowers.
There are many different great women's silk flower hair clip vendors all over the web. My personal favorite is Lucy's Blooms Etsy shop (link below). She makes realistic flowers that range in size from small lilies to huge lotus that would be a perfect wedding hair piece.

Be Sure To Wear Some Flowers In Your Hair
If you're going to San Francisco (or anywhere else, for that matter).
Hair flower clips have long been associated with the hippie culture that thrived in San Francisco in the 1960's. For them though, they relied on fresh flowers picked from parks. Luckily for you, that isn't the only option now!
Hair flower accessories make the perfect compliment to a tie-dye shirt and bell bottoms, as well as the most elegant prom dresses and evening gowns. Having an assortment of sizes and colors of flowers allows you to accessorize them with just about anything and be able to wear them every day.
Wearing flowers in your hair is a sign of elegance. Not every girl can pull this look off. Large flowers generally work best with long hair done up. For short hair, a small flower that lays very flat is best (similar to a bow). If you're lucky enough to have very long hair that styles easily, any type of hair flower will work for you.
A wedding hair flower is also an elegant look for any bride. Many designers will custom make bridal hair flowers to their exact specifications.
