Flowers in her Hair

With London’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show just last week, floral mania is very much on our minds. Inspiration was everywhere from the architectural gardens to beautiful blooming peonies, not to mention the stunning window displays decorating Chelsea’s favourite shops.

To celebrate we’re excited to announce that we’re introducing a floral up-do service at our Kensington salon this summer. With real flowers seen in the model’s hair at Diane Von Furstenberg’s Spring Summer catwalk this trend is set to transition through to Autumn/Winter 2016 as demonstrated by Rodarte incorporating winter blooms into their gorgeous hair jewels.

Whether you’re heading to Ascot, festivals, garden parties, summer weddings or a day at the races these up-dos will be the perfect addition to your look.

Choose from three hair styles at our Old Brompton Road salon reminiscent of the English countryside including the Berkshire for a braided bun, romantic waves with The Hampshire or a fishtail braid with The Wiltshire.


The Berkshire (braided bun): £60 + cost of the flowers. Headdress by Heavenly Headdress.

The Berkshire (from the back).


The Hampshire (Romantic waves): £50 + cost of the flowers. Floral combs by Heavenly Headdress.


The Wiltshire (Fishtail braid): £50 + cost of the flowers.  Here we have used fresh gypsophila intertwined through the plaits.

Clients have the option of bringing their own flowers or the salon is able to provide these at an extra cost. If you’d like a bespoke headdress or floral comb, this can be ordered from Heavenly Headdress in advance.

If you’re seeking inspiration for your floral accessories we’ve selected our top celeb styles to guide you. Who could forget Selena Gomez’s stunning white orchids adoring her up-do at last year’s Met Gala?  Not to mention Rihanna seen last month in jewelled floral hair clips with her slicked back hair reveal this trend is more versatile than ever.   Why not try orchids in your hair like Selena with our Berkshire up-do?

Beyonce in Coldplay’s music video, ‘Hymm for the Weekend’ February 2015, wearing a metal floral crown certainly made a statement!

Singer Lana del Rey is known for her love of floral crowns and has worn them numerous times whilst performing and in music videos.  This bouncy blowdry compliments the colourful headdress perfectly!

We love this timeless image of Jane Shrimpton photographed in 1965 for Vogue.  The yellow flowers contrast so beautifully with Shrimpton’s hair colour.

    Wear with a relaxed blow dry style and team with a simple white tee and jeans for a laid back look.  Her Curious Nature are also stocked in Topshop, we particularly love their concession at the Oxford Circus store- you’ll struggle to leave empty handed, it’s a treasure trove!

  3. Waves in the hair and flowers are a match made in heaven.  Asos has the next best thing to fresh flowers in the form of delicate hair clips. Scatter these clips throughout your hair to enhance tousled waves. £6.00 for a pack of 8.
