Why Wear Flowers In Your Hair When You Can Wear Your Hair In Flowers?

Braided rose hairstyles are taking over the world this month and we can definitely see why. These intricate creations are delicately woven using your tresses to create a blooming and fresh hairdo.

Conceived by Alison Valsamis, a hairstylist based in Connecticut, USA, braided roses may seem a bit too complex and difficult to achieve at home but luckily for us, Alison has explained how you can manage to create your look in a recent interview with Allure magazine.

 “To create these roses, I start with a small 3-strand braid rolled up to serve as the centermost part. Next, I alternate between standard fishtails and Dutch fishtails pulled apart to create depth. I finish with a Dutch 3-strand braid only pulled out on the outermost side to create the large petal feel of a rose in bloom.”

Okay, so it isn’t as simple as we would like. But Alison has been even more generous with her creation, providing an in-depth and visual guide on her Instagram account (@braidedandblonde). Check it out below, and stun at your next outing!
