While it makes for some incredible Instagram stories, you’ll need to act fast when working with an opulent floral headpiece. Even the freshest and perkiest flowers will start to wilt as they come into contact with body heat. You can turn any flower of any size into a statement hair accessory with the right tools. Secure larger petals to bobby pins and combs using wire; daintier blooms can be temporarily glued into place using eyelash adhesive. To complete your look, add something timeless, like a classic leather jacket with floral embroidery. A metallic blue eye pencil on the waterline adds a punk edge to any photoshoot.
