For sheer ease of styling, a flower barrette (or two!) is one of the simplest ways to wear a floral hairstyle.

How to style it

Step 1

Apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream to damp hair and blow-dry, using a paddle brush to smooth the hair as it dries. This will leave you with soft, flyaway-free locks, so your accessories won't be overwhelmed.

Step 2

Once dried, part your hair slightly off-center, then brush it to fix the part in place.

Step 3

Gather your hair into a low knot or chignon and secure with bobby pins. For added detail, try a braided bun.

Step 4

Complete your updo with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray, then attach your barrette.

2. Floral headband bun

How to style it

Step 1

Starting with damp hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream and blow-dry your hair, using a round brush to smooth and curve the lengths.

Step 2

Sweep your hair back into a low ponytail and tie it approximately an inch above the nape of your neck.

Step 3

Twist the ponytail into a tight bun and secure with bobby pins.

Step 4

Mist your hair all over with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to add shine and eliminate flyaways. To finish, secure a string of flowers around your head like a headband and wrap the ends around the bun.

3. Flower crown

Floral crowns with all kinds of flowers featured within are a hairstyle staple for festival-goers around the globe. They look really pretty and they do a stellar job of hiding dirty roots!

Step 2

Smooth the lengths of your hair with some hair oil to add shine and keep your strands well nourished between washes.

Step 3

Attach your flower crown! For even more grip, spritz the clips or pins with dry shampoo before securing it.

For those of you who love the idea of getting botanical with your hairstyle, but want to keep your beauty look understated, try a sprig of something that's almost in bloom, or stick to teeny tiny flowers.

How to style it

Step 1

Apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray to completely dry hair and straighten it.

Step 2

After straightening, soothe your locks with some hair oil or serum to add shine, tame flyaways and generally nourish the hair.

Step 3

Leaving two large-ish pieces of hair loose at the front, gather the bulk of your hair into a ponytail at the back. After securing the pony, slide it through a bun maker insert, then pin the ends of the pony all around it.

Step 4

Slide your chosen floral accessory into the bun. Take one of the loose pieces at the front wind it around the bun, then secure with a bobby pin. Do the same with the other loose piece.

Step 5

Complete the look with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to add shine and keep frizz at bay.

Tousled waves with scattered blossoms is another super festival-friendly hairstyle. It has a natural-looking, soft silhouette that's just perfect for the bohemian summer beauties among you!

How to style it

Step 1

Spritz dry or damp hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and blow-dry it in twisted sections. This will set your strands into loose, tousled waves.

If you would prefer not to use heat, spray damp hair then braid it into pigtails and leave it to set.

Step 2

Shake your hair out with your fingers to separate the waves. At this point, you can use a curling iron to add more waves if necessary.

Step 3

Mist your waves with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray and attach small flowers at random through the lengths of your hair with bobby pins or small clips.

7. Windswept floral updo

When it's humid out, or you just want a hairstyle with some added volume, try a windswept floral updo. It's perfect for all occasions, and you can select the flowers depending on your makeup or outfit.

How to style it

Step 1

Apply Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse to damp hair, then rough-dry it completely.

Step 2

Spritz the roots on top of your head with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray. Lift the hair with one hand and gently tease it with a fine-tooth comb in the other. When you're happy with the height, gently smooth the hair back and pin it in place at the crown.

Step 3

Gather your hair back into a low knot, chignon or French twist, then attach your chosen flowers. Gently pull a few random wispy pieces of hair loose all around your head to soften the look.

Step 4

Complete the look with lashings of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray for long-lasting hold.

8. Floral headpiece

Like a flower crown, only more decadent, a floral headpiece makes a real style statement. It's a bold hairstyle for a special occasion, but probably something you should avoid at work.

How to style it

Step 1

To keep the focus solely on the headpiece, banish frizz with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray before putting your hair up.

Step 2

Gather your hair into a simple, understated hairstyle like a low knot or bun and secure with bobby pins. You don't want anything too intricate because a floral headpiece will make enough of a visual impact all by itself!

Step 3

Spritz your hair one more time with Strand Smoother Serum Spray, then attach your headpiece.

9. A single red rose

There's never a bad time to get romantic with your beauty look, so why not try pairing a single red rose with a simple bun or ponytail? Don't let Valentine's Day have all the fun...

How to style it

Step 1

Blow-dry your hair smooth with a paddle brush after applying Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream from roots to ends.

Step 2

Once your hair is dry, use a flat iron for any touch ups. Because you'll be putting your hair up, it doesn't have to be perfectly straight, just smooth enough not to distract from the rose.

Step 3

Gather your hair into a low ponytail at the back and tie. Wind the ends of the pony into a bun and pin it into place, too.

Step 4

Spritz your updo with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to tack down any flyaways and prevent frizz.

Step 5

Slide your rose into the bun and you're good to go!

10. Fairytale floral headband

Step 3

Arrange the ends of your pony into a messy chignon at the back and secure with bobby pins. Work in sections, positioning and pinning pieces on top of each other.

Step 4

Mist your updo with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray, then attach your floral accessories around the chignon.
