Flower Hair Clip - Beautiful Expression of Style

Woman with hair flower clip for weddingA flower hair clip is a popular accessory for the hair because they are easy and comfortable to wear and add instant impact.  When mixed with feathers and other touches, the flower hair clips are also known as fascinators.  Of course when you add a partial birdcage veil or bit of netting, you can enhance the beauty of your hair flower even more.

There are all sizes, types, and colors of flowers for the hair available.  Hair flowers have been made by milliners (hat makers) for centuries, and they never go out of style.  Indeed, this vintage look is making a huge comeback as modern brides, bridesmaids and women everywhere are searching for great new hair accessories to wear.  

And what could be better than a touch of nature as an adornment for your hair?   Whether you are looking for wedding hair flowers, bridesmaids hair accessories to match their dresses, or everyday wear, you will find one that works for you.  They are also perfect for flower girl hair accessories, as they can be made in small sizes and are so comfortable and easy to wear.  Every woman can feel like a princess with the right hair accessories!

About Hair Flower Clips

Manufactured silk flowers tend to look the most realistic, as the petals are pressed into shape using heated irons and millinery flower tools, and the petals are often dyed and colored--and even hand painted, to look as natural as possible.  

Handmade couture silk flowers tend to look more stylized - with dramatic shapes intended to hint at the appearance of a real flower, without being identical to it.  The style of hair flower accessories you choose is entirely up to your own sense of personal style and what sort of look you are going for.

You can even find handmade hair accessories that pick up an element in your  wedding gown, such as a matching bit of lace or tulle, to really pull together your look from head to toe.

One of a kind flower hair clip

We look for high quality silk flowers, velvet, and vintage millinery flowers and leaves to use in our creations.  We will also use colored poly silk flowers and accent them with beads, crystals, and other adornments.  We will work within your budget to find the perfect hair flower clips for everyday or your wedding or special occasion.  We can put them on clips, combs, and headbands at your request.

You can make your own hair flowers and hair flower clips or barrettes, too.  Simply select a nice silk flower, or if you have sewing skills, make one of your own.  Then, using either a hot glue gun or a needle and thread, attach a comb, alligator clip, or barrette to the back of the flower.  Use a small round piece of fabric to adhere the flower first, then attach the hair component to the back of that.  Many patterns for making hair flowers are available online.   Meanwhile, here are a few helpful links and an easy video on making floral hair clips:

How to Make Hair Flower Clips

Flower Hair Clip Ideas

A single white silk rose or gardenia blossom makes a classic wedding hair flower decoration, and of course these go great with birdcage veils!  Another idea is to couple one larger blossom with a couple of smaller flower buds.  Flowers with feathers add a dramatic and very feminine touch.  If you want a dangling spray of flowers, look for a hair clip that has a stream of smaller flowers, beads, or feathers at the bottom.  And, a wreath of hair flowers attached to a crown or a ribbon is a wonderful look for girls or for a natural outdoor inspired wedding.  Feather hair flowers have become very popular.  These are stylized impressions of real feathers, often crafted from fluttering soft Ostrich feathers, with Coque feathers or Schlappen feathers used to create more distinct "petals". They are very pretty and super lightweight so you barely know you are wearing one.

We can custom make just about any hair flower clip, and we can even create handcrafted porcelain flowers which make amazing hair flower pins or can be combined with feathers and veiling for an amazing bridal headpiece.
