Silk Flower Hair Clip - Natural Beauty for your Hair

Woman with silk flower hair clipA silk flower hair clip is a popular accessory for your hair.  Not only are hair flowers easy and comfortable to wear, but they are beautiful and really transform your look.  Add some feathers and other elements and silk flower hair clips can be even more dramatic.  And nothing looks better with a birdcage veil than a flower hair clip on the side or on top to complete the look.

There are all sizes, types, and colors of flowers for the hair available.  Silk hair flowers have a popular adornment and have been crafted by milliners (hat makers) for centuries.  Hair flowers never go out of style. This is one vintage look that is making a huge comeback as modern brides, bridesmaids and women everywhere are searching for great new hair accessories that are unique and special.  

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 Silk Flower Hair Clips

When you are looking for the right hair flower, it helps to know what your options are. 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.

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.  Here are a few helpful links and an easy video on making floral hair clips:

Silk 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.
