Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers In Your Hair: A Midsummer Hair Tutorial

San Francisco isn’t the only place you should be sure to wear some flowers in your hair. Swedish Midsummer (Midsommar) is the time to really let your braid-and-flowers-freak flag fly.

Both men and women get in on the fun in Sweden, so why not in this tutorial? Make-up artist and hairstylist Trude Desire Gustavsen shows us how its done on fashion blogger Sebastian Barret so that you can do it for your own, or a friend’s, hair. Friends braiding friends; that’s what we’re all about. For a look that’s easier to do on your own head, Emilie’s braid & flower crown look is as simple as it is beautiful.
