Beloved Trend: Flowers in Your Hair

When I was working at a flower shop a few years ago, every now and then a customer would request a crown of flowers to be made. They were always to mark special occasions:  weddings, children’s birthday celebrations, or Spring festivals and holidays. In fact, floral wreaths have been the crowning headwear of many cultures throughout history. The ancient Romans donned crowns made of wildflowers gathered at the sight of military victories, and the Greeks crowned Olympians with rings of herbs such as laurel. In the unsurpassably romantic Victorian era, people used the Language of Flowers to communicate secret messages to others through flowers, and garlands were one way of expressing love, hope, and other things. And who could forget the Mama’s + the Papa’s singing about the gentle people in San Francisco, with flowers in their hair? Here are some modern manifestations of this beloved trend:
