Floral Hair Masterpieces with Wildflower Gypsy

Photography: Siobhan Egan / Hair & Floral Design: Chelsea Kester of Wildflower Gypsy / Makeup: Heather of Dollface by Jules / Florals: Everbloom, Inc. / Model: Rachel Davis

This spring hairstylist and creator of Wildflower Gypsy Chelsea Kester was inspired to create three botanical hair looks that epitomize what it means to be a free spirit. Her definition of a free spirit encapsulates a divinely feminine soul who can revel in her own natural beauty, and in this feature we paired this concept with beauty found in the natural world.

Chelsea pulled elements from flower petals, the ben of a succulent’s arm, and trailing vines of greenery to create hair looks that flow with texture and style.
