Floral Hair Masterpieces with Wildflower Gypsy
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.
Nature paints her own masterpiece with Stargazer lilies, spring roses, and ranunculus.
Shades of Spring
Succulents, thistles, and eucalyptus pods accent softly flowing waves in a celebration of tonality.
Spring greenery, kangaroo paws, and chocolate Queen Anne’s Lace entwine with braids to create a feminine, crowning glory.
