Although flower crown season is technically over, this month we have more than one reason to still adorn our buns, braids, or half-up hairstyles with a beautiful set of floral or plant arrangements. Succulent hair is a trendy look that’s great for fall weddings, or even to don during the cozy Christmas and end-of-year holidays.
Like flowers, there are a variety of succulents to choose from. However, you may want to stay away from cactus plants, which may be a little dangerous, and very fragile succulents like wax hearts. Instead, stick to succulents like echeverias or try using faux plants for this succulent hair tutorial. Whether you’re currently planning a wedding, have one to attend or want to dress up your holiday hairstyle with some succulents, here’s a simple way to create a succulent hair comb to add to your fancy updo.
How to Do the Succulent Hair Trend
Step 1: Choose your hair comb.
Any type of hair comb will work, just make sure it’s one that’s used for locking your style in place and not your traditional styling tool.
Step 2: Adhere your hair succulents to the hair comb.
Simply glue the plant onto the comb. Alternatively, you can use a bendable wire to attach your succulents to your comb. To do this, pierce a hole into the stem of the succulent and loop the wire through as if you’re threading a needle. Take the wire and wrap it around the base of combs teeth and around the top of the comb to secure in place.
Step 3: Add more.
Have fun and get creative! Add more succulent options or switch it up and add flowers.
Step 4: Style your hair.
One of the best styles for your hair succulent accessory is the croissant bun. After creating your croissant bun or any updo you prefer, slide the comb into the base of your bun so that the hair succulents sit right at the top and done! Then, lock in your hairstyle by using a firm hold hairspray, like TRESemmé TRES Two Freeze Hold Hair Spray.
