This Pink Rose Hair 'Do Is The Prettiest Spring Style Around

If you have been constantly searching through your Instagram feed to try and find your latest festival or wedding hair inspiration, then you can finally stop scrolling.

There is a new hair 'do in town, and it looks just like a pretty bunch of roses.

Blooming brilliant, if you ask us.

The incredible creation, first noticed by Allure, combines braids and pastel pink locks to create a floral bouquet on your head, making it perfect for any springtime event.

This unique trend comes courtesy of Fairfield, Connecticut hairstylist Alison Valsamis, whose own Instagram is full of these stunning floral hair arrangements.

And if you are wondering how on earth you'll recreate this 'do, then you're in luck, as the stylist has already revealed how she did it.

She told the magazine: "To create these roses, I start with a small 3-strand braid rolled up to serve as the centermost part."

The hairstylist continued: "Next, I alternate between standard fishtails and Dutch fishtails pulled apart to create depth. I finish with a Dutch 3-strand braid only pulled out on the outermost side to create the large petal feel of a rose in bloom."


She has a few more handy tips if you do want to have a go: work in small sections and braids to ensure you're creating lots of layers, and always pull apart the plaits, top to bottom, right to left.

And to help keep things perfectly in place while you're creating this dreamy look, you can use a light gel as well as a texture spray, which will help to keep any unwanted frizz at bay.

Don't fret if you don't fancy dying your locks a pretty pastel pink hue, as we think this would work with any hair colour.

Somehow, we still have a feeling that creating this is not as easy as it sounds...
