3 Easy Ways to Bring the Cottagecore Aesthetic To Your Hair


If you’ve spent any time on social media the past few months, you’ve probably heard the term “cottagecore” being thrown around. It’s the dreamy aesthetic that’s been trending during quarantine and the reason why your Instagram feed has been filled with images of elaborate picnic setups and girls in frilly, floral dresses. Pretty much, cottagecore speaks to this romanticized idea of living in the countryside.


For those of you who still have no idea what I’m talking about, TikTok user Lillie Elkins (@lillies.apothecary) defines it best: “Anyone else just want to, like, move off the grid into a cottage in the middle of a forest where you can bathe in a nearby stream, make your own quilts, grow your own herbs and spices, and dance with fairies?” It’s basically Taylor Swift’s Folklore brought to life.

Quarantine’s favorite aesthetic has been popping up in everything from fashion to interior design and now, even hair. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite hairstyles that give off major cottagecore vibes.

Flowers In Her Hair

The cottagecore aesthetic is very romantic and soft, so for hair this means decorating your lovely locks with some pretty blooms. The more flowers, the better!
