During our travels in China we noticed a really strong fashion trend going on. Sprout and other plant-related hairpins is this fall most popular accessory. Around 100 different designs are available for the unusual hair accessories and they are worn by all ages!
Everywhere we looked sprouts, grass, and flowers were blossoming from Chinese people’s heads – and nobody quite knows why.
The craze took off in Chengdu, the capital of China’s southwestern Sichuan province, sometime in early September. How it began isn’t clear, but now men, women, and children can all be seen with plastic plants growing out of their heads. The pins sell for around 1 USD.
After spending 1 month in China, we actually started coinciding with this weird trend and decided to rock the fake plastic plants ourselves – (h/t: CNN)
Cute isn’t it?
And that guy is definitely rocking it….
And from the back…
If you don’t fancy beansprouts, you can achieve the same look with a mini flower
We had to take part in this weird Chinese trend
