In this Coachellified world, a flower crown, a wreath of flowers, or a single, spontaneously plucked daisy worn above one's ear has become the signature attire of the noxious, faux-carefree flower child — a thing to be mocked, then sold for $35 at a summer festivals. But take that flower wreath, intertwine it in lush beard hair (as seen on these bold men found on Tumblr and Instagram), and all of a sudden, it becomes a thing of weird beauty. Behold, the bearded man as gamboling urban wood-nymph.
