Azaleas are blooming now everywhere in Chinese New Year,
and I'd like to pick one to put in/on your hair.


Hi,

I try to write the above to someone I love. Should I I use in or on in this context? Thanks in advance.

    In if the person is walking about. On would mean literally on (top of) your hair, and would only make sense if the person was lying down or something like that and you placed the flower literally on top of the hair resting on the pillow.
