Searching for the perfect hair accessories to complement your bridal gown can be a difficult process. Sometimes, the best way forward is to choose the style you like before looking for the specific item because there are so many great designs from which to choose.
Combs can be bold statements or simple and understated. When you are discussing wedding hair designs with your hairdresser, ask for advice about the type of comb to choose. You may want to add a little sparkle and glamour whilst still making sure that your gown is the main focus of the day.
Wax Flower Crowns
For a natural look, especially for long hair, why not go for a wax flower crown? These can be really delicate and pretty. The downside is that they are often hard to find, and you may have to scour vintage outlets to track down the perfect one.
Tiaras and Crowns
If you like a classic regal look, a tiara or even a crown could be for you. Costume dramas such as Downton Abbey seem to have been responsible for the increasing popularity of bridal crowns, and they can add a touch of opulence to your look. Crowns and tiaras are at their best in the setting of a country mansion, so take your wedding venue into consideration when deciding on your bridal hair accessories.
Hair vines are versatile and can be worn with any hair style to add an elegant and subtle note. For longer hair, simply wearing a hair vine like a conventional hair band with your hair loose can keep the look simple and comfortable but with a touch of real style. Alternatively, hair vines can be incorporated into an updo, worn across the back of the hair or across the forehead.
There are some stunning designer headpieces available if you are looking for something really different. Reporting on New York’s Bridal Fashion Week, the Evening Standard singles out Naeem Khan, an Indian-American designer who has showcased some bold headpieces in his collection of modern bridal pieces.
Whatever your style, make sure you allow plenty of time before the big day to find your perfect bridal hair accessory.
