Deciding on the right hair accessories to compliment your wedding dress and style can be a challenging task. Some accessories can either enhance your face, hair and dress or detract from your look.
Where do you begin? You start by the dress style you choose and what the neckline looks like. Is it plunging, dressed with a collar, off the shoulder, sleeveless or not? These are all styles that can be complemented in different and unique ways.
You may not choose to add a hair accessory due to the style of your dress. However, if you do, there are many options to choose from. Here are the most popular categories to think about or try on when you have your test run with your stylist.
Bridal Comb or Clip: Hair combs are by far the most popular choice. They can be very simple or more elaborate depending on your taste, style and dress. Combs usually win over clips as they are more reliable to last throughout the evening without falling out as you are sashaying around the dance floor. They also tend to be the most forgiving in causing a headache whereas clips can often lead to a pinching, digging feeling in your scalp. There is nothing worse than having something annoy you throughout the joy of the day, taking away moments of bliss because you are focusing on the pain in your hair!
Hair Flowers: There is nothing like a flower to either make a simple or dramatic statement to your hair style. For an outdoor, backyard, garden or beachy wedding adding a simple flower would be the perfect touch. For a more formal wedding in the evening, choose a more embellished look to add a touch of elegance and glamour to your style and yet still look and feel romantic.
Hair Vines: These are the newest trend in bridal hair accessories. They are a perfect touch for a boho or romantic look because they can be curved and manipulated into many different shapes to accent any hair style.
Hair Pins: These comprise of a very understated look, but are elegant in their simplicity. They look best in updo or half up and down hairstyles, although they can also be woven into short hair styles. Combining a number of hair pins can be beautiful when they all contain the same elements within. These can include a pearl theme, rhinestone theme or tiny ceramic hair pin theme and so forth.
Headbands:: A beautiful headband will create both a beautiful classic or dramatic statement depending on your style. If you are a traditional bride, a dainty underrated look will add the perfect touch. For a more glamorous look, add some bling to the headband you choose.
