Bridal headpieces: the finishing touch

I love seeing the variety of bridal headpieces my clients bring in to get their hair done for their wedding day. There are many different types of headpieces out there for brides-to-be so here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing the one that’s just right for you.

Headbands, tiaras and crowns

These headpieces are best for brides who are looking for a way to complement the flowing hairstyle they’ve chosen for their wedding day.  A tiara can be the perfect touch for brides who want to feel like a princess, whereas a headband offers the chance to match the beading or crystals on your dress with the added perk of keeping your hair out of your face. Brides who are going for a more bohemian look can find inspiration in the floral crown worn by bride Natalie Portman.


Combs, pins and clips

These headpieces are ideal for accenting a bridal up-do. If your dress is full of beading and sparkle, you can go for a vintage accessory to match these embellishments.  And if you’re a bride whose dress features lace or a flower accent, you might select an oversized flower to frame an up-do that sits at the nape of the neck.

Look for something that complements your dress.

Don’t forget…

  • Explore your options. There’s a headpiece out there to suit each bride’s style, taste and budget. Try on a number of different types in order to find what looks best with your face shape.
  • Pull the look together. The best headpieces complement the bride’s gown and wedding day hairstyle. Don’t forget to bring your headpiece in on the day of your hair trial!
  • Shop around. Some brides splurge with custom-made headpieces, while brides on a budget turn to the internet for more options. If looking online, be sure to order in advance. I’ve seen my fair share of brides who were disappointed when their headpiece arrived in the mail.

Now that you’ve read these tips, it’s time to get out there and start shopping for your own wedding day headpiece!
