Here are five tips that can help you choose your bridal hair accessories.
1. Choose Your Personal Style
The first thing to take into consideration when choosing your hair accessories is your personal style and the style of your wedding. Your wedding day is planned accordingly to a certain theme, colors, and design that complement each other. So, why not your hair accessories? If your style is more romantic, maybe a sweet flower comb. More into trends? Go for a dramatic piece with lots of crystals and pearls. Having a destination wedding? How about a simple and elegant hairpiece. Stay true to your own personal style and find pieces that really speak to you and your wedding style.
2. Choose Your Hairstyle
Once your personal style is curated and set, the second thing you want to think about is your wedding hairstyle. Before purchasing hair accessories, hold off until you have decided on what type of hairstyle you will want to wear. Also, determine where the hairpiece will be positioned in the front, back, or side of your head. Next, it’s important to take into consideration your hair’s texture, color, and thickness. While your hairstylist can attach your hairpiece, brides with thinner hair should stay away from heavier pieces because they have a tendency to fall out or shift throughout your wedding day. If you are a bride with thicker hair, choose a hairpiece that will be able to grip nicely into your hair and feel secure. Finally, find a hairpiece that will compliment your hair color.
3. Choose Your Wedding Dress
The most important detail of your overall wedding look is your wedding dress. The dress is going to set the style for your whole look. Before choosing a hairpiece, make sure you have your dress figured out because different styles can end up clashing with your hairpieces. If your dress is more simple with no embellishments, you can choose any type of accessories. If your dress has more detailed embellishment, you will want to take more consideration when choosing your accessories. The color and fabric of the dress will also affect your choices when choosing bridal hair accessories.
4. Choose Your Color
Hairpieces come in different styles and colors. Silver has always been the traditional color for bridal accessories; however, colored hair accessories from gold, rose-gold, and opal are trending right now. The general rule when choosing which color will best suit your style is that gold is going to compliment ivory, off-white, or champagne dress. Make sure to be consistent and if you are wearing gold hair accessories, make sure the rest of your bridal jewelry is gold as well.
5. Choose Your Type
With so many options, it’s difficult to choose from the different types of hair accessories!
Bridal Hair Comb and Clip: This is the most popular choice for brides. With so many different styles to choose from, it is easy to find something that fits in with the style of your wedding and your personal style. Combs work best for updos but can be worn with hair down or swept to the side.
Headband or Tiara: This creates a beautiful, fairy tale, or classic look depending on your style. You can choose from a dainty, traditional, or glamorous look. Headbands and tiara’s work great for any style of hair.
Hair Flower: This is a romantic and beautiful bridal hair flower that is simple for a casual garden or backyard wedding.
Hair Vines: This trend in bridal hair accessories is perfect for a romantic and boho-chic look. The hair vines can be bent and manipulated into different shapes for any hairstyle.
Hair Pins: If you are looking for something simple, hairpins are a perfect choice. They are best in an updo or half-up, half-down hairstyle.
