When a bride has ticked 'the dress' off her checklist, hair, makeup and accessories come next to help complete to look. With the hairstyles, hair lengths and hair colour being unique to the individual, and the designs of hairpieces being endless how do we know what is right for the look? Do not fret! We've got you covered as we show you the five most common types of hairpieces to go with your bridal hair.
This one is popular with buns, plaits or pinned hair. This hairpiece is inserted into a bride's hair and held on using pins. It's a good way to add an asymmetrical element to your hair. For brides who want more symmetry or to jazz up their veil, put it over your updo at the centred of your look or the point where the veil attached to your hair.
For brides who are looking to add just a small amount of sparkle or interest to their hairstyle, this is a good option. Pins are usually small and can be inserted into most looks. For brides who are looking to get a smaller, repeat element to cover their buns or plaits all over in a scattered formation, this is also an excellent option. If brides are wanting to add a similar element to flower girls these small-sized headpieces are a perfect go-to.
Clips are similar to combs but can make a bride's life easier due to bring clipped on instead of being held together with pins. It's a great way to add interest to your hair if you are not looking to have an updo or plaited elements in your hair.
This long ribbon/ring of embellishment usually comes with clips or combs on either end to hold into the hair and suits all styles and colour of hair. Vines/halos are generally flexible as it's often designed to be worn on or around the head at the top, like a crown, or at the back of the head. For a more relaxed bohemian look try wearing these across the forehead instead of directly in the hair.
If drama and looking regal is on the list then this is the perfect fit! Crowns are traditionally worn at royal weddings and are a symbol of status and wealth. These days bold and daring brides wear it as a statement similar to coloured shoes. The best thing about having a crown is, it will suit every hairstyle regardless of the do a bride chooses. When choosing a crown, its size needs to be carfully considered as it needs to complement the dress and bride while having a comfortable weight to be worn all day.
