Choosing the right hair accessory for you…
Brides are always asking us for advice on how to choose the right hair piece for them, when is the best time to purchase one and where to find them? We thought it was time to answer those questions…
There are many things to consider when choosing a hair piece:
- Are you wanting to wear your hair up or down – Some hair pieces are quite specific to one or the other with their fixings
- Are you wearing a veil – Where will the hair piece fit around the veil
- Style of dress
- Tiaras, Slides, Pins, Headbands or even fresh flowers! (These still count as a hair accessory)
Fresh Flowers are a great hair accessory and can look REALLY pretty if used right. You can always purchase these yourself from a supermarket or get your florist to prepare some for you. And DON’T forget your bridesmaids:
TOP TIP – A small bunch of gypsophelia is a great and in expensive way of really finishing of your bridesmaids hair. It looks really effective in both hair up and hair down.
BRIDAL FLOWER IDEAS …
There is no right time to purchase your hair accessory however we would normally recommend you do it after you have chosen your beautiful dress! This just means that you will have the perfect idea of what look you are trying to achieve. Whether you have chosen classic, boho or a city chic dress may then affect what type of hair piece you choose. There are some obvious pieces which suit a certain look but on the other hand sometimes mixing themes works well too! If you have chosen a very classic, simple and elegant dress you may want to look at something like a classic tiara or an elegant slide. Whereas if you are going for a very boho/outdoor wedding you may want something more relaxed like a hair vine or delicate pins.
Here are some other examples of types of hair pieces that go well with certain hair styles:
CLASSIC AND ELEGANT – The use of sparkly tiaras, hair slides and hairbands…
BOHO AND RELAXED – Achieved with the use of hair vines and pins..
BUT REMEMBER !!! Sometimes you don’t even need any hair accessories. If you are trying to achieve a very City Chic wedding, these hair styles don’t always need anything – Simple is best!
