When it comes to your bridal look, everything centers around the wedding gown. The next order of business: accessories. Whether you’re a bohemian, modern, or traditional bride, shoes and jewelry are likely the next areas of focus. And then, your beauty look! From makeup to nails and hair. When you’ve hit on this stage in the bridal planning process, hair accessories are a category not to be overlooked. They’re basically jewelry for your hair—what’s not to love about that?
Yes, flower crowns are an extremely popular trend when it comes to hair accessories, but if a floral wreath or halo of leaves doesn’t sound like your taste, there are plenty of other hair accessories to consider. For classic brides, a headband, comb, or tiara with pearls is timeless and chic—you truly can’t go wrong with pearls when working with a bridal white palette. For bohemian brides craving something other than a flower crown, looks to hairpins, hair vines, or clips with blossoms, branch motifs, or leaves. You can even go for a clip or comb with real flowers (or even succulents!) if you like the idea of a flower crown but want something a little more toned down. A hairpiece with rhinestones or feathers is perfect for the glamorous bride while sleek and sculptural pieces in gold or silver suits ultra-modern tastes.
Another way to incorporate a hair accessory is with your rehearsal dinner or bridal shower look. A glittering hair comb or set, gleaming gold headband, or set of pearl-adorned bobby pins is a feminine and romantic way to amp up your bridal beauty routine. Plus, it’s a perfect way to distinguish your bridal aesthetic from your regular fashion routine and is a way to get several uses out of an incredibly special hair piece.
The best thing about a hair accessory is that it truly ties your bridal look together, especially if you opt for simple jewelry and shoes that won’t be seen from under your dress. Of course, your bridal hairstyle is a factor in what type of hair accessory is right for you, but many can be versatile enough to be worn with your hair up, down, or half up. So if you find a hair accessory you really love, you can most certainly figure out a way to wear it!
