Feathers, Pearls, Combs or Veils - Wedding Hair

Wedding day hair. The most important thing to remember is not to go overboard. You want to look like "you" on your special day. Dress your hair up so it reflects your personality. The "natural" days of plain straight hair are finally ending as today's bride looks for "more." More fun, more beauty, and more individuality are what brides are in search of. And a little hair bling helps.

Celebrity hairstyles are great to look at when planning your hairstyle as well. Of course it helps that celebrities are everywhere, but the latest celebrity hairstyles are a useful source of inspiration because celebrities are usually on the cutting-edge of what's new and trendy- it's their job (after all) to make sure that limelight doesn't fade away. And, another great tool ... check out Last but not least: Check out The Hairstylist and View Yourself in Over 8,000 Hairstyles!these fabulously simply hair adornments.

Black is back!

This tiara is perfect for the Modern bride who has a gown with black accents. The side detailing measures 4 inches long and 1 ¾ inches wide along a 14-inch rhinestone studded band.

An artistic and abstract arrangement of rhinestones sits to one side of this rhinestone encrusted headband. Pin loops are located at each end to allow you to secure the tiara easily to your hair with bobby pins.

This headband is intricately designed with loads of white feathers to form an extraordinary side spray, along with Swarovski crystals and Austrian rhinestones. The side spray measures about 6 1/2 inches at it longest point along a 15-inch rhinestone curved band.
Advice for Picking Your Hair Piece:
  • Pick your gown first
  • Decide on a hairstyle
  • Then, choose the headpiece

You don't have to buy the headpiece that matches or supposedly "goes" with the dress. Buy one that suits you and "complements" your dress; whether it be pearls, fefathers or a veil. Tip: Match the flowers in your bouquet if you want to add some color.
