Choose The Right Hair Accessory
Picking out the right head piece can often be tricky.
Hair accessories can sometimes be like a piece of clothing that looks great on the rack, and then once you actually try it on it fits funky in certain places. I know we have all been there before.
Heck that's why I opt to online shop anymore so I don't have to face the defeat of going into a clothing store!
Choosing the right accessory, especially for your wedding, takes patience, time, and sometimes even extra help. Here are a few tips that I have learned over the years, so keep them in mind before purchasing your headband, hair clip, or pin!
Flatter Your Face
When choosing a hair accessory, you have to keep in mind your overall face shape. If you are unsure of what face shape you have, refer to my previous blog referencing face shapes and veils.
Wider face shapes can wear wider combs, tiaras, and headbands that sit up on top of the head, while smaller faces should opt for a more narrow comb, or smaller pins. Its all about proportion!
Trick The Trends
I'm sure as you know planning a wedding, there are so many fun different trends to choose from and add into your special day. All of these can be great, but when choosing your style, wear what you love not what is popular.
Be yourself, and when you look back on your wedding photos, you want to feel that your style was perfect for you and that you made the right choice! Remember, classic beauty is priceless!
Go With Your Theme
Pick a head piece that complements your gown and your personality.
If your are having an informal beach wedding, a pinned flower or a seashell clip will suit your free flowing gown and theme. If you find yourself having a more classic wedding of a black tie event, a timeless tiara would be stunning!
Keep Color In Mind
If you have solid dark hair with no dimension added from highlights or baliage, you can wear more of a bold piece that has a bit more bling and sparkle.
Softer complexions and pale skin often look better with accessories such as pearls, tulle, or lace pieces. Light and airy!
Don't Let The Accessory Outshine You
Although you may be struck by the shine and sparkle of a hair piece, keep in mind when you look at yourself in the mirror you do not want to be distracted from it.
I hope you find help from all these simple tips and tricks, but most importantly remember that this is your day, and as a stylist I want you to feel comfortable and look beautiful!
Until next time my gorgeous friends,
