You’ve already selected the perfect wedding dress and picked out gorgeous wedding jewelry to coordinate with it. Now, it’s time to figure out what to do about your hair on the big day. Fortunately for brides everywhere, professional hairstylists can help you look and feel your best when tying the knot. Whether you’re posing for wedding photos or dancing the night away, you want your hair to stay in place. If your hair tends to have a mind of its own, or if you’d simply like to add some bling during your event, you may want to consider using one or more of these helpful accessories in your wedding hair: pins, combs or clips.
Consider your desired hairstyle, overall wedding theme and the exact hue and style of your wedding dress when selecting your wedding hair accessories. Because there are plenty of accessories to choose from, there shouldn’t be any problem creating a cohesive (and gorgeous!) bridal look.
Wedding pins provide a popular and romantic way to decorate your hair. No matter which hairstyle you ultimately decide on – whether it’s a top knot, low chignon or loose curls – bridal hair pins can add a whimsical touch. Brides often use wedding pins in a tousled hairstyle, but they can also be used on smooth, sleek hair. Use a simple, single pin for a light accent, or multiple pins for an altogether different effect. Fortunately, you can find hair pins in a variety of styles, with attractive embellishments made from materials like crystal, pearl and opal.
Wedding combs are another great way to accessorize your hair. These are generally larger than wedding pins, and therefore capable of making a bolder statement. Wedding combs can secure and enhance various types of updos. For example, you can place a wedding comb just above a low chignon. Alternatively, you can find side combs that attractively hold hair back and away from the face. Because wedding combs are designed for brides, they often have floral or botanical motifs and come in various shades of bridal colors: from bright white tones to ivory, champagne or blush hues.
Wedding clips, or bridal barrettes, are very similar to wedding combs and can be used in much the same way. The main difference, of course, is that they have a clip instead of a comb to secure them to your hair.
