Bridal Headbands may have been replaced by more fluid, forehead band designs and fabric hairpieces…but the modern bride still finds unique ways of wearing a headband to suit her individual bridal look! The traditional ways of wearing a headband have been replaced with novel ideas for styling this versatile hair accessory to complement modern wedding gowns and even more modern bridal hairstyles!
Firstly, the fabric style or vintage design bridal headband looks simply perfect worn with a birdcage or traditional veil. Add the birdcage to soften the overall look and add a vintage finishing touch; wear with a traditional ceremonial veil to create two different looks – one with the veil for the ceremony to add interest and then remove the veil for the evening reception for a sparkly headpiece to dance the night away!
Secondly, the bridal headbands of 2015 are styled with a Deco influence – they are made using lightweight materials and the detail is often crafted with beads or fabric so that the piece can be worn across the forehead in a 1920s inspired look. Forehead adornment is extremely popular to create a hint of vintage and complement a vintage wedding gown perfectly!
Thirdly, the bridal headband can be worn in the same way as a traditional tiara for a completely contemporary bridal look! Style the headband with a sleek, sophisticated updo or half up and down hairstyle to really enhance the detail in the piece. Whether you have chosen a pearl and crystal or just crystal design – the motifs incorporated in it be they vine, leaf, floral or geometric will look stunning against backcombed hair!
For brides who considered the bridal headbands an accessory of the past….get creative and research the right style of bridal headband to create an utterly contemporary finishing touch for your special day.
