For those brides with cute bobs, the headband will show off your haircut and make it even more darling. For ladies with longer locks, a luxe headband can set off a stylish updo or add an accent to flowing, loose waves. Plus, a headband (especially one on the glam side) can have just as much personality as a tiara or a veil. Above, this beaded band has so much texture--it would be gorgeous with a 1920s inspired dress.
The easiest way for a headband to go formal? Crystal detailing, of course. These next few headbands are all about the shiny sparkles, from flowers (above) to fan clusters (below). For a charming and more casual touch, opt for a headband that has a ribbon tie like the one below. It is gives off a soft vibe that complements an equally romantic dress.
Don't forget to experiment with scale when you are deciding on the perfect bridal headband. If you already know how you are wearing your hair, the perfect time to go shopping for headbands is right after your test run at the salon. Otherwise, style your hair down, and bring hair ties to try out accessories with your hair up, as well. This fuller, ivy-inspired headband (above) rejuvenates an otherwise pretty basic chignon. And for the bride below, who wanted to show off her lovely waves, a thinner headband was in order to give just enough sparkly detail without overpowering her look.
But, of course, glamour doesn't solely belong to those that are jeweled. Gold and velvet accents are all the rage this season. Bridesmaids will love these golden leaves (above) running down one side of this stylish headband. If you are having a more modern wedding, embrace the latest bow trend with oversized, jewel-toned velvet headbands (below, left). From boho to Art Deco, this velvet and feather headband is pretty amazing, especially with shorter hairstyles (below, right).
And don't leave the littlest lady out of all the luxurious fun. Give her something to add a little pizazz to her cute curls (below).
