Once you know the style of dress you’re going to wear on the big day, the next step is to choose the perfect hairstyle that will elevate your dress even higher. Your hairstyle should complement the style of the dress and your personal style, so that you look absolutely gorgeous but feel comfortable at the same time.

TWO | How to choosing a bridal head comb.

Bridal hair combs are classically elegant, and can be worn by all brides to add a hint of shimmer or sparkle to a beautiful bridal look. It can be lots of fun finding the perfect match for a wedding dress with so many different options to choose from. To get started brides might want to think about…

  • Precious metals – Bridal hair combs come in shining gold, silver, or rose gold finishes. Choose the right metal tone that matches with the wedding dress and bridal jewelry for continuity throughout the overall look.
  • It’s the little things – Available in a variety of sizes, brides will find an ideal bridal hair comb to match their personal style.  If the comb is to be worn as a standalone item, a larger design can be worn as a beautiful statement piece. Smaller hair combs partner well with wedding veils, giving the bride the option to remove her veil after the ceremony and still look stunning.
  • Styles – Accent your bridal look with a range of bridal hair comb styles to suit your personality. For example, if you’re going for a vintage look, a hair comb adorned with flowers, leaves, lace, or pearls is a perfect accent piece. If you prefer a romantic theme, a comb featuring a floral pattern or delicate crystals easily adds elegance. To make a bolder statement, consider selecting a larger hair comb featuring oversized rhinestones or floral embellishments.
