Beautifying Your Wedding Hairstyle with Tiara Headbands

Many of today's modern brides embrace the opportunity to wear a bridal tiara headband or crown as part of their wedding day dress ensemble. In fact, this time-honored wedding hair accessory is a versatile yet simple way to add feminine style and "oomph" to your bridal hairstyle.

In my opinion, tiaras are romantic, soft and ethereal. As an added bonus, no matter if you choose to wear it with a statement veil or not, you'll create an effortless yet elegant vibe that is oh-so-bridal!

Tiara Hairstyles for Long Hair

When it comes to bridal hairstyles for long hair such as loose waves, low hanging buns or high up-dos, it's easy to find a classic position on top of your head where you can center a tiara and comfortably "pop" it into place.

Tiara Hairstyles for Short Hair

If short hairstyles suit you best, no problem! Consider styling a side sweep using bangs or soft waves to frame the front of your face, and if needed, create a little bit of volume at the crown to use as a base to securely fasten your tiara clip, pins, comb or headband.

Also, depending on the shape of your face, you may want to opt for a sleeker or smaller tiara headband or low profile bridal comb.

What's the difference between a tiara and a crown?

Truth be told, when our brides come to us, many of them use these terms interchangeably. However, a true crown is larger, higher, more formal and less versatile than the tiara since it is closed at the back. A tiara tends to be built on a flexible, comfortable wire base, has an open semi-circle shape, and can easily be adjusted to perfectly fit the width of your head. 


What's the best way to wear and secure a tiara?

As I said, tiaras are incredibly versatile and effortless to wear. Whether you choose to position it as a statement piece at the front of your bridal hairstyle, tucked around a bun, inserted at the back as a reverse crown or nestled into a half up half down look, it's easy to slide it into place and secure it using bobby pins or small wire-tooth combs to fasten the loops situated at both ends.
