The Best Bridal Hair Accessories That Work For Any Hairstyle

When it comes to planning your wedding day, the finishing touches can truly make all the difference to your bridal look. You might have chosen the dress, the makeup, the hairstyle, but something’s missing, and you can’t put your finger on it. Bridal hair accessories might be the answer, and occasionally, the right accessory can have you reconsidering which hairstyle you want. Maybe you’ve found something really special that you’d love to wear in your hair and are simply wondering how to incorporate it. At Twidale, there’s nothing we love more than helping our brides feel glamorous. Here’s what our stylists recommend for incorporating bridal hair accessories.


#1 Dried or fresh flowers

Going for a bohemian chic look for your special day? You can’t go past flowers as a bridal hair accessory. They look dainty, elegant, and pair especially well with beach waves, up-do’s and braids. Flower accessories are specifically unique because you can arrange a florist to have these made up for you with your favourite flowers. You can also DIY your own flower pins or buy them pre-made from Etsy. If you’re planning to wear a veil, you need to be mindful of placement. Ensure that your flowers are either pinned where the veil pin is, or placed in the hair so that the weight of the veil doesn’t crush any of the flowers. And if you want the flowers to last well into the night, it’s a good idea to have more than one flower hairpiece so that you can swap them out for photos ensuring they look pristine.



#2 Bejewelled Hair Pins

Who doesn’t love a bit of sparkle on their wedding day? Bejewelled hair pins are the most versatile of all the bridal hair accessories in this list. You can add these in and around any style of up-do, including chignons, buns, half-up styles or naturally styled hair. There are plenty of hair pin styles that include various embellishments, including pearls, rhinestones, glitter, and sculpted metals. If you’re inclined towards the less-is-more approach, simply adding one of these could be the finishing touch your hairstyle needed.


#3 Bridal headbands

This one is for our fashion-savvy brides that are looking for an accessory to add a wow factor. From sparkly and loud, to subtle and sleek, there are so many different bridal headbands to choose from. They’re easy to place under a veil, and can help keep those pesky flyaways in place. Floral headbands are a beautiful way to balance an intricately layered dress with a simple hairstyle. If you’re looking for something more traditional, opt for a satin or lace finish. Keep in mind that if you’re wanting to incorporate a headband, your best wedding hairstyle options are either a sleek slicked back look or soft hairstyle with loose waves framing your face.


#4 Pearl claws

For our classic brides looking for something a little more modern yet relaxed, pearls are the way to go. They’re simple, timeless and the perfect minimalist addition for any hair type. Using a pearl claw to hold a sleek ponytail is our favourite way to incorporate this accessory. The texture of the pearls complete silk or satin dresses incredibly well. You can find pearls in an array of colours and sizes to complement your dress, whether it is champagne-coloured, blush or off-white. If your scalp is sensitive, you’ll definitely want to consider using pearl claw accessories instead of pins. This is because wide-tooth prongs hold the hair without pulling your scalp as taught. Unlike other bridal hair accessories, this is one that you can reuse to wear time and time again.


#5 Crystal Crowns and Headpieces

For our show-stopping brides, one of our favourite bridal accessories to add to up-dos this year are headpieces that are placed at the back of the head. They create a lovely focal point for any simple hairstyle and will certainly turn heads as you walk down the aisle. Brides also love to pin these over where their veil is pinned in place. Unique from other bridal hair accessories, crystal crowns and headpieces can be an investment that gets passed down generations.
