How do I wear a bridal hair wire?
We often get asked by our brides for something a little less formal for their hair. I think maybe the days of the stiff formal tiara are over. These pretty hair vines are a lovely addition to any wedding dress, as they offer a softer less structured look.
The great thing about hair vines is that they can be worn with hair up or hair down. Here's a great example of a simple silver hair wire being worn with hair up. The hair wire is placed just above the plait in the hair for extra emphasis.
Hair wires look particularly lovely with hair up half down, particularly with a wave for a boho look.
They also look good woven into a plait, for a different take on hair half up half down.
Hair wires which incorporate pearl and crystal like the ones pictured are particularly popular. This is Mia which you can purchase for just £9.99 on our website. We have a large selection of gold and silver hair vines.
Some hair wires come with ribbon attached so they can be tied into the hair. Others have a loop at either end so that they can easily be pinned in.
Hair vines comes in a variety of styles, gold or silver, crystal or pearl. it will depend on what detail you have on your dress. Consider what other jewellery you are wearing, are you wearing earrings, which incorporate any of these elements? Do you have a lot of detail on your dress, which you want to match? Or is your gown very simple and elegant, so that you want to keep your hair accessories in the same vein?
Consider the length of hair wire that you will need. This Super Long Hair Wire pictured opposite is very popular if you have longer hair, and wish to incorporate a long loose plait down the back into your hair style. It features pearl and crystal detailing all the way down.
Finally, don't be afraid to ask your hairdresser for advice. They will be able to advise you on what you need to make the hairstyle that you want work. Take pictures from Pinterest that you like, this will make it easier to explain what you really want.
