Our gorgeous Amixi bridal hair accessories are perfect whether you’re after a dash of subtle sparkle or plenty of glitz and glamour. It’s totally up to you! So, whether you want just a scattering of stylish pins or a beautiful boho garland, you’ve come to right place. Here are our stylists top tips for finding the right hair accessories to suit your style…
Be inspired by your dress
All of your accessories need to complement the main event; your beautiful dress. So, if you’ve gone for a sleek modern style, you might like to add some glitz. Alternatively, if your dress is heavily embellished, then just one or two simple accessories may work better.
Choose your hairstyle
Knowing how you want your hair will help you choose the right hair accessory to suit. For example, if you’re wearing your hair down you’ll most likely need a lighter comb or clip, unless you’re blessed with beautiful thick hair. If you’re going for a neat bun or updo it can probably take the weight of a heavier, more dramatic accessory.
See it from all angles
As you did with your dress, make sure you know what it looks like from every angle. Ask the sales assistant to take snaps on your phone to help.
Where you place your hair accessories can change your look from contemporary to classic in an instant. Try them in different places to find the right positioning for you.
Below we’ve picked some our favourite types of hair accessories to help you chose. Also, for more expert advice, head to your nearest WED2B store where our staff can help you try on different hair accessories, offer styling tips, suggest matching items and much more…
Hair slides, like our beautiful Evie design, are a very versatile choice. Light enough for fine hair, they can be clipped into an updo or a half up/half down style. They can also be worn on one side for a touch of contemporary chic. We love Evie’s ivory pearls, crystals and gems, as well as the hand-painted, silver-plated leaf pieces that give it a super luxurious feel.
Alternatively, for a more autumnal feel, try Safia, which features delicate leaf and floral details complemented with beads, pearls and crystals.
The leaf and branch-like details are also mouldable, making this slide easy to style in different hairstyles.
The latest trend for brides, hair vines or garlands are big news. Perfect for a romantic or boho chic look, they can be moved into different shapes to accent any hairstyle. Our Calli hair garlands, which are available in either gold or ivory, look stunning twisted through a beautiful plait or a wavy updo.
Gold, ivory or silver?
The general rule of thumb is to make sure you stay consistent with your tones. If you’re going for golden hair accessories for example, just make sure any other adornments match.
If you’d prefer a simple, understated style with just a dash of sparkle, then hair pins could be the look for you. Our silver Honey pins are floral and feminine and set with sparkling gems in a delicate shape. They comes in a set of three too, so they’re great value and super easy to style.
Combs work best accenting an updo at the back or side of the head but can also be worn with the hair down and swept to the side. Our Lorelei comb is available in either rose gold or ivory and features a stylish leafy design decorated with clear beads, crystals and gems. There is also exquisite hand-painted silver plated leaf pieces to finish the look.
Alternatively, Odetta has a slightly more elegant and sophisticated feel, perfect for a classically traditional wedding. It features pearls, gems and crystals and looks dreamy as part of an updo with one of our Amixi veils.
Finally, we have our beautiful Sophie halo. Halos are super romantic and look amazing as part of a vintage or boho style wedding. Available in either blush or ivory, Sophie features delicate silky flowers, pearl details and a soft ribbon fastening. It’s the finishing touch that will ensure your flower girls look as pretty as a picture!
