Wedding Hairband vs. Wedding Hair Comb, Which should I wear ?

This week we are going to tackle a question that we are often asked – should I wear a comb or a hairband? The first point is comfort, some women find hairbands can feel tight on the head so a comb is preferable and then secondly some feel they don’t have thick enough hair to hold a comb. There are solutions to both issues.

Firstly choose a hairband that is narrow – we only use 2mm flexible hairbands – so light you won’t know you’re wearing them. If you don’t like the look of a full hairband you can opt for a ribbon covered version so all you really see is the detail on the side/top. Hairbands can give a sense of security so you won’t have to worry every time someone hugs you !

If you like the idea of a comb but are not sure you have enough hair we have found that hairdressers can make a setting for the comb to sit into – basically some backcombing and the right products will create a type of ‘nest’ effect to give your comb something to grip to.

Some great examples below:

The Cezanne Comb          The Nessa Comb                 The Mimosa 



Many of our hair accessories these days use alligator style clips to the back which are suitable for all hair types and grip particularly well. These can be very useful if you are planning to wear a veil and then later in the evening replace it with a hair accessory yourself.

Top trending Wedding Hair Vines This Year
Top trending Wedding Hair Vines This Year

July 30, 2021

Wedding hair vines are very on trend this year, but if you are asking yourself “What’s a wedding hair vine?”, let us explain. Wedding hair vines are long, flexible head pieces made on thin twisted wire that can be shaped to any design required to suit your hairstyle. Wedding hair vines generally don’t have any combs attached to them and can easily be pinned into your hair wherever needed. This gives them the flexibility to be worn with many different hairstyles.
So, how should you wear your wedding hair vine...
First, decide on how you will be wearing your hair; will you be wearing your hair down, in a long loose braid? Hair vines also look fantastic in half up half down hairstyles. Simply secure into the section of your hair that is pinned up, and then gentle curve down through your loose waves. If you are wearing your hair in a loose plait, the hair vine can simply be plaited into your hair as it is done.
As we mentioned hair vines are a very big trend for this year and here are our top selling wedding hair vines so far...

Jodie Crystal Earrings
You’ll be wearing your statement earrings all say so not only do they need to be beautiful they need to be practical too. If you don’t often wear long drop earrings it might be a good idea to wear your earrings at home behind closed doors for a  few days to be sure you get on with them.
Consider any other accessories you'll be wearing or the details of your wedding dress when choosing your earrings. If your dress has embellishments, you might like to opt for earrings that coordinate with them.
Create balance
Don’t forget that your whole outfit should be balanced, if you want to wear a glamorous pair of statement earrings, don’t rush to wear lots of other accessories, alternatively if you opt for subtle wedding earrings you can then choose to wear lots of other pieces too, our Alisha, Freshwater Pearl Silver Earrings are perfect for this.
