Wedding hairstyles with a veil
The bride on her main day should be impeccable. For this not enough expensive outfit and appropriate attributes, you need to correctly choose a hairstyle. For several seasons, the popularity of hairstyles with a diadem and a veil has not subsided. Such a luxurious accessory will make the bride feel like a real queen.
History of the tiara
The appearance of the accessory originates in ancient Greece. There, priests wore similar accessories, interpreting them as ritual bandages. Later, the decoration began to be used by monarchs as a symbol of power. The fabric material was replaced with precious metals, and the round shape became open.
After some time, the jewelry became an attribute of the highest nobility, and only then passed into the status of women’s accessories. The peak of the popularity of jewelry came in the 18th century. These small crowns were designed to emphasize the nobility and financial well-being of their owners, therefore they were covered with complex patterns of gold or silver.
At present, the diadem has lost the function of emphasizing the status of the hostess. However, this accessory, even if it is made of ordinary decorated metal, is able to enliven any hairstyle and add luxury to the wedding look.
Types of decoration
In its classic form, the diadem resembles a crown, but with an open base. The highest point of the product is located exactly in the middle of the head, gradually decreasing, diverging towards the edges. This decoration can be quite massive or, conversely, very miniature, barely noticeable under the veil.
Another type of diadem is the tiara. It is a one-piece construction of the same height over the entire diameter. There are accessory options designed for fastening from the back of the head or from the side. This is done so that beautiful curls do not fall into the face of the bride, and the sparkle of precious stones does not switch attention from the bride’s face to a shining accessory.
Ferronières are jewelry in the form of an elegant chain or hoop., going to the forehead. As a rule, they are equipped with a “droplet” of precious stones, pearls or artificial flowers. Accessories can be attached to the wedding hairstyle vertically (like a standard hoop) or horizontally (like a crown). In order for the styling not to fall apart throughout the wedding day, many brides prefer tiaras fastened with combs.
The appearance of the jewelry is selected in accordance with the individual preferences of the bride. The tiara can be made of expensive materials or jewelry, including precious stones (diamonds) and Swarovski crystals or standard plastic beads. The same applies to patterns: geometric shapes, floral ornaments, fantasy ligature.
If you plan to decorate your hair for a wedding with a veil and a diadem, then the main thing in this situation is to choose the right hairstyle. Voluminous wedding hairstyles with a diadem and a veil will give the bride’s image more femininity. It is better if the styling is done in the form of a pretty bun, babette, pigtail, folded into a ring, and the diadem is equipped with a comb. The decoration should be quite voluminous so as not to get lost in the hair. The style of the veil is also important so that there is no sense of visual imbalance. When choosing a wedding accessory, you should remember the rule: the more voluminous the decoration, the more modest and stricter the veil should be (one or two tiers or a veil).
A small accessory a la crown will look good with long flowing hair or in the context of a smooth hairstyle for long hair. Curls should be large, beautifully styled, like Hollywood, falling over the shoulders or raised. Numerous curls running around the perimeter of the entire head are unacceptable.
Jewelry intended for decor, loose curls or smooth styling should not be large and contain bright decorative elements (fresh flowers, feathers), as this will greatly overload the image. And also do not oversaturate the hairstyle with other decorative elements. All accessories used must match the color of the base and style.
For owners of curls, it is recommended to choose elegant tiaras. In a company with such decoration (without unnecessary decorative elements and visual massiveness), it is good to use a multi-tiered veil.
A Greek-style hairstyle, complemented by a diadem and a veil, will add more romance to the bride’s wedding look.
Brides with bangs are advised to follow additional recommendations so as not to turn their hairstyle into bad taste. It is impossible to allow the jewelry to be on the hairline. For this you need:
- constantly make sure that a wide hairy area always remains between the frontal part and the decoration;
- lay the bangs in such a way that it does not interfere with the diadem;
- give preference to a narrow accessory that goes over the forehead.
The type of hairstyle is primarily determined by the length and thickness of the hair. From a luxurious mop of hair, you can braid, and then elegantly style a lush braid or curl chic curls. Thin hair of medium length looks neat in a lush bun or snail. To give the image of naturalness, you should release a few curly strands from the hairstyle. The latter can be replaced with bangs.
Tiara for short hair — a rather difficult case, since the accessory, with a successful selection, can add expressiveness to the look of the bride, and in the case of an unsuccessful purchase, spoil it. In order for a short haircut to look harmonious with a diadem, the latter should not have large decorative inserts. The best option is a one-piece hoop, feronnieres and elegant chains.
Consider what trends are relevant this season.
For the bride
Today, the bride for the wedding ceremony can choose a hairstyle with a diadem in any style: traditional, romantic, retro, country, bohemian, youth, Greek, vamp. In order for the jewelry to look organic in the hair, you need to remember the rule: for brunettes and fiery red brides, a diadem with light, beautifully iridescent stones is suitable, and for blondes — jewelry with crystals in light pastel colors.
Among the latest fashion trends is to decorate the bride’s head with a diadem with blue stones and pomegranate. Tiaras with pearls in a silver or gold frame are very much in demand among brides. Metal at will can be chosen more modest. In any case, such decoration will add tenderness and charm to the bride. Similar mother-of-pearl pebbles on a wedding dress will add harmony to the image. The original diadem can be made of beads or flowers, with your own hands or with the help of experienced craftsmen.
For a girlfriend
Decoration at a wedding in the form of a diadem is the prerogative of the bride, however, if you really want to decorate your hair with a similar accessory, expert advice should be taken into account.
- The tiara should be thin so as not to overshadow the bride’s jewelry. Such an elegant accessory will look elegant on loose curls, in a high bun, a Greek hairstyle or a voluminous braid.
- The tiara can be decorated with fresh flowers (one large bud or a couple of small ones).
- If there are stones in the accessory, they should be of medium size and, as it were, be buried in the hair (any high styling will do).
- It is very fashionable for girlfriends to use colored veils in combination with a diadem. This hairstyle echoes the image of the bride. However, it is better if all the bridesmaids of the bride and groom support a similar style so that there is no noticeable contrast between the bride and another young lady with a veil.
- Tiaras of girlfriends can be decorated with medium-sized pearls, but the latter should only slightly stand out from under the curls (spiral, zigzag, careless).
- A bridesmaid can decorate with a tiara not only her chic loose hair, but also a hairstyle in the form of a high or low ponytail, a Greek-style braid.
Parse step by step
For brides with thick hair, making a hairstyle with a diadem is quite simple. It is enough to curl large curls, and then freely dissolve them. In this case, the decoration is fixed with invisibility, and a veil is attached to the ends of the diadem. If loose curls are not an option for you, you can stab the curls with the same invisibility on the sides of the head, slightly lifting the strands (such as a cascade) at the temples so that the shoulders and neck are visible.
Greek hairstyle, especially in tandem with a themed tunic dress, is very popular at wedding ceremonies. It’s pretty easy to create. A straight cut is made. The strands are combed back, forming a slight elevation in the center of the head. This elevation can be created naturally, using a pile, or put a flat overlay under the strands. Combed curls can be freely dissolved or taken into a long roller. For the last option, you need an elastic band.
The diadem in the Greek hairstyle is chosen in the form of a modest rim (often with flowers), located in the immediate vicinity of the frontal region. You can choose an accessory that crosses the forehead and is fastened with hairpins in the temporal areas on both sides.
Wedding fashion refers to the trends of the mid-twentieth century, when at the peak of popularity were multi-format rollers: round, semicircular, side, elongated, at the back of the head or in the center of the head. This hairstyle, combined with a veil and a diadem, looks very impressive. If you decorate a high babette, made in the center of the head, with a diadem, it will give the image of the bride tenderness, femininity and royalty. Visually “stretches” growth, opens a charming neck and shoulders.
The tiara with floral motifs on a high beam looks incredibly gentle and harmonious, echoing the pattern with the edging of the veil. A rather wide tiara with Swarovski crystals looks regal.
For lovers of luxury, voluminous tiaras with floral motifs will suit. Another trend of recent seasons is feronnieres. Pearl jewelry, which goes over the forehead, gives the image of the bride a somewhat oriental flavor. Shy women can choose an accessory made of plain metal, decorated with butterfly figures on the sides.
A wedding tiara does not have to be decorated with stones. Lace, beads and sequins can become its basis. A diadem resembling a crown, decorated with large stones, looks luxurious.
The tiara-comb will organically fit into a high hairstyle with bangs.
