Every girl dreams of looking like a princess on her wedding day and carefully selects the appropriate jewelry. An integral part of the image of any princess-bride is a diadem that adorns her hair. What types of tiaras exist, how to choose the right option for a hairstyle and how to securely fix the jewelry in your hair — all this in our article.
History of appearance
A sophisticated accessory appeared in ancient Greece, and the ancient Greek goddess Hera is considered the discoverer of the diadem. It was on her images that a spectacular decoration always flaunted in her hair. In those days, such an accessory was considered a luxury item, so only girls and women from wealthy families wore it.
Nowadays, there are many varieties of diadems., and almost any girl can afford one or another type of accessory. Elegant jewelry is chosen for their wedding images not only by celebrities, but also by ordinary girls. In addition, this spectacular accessory can be called independent and versatile, since it can be used without a veil.
Types of decoration
The assortments of jewelry houses and accessories stores are so large that you can find many varieties of tiaras for every taste. For example, girls who prefer natural precious stones and metals will suit jewelry made of gold, silver and precious stones. Silver models and products made of white gold look elegant, jewelry made of a yellow variety of metal will be brighter.
Stones also play an important role: with silver, the diadem will be more restrained and elegant, and with colored ones — more spectacular and unusual. It is worth noting that these types of jewelry have a rather high cost and are not suitable for every girl.
A more affordable option are accessories made from ordinary metals and stones that have nothing to do with jewelry. But this does not mean that they will be somewhat inferior in appearance and quality — such decorations look just as good.
Tiaras differ not only in the materials used in their manufacture, but also in size, fastening methods, color and location of decorative stones. The most spectacular is the decoration, reminiscent of the appearance of the royal crown. Typically, such a diadem is quite large and is decorated with symmetrically arranged large stones. These varieties are also called tiaras.
It is worth noting that a product in the form of a crown can be small in size, and small crystals are used as decoration in such cases.
Long tiaras look very unusual and incredibly feminine. Usually such accessory options are suitable for girls with long hair. The product is attached on top of the head and smoothly descends along the entire length of the hair, gracefully weaving into the hairstyle.
For other hairstyles, there are diadems attached at the back, and models of jewelry lowered onto the forehead.
What settings are suitable?
One or another type of diadem is suitable for almost any styling, the main thing is to choose the right size and securely fasten it.
An accessory in the form of a headband, attached to the top of the head, is suitable both for loose hair and for hairstyles with a parting or bangs and a pile on the back of the head. Thus, the decoration focuses on a smooth transition to the main volume of the hairstyle and favorably emphasizes the proportions of the face. And the right choice of the color of the stones will even help shade the eyes and makeup.
Carelessly collected curls and high buns do not always harmoniously combine with large accessories, therefore, thin elegant tiaras, which, when attached, slightly descend onto the forehead, will be an ideal option for such hairstyles. This accessory looks very gentle and is the easiest to mount.
For low buns or voluminous hairstyles, collected from large curls, jewelry with a fastening at the back is perfect. Usually they are a rather dense chain with stones and decorative metal elements in the form of leaves and flowers. The product is fastened with invisible hairpins and hairpins and perfectly emphasizes the tenderness and elegance of a voluminous hairstyle.
We select according to the length of the hair
When choosing a hairstyle and accessory, it is important to consider the length of the bride’s hair. For example, a long tiara, which is distributed along the entire length of the hair, will not suit girls with short hair and medium-length curls, and a small jewelry can be lost in a thick mop of long hair. A few step-by-step master classes on creating hairstyles with tiaras for hair of different lengths are presented below.
The choice of hairstyles for short hair is small, since it is hardly possible to build a voluminous ponytail with curls or an air bun from short hair (unless you resort to the use of artificial strands).
Most often, as a wedding hairstyle for short hair, girls opt for neat airy curls of medium size. It is important that the hair is not just curled, because this way the hairstyle will lose volume — you need to gently comb and stretch the curl, making it more airy.
For such hairstyles, tiaras-tiaras with a fastening, like a headband, are suitable.
Girls with medium length hair are much easier to decide on a hairstyle than owners of short haircuts.
The most popular wedding hairstyle this season is the air bun, which can be either low, medium or high, depending on the wishes of the bride. Creating this hairstyle is not as difficult as it might seem at first glance — you only need a few additional elements:
- voluminous hair roller.
And the most suitable accessory for such a hairstyle would be a tiara with a back mount.
First you need to determine the height of the beam and, having separated part of the hair, tie a tight tail, then put a roller on it and secure it with invisibility. The rest of the hair needs to be combed, creating a basal volume, and fixed next to the top of the roller.
Then you need to curl loose hair on a thin or thick curling iron, stretch the curls, giving them airiness and fix them with pins into the mesh surface of the roller. It is very important to use hairpins so that they are not visible in the hair, then it will look not only neat and tidy, but also light and airy.
Gradually, you need to fix the loose hair curl by curl, forming them into a voluminous bun, after which you need to fix the hairstyle with hairspray and complement it with a diadem.
It is best to place it at the upper base of the beam, fixing it with strong invisible hairpins.
In most cases, owners of long luxurious hair prefer not to hide the length of their hair, but to emphasize it with voluminous curls.
This is the reason for the popularity of wedding hairstyles with flowing curly tails and long tiaras.
To create this type of hairstyle, you will need all the same materials as for the buns, but with one condition: the mesh roller must be dissolved so that it is a long mesh in the form of a soft tube, then rolled up and later fixed at the base of the tail.
Separate part of the hair and fix the tail at the desired level. Then you need to fix the roller and the remaining hair, after giving them volume. Next, you need to curl the curls, give them airiness and fix them with hairpins, giving the tail the desired shape.
The advantage of a long diadem is that when creating this hairstyle, you can fix a part at the beginning of the head, and weave the rest into the tail. So the wedding hairstyle will turn out more spectacular and tender.
There are several luxurious examples of wedding hairstyles with tiaras:
- the option with an openwork tail made of voluminous curls with a long diadem will allow any girl to feel like a real princess on her wedding day;
- a pearl diadem, located in the forehead area, will add more charm and mystery to the image, and voluminous curls, neatly laid back, will look very harmonious and neat;
- loose hair with voluminous curls or a Hollywood wave can also be a great option for a wedding hairstyle, and a rather large tiara with decor in the form of small gems will perfectly complement the look;
- a small tiara jewelry will perfectly fit into a hairstyle with a low bun, small volume and loose curls in the front.
