1. BE CLASH-CONSCIOUS
This one seems like an obvious place to start, but you’ll want to be careful to make sure that your bridal tiara, wedding vine or hair piece doesn’t clash with your dress. Remember, your tiara should enhance, not overpower your bridal look. Your dress is the statement, and your bridal tiara is simply the ‘cherry on top,’ not the ice cream.
2. PLACEMENT MATTERS
When talking about a bridal tiara, there is a golden rule to remember – no more than an inch and a half from your hairline. To check, first place your thumb on your chin and your index finger between your eyebrows. Then, move your hand up so that your thumb is between your eyebrows. Your index finger is now touching where the base of the tiara should rest.
3. CHOOSE A BRIDAL TIARA THAT COMPLEMENTS YOUR FACE
As a general rule of thumb, you should select a tiara with a structure that is opposite to your face shape. For instance, a pointy one will accentuate a long face, while a round, flat one may emphasize a moon-shaped face. Test shapes before selecting your preferred style to avoid this and get the look you want.
4. RESIST WASHING YOUR HAIR BEFORE WEARING YOUR BRIDAL TIARA
We get it – you want to be as fresh and clean as possible for your big day. However, that may be counterintuitive in regards to your bridal tiara. Because of added texture, having day-old hair will keep the tiara from slipping from your head during the ceremony.
5. BE SURE TO FINISH YOUR HAIRSTYLING BEFORE YOU PUT ON THE TIARA
This one sounds super obvious, but it’s also an important tip to point out: make sure to apply your hairspray before wearing the bridal tiara to avoid damage to the crown.
6. USE BOBBY PINS FOR A SECURE GRIP
For aesthetic purposes, ensure that the bobby pins are invisible so they won’t attract unwanted attention. Keep your tiara secure and your look in-tact!
7. GO OUT AND DAZZLE
Last but not least, be sure to go out and enjoy your big day as you flaunt your bridal tiara like a queen! After all, it’s your big day!
