Which bridal hairstyle gets your vote?

Wedding hairstyles come in all shapes and sizes, as do wedding hairstyle accessories! If you're planning to wear your hair loose as you walk down the aisle, you might be thinking about adding some extra detail with some barrettes or a headband. So, which option do you like best?

Bridal barrettes

A symmetrical hairstyle with matching barrettes on each side of the face is a simple yet very pretty hairstyle option for any bride-to-be with long or medium-length hair or even a chin-grazing bob cut! The middle part and romantic twists keep the look styled, but wearing it down ensures the 'do remains understated, too.

Styling tip

Don't let frizz or flyaways become an issue on your wedding day! To stop them in their tracks, apply a smoothing product such as Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream to damp hair before blow-drying.

Headband of honor

A headband, specifically something sparkly or floral, is a similarly beautiful accessory choice. It will keep the hair off your face while the lengths remain in full view, and most headband designs look gorgeous with every hair texture and length! You could even go for a tiara to make you feel really special.

Styling tip

Use a couple of carefully hidden bobby pins to keep your headband in place all day long. Spritz them with a little dry shampoo like Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray beforehand to give them extra grip.

What do you think? Which wedding hair accessory or accessories will you say "I do" to?
