Totally Doable: Pairing Wedding Headbands with Updos

You’ve seen this look on the Red Carpet on Hollywood sweethearts like Sandra Bullock and Sarah Jessica Parker, but maybe you haven’t considered it for your own bridal hairstyle. After all, common wisdom says that wedding headbands are for loose bridal hairstyles or half up, half down dos. But classic updos actually pair beautifully with wedding headbands, and there’s a long tradition of doing just that.

Wedding headbands come in all shapes and sizes, like the Tia pearl wedding headband shown in the lower right. It’s subtle enough to work with almost any updo you can think of. The Lucia filigree wedding headband, on the upper right, makes a bolder bridal statement with a classic vintage look featuring brilliant sparkling rhinestones. And for the boldest brides? We recommend the stunning Fiona crystal wedding headband with three bands and genuine hand-cut Swarovski crystals.

Three brides… wedding headbands three ways. Which look is your fave? This is an accessory that will take you from the aisle to the dance floor, whether you go for a full-on elegant updo or a glam retro ponytail. What’s particularly nice about headbands versus some other bridal hairpieces is that a wedding headband can actually give your updo some support. Hair that falls flat between the ceremony and reception? No way – not with a headband! So take a little inspiration from the celeb world and accentuate your wedding day hairstyle with a gorgeous wedding headband.
