How to style a ribbon tie headband – one of THE most comfortable and versatile wedding hair accessories!

A ribbon tie bridal headband is perfect for brides looking for a delicate and feminine wedding hair accessory – with the added bonus of being one of the most comfortable and versatile headpieces you’ll find!

Whether you choose to make a feature of the delicate ribbons, letting them hang long and loose or weaving them into a bridal braid, or tuck the ends away into your up-do so they can’t be seen, a ribbon tie headband is one of the most comfortable ways you can wear a wedding hair accessory.

A ribbon tie headpiece is a fantastic alternative to a traditional metal headband which some people find can dig or pinch their head if they’re not covered with a satin wrap – and can be more secure than a comb or clip if you have fine, thin or short hair.

Ribbon tie headbands can be worn in so many ways to create different looks – wear them tied across your forehead with the ribbon tied at the back of your head to create a 1920s or whimsical bohemian bridal look, or place them in the traditional Alice band position to build a more classic wedding day style. My ribbon tie headbands have detachable ribbons which mean you can easily slip them out of the loops at each end and pin them into the back or side of the head or even trail them down or through a braided hairstyle.

One of the prettiest ways to wear a ribbon tie wedding headband is to place it just above the hairline – anywhere from one to two centimetres above it – so it sits in ‘tiara’ position, creating a really beautiful look which will update the traditional tiara look.

There are even more ways to style my hand-wired ribbon tie headbands as the ribbons are simply threaded through hidden loops at each end of the headpiece. All you have to do is slip the ribbons out of their loops and the piece can be pinned into your hair through the loops like a hair vine nestled into the back of an up-do or half-up wedding hair style.

Going for a headband with removable ribbon ties means you can create more than one look on your wedding day with just one headpiece. Why not wear it in the back of your hair or in tiara position as you walk down the aisle and say your vows and then pin or tie it across your forehead for a more glamorous evening look? This is also a great option if you won't have a hairstylist on hand for part or all of your wedding and celebrations - a ribbon tie headband is easy to put on yourself while more intricate styles can be created with the help of a friend or hairstylist if you have someone who can help.

Another way to create a really bohemian look is to pin the ribbon tie headband into place and leave the ribbons trailing at the side of your head for a relaxed and truly ethereal bridal style.

You can create a really unique look by swapping out the ribbons that come with your hairvine for your very own choice of colour or material - try mixing ribbons of different types to create more texture and interest – such as organza, satin, velvet or lace.
