Hairpins are a simple way to accessorise your wedding updo – and an easy way to create your own unique wedding hair style. Here, bridal hair accessories expert Debbie Carlisle takes a look at ways to style hairpins in an updo for lots of different bridal looks.
Small single element hairpins featuring crystal stars, mother of pearl flowers or simple pearls will create an understated look used sparingly or can be built up or used with other accessories to create a bolder look.
Large hairpins can be worn as a single delicate piece or placed together to create your own unique headpiece – the possibilities are endless!
Mid-size hairpins will allow you or your hairstylist to build a delicate and quite classic look – or you can team them with coordinating hairpins or vines to create a stronger headpiece style.
If you’re struggling to decide on a hair accessory for your updo hairstyle you can’t really go wrong with a set of hairpins – they’re a great option to take to your hair stylist and ask them to create their own look for you. And if you have any hairpins left why not share them with your bridesmaids to create simpler coordinating looks!
If you’re not sure that you’ll have time for a hair trial before your wedding day hairpins are a real godsend as the styling possibilities with these super-versatile hair accessories are endless. And whether your wedding style is classic and elegant, whimsical and boho, simple or intricate – there’s a hairpin option for every bride, dress or wedding.
