How to wear a headband

23 April 2017
/ / /

Personally, I love to wear a headband: it’s both elegant and simple, on top of being an accessory easy to wear. Not to mention, there are so many designs out there, you’re sure to find one to your tastes! I like its practical side – it holds your hair in place and out of our face all day. I also like its aesthetic side, giving a touch of finesse to any outfit.

But hey, it’s easy to fall into a routine and always style your hair and headband the same way. So like we did for our Clara wedding hair bow, here are suggestions of hairstyles to wear with a headband!

The accessory: our Basia headband

Inspired by the Gatsby and the 20s trends, our Basia wedding headband is also well-suited for everyday wear. You can choose it in white or ivory, but also in black. You can order it as a ribbon or with an elastic finish for a “closed” headband. As a wedding hair accessory it is not only perfect for the bride, but also for the bridesmaid, the flower girl, and even the wedding guest!

With a bun

In this case our Basia headband is used only as an ornament, but the addition of this hair accessory can completely change a look. Besides it can hold the little crazy hair that tends to get out of place during the day.

Idea: Make a braid at the base of the bun for a nice touch!

 

With a braid

One of the biggest hair trends of the moment, the braid is popular both with brides-to-be and with fashionistas. Give structure to your braid and make sure your hair stays in place throughout the day by adding our Basia headband, which will also allow to frame our face. You will be both awesome and original!

With a ponytail

The ponytail is one of the most practical hairstyles, perfect when we want to quickly pull up our hair. Combine usefulness to beauty by adding the Basia headband to keep your hair in place while looking gorgeous!

Half-up, half-down

A perfect hairstyle if you want it all : your hair loose and free, but up and out of your hair at the same time! This hairstyle allows both a casual but also neat look. Complete your hairstyle with the Basia headband for a fancy touch!

Bridal hairstyles trends of 2017

25 February 2017
/ / /

We’re back with the 2017 hairstyles trends for the bride! As in 2015 & 2016, we asked Angela of Coiffure du Château to tell us more about what is trendy for the upcoming wedding season.

Waves & messy hair

Probably a consequence of the rustic and DIY trends (click here and here for rustic inspirations) that take over so many weddings, bridal hairstyles are also becoming more relaxed. Angela says, “this year is even more “undone” than last year with loose waves, messy, beach “did it myself” hair.”

It may seems funny that many brides would opt to go to a hairstylist to get their hair professionally done only to choose a style that looks as if they did it themselves. But no one would risk doing their own hair for the big day. Also, as many couple focus more their wedding day on the moment itself and not on the details, it is only normal the bride’s look shows this new approach to weddings!

Statement bridal hairstyles

On the other end of the spectrum, there are the brides who think, Go big or go home! After all, it is your big day and it’s the perfect change to live out your fantasies. According to Angela, “Fashion to the max this year, anything goes as long as it’s fabulous and bold!”

For those who liked one of the major trends of last year, you ‘re in luck : “Of course braids are here to stay, so we are seeing those too!” says Angela.

And what can we expect in the future? The hairstylist muses, “I’m thinking more real life princess themes will be coming.”

Flower hair accessories

Braids aren’t the only bridal hairstyles trend making a comeback this year: flowers for hair are still going from strength to strength! It is a favorite for bride and their bridesmaids we’ve seen for years and it seems its popularity isn’t diminishing any time soon.

Indeed, when we asked her the accessories trends she knew would be big in 2017, Angela answered without hesitating : “It’s floral floral floral! We’ll see major floral headpieces that make a statement. Crowns of flowers, big and bold or baby’s breath accessories.”

No wonder one of Angela’s favorite bridal headpieces of our 2017 wedding collection is our Marianna flower crown!

Hairstyles for the bride 2016

9 April 2016
/ / /

Wedding season is near and so brides everywhere are starting to consider what they will wear for their wedding hair accessory, as well as choosing their hairstyle. Not sure which style is trendy? I asked Angela Baughman of Coiffure du Chateau so you can have her professional opinion!

According to Angela, there are three big trends for wedding season 2016. The first would be ‘’very “undone” hair, disheveled upstyles’’. Perfect for rustic weddings, a ceremony on the beach or a bride who want a simple wedding! Angela also tells us another trend is long, barely there curls, something brides have been favoring for few years.

Hairstyles trends for the bride

The boho glam trend, with undone styles, is really big in 2016, according to the hairdresser – but mostly for summer weddings. When it comes to winter weddings, brides tend to favor a side chignon, or long and loose hair. Winter brides usually choose a large headband or headpiece, such as our Cendrine fascinator or Jessica headdress, since a lot of them want a ‘’vintage’’ feel to their look.

At the other end of spectrum, Angela tells us another bi trend is ‘’ BIG hair, BIG buns, big coiffed styles.” Go big or go home, as they say! It’s not surprising, considering a lot of brides seen their wedding day as the perfect occasion to treat themselves and live their fantasies, something they wouldn’t do in “everyday” life.

You want a classic style with a twist to keep things interesting without dreading to look at the pictures 10 years on? “I would do a French textured twist for sure! It is timeless and works with every color of hair, from blondes to black!”

And finally, Angela noted that for bridal hair accessories, jewels are always popular, like our Elsa headband, Eventail headpiece or Marie-Helene birdcage veil. Another big trend would be flowers, real or fake, ‘’like a halo’’, says Angela! Brides who want flowers can look at our Abby hairclip, Anna Rosa wreath and Gabriella flower crown! But if you want a big, halo-like crown, stay tuned : such a design that was to be included in the 2017 collection might be available soon, very soon… ! Stay tuned in the upcoming weeks!
