Looking for a bridal veil alternative? Consider a bridal tiara or headband for a no-fuss, no-muss addition to any wedding hair style. Recently, we talked about how to get more volume in your hair for your wedding day. Once you have that voluminous look, you’ll want to show it off with a unique bridal tiara or headband. Today, we’re sharing 5 of our favorite tiaras for your wedding by Tiffani Saxton Designs. And, if you thought ‘tiara’ was only synonymous with ‘princess’, think again! These tiaras can be customized to suit your own unique wedding hair style. Enjoy!
Have you ever wondered how to get more volume in your hair? Today we’re going to show you how to achieve that thicker, fuller look for your wedding day – and beyond – with a few of our favorite tutorials. I have always admired voluminous hair in magazines and photo shoots wishing that I, too, had lustrous, voluminous hair. Then I realized something: I can keep wishing for more volume or I can make it happen. Voluminous hair is the result of a few key essentials like a good diet (high protein can lead to healthier, thicker hair with less breakage), plenty of H20, proper blow-drying techniques (here’s a video to get you started), plenty of hairspray, and abundant amounts of teasing, product-applying, and styling. If you’re opting for a bridal veil alternative, keep in mind that your hair will have nothing to hide behind. If you don’t want your hair to go from fabulous to flat as you walk down the aisle, be sure to give your hair plenty of lift. So, now, let’s show you how to get more volume in your hair with these tutorials PLUS a few hand-picked bridal headbands perfect for sporting your voluminous new ‘do. Enjoy!

You’ll need some hair accessories to complement your wedding-ready volume, so take a peek at a few handmade bridal headbands:
This headband (above) was spotted via Memento*, a hair accessories shop with plenty of sparkly headbands. We love this one in particular, which features Swarovski rhinestones in a tiara/princess-style headband.
This headband by Tiffani Saxton Designs* is made with Swarovski crystal, freshwater pearl, and a sterling silver tiara. Stunning!
This headband is by LoBoheme and features Russian veiling. Gorgeous!
And, finally, this rhinestone adorned silk chiffon bridal headband is quite lovely, isn’t it? We spotted it via Twigs & Honey (photography by Lisa Warninger).
Happy Planning Styling!
