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!

Brides often ask us what to wear in lieu of a bridal veil, or how to transition from ceremony to reception without losing the bridal look. A hair comb is one of our favorite bridal veil alternatives and this feather rhinestone hair comb (‘Harlow’) will add a dose of glam with gorgeous feathers and rhinestones. Plus, a hair comb is easy to add to your hairstyle without mussing up your ‘do.
