A guide to bridal hair accessories and hairstyles that flatter different face shapes

No two women are alike. So, what looks good on one bride may not be the best choice for another. This explains the diverse choices in fashion, since there should be something to suit everyone.

Most brides understand the importance of choosing a wedding dress silhouette that flatters their body shape. Just as you focus on finding a dress that flatters your best assets, it is important that you find a hairstyle and accessories that enhance your facial features.

You may fall in love with a hairstyle you see in a magazine or on the internet. However, the design of your dreams should suit your facial structure and features, for it to work properly. Unless you find the right hairstyle and accessories for your face shape, you may not look your very best on your wedding day.

The first step to getting this right, is to identify your face shape. Certain face shapes are easy, like round, square or oval. If you can quickly identify yours, you are welcome to the first step. However, if you aren’t so sure, this article on Wikihow suggests two different ways to determine your face shape. The first method is to trace the outline of your face on a mirror and identify the shape that it resembles closely.  The second method uses precise measurements of your jawline, cheek-to-cheek width, forehead and length of face and compare it to the given list to decide your face shape. Choose either of these methods and identify your actual face shape.

Common face shapes and their characteristic features

Eight different face shapes are widely recognized. These are the following:

Oval: Oval faces have more length than width. The forehead is slightly wider than the jaw and chin areas, and overall the face structure is symmetrical.

Round: The cheekbones are usually wide and similar in proportion to the overall length of the face. You will have a small chin area without sharp angular features, and the forehead will be small.

Oblong or rectangle: These face types are longer than they are wide. The measurements are similar for the forehead, jawline and and cheeks.

Heart: The chin is narrower than the temples and cheeks. Forehead and cheek measurements are similar and upper facial features are soft and rounded.

Square: The difference from the oblong face is that square faces are about as long as they are wide. The jaw is characterized by sharp angles, as is the forehead.

Triangle: Triangle-faces are similar to the heart-shape. However the angles are sharper and the chin is generally more pointed.

Diamond: As the name suggests, diamond faces are widest at the cheeks and taper towards the forehead and chin region. This type of face structure is usually symmetrical.

Now that we’ve looked at the different face shapes there is, let us find out what hairstyle and accessories suit each type best.

Suggested hairstyles and accessories for each face shape

Oval face shape

The oval face shape is one of the easiest types to accessorize. Since the facial proportions are symmetrical, it is relatively easy to balance. Whether you have long, tumbling tresses or wear your hair short, there are a plethora of options available when choosing your wedding day hair. For some hairstyle inspiration for this face shape, take a look at this article on the Marieclaire website

If your face is really long, it is a good idea to pick a hairstyle that breaks the length of your face. A chignon or a fringe would work well. Also consider a bun at the nape of your neck or pull back your hair loosely into a ponytail that shows off your face shape. A side-part will add more width to your face, if it is long. Avoid hairstyles and accessories that add height at the top. Instead, choose hairstyles that add fullness to the sides of the face. Headbands look good on oval faces, especially when they simply encircle the crown. All the different types of veils, from birdcage veils to long-flowing ones are suitable for this face shape.

Round

When your face is round, pick a hairstyle and accessories that create the illusion of length. This will help your face look longer, and resemble an oval. Layered bangs and long hairstyles will elongate this otherwise full shape. Women with round faces can slim down their faces using hairstyles with texture and bounce. Deep side-parts tend to reduce the fullness of the face, and are a style you should consider. If you choose a layered hairstyle, ensure that the layers are graduated and give the neck region a longer look. Visit this post on the She Knows website for more ideas on hairstyles that work best for this face shape.

When choosing your wedding day hairstyle, consider a sleek, side-parted ponytail for an elegant and classy look. Another option is to wear a hairstyle which adds height at the center and balances the proportions of your face. Hair accessories that add height, such as a tiara in a triangular fashion are the best. It is also a good idea to add some volume at the area under your veil, so the face doesn’t look chubby. Your veil should flow along the sides of your face, thus elongating it.

Oblong

For this face shape, we suggest hairstyles and accessories that add width, but not length. Side-swept hairstyles, especially those with tumbling waves soft curls add a delicate, feminine quality to this face shape. Avoid long, straight and sleek styles that further accentuate the length of your face. Instead opt for short layers or fringes along the sides that will add more volume to your face. A side-swept updo or half-up half-down hairstyles will also look amazing on you.

Find a veil with plenty of layers that fall around your face. For hair accessories, ornate combs or dainty hair pins that add sparkle to a side-swept hairstyle work well. You can also wear floral headbands to add texture to a side-swept hairstyle.

Heart

Heart shaped faces are wider at the forehead than the chin, and look good with hairstyles that draw attention to the cheekbones and shift focus from the angular chin. Fringes work well with this face shape. Add more texture or volume to the area near the ears and cheek with hairstyles like textured bobs. If you want a gathered hairstyle, consider an off-center part that takes the hair away from the face, but breaks up the width at the top. Refrain from making a center part or pulling your hair back without a part, as this will only make your forehead appear wider.

Explore the options in combs and hairpins to accentuate your wedding day hairstyle. Avoid wearing flat tiaras or headbands that add width to your forehead, unless you also wear a side-swept fringe with it.

Square

Hairstyles that conceal or shift attention from the fullness of the jaw and forehead are ideal for square face shapes. Since the corners are rather sharp, they can also add volume to the face. Long, straight hairstyles with soften this look. Off-center parts are also suggested as this will open the face up and not enhance the effect of a broad jaw. Similarly, oversize buns with wispy curls around the face conceal the forehead and balance out the jawline. Bouncy, graduated curls are also a good way to shift attention from your angular jaw.

Choose headpieces with asymmetrical details for best results. Do not wear it in the center. Instead, wear your headpiece to one side of the face. Details like twirls, floral elements, delicate details that add sparkle to the hair and feminine curls are suitable. Voluminous veils are good for this facial shape.

Triangle

The most prominent feature of a triangle shape face is the jaw with its greater proportions in comparison to the forehead. When you choose your wedding day hairstyle and accessories, aim to balance out the proportions of the face and shift focus from your pointed chin area. For this, add width to the jaw area with a suitable hairstyle. A chignon or bun tied at the nape of the neck with a vivid side-part will achieve this effect.

Headpieces that broaden the forehead and widen the width of this area are suggested. Wear it close to the temple, instead of placing it near the crown. Delicate and dainty headpieces with plenty of detailing will draw attention to your eyes and forehead. When choosing veils, look for ones that do not end near the jaw line, or have layers in that area. Your veil should preferably fall towards the back.

Diamond

If your face has the shape of a diamond, you are likely to be blessed with sharp, chiseled features. Although your chin tends to have a pointy look, it can be camouflaged with a suitable hairstyle. The hairstyle you pick should ideally reduce the length of your face, and balance out its lean look. Basically, aim to shift attention from the center of the face. You can achieve this with hairstyles that add a side-part. Layers work well, as these add volume around the face and give it a fuller effect. If you have side-swept bangs, leave them open. Avoid hairstyles that fall flat and straight as this will highlight the contours of your face.

Choose hair accessories that simply enhance a side-part for your wedding day. You can also experiment with hair clips and combs that add the right dose of sparkle to your hairdo. Avoid tiaras and crowns, unless you leave your bangs open. Never pair this with a sleek updo or pull your hair back on all sides since it will highlight the actual shape of your face. Oversize hair accessories like floral crowns are another great option as this can disguise the actual shape of your face and give it a fuller look.

Other factors to consider

While your face shape is an important factor to consider when choosing your hairstyle, there are other factors to consider as well. For instance, your hairstyle should match your dress style and it should be formal or casual based on your wedding style. The accessories you wear on this day should also go well with the rest of your outfit. All these factors can make it rather confusing to find the right combination of hairstyle and hair accessories that go together seamlessly.

If you are unsure of what to choose, you can always ask your bridal dress consultant for suggestions for suitable accessories. Experienced bridal fashion consultants can usually suggest suitable accessories for each dress style, and you can make your pick from what they recommend. Also, consult your hairstylist. Discuss how you want to look, show her pictures you like and ask for inputs on what would look best on you. Have a trial hair and makeup session ahead of the wedding, and you can see if it comes together properly and make suitable adjustments as necessary.

Your wedding dress: One rule to follow when you choose wedding accessories is that your dress and accessories should come together. You will find it easier to find accessories that match a wedding dress, than the other way around. So, start you search for the right hair accessory only after you buy your wedding dress.

Facial structure: The right choice of hair accessories will enhance and draw attention to your best assets. Choose the right headpiece that is suitable for your face shape. For instance, pointed tiaras look good on round faces while flat headbands look best on square and oval faces.

Length and color of hair: Your head piece should be visible to onlookers. For this, choose the right metal and embellishments that stand out against your hair color. For dark hair, most hair accessories are suitable. However if you have light colored hair, pick pieces that differ from the color of your hair. Different types of head bands are suitable for different hair lengths. While most accessories work for long hair, dainty accessories look good on hair of short or medium length.

Wedding day hairstyle: With the wide variety of hair accessories available in the market, you have ample choice. Depending on whether you plan to leave your hair down or secure it in an updo, pick accessories that draw attention to the details in your hairstyle. If you have short hair, you can choose hair accessories so they are the focal point of the hairstyle. In this case, this element can transform a basic hairstyle to one that instantly wows!

Wedding style: Certain accessories suit certain themes better than others. For instance, oversize floral crowns look better at casual weddings than at formal ceremonies. When you go shopping for wedding accessories, choose ones that will look good in the venue. It should also blend well with the theme. Only then will you look like a bride that belongs.

Rest of the wedding jewelry and embellishments: Your hair accessories should not just work well with your wedding dress, but complement your jewelry too. If your hair accessory is ornate and elaborate, keep the rest of your jewelry simple. However, if you pick statement jewelry pieces, choose dainty head pieces that will not clash with the rest of your jewelry.

Pay attention to these rules of accessorizing your hair, and you will dress in style with your hair accessory being the crowning glory of your look. And what are the different options available to you in the form of hair accessories? Let us find out now.

The different bridal hair accessories

Bridal tiaras

If your dress has crystal accents, or is relatively simple, a bridal tiara is a stunning choice. Tiaras with pearls or crystal details go well with most wedding dress styles. This hair accessory is a statement piece and there are few other occasions when you can flaunt one.

A tiara is a formal piece of jewelry. Hence,it suits traditional and opulent wedding themes very well. When wearing a tiara, don’t add too many other pieces or you will end up with a cluttered look. Pair it with simple studs and a thin pendant or necklace that doesn’t compete with it.

Tiaras come in different shapes, sizes and styles. These include the wishbone, regal style, double band, bun wrap, head band and wreath. Pay attention to where and how you pin it to achieve the right effect. A tiara placed at the crown will look entirely different from one pinned above a bun.

Headbands

The head band is one of the most versatile types of hair accessories. It works on most hair lengths and complements almost every face shape. You can pair it with most hairstyles, and it has always been a trendy accessory.

Head bands come in various sizes and shapes. You will also find that they feature various types of embellishments, which makes it easy to find one that fits your wedding day style. Wedding head bands may contain rhinestones, crystals, metals, lace and even feathers.

You will find classic, modern, Boho and even colorful head bands to choose from. For ideas on how to wear a head band, take a look at this link. 

Hair combs

If you plan to lock your tresses in a bun or similar hairstyle, hair combs are an excellent accessory to enhance your hairstyle. These accessories come with embellishments on the top of a comb, and are inserted into a portion of the hair. They will stay in place, and also keep the hair pinned down.

Hair combs may have simple details or elaborate embellishments. Although most bridal combs are embellished with sparkling details, there are also those with feathers, flowers and other dainty details. Hair combs look best when paired with braided hairstyles or updos, since these hairstyles make the details on these accessories more pronounced.

Clips and pins

Hair clips and pins are smaller hair accessories that add just the right amount of sparkle to a hairstyle. The benefit of using these hair accessories is that they can be paired with any hairstyle, however complex or simple. They add a romantic, feminine touch and are very pleasing on the eye.

Hair clips use a clasping mechanism and hold hair in place. Alternately, they may have a jaw between which they secure the hair strands. Hair pins are simply pushed into position, with the lower half concealed within the strands of hair while the upper portion is visible.

Choose hair clips or pins that match the embellishments in your dress by picking out flowers, stars or similar motifs that repeat on your dress. You can also add a dash of color to your hairstyle by using hair pins with colorful embellishments. These are a small enough to add just a subtle dose of color without overwhelming presence.

Fascinators

Fascinators are bold and beautiful accents to fancy hairstyles. They add a lively flourish of details to your hair. These accessories also draw attention to your facial features. Most fascinators are impressive with attractive embellishments like feathers, flowers, net, lace and faux flowers.

Ideally suited for Boho, retro and vintage style wedding themes, you will not need any other accessory to complete your look when you wear a fascinator. Fascinators are suitable for most hair lengths. Choose one that works well with the proportions of your face, and enjoy a unique look that will help you stand out from the crowd.

Floral crowns

Big or small, floral crowns are a wonderful accessory to enhance your bridal look manifold. They are very easy-to-wear accessories that instantly add a punch to any style. This article on the Brides website suggests that it can even be used as a statement accessory.  What is more, flower crowns and veils are a match made in heaven. You do not have to give one up for the sake of the other.

Although floral crowns look best at outdoor weddings in spring and summer, they are also suitable for the cooler season. Delicate blooms like baby breath and daisies add a soft, romantic touch, while large floral crowns add a Bohemian touch.

Trust your florist to fashion a floral crown that goes well with your wedding theme, bridal bouquet and bridal dress. Alternately, you can also make it yourself, if you are crafty. Ensure that you choose hardy blooms that will not wilt easily, so your floral crown stays fresh for longer. Alternately, have one made from fabric or paper flowers. Such a crown will not become shabby or wilt over time. You can also save it as a valuable keepsake.

Flowers

Fresh flowers are a refreshing and attractive addition to any bridal hairstyle. Flowers in your hair are perfect for a romantic, dreamy wedding day look.

There are many ways in which you can wear flowers in your hair. You can position it in different locations to achieve the intended effect. The size, color and quality of blooms will determine the impact of your hairstyle. From simply pinning flowers into your hairdo to weaving it into a braid, there are several ways in which you can add flowers to your hair.

Hair vines are usually made with Swarovski crystals, enamel details, faux silk flowers or similar embellishments. These accessories have a natural effect that isn’t overpowering. It is suitable for both formal and informal wedding styles and you can wear it at any position on your head.

Veils

Although veils are short pieces of fabric, they create a bridal look instantly. Hence, this traditional and classic wedding hair accessory is closely associated with the bridal trousseau. They come in various lengths and can be made of different materials.

The fabric, length and style determine the impact of the veil. There are veils that are better suited for formal weddings than informal wedding styles. Veils also have the power to transform your overall bridal look and tie it to the theme. For instance, a birdcage veil is suitable for a vintage wedding, whereas a long cathedral veil looks amazing at a church wedding.

Bridal jewelry suggestions for different fashion styles

Once you choose your wedding dress, you are only half-done with dressing up for your wedding day. You still have to choose your hairstyle, makeup and most importantly, the accessories to bring together your overall look.

Just like there are thousands of options in wedding dresses, there are plenty of choices in wedding jewelry too. Finding the right balance in size, structure and impact created by the chosen accessories, is important to fashioning your overall wedding day look. Neither should you go overboard with accessories that it competes with your wedding dress, nor should it be too simple that it doesn’t help you to stand out as a bride.

Here are some tips to keep in mind when choosing your wedding day jewelry.

  • Buy your wedding dress first: We always recommend buying your wedding dress first and then choosing matching accessories, as it is easier to do things in this order. The only exception is if you will be wearing heirloom jewelry or have already spent a fortune on jewelry that will be the signature element in creating your look.
  • Find the right balance: If your wedding dress is simple, choose statement jewelry that enhances your overall look. On the other hand, if you have chosen a richly embellished wedding dress with plenty of detail, opt for simple jewelry so your overall look isn’t cluttered.
  • Choose jewelry that suits your features: Always try on jewelry before you buy it, so you can make sure that it complements your facial features. Certain styles look better than others on different face shapes. So, make sure that the accessories you choose highlights your most attractive features.

Now you know what you should be looking for, when choosing your wedding jewelry.

With more and more brides preferring themed weddings, it is necessary to find jewelry that will contribute to the style they sport on their wedding day. Let us take a look at some inspiring wedding jewelry ideas for the most popular wedding themes we find these days.

1.Boho

This style is non-traditional, bold and vibrant. It is colorful, wild and has an unconventional edge that is both endearing and unusual, and is significantly different from anything traditional. When you are a Boho bride, your wedding dress will usually be dramatic enough. It isn’t necessary to find matching accessories for your wedding dress, as this style allows you to mix and play with entirely different styles to create your own signature look. Here are some ideas.

  • Instantly add style to your look with a unique headpiece that screams out your style statement. Feathers, flower crowns, oversize beaded head pieces and colorful headbands are all suitable for this style.

  • A colorful necklace with a lot of texture, like fabric strips, beads and stones, is a must-have. This will not only add color, it will also be a unique piece.

  • Prints and patterns appeal to Boho brides immensely, and there are many ways to add these to your ensemble. Consider wearing a earrings with colorful prints to instantly add a pop of color to your face.

earring

  • Unexpected pieces of jewelry like toe rings, anklets or other foot jewelry are an amazing way to make a statement, especially if your wedding dress just skims your ankles and exposes your dainty feet.

Classic

The name says it all—the classic bride prefers timeless trends that never go out of fashion. There is a refined sophistication to this style, and these brides usually have an affinity for pearls and diamonds in simple but stunning designs. Classic wedding dresses feature traditional silhouettes like ball gowns or A-line dresses, with or without sleeves. The makeup is usually quite simple, and the hair is done in simple styles like chignons, buns or simply let down. Here are the jewelry choices that complement this style.

  • The choice of necklace depends on the neckline of the gown. If the dress features an embellished or high neckline, the necklace can be eliminated. If not, these brides usually prefer a string of pearls or a simple necklace with a stone studded pendant. If the bride opts for color, this can be achieved with gemstones like emeralds, rubies or sapphires.
  • While some brides choose large studs and dangling earrings decorated with pearls or stones, others prefer to keep it simple with a single stone stud. Basically, aim to strike the right balance between the earring size and necklace. If the necklace is elaborate, it is best to avoid earrings or stick to simpler ones.

  • Hair accessories like little brooches, scintillating classy headbands or pretty beaded headpieces can be used to dress up your hair in a sophisticated way, especially if you aren’t using much jewelry in the rest of your outfit.

Vintage

Each vintage era has its distinct characteristics, and your jewelry should go well with the era that has inspired your wedding plans. If you are just aiming for an old-fashioned vibe, there are common elements like lace and pearls that suit almost all the styles. Let us take a look at some samples of what accessories would be suitable for a vintage style wedding dress.

  • Pearls and stones are a must-have, and the more elaborate the necklace, better it will match the vintage theme. Strings of pearls, like those featured in this picture, will bring the vintage effect alive in your outfit. If you want more drama, club different sized strings of pearls to come up with your own stylish interpretation of a vintage piece. Else search through your mother or grandmother’s jewelry collection to pick out necklaces that were trendy in their days.

  • Finish off your vintage hair up-do with a vivid headpiece with enough sparkle to make a statement. Whether you choose to place it around your crown, above your bun or as a string on just one side, it is bound to add that finishing touch to the perfect hairstyle.

  • Add a touch of vintage glam to your face with the help of oversize shiny loops in your ear. The more jazzy they look with shiny stones, the better it will be. With a pair as magnificent as in this picture, you can even skip a necklace, as they are absolute showstoppers.

Beach style

There are many brides who would have it no other way, than have their nuptials at the beach. Since these weddings are casual, fun and full of the essence of the sand and sea, their dress and accessories should reflect this tone too. While the wedding dress itself should best feature soft, lightweight, breezy fabric, the jewelry can be loud, with plenty of inspiration drawn from the frolicking waves and blue skies that characterize every beach location. Here are a few ideas.

  • Start with a nautical inspired headband. Here is one with starfish and flowers as blue as the ocean. The best part is that it weaves into the hair seamlessly, so it looks like it is a part of the hairdo. Could it get any better than this?

  • Pearl earrings and studs are perfect for a beach wedding, as these are associated with the ocean. However, if you want a casual look, go with colorful options like corals or shells in your jewelry, and it will look great. These dangling coral earrings are simply perfect to dress up your white attire with a little pop of color, and it is just apt for a beach wedding.

  • To go with your coral earrings, get an equally attractive coral necklace. The bright pop of pinkish orange will instantly color your wedding outfit and make you look like a sea princess, all set to be wed where surf meets turf. This coral necklace has a darker tone, and is perfectly complemented by the blue turquoise beads. The silver pendant adds a vintage touch and gives it a beautiful personality.

  • If there is one wedding where foot jewelry doesn’t look out of place, it has to be a beach wedding. Dress up your pretty feet with beautiful accessories, as you will be trotting through the sand and they will highlight your beautiful feet.

Glamorous

When we think of glamorous, the image that immediately comes to mind is plenty of glitter, sexy outfits and large signature style jewelry. When you choose a dress that has all the elements that make it captivating, you can wear just minimum jewelry to complement it. Take care to not overdo the jewelry, or you can end up looking over-the-top and cluttered. Here are some jewelry options to add a touch of glamour to your wedding day look.

  • If your wedding dress has a strapless neckline, bring on the bling with a loud and bright necklace. Gold is the ideal metal to use, as it instantly adds more glamour to your look. If not, opt for sparkles with gems in your necklace. Consider big motifs and large pendants for a striking finish. If you have a color theme for your wedding, don’t hesitate to consider a necklace with colored gems for that unique touch.

  • If an eye-catching necklace doesn’t appeal to you, choose big, bold earrings instead. If you wear your hair in an up do, draw focus to your face with dangling earrings. Instead, if you leave your hair down, a big stud is a better option as it will not get lost within your tresses. Remember to stick to only one statement piece of jewelry; either the earring or a necklace. If you will be wearing both, keep them small, so you don’t look like you belong in a costume parade.

  • Go bold with a big headpiece if you want to look really glamorous. We think it is most effective when hair pieces are placed on the side of the crown, instead of at the center. If you really want to look glamorous, you can wear a tiara. After all, it isn’t everyday that you can dress up like a princess, and get away with it.
  • Don’t forget that your fingers and arms can also revel in some extra attention. Consider adding a bright, brilliant bracelet to your ensemble, especially if your dress is strapless and you will be showing off your arms. If not a bracelet, then you should consider a big, statement ring for one of your fingers, that will pop with sparkle. Don’t forget to ask your photographer to spare some extra attention to pictures with your bouquets, and your fingers will get all the glory they deserve.
