However you choose to wear your hair for your big day, there is a hair accessory to suit every style. Here, Becky from accessory experts Laurel Lime tells us a little bit more about 2014’s most popular details and how they can work with your bridal style…

Traditional tiara

1. Daphne Tiara ú90.00

What’s great about it?

They are perfect for creating height, can be easily worn with a veil and provide instant dramatic effect. If you’re planning a traditional day, you can’t go wrong with a tiara.

Looks best with…

A classic, more traditional look with hair being worn up, or part up to frame the face. It’s the perfect finishing touch for a princess-style day – think Kate Middleton!

Side headband

2. Clio Headdress ú265.00

What’s great about it?

Side headbands are incredibly versatile, and can be worn easily with any hairstyle, long or short. They flatter most bridal styles effortlessly and have been a modern alternative to tiaras over the last few years.

Looks best with…

Any style. They are a very popular choice for brides right now. A good rule of thumb is to place the headband on the side of the head opposite any dress detailing, such as one shoulder dresses, to harmonise the look. Look for sparkly version for glamorous themes, or pearly examples if you’re going more vintage.

Hair comb

3. Ellie Comb ú90.00

What’s great about it?

The bridal comb can slide comfortably into hair with minimal fuss and can be worn at the front, side or back making it a popular choice for modern brides.

Looks best with…

Hair being worn in a partial updo, and especially low chignons. Add a birdcage veil to complement a vintage theme.

Hair vine

4. Charlotte Hairvine  ú70.00

What’s great about it?

Because the hair vine is made with flexible wire and finished with small loops, it can be worn anywhere in the hair fixed with bobby pins. It can be as dramatic or as subtle as the look requires.

Looks best with…

A relaxed, more casual bridal style and looks particularly good intertwined into braided hair for a romantic touch. The must-have finishing touch for a boho bride or someone having flowers are their theme.

Forehead band

5. 1920s Headdress image 8 ú150.00

What’s great about it?

It’s informal, feminine and has a softer look. Add some flowers or leaves for a more bohemian or Grecian style which is very on trend right now.

Looks best with…

Hair being worn loose with an al fresco style wave. Wear a forehead band if you’re planning a bohemian festival-style wedding or a boho wedding abroad.

Hair pins

6. laurel-lime Daphne £35.00 (2)

What’s great about it?

Hairpins are ideal for an understated look, or can be clustered to create something more dramatic.

Looks best with…

Updos like buns or a chignon at the back of the hair for added detail, and subtly complements heavily beaded or detailed dresses. Pins are also great for adding subtle detail if you’re on a small budget.
