The Knot Book of Wedding Gowns put it succinctly when making this observation: "When it comes to topping it off there are two types of brides: 'hair' brides and 'veil' brides." In the case of the veil bride, she may figure wearing this traditional accessory will be a once-in-a-life time deal; others claim they don't really feel like a bride till the veil goes on. A hair bride is another story. Her crown of glory is her way of pulling the whole look together whether her hair is worn up, down or even with a veil tacked to the back of a bun, back and out of the way. For today's bride variations of headpieces and hats can either compliment or replace a veil. We're even seeing hair jewelry added to the 'topping it off''repertoire. Last week I had the opportunity to work with makeup artist and hair designer, Christal Saville on this shoot She's made available the stick pin hair jewels shown in these images so difficult to find but lots of brides have been hollering for. Check out the variations here from pearls to rhinestone, round and star shapes . . . READ AND SEE MORE IMAGES
