While I'm a designer and lover of beautiful veils and veil treatments, top notch hair dressing has my attention too. It shows off you and your dress to the best advantage. The talented hair and makeup artist, Christal Saville has concocted some award winning looks here with her exqusite hairstyling and line of hair jewels for brides on their wedding day. Since brides are wanting hair jewelry added to the 'topping it off''repertoire, she's made available the stick pin hair jewels shown in these images so difficult to find out there. Check out the variations here from pearls to rhinestone, round and star shapes . . . A bride's crown of glory is sometimes 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.

Real down do glam
