Hints and tips for using your Halo and Miranda Templeton Headpieces and hair ornaments


An asymmetric headpiece can be worn with any hairstyle but best suited to a side parting or  with an asymmetric detail on the gown.  Ideally the detail of the headdress is worn on the side of the hair parting, or on the opposite side to the detail of the gown.  These headdresses can be worn with a veil.  Position the detail in front of the veil so that the veil can be removed after the ceremony if required.


The traditional tiara is as its most flattering when the hair is worn up with a section of hair arranged with height and volume at the crown, so that it acts as a back drop  which the tiara highlights.  For a sophisticated look, have your hair arranged in a high bun and the tiara flush with where the bun meets the crown of the head.  Or for a less formal look how about a half up half down look, take small segments of hair from the sides and create a volume on the crown.


Combs brooches and hair pins can be used in more delicate ways place the combs into your hair in front of the veil, or wear without a veil with the comb in the back of the hair.


Four head bands are popular with brides who love the soft up dos boho looks and the great Gatsby feel. And with lace ever fashionable in bridal gowns pearls details on your head piece work well with theses.  Pearls soften your look and lend themselves to floral themes.
