How to Rock a Bridal Headband 2020

If you’re looking for the perfect wedding hair accessory for 2020, it has to the bridal headband.

Bridal headbands and hairbands were a huge hit at Spring 2020 Bridal Fashion Week with top designers forgoing traditional veils with strong statement headbands. Designs came in a variety of formats, from Viktor & Rolf’s strikingly simple satin headbands to intricate floral headbands adorned with 3D flowers from Reem Acra.

As well as an array of styles to choose from to suit your wedding outfit, there are several benefits to wearing a bridal headband, including:

  • Versatility – Bridal headbands can be paired with a veil or worn on their own. They are also a super-easy way take your bridal look from day to evening by detaching the veil or swapping a demure headband for a glamorous evening headpiece.
  • All the hair dos – Unlike tiaras which tend to suit either all down or all up wedding hairstyles, headbands can be worn with any kind of style, including half up and half down styles, bridal buns and bobs.
  • Choices, choices – There are endless headband styles, from side headbands with detailing on one side, to fine single headbands. They also come in a vast range of materials, including vintage-inspired pearls and crystals, flower headbands, lace headbands and shell headbands.
  • Easy to wear (and take off!) – Most bridal headbands are ribbon tied rather than pinned, so can easily be removed – handy if you want to switch up your style between the ceremony and reception.

Big, bold hairbands – Hairbands, the hair accessory of the moment, have been given a bridal twist with pearl and crystal embellishments. Designs at Bridal Fashion Week included high profile headbands with oversized pearls and wide hair wraps scattered with pearls.

Pearl headbands look beautiful combined with long and short veils however they can also hold their own as standalone pieces. For an edgier look, why not pair your headband with a shorter birdcage veil?

How to Wear a Wedding Headband

The beauty of a wedding hairband is that they are so easy and comfortable to wear. And unlike tiaras, they won’t weigh you down when moving around or dancing.

Bridal hairbands look gorgeous sitting in the middle or slightly forward towards your hairline. Most wedding hairbands come with detachable ribbon ties which can either be tied discreetly beneath your hair or, if you’re wearing your hair up, left to hang prettily at the nape of your neck.

For an edgier, pared back look, wear your headband in the middle with slightly wavy or straight parted hair. Or for a relaxed, romantic look, nestle the headband in loose curls. You can also use it to accentuate a softly styled up-do. Wedding headbands also look lovely paired with shoulder skimming bobs and lobs.

The key is to headband heaven is to experiment with styles before the day.
