15 Gorgeous Hair Accessories to Stun on Your Big Day
In the ’40s, deep red pouts and circle trains were all the rage. In the 60s, sheer sleeves a la Kate Middleton were the most scandalous things to happen before an “I do.” The ladies of the ’80s rocked off-the-shoulder dresses and teased their hair like it was their job. Today, brides have the freedom to experiment and choose a look that suits their personality. We are loving the cute detail that a hairpiece brings to your bridal look. It can be subtle or eye-catching. Whichever vibe you’re shooting for, one of these 15 bridal headpieces should make its way into your big day.
2. Caitlin Headpiece Comb ($223): Reminiscent of our pre-teen beading days, this piece is youthful in all the right ways. We recommend wearing it with a short, retro dress.
3. Festive Starry Rhinestone Headband ($225): A slightly quirky but utterly gorgeous starry piece, this headband is perfect for a bride who loves style but doesn’t want to be taken too seriously.
4. Pink Flower Crown ($60): There’s a reason why 85% of weddings are in the spring — so ladies can wear flowers on their heads. Don’t worry if you can’t find fresh blooms. This hair crown is beyond gorgeous.
5. Ophelia-Crystal Lace Bohemian Headchain ($500): More of a glam gal? Wear a statement piece and bold lashes. This headchain is so gorgeous, you will be trying to find occasions to wear it ages after the big day.
6. Inez Beret ($250): This piece is embellished with handmade silk dupion and silk organza kanzashi flowers, making it the perfect juxtaposition between modern and pin-up vintage.
7. Beaded Leaf Headband ($310): The pearls give off a vintage feel and we can sense that everyone from your flower girl to grandma will be jealous.
8. Silk Flower Hair Clip ($68): This bridal headpiece is made with silk roses and matching rose bud and leaves. You or your flower girl will adore it.
9. Bohemian Head Chain ($205): Exotic and immensely unique, this piece is for all you boho brides.
10. Art Deco Hairpeice ($315): Did you just walk out of a Fitzgerald novel? Channel your inner flapper with a blinged-out skull cap.
11. Shooting Star Bobby Pins ($135): A set of three rhinestone-studded, filigree-star bobby pins are the perfect little something to brighten up you bridal hairstyle.
12. Floral Headpeice ($315): This lovely lace headpiece is embellished with rhinestone flowers and swirling beaded wire.
13. Woodland Hairband ($60): Simple and stress free, this hairband is for elfin brides having a woodland ceremony.
14. Apple Blossom Hair Twine ($36): Who said autumn weddings can’t feature flowers?
15. Jennifer Behr Wheat Cresent Bandeaux ($220): So fresh and modern, this piece is the epitome of bridal bliss. We recommend rocking a crown braid with it.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
