How To Choose the Right Bridal Headpieces For Your Face Shape

Choosing the perfect bridal headpieces is as important; they can make or ruin your entire wedding appearance.

Just like hairstyles, bridal hair pieces should complement your face shape to enhance your bridal look.

In this blog, we will guide you through selecting the ideal bridal headwear for your face shape, ensuring you shine on your special day.

Begin With Determining Your Face Shape

Before diving into finding the perfect bridal headpiece for your face shape, it's crucial to identify your face shape first. To determine, pull your hair back and look straight into a mirror.

Sketch the outline of your face with a lip liner or a piece of string and compare it to the descriptions below:

1. Oval Face

The forehead is slightly broader than the chin, with a gentle taper to the chin and balanced proportions.

2. Round Face

Equal width and height with soft, rounded edges. The cheeks are usually full.

3. Square Face

Strong, angular jawline with equal width across the forehead and jaw.

4. Heart Face

Wider forehead with a narrow, pointed chin. The face is broader at the forehead and tapers to the chin.

5. Long Face

The length of the face is significantly longer than the width, with a long chin and sometimes a high forehead.

Bridal Headwear for Oval Faces

Oval faces are a dream to work with when it comes to bridal headpieces. You have the privilege to pick from a wide range of styles, from classic tiaras to modern hair vines, all of which can enhance your naturally balanced features.

For instance, a tiara can add a touch of royal elegance, while a classy wedding headband for the bride can offer a more understated, romantic look.

The symmetrical proportions of an oval face also allow you to experiment with different placements of your headpiece, whether you prefer it to be centered or slightly off-center.

Perfect bridal hairpiece you can go with?

  • Tiaras and Crowns
  • Headbands and Hair Vines

Bridal Headpiece Styling Tips For Oval Face

  1. Position the headpiece centrally or slightly towards the back for a balanced look.
  2. Experiment with different styles, from tiaras to combs, as most will suit an oval face.
  3. You can style it with the BELLE Wedding Headband for the bride to add a delicate, romantic touch.
  4. Consider a statement piece like the ERICANA Swarovski Wedding Forehead Headpiece for a royal, elegant appearance.
  5. Try asymmetrical designs for a modern twist to highlight your natural symmetry.

Bridal Headwear for Round Faces

Round faces have broad cheeks and a rounded chin with equal width and height. The goal is to create the illusion of length and add angles to balance the natural curves.

This can be achieved by selecting headpieces that add height and vertical lines, which elongate the face and make it appear more oval. Avoid designs that add width at the sides, as they can accentuate the roundness of your face.

Hairpieces to go with?

  • Asymmetrical Designs
  • Hair Vines and Pins

Headpiece Styling Tips for Round Face

  1. Avoid full headpieces that add width. Instead, opt for pieces that create height.
  2. Position headpieces slightly off-center or towards the top of the head.
  3. Style with asymmetrical designs like the AUDREY Swarovski Wedding Hair Vine to draw the eye upwards.
  4. Choose vertical lines in headpieces such as the TIFFANY Swarovski Bridal Headpiece to make the face appear longer.
  5. Experiment with high-set headbands to add height and elongate the face.

Bridal Headwear for Square Faces

Square faces benefit from headpieces that soften the angles and add a touch of roundness.

With a strong, angular jawline and equal width across the forehead and jaw, the goal is to choose headpieces that introduce curves and soft elements. This creates a more balanced and romantic look, softening the overall appearance.

Ideal bridal hairpieces?

  • Curved Designs
  • Floral or Leafy Patterns

Headpiece Styling Tips for Square Face

  1. Choose headpieces with rounded or curved elements to balance the angular jawline.
  2. Position the headpiece towards the front or side to soften the facial structure.
  3. Opt for floral designs like the SAVANAH Swarovski Bridal Headband & Pearls Headpiece to add softness.
  4. Opt for delicate details such as those in the NATALIA Swarovski Luxurious Bridal Headpiece for a romantic touch.
  5. Experiment with asymmetrical placements to break the symmetry and soften the angles.

Bridal Headwear for Heart Faces

For heart-shaped faces, the aim is to draw attention to the eyes and cheekbones while balancing a wider forehead and narrow chin.

This can be achieved by choosing headpieces that add width at the temples and avoiding those that emphasize the width of the forehead.

Perfect bridal hairpieces?

  • Side Combs and Clips
  • Hairbands and Vines

Headpiece Styling Tips for Square Face

  1. Place the headpiece above the ear or along the hairline.
  2. Choose designs that add width at the sides of the face.
  3. Carry side-sitting headpieces like the SORAYA Bridal Swarovski Headpiece to highlight cheekbones.
  4. Opt for designs that balance the forehead and chin, such as the DINARA Swarovski Luxurious Wedding Headpiece.
  5. Experiment with headpieces that add volume at the temples.

Bridal Headwear for Long Faces

To balance a long face, the key is to add width to your headpiece and avoid designs that add height. This helps create a more balanced look by shortening the length of the face visually.

Perfect Bridal Hairpieces to Go With:

  • Forehead Bands and Tiaras
  • Wide Headbands

Headpiece Styling Tips for Round Face

  1. Position headpieces horizontally across the forehead.
  2. Opt for designs that add volume at the sides.
  3. You can wear a wedding hairband like the RAIYA Swarovski Bridal Headpiece to add horizontal lines.
  4. Choose wide headbands such as the GRETA Swarovski Bridal Headpiece to balance the face length.
  5. Avoid high-set headpieces that add vertical length to the face.
