Vintage Bridal Headpieces For Your Bridal Hairstyle


Birdcage, Fascinators, and Pillboxes

The birdcage is a stylish vintage hair fashion accessory that has lots of character. Many modern brides love its audacious feel and also the various ways to wear them.

The birdcage in itself consists of a French netting fabric that can be attached to many different hair accessories. The most common ways to add it to your hairstyle is by using a comb or a small fascinator.

Comb and Hair Twists

The beauty of these hair adornments resides in its fineness. Although they are usually smaller than their crown and tiara counterparts, combs are very versatile and delicate. They can be added to pretty much any hairdo in many distinct ways.

Used them to hold the wedding veil in place, with a high bun hairstyle or to a side braid. They can also make a gorgeous contrasting element when mixed with a messy updo hairstyle.

On the other hand, hair twists are simple yet enchanting hair accessories that can be used in all hairstyles.

They come in many shapes, textures, and colors. Additionally, they are lightweight and easy to put in place. Therefore they’re a good option if you’re unsure what hairdo you want for the big day.

In some cases, it’s easier to add hair twists to a different hairstyle than to other types of vintage bridal headpieces like birdcage or a diadem.
