I had my wedding hair trial recently and we had some trouble securing my headpiece to my half up half down hairstyle. The headpiece wouldn’t stay put with bobby pins at the ends. The headpiece is about the same length as a headband, so it stops a few inches past my ears (see photo below).
I’m wondering which option would work best to secure my headpiece: Option 1: Attach ribbons onto each end of the headpiece (see photo below). Only downside to this option is that the ribbons may be visible in the hairstyle.
Option 2: Attach hair combs on each end of the headpiece (see photo below)
To secure the headpiece that you want, try to choose a hairstyle that is more textured so it’s less likely to slip through your hair (i.e. a braid). Your stylist can then use a lot of bobby pins to keep it in place. I had my hair stylist put in my hair jewelry and my veil — securing it with bobby pins so it will stay in place. I didn’t want to leave it to the last minute at the venue. Doing it in advance makes getting dressed much less stressful.
Another option is to buy a 6 pack of hair combs (comes in gold, silver and black) from online such as Amazon to attach two of them to your hairpiece. I hope you get the perfect hairstyle nailed down for your wedding day!
Did your hair stylist put the head piece on for you?
Honestly tons of bobby pins, I mean tons and enter them sideways and not flat.
Same with the combs add them in there as well. You may want to get clip in hair extensions to be able to have them hook on to more hair, and grip on the edge of the hair piece. Also not sure if she put texturizing spray that will give the pins grip.
