Last week at my hair trial, Ariana, my stylist, asked if I’m wearing any kind of head piece to complement my veil. I proceeded to tell her about the “not finding anything I like at a price I’m willing to pay” dilemma. So, she started listing all the places she thought I could find something I like.
Right after the trial, I decided to visit one of the places she mentioned. While browsing the store my eyes fell on this:
It’s almost perfect (I didn’t want to wear any kind of pearls on my wedding day), almost what I was looking for, except”¦it’s a brooch.
Whatever—I can make it a comb, right?
I have meters and meters of wire I bought for my flowers, might as well use it. So I started twisting, trying to imitate a hair comb.
I wrapped it around the needle of the brooch.
And voila! My wedding hair piece.
I was a bit concerned about the weight, but I tried it on and left it there and even forgot I was wearing it—that’s how light it is.
The first time I put it on the wire got a bit loose (can you see it in the picture?), so I double-secured it to the needle (wrapped wire around the needle a few more times), and now it doesn’t move an inch when I put it in my hair. It holds really well and if there’s any kind of problem with it I can always use bobby pins to secure it.
I only regret I didn’t have it by the time of my hair trial so I could see the entire ensemble.
Isn’t it pretty? Would you wear a head piece that is not a head piece?
