A bridal head vine is a delicately twisted length of wire, decorated with crystals, pearls, and other ornate features, which is fixed in place with pins and is worn by brides on their wedding day. The head vine can be worn as a stunning standalone bridal headpiece or can be paired with other bridal accessories, like veils, hairpins, or wedding hair combs, to achieve a variety of beautiful looks.

Great Lengths

Long hair vines can also be incorporated into your bridal style when the hair is worn down. Teamed with long beachy waves, a hair vine like the silver floral flexible wedding hair vine 'Lily' can accentuate a laid-back bridal style with shimmer and intricate detailing.  But, please note, extra care must be taken when fixing the vine in place so that it is secured properly.
