How do you wear a heavy tiara such as Catherines?
Surprisingly you don't really notice the weight of a heavy tiara if your hair is worn in such a way which can support the height. If you notice, Catherine wore her hair pulled back in a bun, with the tiara sitting at an angle. With advice from your hairstylist, gel can be applied to the hair before it is curled which provides an extra layer of support, other than the hairspray. After the hairstyle is finished the tiara can be be anchored in with bobbi pins where it will not move. Lastly, do not spray your tiara with hairspray. You want your tiara as clean as possible to reflect the gems and crystals. Lastly, be sure to try your hairstyle out in advance so your hairstylist knows what you like, and what will not work. This gives your hairstylist a practice run before the big day.
Don't be afraid of being unique by wearing a tall crown like Catherines. Your wedding day is the day to be the bride you have dreamed about being. With confidence you can wear a crown that no one will ever forget. Be unique and unforgettable.
