Ideas, inspiration and style guides on how to wear your favorite Jennifer Behr pieces. You can also contact our personal stylist for customized tips on the pieces that best suit you.
How to wear a headwrap
Jennifer Behr headwraps are unique in their soft, flexible design. All headwraps are finished with a Japanese hair elastic at back to ensure comfort for all head shapes and sizes. This design allows for increased flexibility and comfort as it conforms to the unique shape of the wearer’s head.
Headwraps are incredibly versatile and can be worn a number of different ways. Styling tips:
Place a headwrap over the top of the hair and loosely tuck strands of hair into the elastic at back to create a loose, romantic, easy up-do.
Position the headwrap an inch from the front of your hairline to create a classic “headband” look. Leave the elastic over the hair in the back or pull hair over the elastic to hide it.
For a bohemian look, headwraps can also be worn low across the forehead.
For more formal situations, the elastic can be cut off and bobby pins can be used to pin the headwrap into hair. Try this for weaving into an elaborate chignon or wearing the headwrap as a draped crown.
How to wear a Diadem
Diadems are halos with a center chain that rests on the head like a deconstructed tiara. Diadems also are a wonderful option for short hair and pixie cuts. Our diadems can be worn with the detail in the front or the back.
Wear with loose natural hair parted in the middle for a classic free-spirited bohemian look. This way the center chain rests along the part. Or break up the part for a messier look.
Twist hair into a low braid, and place diadem over on top of the hairstyle as a chic adornment.
Gather hair into a low chignon and wear a diadem as the centerpiece of your look.
Bangs are alright with diadems! Just wear them as you usually do.
How to wear a Bobby Pin
Bobby pins are incredibly versatile embellishments, perfect for all hair lengths and types. The bobby pins used in all headpieces are the highest quality available, so they hold firm even in thin hair.
Use a crystal bobby pin to pin back bangs for a change of look or when growing bangs out. This can be done by pinning bangs to the side and tucking the bobby pin at the hairline, or by twisting bangs up and pinning at the crown of the head for a mini bouffant.
Tuck a bobby pin along the side of a chignon or bun.
Embellish a braided hairstyle with one or more bobby pins.
Pin back a long section of hair to create a side-swept look.
Take two small sections of hair from near the face and use bobby pin to secure them together at the back of head for a subtle half up half down look.
If your hair is super fine or you want triple security you can always tease the hair a little bit right below where you are using the bobby pin and spray with hairspray before sliding the pin in.
How to wear a Comb
Jennifer Behr combs are made of the highest quality Swarovski crystal on either wire combs or tortoise acrylic combs. These pieces are elegant heirloom quality pieces that can be treasured for years to come.
Use any style comb to adorn a chignon by inserting the comb once the look is secured with hair pins.
Wrap a flexible chignon wrap around a chignon or along a French twist.
The larger tortoise combs are great for securing French twists.
Smaller wire combs are great for pulling side-swept hair back from the face.
Wire combs can be used to make a half up half down hairstyle in the back instead of using a barrette. This is a great bridal option.
Wearing a Veil and a Headpiece
While Jennifer Behr headpieces and accessories can be worn in place of a veil, they are also worn in addition to a veil—this is not an either/or choice. Many brides wear veiling with their hair accessory underneath, so that the headpiece remains when the veil comes off, post-ceremony. This is a wonderful option as the bride is able to remove the veil for the reception while maintaining a beautifully adorned hairstyle.
Bobby pins, combs, headwraps and circlets can all be worn underneath a veil for a carefully considered, sophisticated look. Wear a headpiece in any of the ways listed and add a veil on top. Bobby pins, barrettes and combs are all ideal when placed at the back of the head as they can be seen while taking vows. For brides who are crystal-shy, gold headpieces are an elegant alternative.
Remember that an elegant headpiece is what transforms a white dress into a wedding gown. Not only does a headpiece perfectly complete your bridal look, it also is a heirloom piece to treasure for years to come. And you absolutely can wear the headpiece again…
