Showcasing her headpieces from the new Anna Sorbie Bridal Headwear range, hairstylist Anna Sorbie discusses three looks that can easily incorporate a headpiece.

1. Textured braid


Headpiece: Multi-use Hair Vine, with Crystal, Sterling Silver and Freshwater Pearls. Can be worn as a halo or headband.

Works best with: This hair vine looks stunning when woven through a braid, particularly a dishevelled braid such as this.

How is it achieved? Hair should be blow-dried with hair texturising products in order to create lots of volume and body within the hair. It should then be set with rollers, to add even more volume and curl. Once rollers have been removed, hair needs to be backcombed, to add texture, body and hold. Finally, it can then be twisted and plaited, in different directions, to create a really relaxed, bohemian style of braid.

How do I ask my hairdresser for this style? Request a dishevelled bohemian plait, with lots of texture.

2. Loose curls


Headpiece: Multi-Use Hair Vine with Crystals and Sterling Silver

Works best with: This piece works with most dresses and hairstyles, as it’s so flexible. It can be worn as a tiara, as a headband or as a halo. This vintage wave looks stunning with the Hair Vine woven through, and really complements this typically romantic style of dress.

How is it achieved? Using a round brush, hair should be blow-dried, adding volume to the roots and twisting the brush through the ends to create curl.

How do I ask my hairdresser for this style? Ask for a vintage curly blow-dry.

3. Simple textured bob


Headpiece: Hair Vine in Sterling Silver with Freshwater Pearls.

Works best with: This has been designed to create the effect of Gypsophila in the hair. It has been joined together with a statement comb, but both can be worn separately. With such statement pieces, it is better to keep the style simple, elegant and fuss-free.

How is it achieved? Hair should be blow-dried straight and smooth.

How do I ask my hairdresser for this style? Ask for a simple smooth textured bob.
