It is becoming increasingly trendy for wedding themes and styles to blend past styles and traditions with modern customs. Thanks to movies such as "Ever After," and "Lord of the Rings," the Renaissance period is a popular inspiration. Many brides are trading their tiaras in for circlets, a kind of upside down tiara that is worn in the front of the hair, hanging down on the forehead. There are a variety of types of hairstyles that can be worn with circlets. Most styles are very natural and consist of waves, braids or twists.
Braids were a very popular Renaissance style, and work well for wedding hairstyles with circlets. There are a few different methods for wearing braids. Part the hair down the middle, and pull two sections of hair on each side back, away from the face. Braid each section and secure them in the back of the hair. You can use regular braids or French braids for this style. Set the circlet on the front of the head, above or overlapping the braid. A simple braid hanging down the back also works well with a circlet style. Start the braid at the nape of your neck for a loose braided style, and allow a few tendrils of hair to hang around the face.
Twists are another Renaissance style that are popular with circlets. Separate a section of hair on each side of your face. You can use as much or as little hair as you like. Twist each section back, away from your face and use a hair clip to secure them in the back. If you want a twist with more staying power, tuck hair clips into the twist in a few places as you twist it back. You can also add hair to the twist as you work your way back. This will help secure the twist in place. You can use twists with a side part or a middle part. Place the circlet above the twists so it doesn't unroll them as it shifts throughout the day.
Down and Flowing
A very simple bridal style to wear with a circlet is to leave your hair hanging down and loose. Use a curling iron to curl your hair into loose waves, or if you have a natural curl to your hair, allow it to curl naturally. Part your hair down the middle and place the circlet at the front of your head, aligning the centre of the hairpiece with your part. This will give a very romantic, authentic Renaissance look that your groom is sure to love.
