Bridal head chains, sometimes called browbands, are a great way to accessorize your wedding dress. The bridal head chain craze was started by Kim Kardashian. With several other celebrity brides, like Alicia Keys and Camila Alves, and other brides following in her footsteps, they’re perfecting this trendy forehead jewelry style. We love bridal head chains because they work with multiple wedding styles, from retro to boho. And it’s a great way to add some extra bling and sparkle to your overall look. There are different options of bridal head chains available. Our top picks are simple, elegant pieces that bring a touch of romance to your look. Although most of these celebrities wore their hair pulled back, we believe loose flowy locks are very romantic with a browband. Keep in mind, though, that bridal head chains are trendy and they’ll likely date your wedding day look. But, if you yourself are a trendsetter, or are looking for something different for your big day, a beautiful bridal head chain can be just the perfect bridal hair accessory that you are looking for!
Here is an overview of bridal head chains.
Simple Across the Forehead Bridal Head Chains
Simple bridal head chains and headpieces that are made specifically to be worn across the forehead look great with any type of hairstyle. You can also do what Camila Alves did and use a bracelet as a headpiece. Her headpiece was designed as a platinum bracelet, with pearls and pear-shaped center diamonds.
Indian-Inspired Bridal Head Chains
You don’t need to be having a traditional Indian wedding to wear this type of bridal headpiece. Many styles are made with pearls and crystals to go with a more traditional wedding day look. This type of headpiece looks best with your hair parted down the middle or pulled straight back. The Silver Clear Round Rhinestone Floral Bridal Headbands are inspired by Kim Kardashian’s wedding headpiece. These wrap bridal head chains with eloquent silver plated chains that bevel single strands of encrusted clear round cut rhinestones will have you looking like a beautiful and glamorous Indian princess bride on your special day!
Goddess Bridal Head Chains
Grecian Roman styles have made a huge comeback, but they have never really gone out of style. This Grecian Goddess inspired chain headband trend seems to be hitting big during red carpet events and proms. These bridal head chains are best for the bohemian bride, with the hair worn all down parted in the middle (either straight or curly). You can also wear them with your hair up in a smooth updo with either your hair parted in the middle or styled straight back. They also pair well with dresses that come in goddess cuts. These are usually flowy dresses in one bold color and an off-shoulder neck line. Alicia Keys perfectly accented her graceful flowing gown with a historical looking Grecian jewel encrusted headband. It was originally a necklace. She focused her main jewelry in her hair rather than on her gown or around her neck. The overall look was simply elegant, but still she had a lot of bling, which really gave her wedding appearance a very regal look.
Back Bridal Head Chains
These bridal head chains can actually be worn in the back of the head or across the forehead. They look best with a half updo or with hair worn all down. If you choose to wear your hair down with one of these pieces, make sure to put a little back comb underneath your hair to secure the headpiece and to make sure it stays in place! Fergie (below) chose to accent the back of her cascading loose waves with a bohemian crown of chains.
