The Bag Hag Diaries: Tiara Tutorial #RoyalWedding #Fashion @TheBagHag

I am posting this particular photo below because I wanted to show Zara’s profile with the tiara.

imageShe’s lovely!

A LOT of hairdressers make a mistake with how to properly secure (and “seat”) the tiara if the bride’s wearing one. The tiara’s supporting “sides” (a thinner metal that goes to the back of the hair to secure it) should NOT be visible. I often attend weddings and see a lot of tiara- wearing brides with that ghastly metal sticking out, for everyone to see.  

imageNote the metal on the side of the tiara sticking out for all to see. It’s unsightly

Hairdressers (and brides) should take lessons right here. Hide that metal, please! It’ll make the bride look a lot prettier and it won’t look like the tiara was just hastily placed on the crown of the head (like the bride in the above photo)
Another thing to note about tiaras: a handful of them (at least the ones I’ve seen on royalty) have extenders to increase height of the tiara, but what they do to hide them is to wrap them with pipecleaners that are close in color to their hair.
Here’s Princess Diana wearing the Spencer Tiara

imageNotice the pipe cleaner wrapped around the base


 Princess Letizia 

imageI love this tiara on Princess Letizia

So if you are to be given or loaned a tiara for your wedding by either your parents or your inlaws, do check if the tiara has a height extender with which you should wrap in pipecleaners close to your hair shade :) And instruct the hair stylist on not to show the metal sides :) Then you’re all set on your wedding day :)
And now going back to Royal Bride Zara Phillips, congratulations are in order for the new couple, from your lowly commoner fan on the other side of the world :)
