Top 10 fears and problems when choosing headwear
THE MOST COMMON CONCERNS ANSWERED
In my experience most ladies have got a range of surprisingly common concerns when it comes to choosing their accessories. I’d like to offer some reassurance that there aren’t any problems in over 15 years, I’ve been unable to solve, I’ve answered those I hear most regularly but please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have a different worry.
1. WHERE DO I START? THERE’S TOO MUCH CHOICE, I FEEL OVERWHELMED
This is a very real problem and I completely understand. My website probably doesn’t help as my range of designs is huge, however you don’t have to sort this out alone. I’m here to help, just give me a ring, make an appointment or we can chat on Skype and I can help you narrow down the options and find the perfect piece for you.
2. I WEAR GLASSES
That’s absolutely not a problem, you don’t need to morph into a different person for your special day, or stumble around half blind. We’ll work together to find the best design for the look you want.
3. I DON’T LIKE WEARING HATS
I completely get that, they aren’t something we are used to wearing in this day and age and they can take some getting used to. It could be though that a hat isn’t right for you. Perhaps a fascinator or cocktail hat would be better, or if not a stunning piece of statement jewellery instead. I’m here to help, listen and advise. I’m not here to force you into something that you are going to look and feel awkward in.
4. I’VE GOT SHORT HAIR
That’s fine, the rule book that says brides must have long hair doesn’t exist. There are loads of options to rock your perfect pixie cut or beautiful bob, just ask and I’m here to help. There’s a blog post that addresses this concern directly, there’s a link at the bottom.
5. I DON’T LIKE HEADBANDS, THEY HURT
You are so right! There are a tremendous number of headbands out there that seem to have been explicitly made for torture purposes rather that securing a hair accessory. Mine don’t, I’m happy to send one for you to try, I’ve converted 100’s of ladies but not to worry, there are plenty of other options we can talk through.
6. I’M AN OLDER BRIDE, I DON’T WANT TO LOOK LIKE MUTTON DRESSED AS LAMB
Absolutely, I hear this all the time. There is simply no reason why you should when I have so many gorgeous options for you. I help 100’s of older and second time around brides who don’t want “Princess” or “Boho Babe”, and rightly so. I believe a bride should always look the best version of herself at that point in time, and celebrate with style. Get in touch and I can definitely help.
7. I’VE VERY FINE HAIR, OR I’VE SUFFERED HAIR LOSS. WHAT CAN I WEAR?
Don’t worry, there are still plenty of creative options open to you and I’ve helped plenty ladies with different versions of this dilemma. Alopecia sufferers, cancer patients, or just simply very fine haired ladies, I’ve been able to help them all. If you need help, reassurance or advice, just get in touch.
8. HELP, I GET MARRIED NEXT WEEK
I can’t absolutely promise to help with this one but I will endeavor to do what I can. I may have the materials or timescales to make or I may have a sample you can hire. Don’t be afraid to ask.
9. HATS DON’T SUIT ME
I’d be a wealthy woman if I had a pound for every time this was a conversation starter. It’s true, not everybody does suit a hat but there is something that will suit you, you just haven’t found it yet. The beauty of a personal bespoke service that I offer is that by seeing you, in person, via Skype or photograph, I have the experience to be able to guide you to something that will suit you.
10. I KNOW WHAT I WANT BUT I CAN’T FIND IT
Don’t worry, you are in the right place, I can help. I’ve handled some fairly unusual design requirements in the past or simply tailored pieces to be a more personalised version. Get in touch and we can discuss what I can do for you.
Here are a few more blog posts that you may find helpful too.
Though they are titled as specific to bridal or otherwise, a lot of the advice applies to all headwear.
Don’t forget, I’m always here to help so just get in touch and I’ll be there to help and advise.
Until next time
