Coming to terms

You might not believe it from the sheer number of posts I've written about this, but I'm starting to come to terms with my follicular shortcomings. In fact, I'm starting to have a pretty good idea about what my hair should look like on game day, and although it's not strictly necessary, I'm thinking it will involve a sparkly clip of some sort. I used to imagine I'd wear a flower in my hair, but I don't think it's the look I'm going for, after all.


I have a couple of criteria in mind. First, I'm looking for something around four inches wide—no dainty hair pieces for my 'do. Second, I'd like it to be sparkly rather than "organic" (that is, something that looks more like hair jewelry and less like a fabric flower). And third, I'd prefer it to have a gold tone rather than a silver one. Here are some pieces I've encountered that I would consider.

Bel Aire Bridal comb, $93 at Best Bridal Prices

Anthony David Angelina barrett, $34.99 at All Things Trendy

Gold Sabine comb, $72 at Lulusplendor

I'm not totally sure where or how I will wear my "hair jewelry" yet, but I'm pretty sure I will—if just to keep it interesting once the veil is off (I won't be wearing the veil at the reception).

Which is your favorite? Or do you have a better idea?


  1. I love it! The hair jewelry is going to look stunning against your dark hair!

  2. Ohhh, I really like the Bel Aire one!

  3. I was thinking a sparkly clip for myself as well...I love the 2nd one but they are all beautiful. Hair is such a hard inspiration to nail down...ive been looking forever for curly pics!
