Wedding Hair Accessories: 6 Ways To Top Off Your Bridal Hairdo (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

When planning your wedding, choosing a hair accessory likely falls last on your to-do list. Once your best friend finishes blasting your half-up, half-down hairstyle with holding spray, you reach for a fingertip veil or crystal comb before walking down the aisle. But as designers begin to focus more on beautiful accessories, hair jewels are no longer an afterthought.

Watch the video above for professional tips on how to pull off six bridal toppers, the perfect makeup for each look and how to recycle the accessory once you say "I do."
