How to wear a Hair Vine: 7 easy ideas

How to wear a hair vine

I love hair vines, they are so pretty and versatile. Perfect for your wedding hairstyle, bridesmaids, or prom. You can wear your hair vine over and over again, unlike a tiara. Here are some hair vine ideas to get you started but the possibilities are vast!

Before I dive in with pretty pictures let’s just clarify how to put on a hair vine. Most hair vines have a Kirby grip at each end or loops to put your hair grips through. These are usually enough to hold it in place, but if you are doing something more elaborate you can just add extra grips along the hair vine to keep it where you want it. Many hair vines, like Selkie Crafts ones, are also very flexible so you can bend and mould them to the shape you want. They come in a range of lengths, Selkie Crafts hair vines are a standard length but you can just get in touch with me to discuss a different length to suit you.

Now, let’s get on with the good stuff. Please note I am by no means a hairstylist, nor a great photographer!

  1. You can keep it simple and wear your hair vine like a headband at the front.
  2. Alternatively, wear it around the back of your head.

3. You can wear it around one side.

4. If you have longer hair and want to wear it down, a trailing style might be for you.

5. You can weave the hair vine into your hair, plaits or waterfall braids do well here. Take care getting the hair vine out your hair again though, it tangles easily!

6. If you fancy wearing your hair in a bun you can wrap the hair vine around the bun, great for buns on the top of your head as well as at the back.

7. Try draping the hair vine over the top of your bun to mix it up a bit. Start from the middle of your bun and drape to the side or just drape across the whole bun.

Should I Wear Gold or Silver?

What colour of metal should I wear? - gold or silver jewellery

Do you look your best in gold or silver jewellery? You probably already have an idea of what suits your skin tone, but let’s be sure. Not to mention where does rose gold and copper come into it all?

It’s all about skin-tone…

Skin tone is not the same as skin colour. You can have darker skin with a cool skin tone, or you can have light skin with a warm skin tone. Skin tone is related to your ethnic background whereas skin colour has more to do with the environment – like having a tan.

So which are you?

Warm skin-tone

  • Your wrist veins look green
  • You tan easily
  • You are likely to have brown eyes & black hair

Choose yellow metals like rose gold, copper, and brass jewellery.

Cool skin-tone

  • Your wrist veins look blue/purple
  • You burn easily
  • You are likely to have blue eyes & blonde hair
Choose light or white metals such as white gold, platinum and silver.

Still not sure what your skin tone is?

If you have a mixture of the above traits you could be neutral skin-toned. You, lucky people, look good in both white metals and yellow metals, so you are free to mix and match gold and silver jewellery.

Most people fall somewhere between warm and cool. The skin tone rule is really just a guideline; your personality and style are the most important factors.
