I'm not sure how I want my hair for my wedding yet, and have my trial next...

I'm not sure how I want my hair for my wedding yet, and have my trial next month. I read that you're supposed to bring your hair pieces to your trial though so you can see how everything looks but as I haven't decided on a style yet I don't know what kind of accessories I'll need (combs/clips/headband etc). I was hoping to make the decision after seeing how it looked in different styles at the trial. What have other people done?

I am planning on taking a few options I like to my trail and see what my hairdresser thinks will work best and go from there. Good luck x

I didn't opt for a veil and really didn't want a headband, this is how my hair ended up on the day! I had one trial and changed my mind after it! 🤦‍️ I had it higher and realised I felt like a right banana! I also bought this accessory with the plan to wear it down! But it was too hot!!!

It cost me £150 to realise I looked better just like this than any of what they offered x

I took my clip to my trial but that's because I had no idea how I wanted my hair and I had chosen the clip because it was the one that was recommended to go with with veil in the bridal shop. So I had my hair style planned to fit the clip. I don't think it matters which way around you do it though - if you try a few different things with the style and then pick what you want, your hair stylist should be able to advise on what type of accessories will work (e.g slides/clips/combs/chains) and you can go shopping for them afterwards. If you're really worried about it you could always have a second trial after purchasing the accessories xxx

This is how i want mine.... with an elbow length veil. & a tiara. You can always have more than 1 trial run, depending on time & cost of cause...

I bought my hair piece after my trial, as the hairdresser recommended the type of hair piece I needed for the style we decided on x

I think it's best to have the hair stylist do a trial and she will suggest what accessories will suit you. Mine had her own hair accessories so you could try them during the trial before you purchase anything.

I wanted to look like me and as I don't have my hair up at all it was easy.. then the dress had so much detail which it made it easy to know what I want... shown a few ideas to the hairdresser and the first trial/hair do was exactly how I imagined myself look on wedding day

I wanted my hair to have a vintage modern feel to it... So my hairdresser had to practice again. Lol I gave everyone involved a challenge. From my hairdresser to the lady who made my brooch bouquet xxxxxxxxx I wanted unique and I got it :)

I knew I didn't want a tiara or headband which made it easier. I went to a Job Richard counter at Debenhams and had a look at combs. I got this one as it's flexible so could be bent into different styles and shapes. I originally wanted my hair up but ended up having it half up half down and the comb worked with both styles. http://m.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/prod_10701_10001_37484 JRTA033300_-1

Not the best pic but I had it all curled and back with a little height. I didn't have anything for my trial as that's the purpose of a trial to try out different styles so why would you need stuff if you don't know? I did go get a bun ring and extensions thought as I have thin hair....so go for your trial and see what they say from there xx

I was told to have my hair piece for the trial but it didn't arrive in time!! My hair stylist was fabulous and it didn't phase her - I was also a bit stuck for ideas but don't worry too much, your hair stylist should be able to give you some advice if your still unsure on your trial :-) good luck X

I had a trial sat, awaiting my tiara but otherwise until I've had another trail I'm not deciding on what I'm def having, then will get other hair bits to go with style. Don't rush with accessories.

The place I went to had a load of different hair pieces to try out and you could order them from there. Check if your stylist has any
