The Loop Market’s handmade bridal hair accessories are sourced from amazing designers around the globe. We have a collection of over 40 beautiful premium hairpieces, to suit any bride. We love all our pieces but we also know that sometimes a girl just wants a shortlist. So, while it was an extremely hard task we’ve listed our 4 favourite pieces below, along with some helpful styling tips.
What do Princess Diana, Kate and Meghan have in common? They were all crowned in dazzling tiaras on their wedding day. Wear a tiara on your wedding day and you will feel like complete royalty. Our favourite tiara from The Loop Market is not your typical princess-style piece that’s encrusted with crystals (although we love those too!). It is this beautiful gold leaf tiara created by Anna Marguerite. We love it because it is botanical, simple and yet so enchanting. The leaves and flowers on this tiara would be perfect for any garden themed wedding.
Tips for wearing this tiara: This tiara suits soft hair styles like loose waves or curls framing the face. When wearing the tiara, make sure it is centred, and not too close to the forehead. This tiara is quite light to wear so you don’t need to worry about it sliding off your head during the day.

Agnes Walker creates only original vintage hairpieces. So we’re super lucky to have some in our Loop Market collection. One of our most loved hairpieces is this curved jewelled comb. We love the detailing of this piece. If you look closely, you will notice an array of perfectly aligned embellishments. The purple, blue and pink tones make it very unique, but of course, can still complement your classic ivory wedding dress.
Tips for wearing hair combs: A few of our favourite hairdressers (The Style Bar, Adelaide and Hair By JC, Melbourne) have used this hairpiece in two different ways. It can be worn at the back of the head like most combs and it can also be placed on the crown of the head. Really, it’s up to your imagination where it goes/ Take extra care when taking off bridal hair accessories such as this one, as your hair can get caught in the embellishments/wire. If your hair becomes caught, your hairstyling might come undone!

The veil is an iconic and classic wedding hair accessory. Veils come in a range of lengths and cuts and are made from different materials. One of our favourite veils from The Loop Market is one by Sibo Designs which is made from soft ivory tulle. This ankle-length veil is is just long enough to flow beautifully as you walk without dragging along the ground. We also love the extra lace edging detail. A veil can be the perfect touch to many bridal outfits. If you’re sceptical, try one with your wedding dress. You’ll be amazed at how your overall look can be transformed.
Tips for wearing veils: Most veils have a small comb attached to them, which can be secured into your hair. Often, it is more secure when the comb is placed in an updo or half updo. However, veils can still work with your hair down. All you need to do is gently tease the crown area so the comb has a place to sit securely. When choosing a veil, make sure the length matches your height and dress type so everything is in proportion.

Floral hairpins are one of our favourite bridal hair accessories and we hope to add more to our collection! Floral pins are delicate and feminine as well as lightweight and versatile. We love this pair by Marisha Pavlishina which can be placed side by side or scattered throughout your hairstyle. These pins are small dainty but can make a huge statement to any hairstyle.
Tips for wearing floral hair pins: Hair pins look stunning in softer bridal buns and half up-dos, and can also be paired with a veil.
