Step #1:
Begin by holding the comb upside down, with the concave side upward, as in the photo. Both layers of tulle are pulled backward. The blusher, which is the shorter layer, is on top.

Step #5:
Adjust the tiara so that there is no gap between the veil and the tiara. For a snug fit, you may have to gently bend the tiara band to fit the shape of your head. If there are thin metal fingers on the tiara, these may also be adjusted for the most comfortable and secure fit.
** Note: the combs do not bend, only the headband or tiara style headpieces will bend (see an example of a comb on the right).

Step #6:
If you have pin loops like these, secure the tiara with bobbypins through the pin loops to hold it in place.

NOTE: If you’re wearing your hair down, without a veil, slant the tiara like this for best effect. Don’t perch it on top of your head or you’ll look more like a beauty pageant winner than a bride.

IF YOU ARE WEARING THE VEIL AT THE TOP OF THE HEAD, it should join the base of the tiara, with no gap. The veil may also be sewn onto the tiara with invisible thread. Many brides sew snaps or use velcro to attach the veil. This way you can remove the veil for the reception and still wear the tiara. You will want to remove the veil to be able to dance, and to prevent it from being pulled off when that long lost relative gives you a bear hug in the reception line. But you will want to leave the tiara on so that everyone will be able to see, when they look at their photos afterward, exactly who the bride was.

Gently raise the top layer of the veil (the blusher) over the tiara.

WHEN WEARING AN UPDO, the tiara should be placed well back, against the hair. Keep in mind that if you have a long face, you may want to choose a low, flat tiara or headband because a high, pointed tiara will make your face look even longer. If you have a round face, you will look good in almost any tiara shape, but a tiara that rises to a point in the middle will be most complimentary. Finally, if you have a petite face, be careful about choosing a really large tiara as it may overwhelm you. The tiara should bring attention up to your face by framing it, not attract attention away from it.
