  • Need some inspiration on hair combs

    Have to make my sisters hair comb for her wedding never made one so I need easy to do ideas. So was wondering if I could have a nose at peoples pictures. I'll be using 5mm Swarovski pearls and 4mm crystals. Should I use long headpins or wire to fasten.

    Definitely use wire - I've only made a few before but have a commission for 5 tiaras for a wedding on the strength of the few combs I've done. I used florists wire on the combs I did but from searching for tips about tiara making, I have assumed that I should use 0.4 mm wire so I just ordered a load of that.

    Combs are fairly easy - just keep wrapping nice and tight and make sure the crystals are in place and that the ends are tucked in.

    Good luck.

      I think I have one on my website, its prob under hair accessories, maybe under bridal, anyway I made it like a mini tiara but lots of people make wire flowers or you can have wire shooting out like a firework, combs are less scary than tiaras cos they are smaller!

          need more info really, what length, where is it going, what sort of look does she want? Use decent wire, non tarnish silver, 24 guage should be ok.
