Those magnificent tiaras worn by the Percy sisters don't flatter either of them.

Lady Catherine's looks as if she plopped hers on her head as an afterthought on her way out the door and Lady Melissa's looks too large for her head. It looks like it's going to slide down and cover her eyes!

Yes, I agree. Melissa Percy has a long rather angular face with an aquiline nose like her father's. The family coronet did not flatter her at all. Too large. She would have looked better with the Percy tiara, but worn with a not too severe up do. Katie Percy was rather eccentric in the way she wore this tiara. Perhaps she thought it was fun?

It was indeed, and that tiara is just perfection.

So I guess I will be the first to bring up the recent royal brides hair in this thread. The words that come to mind when I see her hair are messy, unkempt, and thrown together. Not only is there hair coming from the sides but also some coming out of the back.

I didn't notice her hair.. I thought that her outfit as a whole was not particularly attractive.. (I don't like criticising someone's wedding dress but it seemed to vbe very generic... and I didn't like the veil.. (too thin) or the tiara. I think as she was an older bride, she could have maybe opted for some other form of headgear, a hat, or ornaments or flowers...

You're correct and perceptive. The long strand which had escaped from the front appeared to have had it's roots -pardon the pun- at the centre parting. It MAY have once been a fringe/shorter layer. Whatever it was, it was clearly too short to have been fixed into the chignon. Back in those heady days when hairdressers could cement a bride's hair within an inch of it's life with hairspray It MAY have been possible to prevent such 'disobedience' -these days more and more brides are wanting to look as if they've done their hair themselves. They want a softening of severity. As a one time hairdresser, I've pulled strands free to aid that look. The logistics which would have been required to prevent escaping strands would have resulted in different hairstyle ie the chignon would have needed repositioning and/or reshaping. Such may not have been the look the bride wanted to acheive -I've noted that her hand frequently strays up to remove a recalcitrant strand from her face. I feel the use of the words "messy, unkempt and thrown together" -because of two escaping strands in an otherwise exquisite look- are an exaggeration.

I did a hasty sketch about an hour before the wedding. I was aiming for ethereal which is exactly what it was. I got the back wrong, but other than that I was spot on about the shape and material. Personally, I thought the gossamer veil was a joy.

You wanted her to wear a hat on her wedding day? :/

I think her hair was the one weak point in an otherwise very successful overall bridal look.

The problem was all from the front, imo.

But according to her hairdresser Serge Normant, the messy bun with strands falling was exactly what Meghan wanted.

Is it possible that the veil ruin her up do? It's very long and even though it's gossamer thin, it must be pretty heavy. The same thing happened to my friend and her veil wasn't even as long

I think the somewhat messy hair is her signature. No reason Meghan would changes just for her wedding. Personally, I like a relaxed look, but it is not to everyone's taste.

My guess is that her hair is being forced to do something it would not naturally do. It's hard to make hair behave without serious interventions that are potentially damaging under those circumstances.

Ethereal is the word I would use to describe her veil also. I thought it was absolutely gorgeous and paired well with her dress.

There'd have been no problem in the days when back-brushing and lacquer were used as a back-up to those other serious and potentially damaging interventions, the very least of which would leave hair with the texture of straw. Back then, it was a question of forcing the hair to do what client and stylist wanted. Now, thankfully, women, generally, and brides in particular, want a more natural look.

In the official couple photos she let loose the front strand. Now, why didn't she do that in the wedding instead of tucking it behind the ear? It would have looked natural and not messy.

Probably because she can have the hairstylist on standby during the photos. Those strands, unfortunately, wouldn't have worked well with the breeze as she was walking up the steps and the carriage ride.
