Bitless bridle ideas?

I usually ride my horses bareback with the halter and lead or reins. That's not the most professional look out on trail rides and such. Does anyone have advise of a bitless bridle type thing that is as harmless as a halter, but LOOKS better? Possibly able to be used with a headstall.
I don't want to use a bosal or hackamore. Do they make anything for a bridle headstall that's basicalls just a loop around the nose? I didnt really see any threads that asked this so thought I would see what other may know of. Thanks!

This is what I have: Side Pull Attachment. It's essentially the noseband of a rope halter, just wider. You attach it to a headstall with a curb chain. My mare's previous owner rode her in a rope halter, but it stretched out a bunch and is really loose, so I got that.

Hadden hackamore!
(it's a type of leather bitless bridle that attaches to your regular headstall--Google it)

Why not just ride in your halter?

If your horse listens to it, who cares what anybody else thinks?

Yeah, I don't really ride with anyone anyways, so its really more for me. Im trying to get tack that's actually decent and matching for once. I've never had more then a matching halter and lead rope. Lol

I forgot to mention with the one I had, if you want, you can email the lady and ask for 3 colours rather than 2 if you get fancy stitching (the zigzaggy part) for free. Mine is purple, bright blue, and lime. It's very pretty.

When I decide that I want to ride bitless, I have my choice of rope halters with tied on leads. For a while, I did the soft hackamore thing with the halter and mecate rein, but I got tired of messing with the extra lead.

Although I really like the looks of these and someday when I have that amount of money laying around that I can just blow on something I don't really need, I may get one of these.
