Hair jewelry is a fashion trend on the rise. We have not only seen this on the red carpet, but also in premier bridal magazines.
Hair jewelry in the form of hairpins, hair combs, headbands and hair sticks are embellished with rhinestones, crystals and/or pearls for an elegant sparkle that can dress up any outfit, on any occasion. Flowers and feathers are becoming quite popular as wedding day hair accessories also. Brides and the bridal party can add sparkle to their ensemble that doesn’t stop at the necklace or earrings. Beautiful hair jewelry isn’t just for the wedding. Special occasions such as prom, quinceanera, pageants, homecoming, sweet sixteen, and parties are all celebrations worthy of the addition of elegant hair jewelry and accessories.
Whatever the theme of your special event, crystal hair combs or rhinestone headbands are an elegant accessory for long hairstyles. If you are wearing an upswept hairstyle, consider adding a rhinestone, pearl, or feather hair comb, at the side or back of the head to achieve sparkle from all angles.
You can turn an everyday ponytail into a glamorous fashion statement, for work or party, with the simple addition of a rhinestone barrette. It will give you a put together look without a lot of time or effort. Hair combs adorned with crystal, pearls or flowers are a sophisticated hair accessory for the updo and can act as a frame for the hairstyle. Hair combs come in many lengths and widths, so finding the right one for your look won’t be a challenge.
Probably the most popular trend in hair design is decorated hairpins or hair sticks. These accessories are either single stone or clusters of stones attached to the end of a hairpin or hair stick. As these are usually small, many can be sprinkled throughout the hair for a sparkling understated look. They are beautiful when used under a wedding veil for an element of surprise.
Hair pins and hair sticks are an excellent accessory for prom, party or special occasion when you want extra flair. For the bride, hair jewelry may be used in addition to a tiara or headpiece for sparkle from all angles and extra pizzazz in your photos. Don’t forget the bridal party; they can coordinate with the bride by wearing similar hair jewelry, less the tiara and veil.
These are fun ideas, but don’t let trends dictate your wedding or party fashion. Be true to yourself and allow your jewelry and accessories to make a statement about you!
