Hollywood hair accessories




These days, there’s no need to go overboard on the millinery front – elaborately sculpted and embellished headgear has given way to more subtly elegant hair accessories and smaller scale fascinators.

A simple, but uniquely decorated, Hollywood style headband can bring a touch of glamour to the proceedings at Summer events like weddings and Royal Ascot.










These seriously stylish hair bands by Sheena Holland at ShopCurious are handcrafted using natural fabrics, including feathers and leather - and decorated with original vintage jewellery and curiosities.








Hats can sometimes get in the way, but these are easy to wear and will take you from day into night, without having to worry about your hair getting all messed up.

























You can even make your own, by buying a plain metal or velvet covered hair band and adding your own feathers, trinkets and beads.












However, leading ladies usually have far better things to do with their precious time - like posing for photographers and signing autographs...

Do you?

ok - fashion question - what's the difference between a headband and a fascinator?

Susan said...

A headband is a plain band that goes around the head (the sort of thing that Brigitte Bardot sometimes wore), whereas a fascinator has something extra to capture the attention - ie the headband (or hair band) is embellished with feathers, beads, trinkets, stuff that's curiously fascinating.. though always interested to hear alternative definitions!

PS a fascinator doesn't have to be on a headband, by the way. It can just be a bit of fascinating stuff that's somehow attached to the hair..

I've tried headgear but it looks 9/10 terrible on me.

I'm not a hat girl but I have invested in a few of this type of head gear and 'm kind of loving it!

Only Liz Taylor could have gotten away with a hat like that...worn with her jewels.

Absolutely nothing looks good on my head - I can enjoy looking at others though !

I'm finding myself partial to Liz Taylor's elaborate headgear in the first pic, but subtle works too :)
