Alternatives to a Tiara
Fashions are changing all the time, and our collections always reflect the latest styles. As fashions change, the number of tiara alternatives available increases. You now have the choice of mini combs, hair vines, combs, side sprays, hairpins, hair clips, flowers and forehead bands. Below is our guide on how to choose and wear these beautiful pieces.
Side sprays are probably the easiest style to wear, as they are often on bands. The decoration sits on the side of your head, and sometimes branches lower down to sweep towards the forehead.
If you are going to be wearing your hair in a chignon, then decoration on a comb or hairpins can be pushed in around the hair to add some subtle sparkle.
The traditional formal French twist enables you to decorate one side of the twist with elaborate decoration, such as a hair vine to really stand out from the crowd.
Twists and plaits create a sense of Grecian style that works well with small hairpins tucked in here and there.
If you choose a flowing hairstyle then a band that comes down on your forehead is a very up to date look. This is also a great look for weddings abroad.
The most important thing to remember is that you need to feel confident and comfortable. Experiment with different positions and different hairstyles. Hairstyles can be worked around your favourite accessories, or vice versa.
