Feathers, chains, and flowers: a headband roundup #Fashion Porn#affiliates#feathers#flowers in hair#headpiece#superficial snack#veil alternative January 3 | Catherine Clark enidjcoleslaw This post features offbeat affiliates, meaning that if you buy something featured, you'll be financially supporting this site's mission of bringing awesomeness to readers everywhere. Photo from FunnyPeopleCo The Offbeat Bride Tribe was buzzing recently about the trouble of finding killer headbands for wedding hairstyles. And you know what, it has been a long time since we talked headbands, which is a shame since they are awesome for long-haired and short-haired brides alike, and for any hair texture. The last roundup we did was a little on the wild side, so let's see if we can dig up something for everyone. Adorn yourself in a big ol' gorgeous flower with the Tranquil Skies headband. Here's a short style rockin' the Crystalline Fountains headband. Shabby fabric flowers are a favorite and can totally be worn every day after the wedding. This beaded headband has a retro '20s feel. Ooh, layered and beady! Fabulous fascinators and alternative headpieces for fearless brides Redux Vintage has been supplying me with amazing fascinators for years (I even gave one of them to Ariel for her birthday). Then I saw... [more] This one brings the outdoors to your noggin in a super lovely way. Plus, I'm pretty sure you can wear the veil on the front or the back. This modular cat ear headband reminds me of this cat-eared wedding. Loads of feathers = loads of fun. Don't be afraid! This is a vintage find, straight out of the '60s. And OMG the color.

I love the last one, especially. I've been trolling etsy for something similar, but without the veil. Now for a special request: You've done headpieces, shoes, and fashion. How about eyewear?? (I mean glasses porn, people!) I've looked at all of the "brides in glasses", but I would be very interested in styles considered just for a wedding. 10 agree Reply I would be so down for an eyewear roundup! Awesome idea. 7 agree Reply While we're speaking roundup ideas — I'd love to see a roundup of coloured veils like the last picture and the recently featured black veil, or has that been done already? 0 agree Reply That last one reminds me of the blobular head-covering-hat-thingy that Dolly wears in the Family Circus comic. OMG, I just admitted that I look at the Family Circus! 0 agree Reply I had my elbow-length veil attached to a headband! It was such a great idea from my dressmaker because it had a 50's look to match my dress, and was super easy to wear with my hair down as I didn't need a comb or pins. Headbands rock. 0 agree Reply Oh my, those shabby chic flowers almost exactly match the ones on my dress (I also found a handbag in the sales covered in them, reduced from £150 to £20, bargain!). I think I may have just found the answer to my "What the hell do I wear on my head?" dilemma! <3 you so much for this Superman! 0 agree Reply Cute suggestions! I have my heart set on a crystal bow headband. I have a sleek chin length bob and just want to look like a sweetheart rather than a "princess". I love that headbands don't require a fancy hairstyle to look special. 0 agree Reply Hell Yeah… bring back the '60's! 0 agree Reply oh my goodness, I fell in love with that first one! Though I'm considering a floral headband, I want a "backup" just in case my wildflower DIY experiences fall flat. Gorgeous! 0 agree Reply I'd love to wear the cat-ears but I think the in-laws already reckon I'm a bit of a crazy-cat-lady already The 1920's looking beaded headpiece looks great though. Maybe I should Gatsby it up a bit! 0 agree Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
