When we spied The Feathered Head's creations (custom-crafted by owner/designer Andie Cohen-Healy), we knew it was the ultimate fusion of antique and vintage materials, natural elements, and alternative designs that would make our readers salivate AND jump at the awesome discount Andie has going for us.
Andie sources the most amazing materials to create her feather and rhinestone fascinators, vintage wax crowns, nature-inspired vintage millinery wreaths, modern asymmetrical tulle headbands, birdcage veils, and traditional veils.
Andie incorporates unexpected embellishments into the headpieces, such as soft, luminous feathers, family heirlooms, vintage jewelry, silk flowers, quills, pre-loved millinery, luxe fabrics, crystals, and natural elements. Every fascinator, clip, comb, headband, hat, or veil from The Feathered Head is one-of-a-kind and crafted with close collaboration with you and anyone you want involved. Let's hear about the process from Andie herself:
Everyone I work with is seeking something different from the mainstream, and my job is to understand how that uniqueness will translate into a headpiece that represents and thrills. Each headpiece I hand-craft, restore, or add to the collection is done with thought and care, and it's a special moment when a bride and headpiece “find” each other like long-lost loves.
Working one-on-one with women of all stripes, I've learned that Offbeat Brides can be traditional and traditional brides can be offbeat. No one is one-dimensional. I welcome ALL brides, whether they're confident, conservative, partial to squirrel skulls, same-sex, mixed race, boho, plus-sized, or honoring a theme. Everyone should have the wedding headpiece of their dreams, even if it hasn't been designed yet!
Oh Andie, you GET US!
Now let's hear from a couple of Andie's clients who worked with her to craft their own headpiece. Plus, we've got a highlight video reel of some of her faves:
I am so glad to have happened upon Andie and The Feathered Head. I truly had no idea what I wanted in a headpiece but knew I wanted something unique and antique. I was able to go to Andie's AMAZING studio and look at her incredible collections of feathers and treasures. I fell in love with the antique bug brooch and pink ostrich feathers, and she did the rest! She also made a beautiful boutonniere for my husband using the feathers I loved that didn't make it into my headpiece. I am so thankful I met Andie and look forward to continuing to champion her work and adding to my collection! – Alison, Los Angeles
I struggled to find a unique headpiece for my wedding in Kenya. I couldn't have asked for a more inspired, seamless experience than with The Feathered Head. Andie was beyond delightful to work with — what a patient, creative, and beautiful soul. She created the most gorgeous piece beyond my dreams! – Liza, Los Angeles
The 1920s vintage wax orange blossom wreath-crown from The Feathered Head that I wore truly made my outfit, and I was able to incorporate it in my hairstyle for the ceremony and pictures (down), and the reception (up for dancing). I went for a romantic, vintage, and bohemian look, and we added little daisies to the headpiece which were also featured in my floral arrangements and bouquets. The headpiece was perfect! – Jessica, Chicago
