Head over the right online store and you will be mesmerized by the gorgeous collection at a diverse price range. However, if you are a newbie to this head gear then here is our guide to pick and style these beauties to absolute perfection.
Colour is key
Getting a flattering colour of fascinator is half the battle won when it comes to styling one. It is a wise idea to plan your outfit including the shoes and handbag before going fascinator shopping. This colour of your outfit will guide you in choosing the right colour of fascinator that gives a cohesive look. You can go for a classic look by getting the accessory in the exact same colour or within the same colour family as your dress or you can make a bolder statement by going for a fascinator which is in a different colour that your dress. A pop of colour in the form of a fascinator is, especially, effective when you don an all-black or all white outfit.
The colour of your hair is also quite a determinant for the fascinator you choose to pick. Earthy colours like deep green, beige and brown are a great choice for redheads. Pops of bright colours like yellow, pink and red with brown hair are a match made in heaven. And, soft shades of warm pastels like coral, lilac, powder blue is perfect for blonde hair.
Your face matters
For beauties with a long face, fascinators that have a longer design and add length to their shape are ideal. For those with an oblong face can benefit from fascinators that sit in a way to hide your forehead to balance out the length of your face. Those with a strong and heavy jaw line can sport a style which is wide.
Where to put it
Traditionally, fascinators are worn on either side of the face where the parting of the hair rests. However, it is not uncommon to see fascinators place in the front for those willing to take some risk in their fashion game.
If you plan to wear your hear sleek and chic in styles like a low pony or slicked back up do then a smaller fascinator will give you a timeless sophisticated look. For fascinators of a more considerable size, it is a better idea to go for hairstyles with some volume such as curls and waves.
Hair type and length
Fascinators come attached to clips, combs and bands. If you have shorter hair or thinner hair then bands work best for you. Clips are great for those with hair of medium thickness so the clip has enough to hold on to. Combs work best with thicker hair which can often be coarse which gives the comb a very good grip.
