How to Wear a Fascinator

The golden rules to remember are to keep the size of the fascinator in proportion to the length of your hair and to match it to the colour of your outfit or highlight a particular colour.. Do not forget to consider your hair colour as well.

If you are not the bride we suggest steering clear of white and to much veiling, the last thing you want to do is stand out for the wrong reasons. Use any other occasion as a reason to stand out, make the most of an accessory that has sometimes been overlooked.

When choosing fascinators for short hair, look to smaller styles so they don’t end up covering most of your style. Small disc fascinators look great with short hair.
If you have medium length hair and plan on wearing it down, you’ve got more choice when it comes to the style and size of fascinator to go for. Simple Fascinators look great if you want to wear your hair down. Full Corsage type fascinators are great for straight hair, they add instant volume to such a simple and favoured hair style.

Putting your hair in a bun is one of the easiest hairstyles to wear with fascinators, go for a style with a narrow headband and avoid tall designs. If you want a fascinator with netting then choose the occasion correctly, maybe not a wedding and try coloured veiling, again matching to an element of your outfit or shoes.

Overall fascinators are generally worn on the side of the head and rule of thumb suggests if you have a parting then position on that side, a lot of designs nowadays and especially with headbands are directional making them easy to wear, if you choose correctly then your accessory can become a talking point at any event.
