Sparkling hair accessories to bring out the princess in everyone

December 28, 2010 | 11:02 am


With the new year upon us and all the buzz about the royal wedding next spring, sparkling headbands and hair accessories feel very appropriate for those who want a playfully regal look.

While few of us will ever don a diamond tiara, these headbands are great for a New Year’s EveDazzling_headwraps  event or the bride-to-be on her wedding day. For more casual occasions, wear one with messy tresses, jeans, ballet flats and a boucle jacket for a cool and disheveled romantic finish.

New York-based accessories designer Jennifer Behr makes elaborate and somewhat edgy headbands that are amazing for a wedding or more dressed up affair. For the everyday, good old Goody does the trick with a lightly embellished headband or rhinestone clip.

And the L.A-based company makes wedding veils, colorful headbands and crystal-encrusted pieces that can be dressed up or down.

If you’re feeling inspired to don a royal look, throw on an embellished headband to wear as your own personal tiara.
