6 May 2017
/ / /

Most of the time, families are very involved in weddings – some will even say too much! But there’s no denying parents and siblings can be a great help when it comes to putting together your wedding, especially mothers. Over the years, I have had the pleasure of of working with mothers of the bride on different occasions. For example, I remember this mother of the bride who ordered the wedding hair accessories for the whole bridal party! Or another mother of the bride who gave her own bridal headpiece (from her own wedding decades ago!) so we could use it to create new wedding hair accessories! And also, a mother of the groom who worked around the couple’s indications so her headpiece would reflect their favorite sports teams. How cute is all these stories?!

So with Mother’s Day coming up, I wanted to celebrate mothers – so why not kill two birds with one stone? You can now take advantage of a special promotion on our suggestions of wedding hair accessories for the mother of the bride (and groom!) with 25% off til the end of Mother’s Day! But hurry : quantities are limited!

How to wear a headband

23 April 2017
/ / /

Personally, I love to wear a headband: it’s both elegant and simple, on top of being an accessory easy to wear. Not to mention, there are so many designs out there, you’re sure to find one to your tastes! I like its practical side – it holds your hair in place and out of our face all day. I also like its aesthetic side, giving a touch of finesse to any outfit.

But hey, it’s easy to fall into a routine and always style your hair and headband the same way. So like we did for our Clara wedding hair bow, here are suggestions of hairstyles to wear with a headband!

The accessory: our Basia headband

Inspired by the Gatsby and the 20s trends, our Basia wedding headband is also well-suited for everyday wear. You can choose it in white or ivory, but also in black. You can order it as a ribbon or with an elastic finish for a “closed” headband. As a wedding hair accessory it is not only perfect for the bride, but also for the bridesmaid, the flower girl, and even the wedding guest!

With a bun

In this case our Basia headband is used only as an ornament, but the addition of this hair accessory can completely change a look. Besides it can hold the little crazy hair that tends to get out of place during the day.

Idea: Make a braid at the base of the bun for a nice touch!

 

With a braid

One of the biggest hair trends of the moment, the braid is popular both with brides-to-be and with fashionistas. Give structure to your braid and make sure your hair stays in place throughout the day by adding our Basia headband, which will also allow to frame our face. You will be both awesome and original!

With a ponytail

The ponytail is one of the most practical hairstyles, perfect when we want to quickly pull up our hair. Combine usefulness to beauty by adding the Basia headband to keep your hair in place while looking gorgeous!

Half-up, half-down

A perfect hairstyle if you want it all : your hair loose and free, but up and out of your hair at the same time! This hairstyle allows both a casual but also neat look. Complete your hairstyle with the Basia headband for a fancy touch!

Hairstyles with a bow hair clip

16 April 2017
/ / /

I always encourage brides to choose wedding hair accessories that are easy to wear after the big day, whether it’s for them, for their bridesmaids or other members of the bridal party. I find that wearing again a wedding hair accessory in everyday life is a great way to remember this special day, in addition to feeling gorgeous of course!

If you’re not used to wear hair accessories however, you may be at loss with ideas on how to style your hair. So here are some hairstyle ideas on how to wear a wedding hair accessory after the wedding day!

 

The wedding hair accessory: our Clara bow hair clip

A perfect headpiece for the bride, but also for the bridesmaids, the flower girl and even for the mother of the bride. In fact, not long ago, we suggested this accessory for your bridesmaids if you’re wearing a headpiece with a bow, like your Chantal birdcage veil for example. (Click here to see The article)

Here are different ways to wear your Clara bow hair clip after the wedding day!

 

Under a bun

Every women knows the trick. You’re having a bad hair day? Didn’t have time to wash your hair? Style it in a bun and off you go! To give a chic and elegant twist to your hairstyle, just slip our Clara hair clip under the bun, on the back of the head, and voilà!

Idea: If you very skilled at styling your own hair, you can make a braid that starts from the neck to your bun.

Braids are very trendy at the moment, both as a wedding hairstyle and in everyday life. (Click here to read about 2017 wedding hairstyle trends) Add a touch of originality and fun to your hairstyle by adding your Clara hair clip!

On the side of the head

Most of us like to let our hair down and loose, but nobody likes when hair falls in our eyes or our face. Prevent this by fixing the hair around your face with hair pins, then add the Clara hair piece on the side to complete your look. The result? You will look both relaxed and stylish!

Idea: Use your curling iron to add some waves in your hair!

Half-up, Half-down

A simple and easy-to-make hairstyle, having your hair half-up andhalf-down is great to let your hair loose but without it changing constantly. Hide your hair band under your Clara hair clip for a neat and chic but also casual look!

Photoshoot coming soon!

8 April 2017
/ / /

Phew, between the wedding season (and the orders for bridal accessories!) upon us and preparing for the launch of Capelio’s 2017 fashion collection Murder Mystery, there is less time to update the blog! I still wanted to write a post to tell you about the photoshoot of last Sunday with the photographer Cathy Lessard, makeup artist & hairdresser Camille Savoie and our model, the beautiful Andréanne.

Those who follow Capelio on Facebook and/or Instagram will remember that recently we were looking for a model to participate in this project: we selected Andréanne and the photoshoot unfolded in an ambiance of fun and laughter! The idea behind this photoshoot was to show how it is possible to wear an accessory several different ways and with several different looks. Camille did a great job and I can’t wait to show you the pictures!

The result will be the subject of an article on Capelio’s blog that will show how you can completely change your look with different accessories, make-up and hairstyles – also, I think it may inspire more than one bride on how to wear your wedding hair accessory after the wedding day!

For now, I leave you with few behind the scenes pictures!
