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!

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!

Wedding hair accessories for the bride and bridesmaids

4 February 2017
/ / /

Capelio's collections of wedding hair accessories are not only for brides: our fascinators, headpieces, flower crowns and barrettes are also created with the idea to offer a vast selection for the bridesmaids, the flower girl and the mother of the bride. In fact, you can find in our wedding hair accessories availables various designs that can be matched together by the bride and her bridesmaids to create a visual harmony and a continuity with their wedding outfits.

Here are some suggestions for brides who would like to mix and match the wedding hair accessories of their bridesmaid to theirs - psst, you can also offer them their hair accessory as a thank-you gift to kill two birds with one stone!

Baby’s breath flowers

We already had in our Etsy store a duo of white flowers, with our Gabriella flower crown and some Abby white flowers hair barrettes as a package for the bride. But our Anna Rosa babys breath flower crown is so popular, not to mention everyone loves baby's breath flower, it was only a given that we would create flower hair accessories to go with the flower wreath. Thus how we added the Anita baby's breath flowers combs to our 2017 wedding hair accessories collection!

Therefore now you have the Anna Rosa baby's breath flower crown that you can wear with a veil (a package is available on Etsy of both or we can add the veil directly on the flower crown) or you can wear it on its own. For the bridesmaids, you can order few Anita mini-combs of 4 cm-long with baby's breath flowers. And there you go!

Traditional & birdcage veils

Birdcage veils have been very popular in recent years, but still about half of brides opt for the traditional bridal veil. So we creates two headpieces for the bride using both a birdcage veil and the traditional wedding veil. Last year we created our Vienna bridal headpiece and this year we have included in our collection the Duo headdress.

As the Vienna veil was a popular design last year, we thought to offer a wedding hair accessory with the same inspiration that could be worn by the bridesmaids and other members of the bridal, or by the bride during the reception, for example. Thus the Simone headband was created, made with tulle like a traditional veil as well as with birdcage veil. It's perfect for the bride who wears the Vienna or the Duo headpieces and wants to offer a thank-you gift to her bridesmaids that they will also wear on the wedidng day!

Fabric flowers

Flowers : a must-have detail for any wedding! We see it in the bouquet (of course!) but also in the decoration, in the centerpieces, and much more. No wonder so many brides incorporate them as well in their wedding outfits!

We created our Bloom veil for the bride not only with handmade fabric flowers on a hair clip but also with petals that seem to fly on the veil. The bride wearing this veil will now have the possibility of having her bridesmaids wear at the same time the Petals headband which, as its name indicates, is composed of fabric petals. The pearls among the petals match the centers of the fabric flowers of the Bloom veils, also with pearls.

The Bows

Another very popular detail after the flowers, bows are included in the theme of many weddings. We had created the Chantale birdcage veil on a headband with a fabric bow first for a specific bride of the same name as a bespoke wedding hair accessory - her gorgeous wedding gown had three bows in the back. We loved the result so much that it was later included in our regular wedding collection.

It is however by pure coincidence, while working with the wedding hair accessories of our 2017 collection, that we came up with the Clara bow headpiece. The crin gave it an interesting shape, but it lacked a little something... We add a little bit of birdcage veil, and voila! A wedding headpiece that is original, while staying girly and fun to wear!

The two combine perfectly: the Chantale veil for the bride and the Clara bow hair clip for the bridesmaids!

Bespoke headpiece for the mother of the bride

21 June 2016
/ / /

Here’s a perfect example of how we can adapt one of the existing design of our online store to create a bespoke headpiece for you!

A mother of the bride whose daughter is getting married on the 15th of July came tous few weeks ago because she wanted to have a fascinator to complete her outfit. Not too sure about the exact headpiece she was looking for, she browsed Pinterest to collect ideas. After she got in touch with us, it appeared she wanted something similar to our design Ireland hair accessory on a fascinator base.

Not only that, but this mother of the bride had some lace and material pieces we could use from leftovers cut from her dress. Because she was based in Montreal and we had to work on her bespoke headpiece at distance, we exchanged lots of pictures to make sure the final result fit her taste.

Here you can see the process :

We used two pieces of lace material to add to the fascinator base. We created a pink ribbon with leftover fabric of the dress to included in the ”Ireland” form. And voilà! A bespoke, unique piece that perfectly match the tastes and the outfit of this elegant mother of the bride!
