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!

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!

Bridal hairstyles trends of 2017

25 February 2017
/ / /

We’re back with the 2017 hairstyles trends for the bride! As in 2015 & 2016, we asked Angela of Coiffure du Château to tell us more about what is trendy for the upcoming wedding season.

.

Waves & messy hair

Probably a consequence of the rustic and DIY trends (click here and here for rustic inspirations) that take over so many weddings, bridal hairstyles are also becoming more relaxed. Angela says, “this year is even more “undone” than last year with loose waves, messy, beach “did it myself” hair.”

It may seems funny that many brides would opt to go to a hairstylist to get their hair professionally done only to choose a style that looks as if they did it themselves. But no one would risk doing their own hair for the big day. Also, as many couple focus more their wedding day on the moment itself and not on the details, it is only normal the bride’s look shows this new approach to weddings!

Statement bridal hairstyles

On the other end of the spectrum, there are the brides who think, Go big or go home! After all, it is your big day and it’s the perfect change to live out your fantasies. According to Angela, “Fashion to the max this year, anything goes as long as it’s fabulous and bold!”

For those who liked one of the major trends of last year, you ‘re in luck : “Of course braids are here to stay, so we are seeing those too!” says Angela.

And what can we expect in the future? The hairstylist muses, “I’m thinking more real life princess themes will be coming.”

.

Flower hair accessories

Braids aren’t the only bridal hairstyles trend making a comeback this year: flowers for hair are still going from strength to strength! It is a favorite for bride and their bridesmaids we’ve seen for years and it seems its popularity isn’t diminishing any time soon.

Indeed, when we asked her the accessories trends she knew would be big in 2017, Angela answered without hesitating : “It’s floral floral floral! We’ll see major floral headpieces that make a statement. Crowns of flowers, big and bold or baby’s breath accessories.”

No wonder one of Angela’s favorite bridal headpieces of our 2017 wedding collection is our Marianna flower crown!

Fashion hair accessories at the Morrin Center

7 November 2016
/ / /

Yesterday we made the photoshoot for Capelio’s next fashion collection!

To organize a photoshoot for a new collection is always tedious: you want to surround yourself with the best people who understand your vision and who you can trust, you want to create an atmosphere that reflects the artistic direction of the collection and of course, you want to create breathtaking  photos that will inspire your clients. The process often involves many questiones you ask yourself, with a lot of stress and emotions, especially when you’re a perfectionist. In fact, a designer recently told me that just before her own photoshoot for her new collection, she felt none of her clothes were up to what she had envisonned because of the stress. So it’s not just me then!

But in the end everything went well, largely thanks to the talented people involved who all did a masterful job. So it’s really important for me to thank them properly here :

Angela Baughman and Olivia Eadie of Castle Coiffure;

Simon Trudeau, filmmaker;

Yvon Latulippe, photographer;

Camille Lavoie, makeup;

The models Audrey, Rebekah, Emilie and Charo;

Manon Fortin of the Morrin Center;

And finally Sonia Plourde, designer, for lending us her amazing clothes!

I thank them all from the heart for their incredible commitment, their immense talent and their great cherfulness! Not only did we all worked together to make beautiful photos, the day was also incredibly fun!

The wait until May 2017, when the collection will be launched, will be difficult… But you’ll get a chance to see few previews here and there on our Facebook page, as well as a special Instagram account created especially for the collection : @murdermysterycollection Make sure you also subscribed to our newsletter so you don’t miss anything :

Black birdcage veil and feathers hair piece

1 October 2016
/ / /

Even with wedding season stretching later and later in the year, autumn often means the start of the creative process for the next collection of wedding hair accessories, as well as our limited-edition special collections, like the Butterfly Effect this year and the Pin-Up collection before that. Of course, the creative process never really stop : we’re always picking up new ideas, listenning to our customers’ desires and needs, getting inspired by materials, pictures, movies and the like.

Autumn is when you take it all in, start playing with the materials to do what will become eventually the samples of the next wedding and fashion accessories collections, plan the photoshoot and all the communication tools. During this creative process, sometimes there are accessories that won’t make the final cut even if they’re beautiful and we love them, because sometimes the material is in short supply, we already have similar pieces in the collections, etc.

While we were working on the next limited-edition fashion collection, to be launched in May 2017, we created a beautiful black birdcage veil with feathers on a hair clip. While we do love it and it would work well with the follow-up collection to The Butterfly Effect, unfortunately because of the material used we couldn’t make more than one piece. Look at this beauty :

Black birdcage veil with feather headpiece on hair clip

But good news : it is now available in our “one of a kind” section on Etsy! Like the summer/autumn flower crown with red flowers, you can get it now and you will be the only one in the world to own this beautiful creation!

Its classy look means you can wear it to many events with elegance and style. Get it quick : not only there are only one available, but this bircage veil is perfect for a Halloween party!
