Fascinators: These are relatively new in popularity in the States, but have been popular in England for decades. The fascinator is hat-like in that it employs structure to create the design. From a simple silk flower to nest of lace and feathers, the fascinator style spans simple to elaborate designs. Typically worn without a veil or a birdcage style or blusher style veil.
Headband: This style is just like the one you would wear during the day, but much more embellished. Headband headpieces can be embellished with everything from fresh flowers to ribbon to pearls, jewels, crystals and beyond. The headband can be worn across the top of your head or pulled forward, across your forehead, for a relaxed, bohemian vibe.
Clips/Combs: These add just a bit of embellishment and work best with some sort of undo hairstyle. Added on the back of a head with a low bun or at the crown with a higher undo, clips and combs are secured to the veil and then added to your hairstyle.
Juliet Cap: This headpiece is the most common to be worn alone if you select to not wear a veil. It looks both glamorous and effortless when worn over loose locks. When adding a veil to this style, the juliet cap is typically worn over the fabric creating a 'capped' effect.
Tiara: These jeweled crowns sit atop your head and come in a variety of sizes and embellishments. The veil can sit under or come out of the edges of the tiara.
