Selecting A Band For Your Tiara Or Crown

I’ve made a variety of bands so far and it seems I’m still getting requests for yet other styles, so the purpose of this post is to let you know what I’m familiar with and how each one works. I hope this helps you decide what works best for you and that my readers give me feed back on what people are looking for.

The first type is the vertical comb tiara…

For this style all the ornamentation is attached, perpendicularly, to a hair comb and there are rings attached for bobby pins.  This is a good choice for flat, less puffy hair styles and it’s good for short hair and works better on real hair as opposed to wigs.

 

The most popular is the basic headband…

This type is a basic U band with a ring at each end for bobby pins or a stretch cord, elastic or ribbon to secure it.  The band sits at an angle and the ornamentation is vertical.  Most of my clients find this to be the most comfortable choice, especially performers who need to make quick costume changes.

 

Then there’s the head band with an under-wire…

This is recommended for larger, heavier pieces, the under-wire allows for more bobby pins to give added security.

Of corse, I’m always exploring other options and if you have any suggestions, I welcome them most eagerly!
