Most little girls want to become princesses. Sometimes, these little girls grow up with the fantasy of having jewel-encrusted crowns and dazzling tiaras on their heads instead of ordinary barrettes and hair-ties. It’s perfectly understandable; after all, sparkling hair accessories can make a girl feel special despite a hectic and frazzled lifestyle.

For casual days

Diamond, crystal, or jewel-studded hair accessories can be pulled off tastefully even for less formal occasions. For a casual affair, the rule is to select an accessory that will not overwhelm your hair and face. Even very colorful beads and jewels can look good as hair clips or bands provided you keep your hairstyle simple, and the accessory’s design is elegant but not dramatic.

Very casual clothing such as T-shirts, jeans, and sneakers are typically not recommended with diamond or jeweled hair accessories. However, simple shift dresses and skirt and blouse ensembles pair well with equally simple jeweled accents for the hair.

Keep the outfit and makeup basic

If the diamond or bejeweled hair accessory you selected has a somewhat ostentatious design, the rule of thumb is to keep your makeup and dress simple and muted; otherwise you might end up looking gaudy and too flashy. A basic black or neutral colored dress for semi-formal occasions, with a classic cut and design, can make a great backdrop for diamond hair pieces such as barrettes and hair bands.

Wearing a dress or outfit with a busy, frilly design or cut will only make your entire appearance look overdone.

For formal events

When it comes to more formal or dressier events, a diamond tiara can be worn, provided it is small, goes well with your outfit, and complements your hair and makeup. For complex hairstyles, a more subdued alternative would be diamond or crystal-studded hair bands, hair sticks topped with a jewel, or hair combs with mother-or-pearl inlays to be inserted in a chic chignon.

Funky and fun hair accessories

Diamond and bejewelled hair accessories can also be quirky and fun. If you are attending a gala event or party, or simply want to make a statement with the added panache of diamonds, crystals, gems, or sparkly beads, why not opt for a fascinator?

These not-quite-hats and not-quite-hair-clips have become head-turning accent pieces for any hairstyle and outfit. Often decorated with lace, netting, feathers, and pieces of jewelry and sequins, the fascinating fascinator has earned the reputation of being flamboyant yet always a welcome sight to any dressy occasion (just look at all those fascinator-topped stylish heads at the recent Royal wedding!).

    I love the hair clip. I made my first hat about a month ago, I crochet and had never tried to make hats, my sister was diagnosed with cancer, so I thought now she’s going to need some hats, I made her 3 and believe it or not they were right cute.
