Prom fashion: how to choose prom tiara and headband

Are you high school students who are preparing for the prom? Whether you have long hair or short hair, you can always wear some sparkling hair accessories to highlight your prom look. Here are some of my ideas on choosing prom tiara and headband.

How to choose prom tiara?
I believe many women dreamed to be princesses and wear luxury tiaras when they were little girls. You will have the chance to feel like a real princess and wear tiara on your prom. Tiaras are really popular hair accessories for many girls. Before you choose your tiara for your prom, you should think about your prom dress style. Do you want a traditional tiara or a more contemporary tiara?
Different people have different face shapes, you should choose a tiara that suits your face shape. If you have oval face, you are so lucky! You can wear most tiara styles. For girls who have round face, a tiara that has a bit of height or has a peak should be perfect. For long faced girls, tiaras have little height and extend evenly across the head are ideal. Go for a V-shaped peak, if you have a heart-shaped face.  
Bear in mind that the tiara you choose should be consistent with your dress styles. In short, if the dress that you will be wearing is adorned with crystal beading, then it would be ideal to choose a crystal tiara. If the dress is beaded with pearls, then a pearl tiara would be the best style to match the dress as well. View luxury beaded prom dresses here. 
How to choose prom headband?
Many girls choose to finish their prom hairstyle with a tiara. If you think it’s a little too much sparkle for you, you may consider a prom headband. Don’t have any idea for the headband? Why not have a look at the red carpet styles of female stars. I’ve seen so many headpieces that I adore on the red carpet. Keep in mind that if you choose to wear a headband, you’d better keep your earrings simple.
If you just want to pull your hair out of your face, you can opt for thin headbands in black, brown, dark blue and gray. You may head for a larger, fuller headband if you wish to cover roots or control frizz. Narrow headbands will be completely compatible with any length of hair and for any apparel options. If you want a romantic and glamorous look, you can choose headbands that have some additional accessories or details like flowers or brooches.
The most difficult thing for people to wear headband is to keep its position on the forehead. You must take the height of the forehead into account when picking a headband. For those having a low forehead it is recommended to wear the headband along the line of the hair. It will help them make the forehead visually higher. For the rest, central positions are recommended.

Guides on choosing bridal headpiece

Bridal headbands or headpiece can add some sparkle to a wedding ensemble. I believe many brides wish to be true princesses on their special day. Apart from a stunning wedding dress, you also need some accessories to make you look like a true princess. Do you want a luxury wedding veil or a glittering eye-catching tiara? Here are some great ideas on choosing bridal headpiece.


Veil, or not? That’s the big question for 2015 brides! Wedding headpieces are the new rage for the modern bride. There is a plethora of options to wear on your wedding day, not just the traditional bridal veil any longer. Lots of modern brides opt to wear a veil for the ceremony and then swap the veil out for a pretty hair accessory for the reception. The 2015 bridal runways showed anything from intricate jewel design pieces to dramatic pearl head pieces that merge into the hair style to give the illusion of being part of your hair. With the success of the film "The Great Gatsby", many 1920s inspired wedding gowns and headbands became quite popular this year. Click here for 1920s inspired wedding gowns

Compared to wedding veils, headpieces stay in place well and require little maintenance. What's more, they help secure your hair! Also, if you have a hair out of place, all of the sparkles and jewels are quite the distraction, so nobody can notice even the slightest imperfections. I love the diversity of wedding headbands available to brides because the styles vary to accommodate every bride and venue from: boho style, destination wedding, high class country club to an outdoor rustic estate.

A wedding is an important event that brides might plan for years. Unfortunately, weddings can be very expensive. To stretch a wedding budget farther, brides can consider wearing used headpiece. Before purchasing this type of used bridal hair accessory, brides-to-be should examine the headband or tiara for any damage. The first way to check for loose rhinestones or crystals is simply looking at a headband or tiara for evidence of any raised stones or setting prongs. You can lightly rub your hands over the surface of the headband or tiara to feel for raised areas that could signify that a stone is becoming loose.

Hope all of your princess dream would come true on your big day! Be a real princess with the gorgeous lace bridal gown from LunaDress.
