Hints and Tips
Our useful hints and tips for wearing fascinators!
Band versus Comb - which to go for?
Most of our fascinators can come with either a comb or a band. Many people comment to us that combs will not stay in their hair. In most cases, our method of securing the comb with grips will ensure your fascinator stays put!
Find the best position for your fascinator hat and back comb your hair. Use hairspray and position the hairgrips as indicated. Place the comb of the fascinator behind the grips to secure your hat.
Alternatively, our bands are comfortable fine metal bands which are easily hidden by most peoples hairstyle.
For some designs, we also add an elastic band for added security. Your choice! Simply state your preference when placing your order.
Left or right hand Side?
We have photographed all of our fascinators on the right hand side but customers have the option to choose whether to wear them on the right or the left hand side when placing their order and we will make their fascinator accordingly.
From our Blog
We work with many materials when making our hats but the base material of most styles is sinamay. This is a natural product made of woven straw. It is a difficult medium to work with as it needs to be folded, moulded and in some cases stiffened into shape. It can vary considerably in its texture and pliability. However, once mastered enables a milliner to create wonderful shapes, flowers and knots.
Our sinamay designs are available in 64 colours and our felt styles can be made in over 20 colours. Contact us to let us know which colours you would like and we will send out FREE swatches of material for colour matching against your outfit. We aim to send out all colour samples within 48 hours.
