The tiara is a very old female accessory that in some places is known by other names such as bow (arquinho) or headband. It can be structured (firm) or malleable, as in the case of headbands made of satin ribbon or other fabrics.
Usually the accessory is seen as a romantic, delicate and very feminine article, very connected to the woman’s first encounter with vanity, as many women end up knowing tiaras when they are still babies and use it until their adolescence at the latest.
However, this idea that tiaras are just for babies, girls and teenagers should be discarded. Today it is possible to find a multitude of models and colors that match any age and occasion. So, don’t be afraid to adopt this piece in your everyday looks.
How to include the tiara in the look
Read below some of the occasions when you can use the tiara and also check out some tips to make the right choice:
Everyday: To go to college, work, shopping, etc… choose a simple model, without many applications. In this way, it is easier to match the clothes you choose to go out. Narrow structured models are darlings of women. Opt for colors like brown, black and navy blue or with a gold or leopard print – it’s a charm.
Weddings, clubs and gala parties: For these events, care should be taken not to wear a tiara that resembles a bridal tiara. Tiaras and headbands with spikes and glitter or golden or silver leather are good options to use in more elaborate looks.
Bride: If you’re getting married, this is the opportunity to wear a nice hair accessory. It can be a princess-style tiara, an embroidered headband or a cap with applications.
Gym: In the gym, it is recommended to use a fabric headband and that it is very comfortable to not disturb during training. That way, you work out without having your hair falling on your face. It is an asset for those who have short bangs.
Babies: If you have a girl and she still doesn’t have enough hair to put on ornate barrettes, use baby headbands. They are comfortable, do not bother the child and make babies even cuter.
These are just a few suggestions, after all you can wear tiaras at any time and occasion you want. But it is worth remembering that it is important to choose a model that is firm on the head without squeezing you and hurting you. Get inspired by some models that can be found in virtual stores:
