Crystal Accessories - Crystal Hair Accessories

           
 

Crystal accessories generally tend to follow the design trends from the major seasonal catwalks with celebrity hairstyle trends thrown into the mix.  Award shows like the Oscars, Emmys and Golden Globes, and Grammys also play a significant part in dictating the latest crystal and diamond hair accessory trends. 

The simple act of wearing a gorgeous crystal hair accessory can start a major accessory trend that trickles down to the season's prom and weddings. Thanks to Nicole Kidman and Charlize Theron at the recent Golden Globe Awards and Beyonce at the Grammy awards, crystal hair accessories are more popular than ever for completing the perfect prom or wedding ensemble.  

Like the importance of selecting the perfect shoes and purse to match your gorgeous gown, it is important to select the best hair accessories that compliment your total look.



     
           
 

Featuring Silver Rhinestone Headband

     
           
 

I Hollywood celebrites like Natalie Portman have been seen wearing crystal headbands to events such as the Oscars. For the Academy Awards, Best Supporting Actress nominee Natalie Portman (for Closer) commands the red carpet in her signature look, a shimmering Art Deco-style Lanvin gown topped off with a sparkling headband.

Headbands encrusted with crystals and gems have an additional advantage. These headbands can be used as functional tools to hold tresses in place or as pure decoration. Headbands work well for all hair types, but be sure to keep them about 1 1/2 inches back from the forehead so that some hair shows in front of it.

     
           
 

Jeweled crystal combs also made a huge splash at the Golden Globes.  Charlize Theron (shown to the side) had her fashionably curly hair held in a sensual style behind one ear with a crystal encrusted comb. Not only was Charlize's hairstyle a perfect match for her gown and other accessories but the jeweled comb was a spectacular accent piece.   It was simple but elegant adding a gorgeous finish to a sensual style.

Hair combs have been a popular hair accessory since caveman days when pieces of animal teeth were used to fashion a primative comblike object to hold hair out of the face.  Since those humble beginnings, hair combs have transformed through many styles, materials and colors.  Hair combs can be used as functional hair accessories to hold hair neatly in place, to anchor chignons, twists or buns or to help control unruly tresses.  Combs can also be used purely as accent pieces. Besides Charlize, other celebrities were spotted at the Golden Globes with an assortment of combs.  

     
           
 

When Jessica Simpson married Nick Lachey in the Fall of 2002 she wore her hair in a soft pulled back style that was accented with rare antique brooches that had been converted into jeweled barrettes worth many hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Barrettes, like hairpins, can be used as a functional hair tool to hold back a sweep of bangs or a few strands of hair at the back of the crown.  Barrettes can also be purely decorative adding instant glamour and glitz to a simple but elegant style like Jessica's bridal style crafted especially for her by celebrity stylist Ken Paves.

Barrettes comes in a range of sizes from very small to very large.  Select a barrette to match your other jewelry accessories.

     
           
  Jennifer Lopez brought back the simple but elegant hairpin with a vengeance.  Jennifer Lopez Wore Vera Wang's off-the-shoulder ruffled lace dress, a one-of-a-kind from the designers' spring collection. Her hair was swept up with encrusted with Austrian crystals hair pins, and crowned with a long veil, worn off the face.

Hairpins are perfect for securing big bangs to one side or to adding a well planned sparkle to a messy twist or updo.  Longer hairpins can be used as a faux headband. Crystal encrusted hairpins are one of the most flexible of hair accessories.  

Not only can they do double duty as a functional hair tool but they can add a simple but elegant shimmer to any length or style of hair.  Even better, they are very easy to use, unlike some other types of accessories that may require practice to utilize properly.
