A fascinator or tiara is a headpiece worn on the hair and worn almost exclusively by women. Fascinators are commonly made with feathers, flowers, beads and/or crystals. Fascinators and tiaras attach to the hair by a comb, headband or clip. They are an adornment for formal attire and fascinators and tiaras are an alternative to wearing a hat. Fascinators are particularly popular at premium horse racing events, such as the Grand National and the Melbourne Cup. They are also be worn at weddings by guests, and also by the bride as a bridal fascinator rather than a tiara, as well as at christenings, parties and proms.

• Back comb the area where you intend to place your fascinator or tiara. This provides a thicker and stronger area on which the fascinator or tiara comb can grip.
• Push the comb slightly in the opposite direction before you slide the fascinator or tiara into place, this will ensure that more hairs are woven between the teeth of the comb, again ensuring a firmer grip.
• Spray the area around the fascinator or tiara comb, avoiding the actual fascinator or tiara, liberally with hairspray. This will ensure that the fascinator or tiara comb and the hairs stick together and will prevent it from slipping. • And lastly if you're still worried about wearing your fascinator or tiara, try strategically placing a few curbi-grips in the area also, just for extra security.
What If I choose a fascinator or tiara on a headband
If you select a fascinator or tiara mounted on a head band you really do not have any cause for concern. The fascinator and tiara bands are all strong yet discreet and will stay in place without help. So unless, after the Champagne starts flowing, you feel the urge to perform cartwheels, (and then I'm afraid gravity will probably take hold) you'll be absolutely fine and your fascinator or tiara wont move.
A fascinator is a head piece that differs from a hat, as it is mounted on base, usually a head band or comb.
How is a fascinator worn?
A fascinator can be worn in many different ways, & depending on its style, can be worn to the front or the side of the head. A fascinator can also be worn as you would a tiara or towards the back of the head if your hair is to be dressed up in a chignon or curls.
