Hints & Tips
You may be nervous about wearing a fascinator or tiara as you may think it will fall out at the worst possible time, but you would be wrong.
There are many simple tricks of the trade that can be utilised to ensure it stays where you want it and will ensure you look fabulous all day.
If you choose a comb all you need to remember is:
• Back comb the area where you intend to place your fascinator. This provides a thicker and stronger area on which the comb can grip.
• Push the comb slightly in the opposite direction before you slide it 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 comb, avoiding the actual fascinator, liberally with hairspray, this will ensure that the comb and the hairs stick together and will prevent it from slipping.
• And lastly if you're still worried, try strategically placing a few curbi-grips in the area also, just for extra security.
What If I choose a headband.
If you select a fascinator mounted on a head band you really do not have any cause for concern. The 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.
