Glam Up Your Prom Hairstyle with Jewels, Headbands and More

A wonderful trend for formal hairstyles, half-dos and updos is adding bling to your hair. In this gallery, I share some of my favorite headbands, hats, and jewels.

Headbands

You can go jeweled, feathered or ballerina.

Hats

Since the Duchess of Cambridge (aka Kate Middleton) married the Duke (that would be Prince William), hats have been very popular for formal occasions. My favorites are whimsical and classic ones from the 20s and 30s. You can find darling hats on Etsy.

Barrettes and Jewels

There are a million options for bejeweled barrettes. I personally love the antique look -- almost as if you took an old diamond brooch and made it into a barrette. I also love the look of silk barrettes. I have some examples in this gallery.
