The individually hand-moulded flowers are made from a variety of different coloured and textured acrylics. Flowers have wood, gemstone and glass bead centres, are assembled on beaded wires and fixed into a FSC-approved wooden band. The front and back of the band is made with 100% recycled acrylic, made in-house from our offcuts.
Metal hair combs are fixed under the wooden band which is lined with a soft wool felt for added comfort. Double-sided velvet ribbons from each side are intended to tie underneath the hair and give the wearer an extra way to secure on the head - these can easily be taken off if preferred.
Dimensions: Approx: 16cm x 25cm.
Weight: Approx. 142g. Lightweight for all day/night wear.
COMBS & RIBBON COLOUR
As standard, we use silver-tone combs which are more aesthetically pleasing when the headpiece isn't being worn! On request, you can choose matt black combs which are better for hiding in darker coloured hair.
We advise choosing a ribbon colour that matches the headpiece or blends well with your hair colour.
As standard we make the headpiece in a Medium size. This should fit most head sizes and shapes as it is possible to gently bend the combs to fit.
We can also make the headpiece in a Small and Large on request.
If you choose the "Not Sure" option, we will email you with a printable template to try the different sizes at home. Please note, we cannot proceed with your order until we know which size you require.
The headpiece is secured in your hair by large adjustable combs around the wooden band.
1. Gently bend the combs to make the band fit smaller or larger.
2. Place the headpiece towards the front of your head and push back so the combs sweep tightly into your hair. Arrange your hair around the band and combs as desired.
3. The ribbons should be tied under the back of your head, but can also be removed easily if you would rather wear without.
4. We recommend sliding some hair pins/clips over the combs or ribbon to secure it even further.
Follow these steps and you'll be able to comfortably dance around all night!
Unfortunately, this headpiece may not be compatible with very short/very thin hair, or for those who have braids. We are looking into the possibility of offering an alternative band style - please email us if this is something that would be of interest to you.
