Feather Hair Pieces - Fun and Stylish Accessory

Feather hair pieces are a great hair accessory to wear when you want to add instant style and drama to your look.  A feather fascinator is a headpiece, worn in your hair, made from silk flowers, feathers, and other adornments.  Of course they look great paired with birdcage veils for that fresh yet vintage look. Feather hair pieces have grown very popular, because they are so stylish, comfortable, and fun to wear.

A "fascinator" is a funny word often used to describe a hair accessory with feathers.  It's possible you have not heard it called a "fascinator" because that is an older word to describe it. Here is some history about feather hair pieces from Wikipedia:

A fascinator is a headpiece, a style of millinery. The word originally referred to a fine, lacy head covering akin to a shawl made from wool or lace. The term had fallen almost into disuse by the 1970s.

In the early 21st century the term has made a comeback but the meaning has slightly changed and now is used to describe a delicate, slightly frivolous head decoration worn on the hair almost exclusively by women. Modern fascinators are commonly made with feathers, flowers and/or beads. They attach to the hair by a comb, headband or clip.

They are an adornment for formal attire and are an alternative to wearing a hat. They are particularly popular at premium horse racing events, such as the Grand National and the Melbourne Cup. They may also be worn at weddings by guests, and also as an alternative to a bridal veil. (Source: Wikipedia)

Of course everyone knows that hair accessories are a ton of fun to wear because they draw attention to your face.  As soon as you clip your hair clip into your hair, you will feel immediately transformed and feel totally confident and beautiful.  Add a touch of veiling, and voila--instant sophistication.
