The Cherry on Top

Gone are the days of the traditional Lolita headdress! It's really not so common and is no longer a staple of Lolita wardrobes as it once was.
It's not completely dead, of course, but there are so many other things to put on your head that compliment a far greater variety of face shapes (who else got the double chin from the tied ribbons?)

Lolita Headwear

Huge variety!

My personal favorite type of headwear is probably anything mounted on a headband!
Headband Headwear

It's easy to put on and adjust throughout the day, and stays on my head better than combs and mini hats do. If the Alice bow is really large and hard to keep on, you can sew a small comb on the underside so the comb and headband combined keep it on much better! There are so many types of decorated headbands like the Alice bow, side bows, ruffled headband, floral corsage, fabric corsage, veil, etc.

I personally am not a fan of the plastic decorated headbands, but I know they were popular for a while, too.

For more casual days I like hair bands like these:

Pigtails and Hair Bands

I actually like the plastic decoration on hair bands because they stand up better. I like to wear my hair in pigtails high/low/braided/half-up. Pigtails are very versatile and easy to style! They're nice for days when you don't want a large accessory on your head.

The hair band made with an applique seems like it'd be a fun and easy DIY project to do! The next time you find a cute applique, maybe you can give it a try!

What is your favorite head wear for events or casual days?
