Just what exactly IS a fascinator? Well, technically it's a headpiece, commonly made with feathers, sinamay, fabric, flowers, sequins, rhinestones or beads, that attaches to the hair with a clip, comb, headband or barrette. It can be worn as a kicky alternative to a hat. It's the easiest way we know to amp up the style of any outfit and express your personality! From a black tie event to the Kentucky Derby to a Gatsby garden party, fascinators are the perfect accessory. Fashionable and fun, they can be worn on the front, side or, to showcase an updo or chignon, the back of the head. We can custom-design one for you, too!
The Feathered Head
In ancient Greece, women wore flowers, vines and leaves woven into crown-like wreaths in their hair to celebrate special occasions. People felt a deep connection with nature, which was given importance in the religions of the day. As many flowers and plants had special meanings, Greek goddesses were identified by wearing specific kinds of flora. So even if you’re not celebrating the wild rites of Dionysus (the god of wine and merrymaking, of course) by wearing a wreath of grape leaves and ivy, vintage Chandra's wreath of white Lily of the Valleys will make your wedding day or garden party glorious. 8" diameter, 1.5" H.

The Feathered Head
The rooster is often portrayed as boisterously crowing at the break of dawn but that ain't nothin' compared to the cacophony of compliments you'll receive when you wear Chanticler! This easy-to-wear fascinator's look is singular, divine and changeable! Available in a variety of colors, this Chanticler features a lush coil of bright green hackle feathers with a scattering of iridescent black stripped coque (rooster) feathers dancing about. But the best thing is that she's built on a wire so can worn coiled or straight up, on the side of your head, wrapped around a pony tail or straight up in the air, Gatsby-style! And, because Chanticler has both a squeeze clip and pin hardware on back, she can be worn as a pin as well as a headpiece! Elegant, flexible and playful all at the same time, Chanticler will be your go-to fascinator! 5-6" around when coiled, 8" when straight up.
