Tips on Wearing Hair Jewellery

Hair jewelry is becoming increasingly popular among the rich and famous, and with good reason: topping off your hairstyle with gold or silver chains creates an elegant look with distinctly bohemian undertones (think sixties headbands, with added glam).

It's a tricky style to get just right, however, as too much sparkle will make you look gaudy and overdone. Read on for some handy tips on how to work the hair jewelry trend in high style.

The busier your outfit, the simpler your hair jewelry should be. Prints have been big news for a couple of seasons now, but when it comes to pairing them with hair jewelry, less is more! So if your top or dress features a busy print in many colors (like Georgia May Jagger's in the pic above), then a single chain is the way to go.

On the flip side, if your outfit is ultra-simple, monochromatic, or both, you can afford to be a little more outrageous with your hair jewelry.

Keep the sparkles on your outfit to a minimum. That's not to say that your clothes can't have any shine factor, but if your top is completely covered in sequins then it's best to give the sparkly head wear a miss.

Your hair jeweler should be the focal point of your outfit; give it too much competition and you'll end up looking like a Christmas tree (or worse, like you're desperate for attention!)

Save it for formal occasions. It doesn't have to be restricted to evening wear only, but hair jewelry really does work its magic at formal events (think weddings, proms and so on). No problems there: it looks smashing in Facebook photos, and will make you stand out from the rest of the flock.

Keep your hairstyle simple and relaxed. The good news: hair jewelry works on hair of any style and any length. The bad news: if you're perfectionist about your hair, then you'll need to get over that first!

Because of its bohemian roots, hair jewelry will always look better when paired with a bohemian hairstyle. Tousled, slightly messy up dos are the order of the day here (see Florence Welch, above) or long loose locks with a minimum of heat styling (like Nicole Richie's, below).
