Why hide your carefully done-up tresses? Highlight your beautiful hair by wearing a headpiece that speaks for itself. Go all princess-y with a tiara, or get a blingy headband, or even a jewel-encrusted brooch for your hair. Go for classy pearls or glittery crystals. Or ditch bling for a headpiece made of fresh flowers. Wouldn’t you look like a Grecian beauty!
