Your Hair Style
The hair style that you are going to have when you wear the fascinator will determine the size of the fascinator that you should choose.
Basically, the smaller the volume of your hair is, the smaller the size of the fascinator.
If you consider wearing a very long hair, a large fascinator will fit. On the other hand, if you are wearing your hair in the pulling up style, a medium sized fascinator may be better. But if yours is a short haircut, I will prefer a smaller sized fascinator.
Fascinators are usually worn to one side – if you have a parting, then wear your fascinator there.
You don’t need to wear an enormous peacock feather to stand out. Instead, keep it simple but appealing.
If your hair or weave-on has a reddish tone, go for a fascinator with warm and dark earth toned color including brown, beige and dark green. But if it’s a dark coloured hair, I will prefer bright fascinator like a white, pink orange or blue.
Color of your dress
It is always the best idea to choose a fascinator whose color is the same as the color of the clothes that you are currently wearing. If the colors of these items match, it will give you a subtle and classy look. In addition, it will look like the fascinator you are wearing belongs to the set of the outfit as well.
Yes, you can match your fascinator color to your outfit, or choose one in different shades to pick out the varying tones of your dress.
Also if you are going to wear a multi colored cloth, then choose one color from these for your fascinator. Don’t go for another color that is different from these colors which are on your clothes. Too many colors will make it looks like you are trying too much and don’t really know how to corporate colors well.
Shape of your Face
While the color of the fascinator should complement the colors of your hair or your clothes, the shape of the fascinator should be the opposite of the shape of your face.
For instance, if you have a round face, a thin and tall fascinator will help to make your face look longer and balance out the disproportion of your face. On the other hand, if you have a long face, a disc shaped fascinator is your better option.
