As winter begins to fade and the first glimpses of springtime sun reveal themselves, celebrate with your accessories. Swarovski crystals look particularly glimmery in the sunshine, so springtime is a great opportunity to bedazzle your hair.
Chaton and self-adhesive bandings can be easily applied to a plain hairband or headband for effortless glamour. These bandings come in various colours, like rose gold for example, a perfect complement to the new season. Choose how many rows of crystals you want to fit your hairband, and simply position in place and press firmly. The tiny crystals will reflect the light as you walk, adding a subtle sparkle to your look.
In lieu of chaton or self-adhesive banding, check out our Swarovski Crystal Mesh. These loose integrated crystals make for more of a statement look. Their flexible metal mesh casing comes in brushed silver, brushed gold, or stainless steel to complement the Swarovski crystal inside. An iridescent green will shimmer and shine in the outdoor light, and Indian pink brings a bold pop of colour to any darker or muted outfit you’re wearing. Apply using either hotfix application, or hand sew, depending on your hairband material. We recommend hotfix applications for porous materials that will take with the hot glue.
For a more subtle look, add some loose Swarovski crystals to your bobby pins and slides. It is best to use non hotfix crystals on slippery materials like hair clips or pins, so check out our Swarovski Flatback mixes for a variety of sizes and shapes to adorn your hair pieces with. Our Rainbow Mix is a collection of many different colours to complement the season. Take some of the smaller sized crystals - SS5 to SS9 - and apply along the length of your bobby pin. For a hair comb or clip with a thicker edge, go for some bigger crystals in different shapes, like with our Forest Mix. An easy, fun, and really simple way to add some colour and sparkle to your accessories.
If you like to get creative with your style, create your own headband! Take a thick piece of ribbon or material, tie in a bow at the back of your head, and snip away the excess. Then, add some loose Swarovski crystals in whatever design you want. Use a Shapes Mix of our non hotfix Swarovski crystals to tessellate a design on your fabric. Alternatively, take a look at our Crystal Rocks & Medley collection, where you can add a ready made shape or design. These fine rocks are packed together in shapes like hearts, crowns, lightning bolts, and peace signs, and can be applied via the hotfix method or self-adhesively. Add a peace sign in Crystal AB to your ribbon headband for ‘60s cool!
