Elizabethan Hair Adornments and Modern Adornments

The Elizabethan monarchy and upper-class were well known for their flamboyant hairstyles, full of body, texture and decorations. This is because many of them would often use adornments to style their hair, often used as a status symbol. The different types of adornments ranged from pearls, ribbons, hats, bonnets, crowns and jewels. It was a time in which wealth and affluence were often shown off to others through a person’s appearance. 

In modern fashion, hair adornments are used regularly, they can be used to complete a look, as an accessory or simply to add an extra feature to the style.  

From the modern hair adornments I love the glamour it adds to the hairstyles, it makes them all the more beautiful and adds an extra touch to the look as a whole. I feel like the use of adornments in hair will never go out of style and will continue to develop further in the future. The trends in adornments haven’t changed too drastically from the Elizabethan period and now, many people still use jewels, pearls and hats to adorn their hair. Fashion accessories like this have been used for hundreds of years and will continue to do so in the future.
