Met Ball 2011 – Vintage Jewellery as Hair Accessories

May 13, 2011 2 Comments

Last weeks Met Ball was a sea of fabulous gowns, stunning makeup and some gorgeous hairstyles. What caught my eye was the use of jewellery such as brooches as hair accessories. I ‘ve blogged about using brooches creatively before (see the post about vintage brooches here) but I thought I’d share some pics from the ball with you and some suggestions of how you could recreate the looks with some gorgeous vintage jewellery.

Kate Hudson wow’s with a brooch at the centre of her hairstyle.

If you fancy recreating any of these looks try these jewellery ideas from Bang On Vintage and Bang On Bridal.

1960’s Flower brooch at Bang On Vintage
Try attaching a brooch to your ponytail or bun. If you’re more brave try using a hair grip to pin at the the front just like Kate.

And for those who want to try some handcrafted Vintage glamour in their hair try one of Bang On Vintage’s Hair combs.
These combs are handmade using Vintage jewellery and are part of Bang On Vintage’s Bridal range but you dont have to be a bride to wear one of these.
Any of these combs would make a fabulous addition to any glamorous hair style.
