A brimless, round hat often adorned with a coloured net veil (birdcage). Small, simple & elegant they are attached with a hairband or clip. Invented in the 1930's & favoured by famous faces throughout the decades they are a popular choice today.
These fascinators consist of strips of sinamay looped together resulting in simple or bold creations. They can be attached using hairbands, combs or clips & vary in size & height. These fascinators are favoured at a variety of functions.
Simple & understated, these subtle fascinators can be a feathered, flowered or jewelled clip or comb. Classic fascinators are worn to luncheons & dinner functions & by wedding guests & are also popular with formal / prom goers.
Usually called hatinators they are worn tilted to one side & attached with a hairband or clip. These headpieces vary in adornment & size from subtly simple to flamboyantly fabulous. They are popular with wedding guests & race attendees.

Hatpins were originally designed to be used in pairs to fasten a women's hat to her hair. But in the hands of a damsel in distress, a hatpin may have been the deadliest fashion accessory in history. ... The hatpin as a hidden device was so effective for self-defence that manuals were published on proper usage.
