In life (bar an engagement party, wedding, or prom, ofc) there aren’t many occasions where we can wear a tiara and live out our princess dreams. But when these times do arise, we think you should be hair-ready… With this in mind, we’ve rounded up 8 fabulous hairstyles with a tiara that will be sure to turn heads and leave a (happily) ever-lasting impression on anyone you meet.
Just flick through our gorgeous gallery to see our pick of the best casual and formal looks from the runway, A-listers and red carpet appearances.
8 hairstyles with a tiara that are fit for a princess
1. Soft blowout
Styling her light golden brown hair in a soft and natural blowout, influencer and fashion designer Chiara Ferragni looks effortlessly put together for a party appearance.
While we’re huge fans of a blowout on its own, there’s no denying that her look goes from ordinary to extraordinary with the addition of a silver tiara.
Editor’s tip: Make your blowout last all day and night by sealing in your style with an ultrafine hairspray, like the VO5 Shine and Hold Hairspray.
With 24-hour humidity protection to help fight frizz and added shine booster, this neat spray also has a UV filter and will not only leave your tresses looking their best but smelling gorgeous, too.
2. Glossy strands
We’ve already seen the rise of wet-look hair on and off the catwalk but now it’s all about embracing glossy-looking tresses for the new year.
We suggest opting for a centre parting and misting your tresses with the TIGI Bed Head Headrush Shine Spray to give you gorgeously-shiny strands, before topping off the look with your pièce de résistance tiara.
3. Undone waves
When looking for hairstyles to wear with a tiara, you can’t go wrong with undone waves (after all, when is there not a time to wear undone waves?).
For effortless but picturesque waves, we recommend curling your hair backwards and allowing to cool. Then simply use your fingers to lightly brush through your hair to separate the waves and place your tiara of choice on your beautiful barnet!
4. Ethereal braids
If you would rather wear an updo hairstyle with a tiara, then we suggest turning to Zoey Deutch’s MET Gala look for inspiration. Romantically ethereal and stylish, Zoey added braids to her golden blonde hair before pinning everything into a low updo.
5. Curly ‘fros
Are you currently rocking a head full of curls? Then there’s no need to feel that FOMO, as you can totally wear a hairstyle with a tiara, too!
To make your look pop, leave your curls free and make the tiara work for you (not the other way around). We suggest letting your curls splay out from above and below the tiara for added drama and a dose of au naturel charm.
6. Braided bun
Never one to shy away from a head-turning ‘do, actress Kate Bosworth went for a sleek updo to show off her headwear. Smoothing back her ice-blonde tresses into a low braided bun meant Kate’s hair looked perfect from all angles.
7. Chic chignon
When it comes to hairstyles with a tiara, it’s time to take note from a professional – and by that, we mean a real-life Princess.
Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark, wore her medium chestnut brown hair in an elegant and chic chignon, proving that the classic hairstyle is still a favourite look thanks to its timeless appeal.
Editor’s tip: To keep a style like a chignon in place, we suggest using a medium to strong hold hairspray like the TONI&GUY Flawless Sleek Creation Hairspray.
Ideal for creating and finishing your look, we recommend sectioning the hair or lightly misting the product onto a hairbrush and working through each section for a sleek, defined look with medium hold.
8. Loose bun
Don’t let the red lips and huge tiara distract you from this fun and carefree hairstyle. Wearing her platinum blonde tresses in a simple low bun for a runway appearance, Pixie Lott finished off her hairstyle with a tiara and loose strands for a softer finish.
