Caring For Your Fascinator or Hat
Thursday, 18 June 2015 | prettycool
Fascinator and hat season is upon us, with Ladies Day at Ascot in full flow today and the wedding season peaking.
If you have bought a fascinator or hat this year and have had it a while before the occasion it might just need a little lift. If it is made with sinamay which is the straw mesh type material this is easily moulded back into shape by applying a little steam and the sinamay can then be manipulated or straightened if you should wish to.
Like many people you may being wearing a fascinator or hat from a previous occasion and the above would also apply to this. Some of the feathers may be looking a little drab, if so and if there are plenty on there why not just snip them off at the base, you would never notice and you could even reinvent it by buying some odd feathers and adding another colour to coordinate with a different outfit. A classic Hat or fascinator will never go out of fashion so why not make use of it.
We still have plenty of fascinators and hats for sale at Pretty Cool and as always can give advice on styles via email firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone 01438 545 181.
Whatever occasion you're attending, we all hope you have an amazing day and would love to have some photographs of our stunning customers to add to our Facebook page.

Once thought to be a thing of the past, ornate head wear for ladies is turning many heads these days. In 2011, the Duchess of Cambridge revealed a stunning red headpiece when she arrived in Canada. Her fascinator was perfect for the Canada Day Celebrations as it contained a beautiful red maple leaf.
At the recent royal wedding, fascinators were very popular. In fact, many guests showed up with them and perhaps the most talked about was the headpiece worn by Princess Beatrice. This highly unusual hat was in the shape of a pretzel and received worldwide recognition. Eventually, it sold at an online auction for over £81,000.
We Love Fascinators

Now, that word fascinators should send Philip Treacy into a bull like rage at a Spanish bull fight. In last months Grazia magazine it was published that 'Philip Treacy declares fascinators are over: They are no more than headbands with a feather stuck on!'.
The really strange thing is, he's said the same words and declarations so many times. In May 2012 Grazia Daily published an article saying 'Philip Treacy on shopping with Sarah Burton, hating Fascinators, and his JFK grudge'. Watching the Royal Ascot coverage is another real joke, with snobbish remarks from male so-called fashion experts commenting on how hats are more stylish when most of the ones they show are in fact a large fascinator or headpiece, because they don't like the term 'Fascinator'. The so-called fashion experts also love to feature the same designer styles, costing many hundreds of pounds and really can't grasp that the vast majority of ladies visiting Ascot are very normal, middle income, and want to look fab on a realistic budget.
Why can't these designers realise that We Love Fascinators? They feel comfortable and can be easily removed or changed without your hair being left flat on your head. We know this is true, as year on year we at Pretty Cool sell more fascinators every year in the £20 - £30 bracket, and guess what - every year they get bolder and more vivid in colour, proving ladies really want to make a statement and look fantastic at the races, or a wedding, or any other excuse to look and feel great!
