Definition of Fascinator

Definition: Fascinator

Chances are, you've seen people wearing fascinators. These hair accessories, usually clips or pins with feathers, flowers, or lace, are everywhere these days, gracing the heads of celebrities, brides, and girls who love a little vintage flair on Saturday nights. Although they're cool and trendy now, they've actually been around since at least the 18th century, when large feathered and beaded hair accessories were the height of fashion. Funnily enough, a "fascinator" initially meant a lacy, fancy head covering for ladies to wear with their evening clothes. However, the meaning has evolved over the centuries to encompass the fun, flirty confections we wear in our hair now, like this 2adorn Brown Feather Fascinator ($59).
