How to secure a tiara that has rings to the head, is a question that we are frequently asked. Tiaras come in a few different forms and each has its own way of attaching to the head. Some tiaras have combs, some have rings, some come in a crown form and some as a frontal hair comb.

Here, we are going to show how a tiara with rings is most frequently held in the hair. It is important that the tiara is held securely and inconspicuous. We have seen and heard of other ways too, but these two are the most common. You can be creative and attach them your own way too. If you discover another efficient way, then please share it with us.

The 2 most common conventional ways are:

  • by using bobbie pins

Below are steps and illustrations showing application:

  1. Start by brushing your hair back and away from your face. You can use a brush or comb to smooth out any tangles or knots.
  2. Place the tiara on your head and adjust it so that it sits comfortably and is centered on your forehead.
  3. Follow the instructions in the image below to hold it in place.
