Do you have a little girl who has the honor of being a flower girl at a wedding? If this is a case it means that she might have to wear a tiara. There might be other reasons why she might need to wear a tiara as well. For instance, many children that model in beauty pageants need to wear not one but several tiaras.
Believe it or not, they make tiaras for children as young as one year old. However a tiara that is made out of crystals, pearls or jewels can actually hurt a baby's head. For the most part a tiara goes best on the head of a kid that has a lush full head of hair and on kids that can wear their hair stacked up on top of their head in a bun style. Without this in place the child's tiara can fall off his or her head.
You do not need to go to a specialty store to buy a tiara for a child. Many bridal and tiara specialty places sell them for children. Furthermore most tiaras can be adjusted to fit any head-size including a child's. Usually all it takes is bringing your kid to the tiara store so she can try one on to see if it fits. If you are ordering it online measure your child's head to make sure that it is not going to be so big that it falls off of her skull.
Tiaras for little flower girls can be the sweetest little pieces of hair jewelry you have ever seen in your life. Many have a heart shape design in the center that fans out on the sides and are constructed of pearls and rhinestones. Usually a much larger diamond or pearl dangles in the center of the tiara.
You can get tall pointed styles that look like crowns or you can get flatter shapes that are more like headbands and a bit gentler on the head. You can also get them with centers that are in the shape of monograms or the first letter of your child's name in the center. Common tiaras that are replicated are the Princess Grace, Shirley Temple, America Pageant, Princess Diaries, Audrey Hepburn, Princess Kate and Princess Diana.
One fun thing to do is throw a tiara party for all of the princesses in your neighborhood. There is nothing that little princesses love more than wearing their delightful crowns.
