A HISTORY OF THE HAIRBAND: THE HAIR ACCESSORY THAT GAVE MAISON VALÉRIE VALENTINE ITS REPUTATION
The hairband dates back to antiquity, when the Greeks and the Romans (both men and women) were the first to wear it. Hairbands, sometimes worn as tiaras, were initially made from woven fabric or cloth, and their main purpose was to keep the hair away from the face.
Over the centuries their function evolved, and they appeared in all classes of society. To ordinary people and manual workers, the hairband retained its primary functional role. But the young women from richer families started to reimagine its purpose, making this hair ornament an essential fashion accessory to show off their most beautiful hairstyles.
HAIRBANDS: YOUR GO-TO HAIR ACCESSORY
Maison Valérie Valentine sees the hairband as a true fashion accessory and deserving of attention. So, whether it is crown-shaped, adorned with flowers or simply made from the most beautiful leathers, each is crafted from materials of the highest quality.
Hairbands from our collections are designed to give your look and hair a unique flair, especially on important days like your wedding day. For that reason, we have wrapped their metallic base with precious fabric or leather. On their upper, they display fine materials such as silk satin, lambskin or suede goatskin, exotic skins like python or, despite it becoming a rarer trend, fur. Some of the hairbands from Valérie Valentine’s collections are also embellished with Swarovski® crystals.
Behind these pieces of art are our craftsmen and seamstresses, masters of their art, working by hand to the highest standards every day, in the heart of Paris. A craftsmanship that Maison Valérie Valentine passes on, as the years go by, to the young apprentices training with us.
