Bringing yet another alt beauty trend back to the red carpet, our latest lady crush Paris Jackson just made crystal crowns officially a thing. Yup, you heard correctly. Swapping the age old flower crown (which by now is surely too basic for almost everyone?), Jackson channeled her signature spiritual vibes with a seriously pretty custom crystal hairband by milliner Ann Shoebridge.
And we're feeling it. Here's five reasons why you need to get your hands on a crystal crown asap (and leave the flowers firmly at home)...
1. Update Your Flower Crown
Yes, we know we keep hating on the trad festival flower crown but fear not, for the crystal crown is here to fill the hippy chic hole in your summer wardrobe. Think less gaudy silk flowers with fake plastic dew drops, more seriously pretty gold wire and raw quartz crystals. It's almost too Pinterest-worthy.
2. OTT Hair Accessories Are In
If you're worried about a full on crown feeling a little too 'look at me' for your Friday night out-out then just turn to AW17's obsession with more-is-more hair accessories and ostentatious, 80s glitz and glamour - it'll make your crystal crown seem positively understated.
3. The Office Christmas Party Is Imminent
As much as we dread to say it, the annual office Christmas 'do is nigh, which means finding a way to stand out in a sea of scratchy sequin dresses and more bodycon than you can shake a stick at. Enter the crystal crown. Off beat but still super beautiful, your bejewelled headband is a guaranteed compliment recruiter - the IT department will be entirely decked out in them at next year's bash, trust.
4. Your Wedding Tiara Just Got Cool
Wedding tiara's might have fallen out of favour with brides in recent years but we're sensing a spiritual reawakening in the form of the crystal crown. More affordable than diamonds, more modern than a veil and more subtle than flowers (yes, we're talking about flower crowns again), clear quartz is the new wedding hair trend du jour.
5. One For The White Witches
Anyone who's into crystal healing will know that keeping certain stones in your pocket (or your bra) can help balance and boost your mood. So what better way to give negative energy the old heave ho than wearing crystals on your head? A clear quartz crown can help improve your balance, focus, positivity and clarity and it looks totally Insta-worthy. Win, win.
