With what hairstyle to grant it?
- On a loose hair
Whether you have long hair or short, it will necessarily make your happiness! If you have straight hair, opt for a bibi of character, large or flashy! Smooth your hair perfectly by blowing or using a straightener and make a line on the side or the center depending on your hair implantation. Then, all you have to do is attach the decoration in your mane, securing the whole thing with several transparent hooks. Arrange it slightly to the side of the head for a retro look.
The bibi is also suitable for fuzzy hair, curls crinkled in the spirit “wavy” of the moment. To do this, simply work your lengths with a curling iron using a large diameter tip, not to mention spray a pschitt fixer spray for a long lasting. Then put your little bibi hat in the same way as before. You are ready for an unforgettable evening!
- On an attached hair
To properly highlight your accessory, you can also attach your hair, mat, ponytail, semi-tail or bun. The mini-hat will be in this case the main element of your hairstyle. You can afford eccentricities, both in form and color. And you can fix it on the top of the head slightly to the side or above a bun.
For a retro-chic spirit, choose black veil or flashy version for a color block look. Only advice: make the make-up easier. Your bibi is enough to put you in the light. If you want something more discreet, there is the bar-mounted bibi in a more compact format but just as sophisticated. Do not forget that he is always leaning on the side of the head, it’s a matter of style!

Thanks to the wide variety of models that exist, you are spoiled for choice to match it with your little party dress. Several types of frames exist: on headband, with elastic, on a comb or on a crocodile clip. You will choose it according to your tailor: if your dress is quite simple you can wear a colorful or imposing model, while if your outfit is rather sophisticated, bet on a more simplistic ornament.
