When it comes to quinceanera tiaras, do you like them big or small? There are also real gold tiaras, yes real gold. Some are so big that when you’re dancing your walz the chambelan snaps it off.
Learn about the history of tiaras :
TIARAS are also known as diadems. The wearing of a diadem as a mark of nobility or royalty is an extremely ancient custom, and the forms which diadems have assumed are so diverse that it is very difficult to generalize about them or to trace a continuous line of development. The diadems of some of the Eastern Kings in ancient times were extremely ornate and heavy, while in classical times supreme power was often denoted in the simplest way – by a band of cloth worn round the head and tied in a knot behind. When Gibbon says of Diocletian that he “ventured to assume the diadem”, the diadem in question was only a fillet of white cloth set with pearls. Yet much richer head-dresses had been worn at an earlier date, notably by the Egyptians. Some of the diadems of the Egyptian princesses are amazingly delicate. One which belonged to the Princess Khnemt is made of delicate flowers in gold wire, inlaid with stones, and has all the fragility of a wreath made of real wild flowers.
The earliest diadems found in the Greek world are made of gold or silver sheet decorated with simple patterns of dots embossed from the back. In classical times the diadem of sheet gold decorated with embossed patterns was joined by the wreath. Extremely naturalistic imitations of wreaths of real leaves were made in gold, silver, and materials plated with gold, and were worn on ceremonial occasions.

Quinceanera Updo Hairstyle Steps:
1. Start with dry hair that has been prepped with a firm hold styling gel. (Gel applied when hair was damp.)
2. Back comb at the crown to add height to style.
3. Separate the hair at the sides leaving out the hair from the top of the ear forward. Clip out of the way.
4. Smooth the rest of the hair at the back and create a ponytail in the upper middle of the head.
5. Use a covered ponytail band to make the ponytail.
6. Use the tail of a rat tail comb slide into the slicked hair to pull up on the crown a bit to ensure that there is a bit of height at the crown with the hair that is in the ponytail.
7. Use a small centimeter size section of hair at the bottom of the ponytail to wrap the hair around the ponytail holder. Don’t wrap using all the hair. Leave out a tail that is a couple inches long. Pin into the base of the ponytail to hold.
8. Take hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the base of the ponytail, leaving out tails of hair and pin into the base of the pony tail. Let the tails make a pleasing arrangement in the back of the head.
9. Take a side section of hair and smooth it back towards the ponytail. Wrap the hair around the ponytail just once and use a bobby pin to secure the hair. Let the ends fall from the top of the ponytail spilling over onto the side back of the head.
10. Repeat on the other side. When wrapping the sides, try to go underneath the tails that have already been done in the back of the hair.
11. Finish with a finishing hairspray to help hold everything in place.

Check out this hairstyles good for dama or quinceanera. A stellar hairstyle is sure to draw eyes and attention toward you. The key to a standout hairstyle is to choose something different than your everyday hair. If you usually wear your hair up in a messy bun or ponytail, try wearing it down in a sleek, straight style or with curly waves. If you normally wear your hair down, now is your chance to try a fabulous up-do that will leave everyone staring at your beautiful neck and collarbone. You can find detailed instructions below for four glamorous styles para ese dia de quince.
This easy, glamorous style can have you ready and out the door in less than 30 minutes. First, pull your hair up into a high ponytail. If you have curly or wavy hair, straighten it with a flat iron first. Tame any stray hairs or frizz by spraying the top of your hair with a spray gel and gently combing it down flat. Once your hair is sleek and smooth, divide the ponytail into three sections. Roll each section under and pin each with a couple of bobby pins or hair clips in a different direction. Be creative with the directions; there are no rules on how this style should look. To finish your look, add a flower, decorative hair clip, or tiara.
The French twist is a classic, easy style with fabulous flare. For a quick style, you can make the twist sleek and simple. To add uniqueness to the twist, you can finish the ends with loose curls. To form a twist, first flatten your hair with gel for a sleek look. You can part your hair on one side (great for masking a prominent widow’s peak) or comb it all back. Take your hair at the nape of your neck and begin twisting. Once it is completely twisted, pull the twist up and attach it with clips. Spritz the entire twist with hair spray to keep it in place and tame any stray hairs. Finish the style by tucking the ends of the twist under or curling them with a small curling iron. For extra style, try tying a ribbon the same color as your dress around your head in front of the twist.
Soft Curls (For Short Hair)
A soft, curly style is a great way to wear your hair down if you have naturally straight tresses. First, set your hair in hot rollers to form the curls. While you’re waiting for the rollers to heat, do your make-up to maximize your getting-ready time. Once the rollers have cooled, unroll your hair and brush it out. Flatten the front and hold it in place with some long bobby pins or hairclips. Tease the ends and the back up with a teasing comb and some hairspray. Don’t worry about every strand of hair being perfect; the slightly disheveled look is sexy and stylish. Once you’ve finished teasing the ends, remove the clips at the front and finish the style with a flower or some rhinestone clips placed randomly throughout your hair.
Tousled Curls (For Long Hair)
If you have naturally curly hair, now is the time to take full advantage of it. A long, curly style is perfect for prom-night royalty and guaranteed to please you and your date. First, shampoo your hair and add a curl-enhancing conditioner or cream. While your hair is air drying, scrunch it a little to encourage curls. If you don’t have the time to let your hair dry naturally, use a blow dryer with a diffuser. Once your hair is dry, take small strands and curl them with a curling iron to control your curls and give them a styled look. Tousle the ringlets a little with your finger to break them into loose curls. Then, pull your hair back with a ribbon to match your dress and leave a few strands loose in the back. If you’d like a fuller look, cheat a little by adding a curly hairpiece underneath the gathered curls. A flower or rhinestone-studded clip is a great finishing touch to this style.
Here are some tips for quinceanera hairstyles, every sweet 15 is an excuse to really go to town, and the more glam and glitz, the better! You ve got the dress, the shoes, the makeup, the new jewelry… you ve booked the limo, and that bubble of excitement is already starting to rise up inside your stomach… Now all you have to do is work out how to fix your hair! And a beautiful quinceanera hairstyle is crucial for your overall appearance.
60 s influenced styles are back in fashion, but there are many other ways to make your quinceanera hairstyle one to remember. Here s the long and short of it!
Chics with short hair are lucky because their quinceanera hairstyle will take half the time to do! Short hair is the best type if you want to have a really out of this world flicks at the nape of your neck – think funky pixie! All you need is some hair wax – apply a little and tease out the ends of your hair so that the style frames your face. Alternatively, short haired girlies can sweep their bangs to the side, and pin it with a pretty hair clip. This sophisticated look will work even better if you pick delicate hair accessories that coordinate with your dress and corsage.
Those of you with medium length hair may think that there s nothing interesting they can do with their hair. But stop and think; you re actually the ideal length because you can make your hair look longer, or shorter, fairly easily. To make your hair look shorter, take small sections, and carefully twist them towards the back of your head. Pin the ends where you would normally have a ponytail, and tease the ends of the twists out away from your head to create cute flicks. To make you hair look longer, attach a quality fake ponytail, and fix your hair like the long haired girls…
You girls with long hair can chose from several quinceanera hair styles. You could leave it down (flowing locks are always great). But if you want to pin it back, remember that it doesn t just have to be a ponytail. Put your hair into a ponytail first of all – (your hair will be too heavy without that extra support, and the style is most likely to slip). Then take the ends of your hair and twist it or curl it, and pin it to the back of your head. You could even have lots of tiny plaits, intertwine them, and then pin them into a beautiful bun shape to form a kind of crown. Sensational!
Delicately curled tendrils work especially well if you have an off the shoulder dress. If your hair isn t naturally curly, you can cheat! Use a heat protective spray, and carefully curl the ends of the hair into traditional ringlets. Not only will this new style frame your face but it will create quite an impact.. curly girlies always look romantic!
Whatever you do, remember the golden rules. No matter which style you choose, make sure that your hair is shiny, bouncy, and healthy looking. Avoid the temptation of fixing your hair with half a bottle of hairspray. Hair which is weighed down with too much product always looks crusty and dull. Remember, sophistication and coordination is the key.
Any hairstyle for a Quinceanera girl should be stunning and secure. It needs to capture the maturity of the new young lady while standing up to a night of celebrating and dancing. It also never hurts to choose a Quinceanera hairstyle that makes you look fantastic.
You need to decide what hair accessories you want to wear before deciding on your exact hairstyle. If you’re going to wear a tiara or crown, your hair will need a flat area for the adornment to sit. If you plan on wearing just pretty gems scattered in your hair, you can use almost any upswept style.
This upswept and twisted hair style is perfect for any Quinceanera party. Pull your hair into a low ponytail with your hands. Twist the ponytail tightly upwards towards the crown on your head. Pin the twisted hair in place and leave the ends loose on top of the head. Take the loose ends and create tons of tiny spiral curls. Use some hairspray to keep everything in place. Slip your crown or tiara on in front of the curls and secure with pins.
There are a few Quinceanera hairstyles you can create with variations on the basic ponytail tiara twist hairstyle. Separate your hair into two sections and twist each one up the side of your head. Bring them together at the top of your head, curls the ends, and secure with pins and hairspray. Or you can go with four sections, two in back and two in front. Twist up to the top of your head, gather the hair together, curl the ends and secure.
If you don’t plan on wearing a crown or tiara, think about making your own crown with a fancy braid. Pull you hair up into a high ponytail. Use ribbons that match your dress and braid your hair with them. Take the long, fancy braid and wrap it in a circle around your head. Secure in place with plenty of bobby pins and hairspray. Pull a few loose tendrils out around your face to soften the look.
You can use ribbon, flowers or even tiny barrettes to help dress up a braided crown hairstyle. Find tiny, gem barrettes to scatter in the braid itself. Find some fresh, small flowers and stick the stems into the braid. You can even use the ribbon to create pretty hanging strands down the back of your head and neck
But I m sure, whatever you decide to do, you ll all look like the quinceanera queen! Soon i’m posting a ton of hairstyles for quinceaneras, keep coming back..
The Quinceañera or Quince años (turning fifteen years old) is, for Hispanics, a girl’s celebration of her fifteenth birthday, which is commemorated in a different way from her other birthdays. Technically a “Quinceaños” is the birthday and the term “Quinceañera” refers to the female celebrant, but in practice it has become synonymous with the celebration as well. The celebration highlights God, family, friends, music, food, and dance. The celebration traditionally begins with a religious ceremony. A reception is held in the celebrant’s home or a banquet hall. The festivities include food and music, and in most, a choreographed waltz (Vals) or another dance performed by the Quinceañera and her court. The quinceanera, the young woman, usually wears a pink or white dress at the festival.
It is customary for the Quinceañera to receive some or all of the following items for her ceremony: a tiara, other jewelry (such as bracelets or rings), a cross or medal, a Bible, prayer book, rosary, or scepter.
In some ceremonies, the girl will be wearing flats and will change into heels during the party to symbolize her coming-of-age.
Besides referring to the festivities, the word “Quinceañera” is also used to refer to the young woman whose 15th birthday is being celebrated (analogous to the word cumpleañera for “birthday girl”). Other cultural equivalents to the quinceañera in the United States are the Bar or Bat Mitzvah celebrations for Jewish boys and girls turning 13, the debutante ball, the cotillion and the sweet sixteen birthday parties.
In the Hispanic tradition, the celebration is a festive gathering with relatives and friends, often preceded by a church mass celebrated in honor of the birthday girl. For most Hispanics, the “Quinceaños” celebration marks the transition from girlhood to young womanhood, and is the time when a “niña” (girl) is to begin being referred to as a “señorita” (Miss). However, in the social Hispanic tradition, girls become officially recognized as a “señorita” when they are 21, at which time they may be referred to as “mujeres” (women). As in most Latino cultures, Mexican families proudly celebrate the fifteen birthday for girls as an entry in to young womanhood.
Typically the celebrant’s court is comprised of Godparents and a young gentleman known as the “Chambelan,” the Quinceañera’s companion and date for the evening. The Chambelan’s sole purpose is to have the first dance with the Quinceañera, a traditional ballroom waltz called a “Vals”. This dance tradition is based on a mixture of Mexican, French, Spanish and English ballroom dances, and is imbued with the symbolism of the Roman Catholic church. It is uncommon not to have the blessings of a church or priest who offers mass before the Vals Celebration.
The Chambelan initiates the Vals by requesting a dance with the Quinceañera to a classical song, followed by dances requested with her by her father or another close male relative such as an uncle or older brother, and then her Godfather. Following these initial presentation dances, the guests join the dance floor as well. Some Latino cultures have the girl’s first dance begin with her father as her partner, and then he is cut in on by her escort.
Godparents play a significant role in the preparations for the Quinceaños, often handling arrangements for the party, church and celebration. The event is the culmination of their responsibilities to the church to oversee the religious upbringing of the girl, and thus they are a core part of the family in the celebration, and traditionally remain lifelong close friends of the family.
The influence of mixed modern life has changed some of the celebrations, but for many Hispanic-American families, they still preserve these traditions and the common goal of celebrating the young woman’s fifteenth birthday and acknowledging her transition to young womanhood. In some Hispanic cultures the Court will even include 14 young women friends and relatives representing each preceding year of her life, and 15 chambelanes as well.
