Our burlesque hats collection is one of our most popular, with customers looking for a quirky accessory to add the finishing touch to a carefully crafted burlesque outfit. Red and black styles continue to be the most popular when it comes to hats and our unique ‘hatinators’ continue to impress. The Leg Avenue Red Velvet Mini Top Hat features a metal clip to enable the wearer to fix this unique burlesque hat to the hair with ease and security, while giving the appearance of a top hat – genius. We can’t get enough of these super cute mini hats and the newest addition to our burlesque clothing collection is topped with sequins, an elegant matching feather plus gorgeous red satin bow and prominent cameo jewel accent.
The mini top hat can be styled with a range of hair styles including up do’s and long glamorous hair, as pictured. For burlesque inspired hair style inspiration see the previous post.
Hollywood has been embracing the burlesque 1940’s style hair do all year, with an array of A listers opting for glamorous finger waves, rolls and pinned styles for red carpet events. Old Hollywood is back and celebrities are evoking the glamour of stars such as Elizabeth Taylor, Rita Hayworth and Marlene Dietrich.
It is essential for any burlesque performer or enthusiast to perfect their hairstyle for a performance or event. Burlesque hair styles should be coordinated somewhat with the burlesque outfits and for the performer, the routine should be considered when styling the hair. For inspiration – look to the celebrities who have, this year, adopted the 1940’s pin up styles as their own.
Take the lead from trend setting stars including Rihanna and Katy Perry and go glam for parties and events, burlesque or otherwise, when it comes to your hairstyle. There is of course the option to opt for a burlesque inspired wig if your hair is super short or you just can’t master the waves and rolls. We have a selection of burlesque wigs available in our celebrity wigs selection. A variety of shipping options are available for our European, Australian and American customers, while all UK residents can benefit from FREE delivery.
