Braids and floral crowns worn iconically by Frida Kahlo
Brightly colored braided headbands are not only the completion of a perfect Mexican costume, they are also part of today's fashion trends, for bridal, for parties, or just because you are a Frida girl in your heart of hearts. You don't need to have long hair, or to spend time trying to braid ribbons into your hair!
These braided satin headbands and floral crowns and sprays are completely authentic and made one by one in the Isthmus region of Oaxaca. We have a wide variety of colors and floral combinations. Please keep in mind as you select from the choices below that there may be some slight variations in color and flowers due to the handmade nature of these items.
The headband (trenza) is one size and finished with elastic, and comes plain or with a large satin flower bow and can be worn with floral crowns (diademas) or sprays (tocados) to adorn the front, back or side of the head. All the floral hairpieces are flexible so they can be arranged and affixed with hairpins.
