Are statement necklaces being replaced by a hot new jewelry trend?

Alicia Keys showed off some heavy hair flair at Monday's Chanel Ready-to-Wear Fall/Winter 2012
presentation -- rocking a giant jeweled headpiece atop a slicked-back bun.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Alicia wearing a gem headpiece; she sported the exotic look at the 2008 American Music Awards with a crystal dangling down the center of her forehead, and at again her 2010 wedding to Swizz Beats, where she wore a diamond princess circlet.

Headpieces are definitely hot in Hollywood right now, as stars like Kim Kardashian, Nicole Richie, Kate Hudson and Fergie have each been spotted donning similar sparkling accessories. It’s no wonder why -- adding charms to your hair is an excellent way to glam-up your ‘do, whether you’re channeling a bohemian, hippie or princess look.

You can find headpieces at various retailers online, including Free People, Kristin Perry's Us Trendy site and even Etsy.
