According to Wikipedia, "a fascinator is a headpiece, a style of millinery. It is an alternative to a hat for formal attire - usually a large hair decoration on a band or clip with elaborate trimmings and decoration like a formal hat...Bigger than a barette, modern fascinators are commonly made with feathers, flowers or beads and are attached to the hair by a comb, hadband or clip. The fun, fanciful ornament is often embellished with crystals, beads, or loops of ribbon, and attaches via a comb or headband; some have a small, stiff, flat base that can be secured with bobby pins."
