A headpiece is an object worn on the head for decoration or protection.
Headpiece may refer to:
- A typically thin metallic crown, headband, or tiara worn around the forehead. Commonly worn by ancient rulers, such as Cleopatra, headpieces usually carry some emblem of religious or political significance.
- A beaded or woven meshwork, often fringed, and worn covering the hair - fascinator.
- The part of a dance or theatrical costume that is worn on the head.
Alternatively, "headpiece" may be a printer's term for decorative element placed at the top of a page; the "tailpiece" was a similar element placed at the bottom of the page.
