Good Hair

i haven’t been able to get the beautiful hair accessories by Brook&Lyn and Jujumade out of my mind since they launched their LA colab series recently. why don’t we dress up our hair more? i’m not one to talk, since i barely ever wear my hair out of a top knot (yes i’m one of those). but it would be nice to see our tresses a bit more jazzed up. not in a diamanté alice band way (shudder) – just in a casual “oh this ceramic barrette? i wear it all the time” way.

also reminded me of this revelation that bobby pins were actually invented to be inserted crinkle side down. did you know that? i did not, and judging by all the ladies in my twitter feed neither did they.

    Lovely. I just bought my mum a ’20’s tortoise shell hair comb for Christmas. I think she’s going to love it! I knew about bobby pins but I think the confusion isn’t helped by the fact that when they’re decorated, it’s on the wrong side, so if you put them in crinkle side down, the decoration would face your head! It’s silly.

    Revelation indeed! But it makes sense, and they might hold hair better that way (?). Lately I’ve really been into wearing one side of my hair held with something like that ( I use the very long ones since I have very thick hair. Not sure whether it’s pretty or not, but it’s very practical. Also, have you seen this ( fantastic use of bobby pins at Rodarte SS2012? Now, to find simple gold bobby pins…

    so pretty. i really need to learn how to braid my hair like that. for some reason, it always looks easy in the tutorials but when i try to do it myself, i can’t.

    Hi Diana!

    I have been really into hair accessories as well! Designed a collection of floral-inspired barrettes, combs, and ponytail holders this past s/s for my etsy shop: And I am working on a line of floral tiaras and crowns for weddings for s/s 2013. I posted an image of my first attempt on my Instagram:
