I am fascinated with hair accessories. For some reason, I feel naked without some sort of fuss or frill going on in my hair. I think this obsession stems from my time working for Accessorize in their head office, merchandising everything hair related, and being exposed to a plethora of pretty pieces. The latest adornments I have been toying with are these hairbands from New Look. They are a silken fabric, threaded with a thin wire, meaning you can prep and preen the perfect bow. You can twist or knot the fabric and they stay perfectly on your head all day, without having to be tied so tightly, they give you a loathsome headache.
I particularly love the animal print one, superbly tacky for days when I wish to channel by inner Kat Slater. The floral one is perfect to compliment muted outfits, but I don’t think it goes as well in my hair as it did when I was blonde. New Look also have a ditzy daisy print one which I may pick up, and I have also seen quite a few adorning the shelves of H&M. They have a denim one which I think could be quite fun.
Do these hair pieces make you twist and shout?
