twist and shout



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?

Arash Mazinani said...

They all look fantastic with your new hair. I'm a particular fan of the leopard print. I know leopard print can look a little trashy but I actually like seeing it lol. I have noticed that you do tend to have some sort of hair accessory in a lot of your pictures and you tend to have your hair up quite a lot. I guess it just gives a you an excuse to get some more fan hair accessories.

damm I'm really wanting your hair colour, what a gorgeous vibrant red! Love the accessories in your hair, I do find it hard to come up with such stylings for my hair - maybe I should do a stint at Accessorize to learn ;)
These pictures really make me want to try them at least ;)

Beatrice said...

Yes! I love hair accessories, especially anything patterned. Anytime I wear a really boring outfit, my hair will always be done up with a scarf.

*sigh* I love your hair colour! It compliments the accessories so well.

Hannah said...

Your hair looks absolutely beautiful, I'm in love with the colour!

The bows look so nice as well, love them both :) xx
