|Some “hair jewelry”would make this look, party perfect|
What can you do to dress up your look in an instant,with lots of flash but hardly any cash? Hair accessories aka. “hair jewelry” can add pizazz to your fashions from previous seasons, and help you “partify” your look when you can’t go home to change after work.
Last season, hair fasihon was all about the bling — lots of crystals, rhinestones, beads and sparkle. This season is a bit more understated–a sparkle here, an accent, there. The glitz comes from a well edited use of fabric, tulle, metals of different colors and textures, beads, sequins, crystals, and rhinestones
“Urban Elegance” for xample, is a collection themed with big, lacy, metal flowers with rhinestone centers and tiny, sparkly accents. These pieces look delicate–but most are large enough to stand alone as a statement, in gold, silver or black metal. The “flowers” bloom on salon hair clips, bobbi pins, headbands, and barrettes. Each item in this collection is just $6.99.
“Modern Glam” features black tulle, mesh and metal mixed media hair ornaments with tulle “flowers” sporting black sequin and beaded centers. They glimmer in candlelight, add a bit of jeweled allure to hair of any lengtn (I especially like the slim black, elastic headband that can we worn as a traditional hairband, or worn across the forehead, flapper style. This works on everything from a super-short style, to super-long hair. It is black-tie dressing (for your head). These pieces rival the expensive ones you’ll see in pricey boutiques, but they won’t cost you a fortune–they’re just $5.99 per piece!
