Hair decoration is nothing new. People have been enjoying it as a fashion statement, for centuries. While the ladies in the French Court fought to create the most elaborate hair styles with jewels, feathers and I believe, sometimes even live birds (can you imagine the mess?). today’s key to hair adornment is to choose a fabulous piece and not to overwhelm with too many at once. If you’re going to wear one special piece, you have to choose wisely. It doesn’t matter if it costs ten dollars, or a hundred dollars or more, it has to make you feel special.
ELLE® has a beautiful Spring collection of delicate, silver, white and bejeweled beauties that are within the price range of just about every woman. I like to call this Spring collection, “Elle’s Belles.” Why? Because the collection is chock full of options, from jeweled headbands, to fancy combs, or maybe just a witty hair pin to tuck into a bun or braid. All are ladylike pieces, perfect for all the special occasions that come up in the warmer months. Of course, they are nice to wear “just because” you deserve something pretty…and affordable, too. So put There’s away all those heavy coats and clunky accessories, and deck yourself from head to toe in crisp, fun, ladylike accents that work with chiffon, lace, cotton, linen, and anything that flutters in the breeze (now that’s using your head)!. Here are some of my favorite pieces from the collection, just to give you a good idea of the delights that await you:
|Delicate hairpins with flowers/6 #30456 |
Accent an updo with one, two or more of these hairpins that will keep your “do” in place, and add a blooming array of jeweled “blossoms”
|jeweled bobby pins 43288 $12.00/6 do more than hold back a few strands of hair, or growing-out bangs. They add a single note accent the even the shortest hair to make it sparkle. Tuck one into the side of your hair to add a tiny accent.|
This Spring Collection of Elle Hair jewelery also features in it’s collection: a soft, travel-friendly silver lame fabric headband to keep hair glam at the pool, beach, or party for just $6.50, and elegant, white fabric “gardenia” in full bloom to clip on your hair, hat, handbag or jacket ($15.00), a set of rhinestone encrusted bobby pins with faceted, rhinestone ball dangles ($20.00/2), a single hairpin with a small, crystal encrusted Star with a chain “tail” dangle with crystal stations ($10.00) and a large, clear plastic comb for securing a french twist or chignon, topped with loops of rhinestones and tiny butterfly in the center.
