A Few of My Favoite Things {Hair Accessories}

Tuesday, January 4, 2011

Hair accessories are all the rage these days, which has me thinking about what I'm going to put in my hair once the veil comes off at the reception. I've found the options to be almost overwhelming! In some ways Etsy makes my life easier and in some ways it makes my life so much harder! I've been sorting through some of my favorites and I'd love to share them with you.

There are flower clips:


There are feather clips (think Carrie Bradshaw in the Sex and the City movie):


There are rhinestone/crystal/pearl embellished combs:


And there are headbands (as seen on Taylor Swift): 

I especially love double and triple headbands!


How in the world am I going to choose? Any favorites?

For you girls who like to DIY, check out my cousin Michelle's blog (The Real Life Mom) to see the hair accessory she made to wear on New Year's Eve. It cost her $1.50 and she wore it well, don't you think!?!?

Or, if you're looking to make one of the flowers on your own (to wear in your hair or use as a pin), check out my friend Jenny's blog (Jenny Bevlin) to find out how!!!

They make it look so easy!!! I haven't had the nerve to try it yet :)

So tell me, how will you be accessorizing your hair on your big day?


  1. I like the first one, the last one, and that feathery one in the girl's hair.
    I'm going pretty simple... some small crystal hair combs. I want the attention to be on ME (and my dress :)

  2. I got your voice message the other day. I'm going to call you tonight. I've been really busy with work this week. And guess what...I'm opening an Etsy store! Want to know what I'll be accessories lol Right now I've just made some headbands, but I will probably sell other items in the future. I will be making some everday stuff, but will also be making some bridal items. I will also be selling some high end items that I make with Swarvoski Crystals.

  3. I really like the 2nd flower and the double strand headband at the end - how do you plan to wear your hair? I think that will make all the difference!

  4. Mine looks exactly like the feather in the girl's hair!!

    I am also loving the double headband at the bottom, how beautiful is that?!

  5. I'm actually making my own hair flower that looks very much like the first one you posted. It is still a work in progress though!
