flair for your hair!

I’ve been so excited for this post! I know this might seem crazy but you must must must take a little journey over to the Elizabeth Heard Etsy shop and pick yourself up a barrette. These are on heavy rotation right now because they are not only charming but practical, and actually hold your hair perfectly!

There are “party animals” like this elephant (perfect to pair with Lilly Pulitzer!) and a rhino and seriously beautiful agate ones – keep scrolling to get a peek of those. I always had bows and barrettes in my hair growing up (did you see my extensive bows here?) and this is the perfect way to add a little flair (as Elizabeth has coined: flair for your hair!) without looking like a child!

Elizabeth Heard is an independent line of carefully crafted hair accessories. Created by designer, Elizabeth Heard White, the accessories are designed for women to find their finishing touch by adding a dose of flair to the hair. Each barrette from Elizabeth Heard is individually hand-crafted with traditional accessory making techniques and inspected for flaws before heading out the door. The line pays tribute to the designer’s middle name as well as the name of her grandmother, the queen of flair.

Sometimes when you order things on etsy its a little sloppy. Maybe the edges aren’t perfectly hemmed, something isn’t totally glued straight, etc. That is not the case with Elizabeth Heard Barrettes. These look like you picked them up at Nordstrom! There is no hint that these are anything less than perfectly manufactured. They feel totally solid, don’t slip down your hair like some barrettes can do. It’s not that I was really surprised, its just…thats not always the case! And look how cute the etching is on the back!

A little introduction to Elizabeth, the lady behind the barrettes: I have an unabashed obsession with hair barrettes, and have since childhood. From swimming to sleeping, you would rarely find me without one. My love for barrettes stayed in tact but noticed a niche in the market for quality and unique hair accessories. I always dreamed of starting my own line and attended Parsons School of Design after graduating from SMU in Dallas, TX where I was able to hone my skills for crafting custom hair wear. My barrettes began as a fun personal passion and have recently evolved into a small online and wholesale business. I am so grateful for the women with flair who find their finishing touch with one of my barrettes and am really excited for what’s to come.
