Thick Hair Accessory Treasures

My hair is currently only about 5 inches long.  I’m currently seeking hair accessories, scarves, and hats to help me fashionably transition along.  There are certain hair accessories I have to avoid because, (1) I have kinky hair that “catches” on metal clasps, ends or fasteners, and (2) being 40+, I want to look like an adult. 

Check out the following websites for beautiful hair accessories and scarves. 

ETSY.  I love unique, handmade items.  There are some very talented artists and crafters on Esty.  I’ve found beautiful barrettes, snoods, rasta hats, and crochet scarves.  Don’t even get me started on the handmade earrings and soap.  We’ll save that for another post.

FRANCE LUXE.  This website has a hair accessory collection to die for and are on the more expensive side.  Check out the double skinny headbands, perfect for short hair.  Although their craftmanship and quality can’t be beat, France Luxe  does sell some ponytail holders with metal ends.  This can cause hair pulling or catching for those of us with kinky or curly hair.  France Luxe hair accessories are sold in department stores such as Whole Foods, Saks 5th Avenue, Nordstrom, Lord & Taylor, etc.

BRUNSLI HAIR TIES AND JEWELRY  For those with long hair who wear their hair loced, natural, braided, or straight, check out Brunsli hair ties.  They are beautifully handmade out of natural products (wood, shells, etc.) and cost between $15 and $40.  They can be adjusted to wear loose or tight, and also doubled to accommodate those of us with shorter hair.  

CLAIRE’S  I’ve always been able to find affordable hair accessories here.  What’s new?

Fan tail hair piece, $3.00  clairtail.jpg  For creating messy updos.  Love this!

Whirl-a-style, $6.00          clairwhirl.jpg  For creating buns and French twists.

SCUNCI  These hair accessories can be found everywhere and fits everybody’s budget.  What’s new for us thick haired folks?  Look what I found.

SCARVES AND HATS.  I buy my scarves and hats from a variety of sources; vintage shops, Salvation Army, and, of course, discount department stores such as Marshall’s, TJ Maxx, and Burlington Coat Factory, who has tons of scarves, as well as headbands, barrettes, and ponytail holders. 

Hopefully this time next summer, I’ll have enough length to rock some creative braided or twist hairstyles.

    Thanks for the shout-out! I’m glad you enjoy them!

    If doubling the hair ties gets tedious, cut and re-knot them to the perfect length.
