I began collecting headbands and hair accessories when I was about 14-years-old.
I calculated that I must have about £200 worth, ranging from floral crowns, embellished 20’s style and lace bands, hair ties and headscarves and hippy, feathered styles to name but a few. I think my most expensive band was about £26.
I began collecting hair accessories I think because when I was at school I always looked quite neat and preppy and my uniform wasn’t exactly attractive (burgundy blazer anyone?)
Therefore I needed another way to express my style and headbands helped me to do that.
I probably have a headband for every day of the month, after a little while that’s what I became known for.
I tend to go for more standout pieces rather than plainer ones, I like to pick hair accessories which are different to what a lot of other people are wearing. I like to choose one’s which reflect my personality and I used to be quite daring with styles.
This summer, I intend to invest in more giant floral bands and feathered woven styles, to get me through the long (and hopefully hot) summer days.
