Hair accessories always feel a bit regal and unnecessary and that’s precisely why they’re almost never out of fashion. Place that flower behind your ear or a headband neatly over a messy bun and it feels like the only finishing touch you need. And since you’re always aware of them, unlike other jewellery and accessories, they can give you a sense of purpose or power.
I discovered Her Curious Nature on the ground floor of Topshop Oxford Circus so I’m not claiming to have found a secret with this one but I thought I’d share it all the same. They’ve got some absolutely beautiful headpieces from boho, flower garlands to evening, velvety headbands and the prices seemed to be around £25 from the pieces that I saw. They also do bespoke and made to order pieces which I imagine will cost a little more.
Wearing hair accessories is a bit like putting on your Sunday best – listen to these words of wisdom from one of my favourite musicals, Hello Dolly and you’ll see what I mean.
