I don’t know about you but in the summer my must have accessory is always for my hair.  With the  unruliness of  beach and summer hair, going natural is simple with the right accessories.  Wether  it’s to clip your bangs to the side,  finish off an elaborate braid, or push summer hair back with a beautiful headband, this is my go to accessory.

The first collection is from Jennifer Behr, it is handcrafted here in NY and there is a wide range of styles from everyday headpieces, delicate florals and edgy barrettes to blinged out evening line.

ALEXANDRE DE PARIS

I don’t know if it’s the nostalgia of my childhood memories of my  mom buying me these swarowski encrusted baby hair clips from Alexande de Paris while visiting Paris or the fact that I kept them for a lifetime, but these works of art are truly special.  Yes they are expensive, small barrettes and clips start around $35 and go all the way upwards past $1000, but they are timeless, and are the ultimate standard for luxe hair accessories.  The store in Paris has a more elaborate selection with more intricate designs .  But there is also stores around the world including the NY store which has its own online shop.
