As already expressed elsewhere, I’m incompetent when it comes to styling my own hair…so I take all the help I can get.
Which is why I was so excited when I stumbled across The Candy Thief’s beautiful assortment of very colourful and unique headbands. I almost swooned, and proceeded to spend far too much time during a recent trip to Niagara Falls perusing her flickr stream showcasing even more amazing headbands, as well as other creations (such as handbags, pillows, and skirts).
Friendly, open to requests, and very quick to respond, artist/designer Casey Dwyer (the woman behind The Candy Thief) was very helpful and willing to photograph and show me a number of headbands not yet for sale in her Etsy Shop, to see if she had something in my favourite colour palette…
And lo and behold…she did! I ordered an Alexa Headband (modeled above) in various shades of blue, green and grey. What I love about this model, is that it’s quite large, and spans most of your head…making it more of a statement piece…it’s made of multiple layers of felt that is both stitched, and hand-printed. The craftsmanship is just beautiful (as is the whole effect). It’s become an instant favourite, and I just love how it immediately dresses up my boring hair! Sweet!0
