Vintage hair flowers

I absolutely love hair adornments. Whatever the event or season you can guarantee I will be wearing something in my hair. Whether its a simple flower, a headscarf or a fasinator I simply don't feel dressed unless I have something in my barnet.
Victory Rolls are not complete without a flower
It may be in part due to the fact that I have quite rubbish hair. Inherited from my father in its natural state its rather like "thin brown mist" to steal a line from the Mighty Boosh, so by dressing my hair with a variety of hair candy I feel I can somehow turn the tide on the bad card mother nature handed me in the follicle stakes.
Being a bit of  a hair accessory expert I have brought hair clips and fasinators from here, there and everywhere and am fiercely loyal to the few brands I think are truly creative and inspiring. My hit list includes a great face book store called Shanty Tramp who make particularly fabulous big flowers

The very talented Lily Von Pink who also happens to be my best friend make gorgeous hair clips. I love her work and this Geisha girl hair fasinator is one of my all time favourites.Her work has been worn by Imelda May so I'm in good company.

The girls at Tiki Tearaway make wonderful Hawaiian themed hair clips and I'm very fond of all the little bird clips Ive brought from them (I also brought a Christmas robin from them last year which I proudly showed off on Christmas day)

One of the most talented designers of hair fasinators and head scarves in my opinion is Diablo Jo. Whenever I have an important event like a wedding or a big night i always go to Diablo Jo's amazing website. Her creations are often Mexican themed and always amazing. I wore one of her Dracula hair fasinators when I went to the Martini Lounge burlesque night last Halloween and received compliments about it all night.I recently ordered two beautiful headscarves from her including one with Freida Karlo on which are just fab and perfect for what I call school run hair (you know, you look like you have stuck your finger in a plug socket and need urgent assistance well these head scarves offer that)

For seasonal fun items I also buy quite a lot of Clutterfly hair clips. I love to get ones personalised  and I adored their Christmas range last year. My "Be Merry" hair clip will be dug out again at around December the 12th for another round of hair entertainment.

If you never wear hair accessories or feel a bit self conscious about anything too big (as you can see from these photos that train has well and truly left the station with me) then start with something small, a delicate flower or a bejewelled hair clip. You will be amazed how pretty it will make you feel and how once you start no outfit will feel complete unless you are wearing some sort of hair adornment to compliment it.
Clip in a flower, you know you want to.
