Looks Good: Bobby Pins

July 7, 2009

bobby pins

Hair accessories are definitely one of the top summer trends. Leader of the pack (and still my favorite), Ban.do, has inspired many to pick up their glue guns and follow suit. From Etsy to Urban Outfitters, everyone is peddling feathers and flowers to adorn their summer tresses. It’s a pretty look but not my style. The super girly stuff just isn’t my cup of tea.

While scanning the Fall 09 RTW shows, something at Dior caught my eye and I haven’t been able to shake it. The models’ hair styles were arresting in their strange freshness, hundreds of bobby pins working together to form a coif that was somewhere between 1920s flappers and racing helmets.

While it is not say, the most wearable trend I loved the layering and the simplicity. Instead of hiding bobby pins in my hair, I’m thinking of adapting the Dior look into a summer bang-taming look. Mix and match different pins for a textured hair accessory without so much as a peacock feather or flower petal in sight. The best part is, it’s cheap, I’ll be able to find everything I need at the corner drugstore or the bottom of my toiletry kit.
