Posted by: Christina Ponte

The perfect party dress? Check. Fabulous matching shoes? Check. Impeccable make-up? Check. An eye-catching piece of hair jewelry? “Hair jewelry?” you hear yourself asking. Don’t let yourself walk out the door without this important finishing touch. From runways to the red carpet, fashionable hair accessories are making lasting impressions and gaining in popularity, especially as we gear up for a lavish holiday season.

Until recently, the only time a modern-day woman would consider having a piece of jewelry incorporated into her hairstyle was at her wedding, in the form of a tiara or bejeweled comb. Within the last few years however, the selection with which to adorn your hair on a day-to-day basis is endless. The modern day lass has at her disposal clips, claws, pins, barrettes, combs, and the list goes on.

The revival in hair jewelry has been spurred by artisans and crafters now catering to an ever-growing demand in the market. Hair jewelry suits all styles from a short pixie cut, to a luxurious long mane, and every length in between. Also, a stunning piece can add a much needed “wow” factor to a simple, everyday style like the common ponytail. 
Hilary Swank wore a dazzling brown-and-white Chopard diamond orchid hair brooch at the recent Golden Globes, and looked fabulous.
Realistically, not many women can justify spending thousands of dollars on diamond pieces for their locks as worn by their favorite celebrities. Hence, artists, designers, and craftspeople have been busy producing stunning pieces for us urban princesses. Crystal designer Swarovski also offers a rich collection of hair accessories at a fraction of the price most couture labels charge.
And what to do if it’s a little one who needs her delicate tresses dressed? Toronto designer Flowerpot Designs offers hair accessories fit for tots. Each of their clips is handmade so no two are ever the same. These stylish hair clips feature one-of-a-kind knitted embellishments, velvet ribbon lining, and a magnetic strip to hold even the finest baby hair – simply perfect for every small princess.
When all eyes are on you this holiday season, you'll want to look beautiful from head to toe. So invest in a piece of hair jewelry, and be ready to sparkle the night away.
