Washington weather is rough on your coif, isn’t it, ladies? You spend a fair bit of time blow drying, curling, straightening, applying product; then, walk out the door, and, poof, your hair either falls flat, or goes frizzy, neither of which are desired outcomes.
Whether you’re beach front, pool side, or cubicle bound, you’ve likely already tied your hair up in a bun by the time lunch rolls around. Ideally, you craft a beautiful top knot or sock bun, but we’re not all that gifted. The bun bow is a fun way to add some feminine sass to your hairdo or ensemble.
Our favorite maker of the bun bow is Gina Made It, a woman-owned company with made-in-America products, the exact type of brand we Bitches like to support.
Regina, or Gina, a curly haired gal with a design degree from Parsons, began creating decorative party headbands for her girlfriends and acquaintances. Now, Regina’s company is in full swing, with a full line of “knotical” hair accessories hand-crafted in North Carolina at a worker-owned, eco-friendly factory. Nautical and eco-friendly, two more adjectives the Bitches can get behind!
The bun bows are cheeky enough in solid colors, so I picked some up in my mainstay shades of navy and hot pink. There are also glitter, gingham, and damask floral options if you’re feeling exceptionally spunky, snazzy, or sassy.
Moreover, they look cute on your wrist, and certainly better than a hair tie, when not in your hair.
As much as we think the bun bows are oodles of fun, the simple, classic knotted headbands are classic, functional, and chic. Basically, we want one in every color. They are thin enough that you can stack them, if you’d like; and pair with ensembles that are dressy or laid back.
You can’t go wrong with a gold or silver sparkle headband ($24) come holiday season, or any season, for that matter.
So, order some hair accessories to tame your coif in style this summer, you’ll use them all year round and look good while doin’ it.
