Wedding Bells Are Ringing...Yes, it's that time of the year! I love wedding season because it provides an opportunity for my creative imagination to soar. I normally get custom orders from brides for hair accessory and/or jewelry designs. All the brides I've worked with have given me creative freedom and it shows through each unique design!
Below are pics of designs I created for brides last season! I created my first veil and a floral hair comb. It was so exciting to make a creative contributions to both ceremonies!

How can naturals who wear short hair use Accented Glory hair accessories?
From brush cuts to TWA's (teeny weeny afros), Accented Glory hair accessories embrace all lengths and can be worn by anyone. Our headbands and head wraps are great hair accents for brush cut naturals. TWA's can rock our headbands, floral hairpins, and head wraps.
Narrow headbands (1" or less) worn slightly behind hairline looks best with short hair. Select printed fabric, feathered, and jeweled headbands to dress up your look. Short haired naturals can also rock narrow headbands bohemian style around the forehead!
When selecting floral hairpins, short haired naturals should choose a moderate sized flower. Remember hair accessories are accents; your natural hair is beautiful, so it should be the main attraction! If you're not allergic, natural flowers are a nice touch. Artificial flowers can be used for both a casual or dressy look. My favorite is printed petals. They allow you to express your style and personality. Accented Glory will be adding back our floral hairpins to our online store in the Spring!
Head wraps come in a variety of sizes and don't have to cover your entire head. Someone with a brush cut could rock a bandana as a head wrap. Naturals with TWA's can use a scarf as a head wrap and tie it behind their hairline, exposing some hair in front.
Shop at Accented Glory's online store to find hair accents perfect for short hair!
