COLETTE MALOUF'S:A MERMAID INSPIRES HAIR ORNAMENTS SPRING 2011

Henri Bendel's  NYC






By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea ---












That's what we hummed to ourselves why we waited to interview the lovely Colette Malouf---a creator of glam hair ornaments---











IMHO replace jewelry as the accessory must have.

Inspired by a mermaid---sensuous, colorful, ...



















---the shapes and textures...a gorgeous and large collection of everything one could possibly put atop one's hair...

Available at Henri Bendel's on NYC's Fifth Avenue.



















Neat---a flip-out book on how to style one's glossy locks and accessorize by the decade...we loved the 70's hairdo.

Two bejeweled hairbands atop a low, loose side ponytail =.good to go 


PLUS: Fairtrade/hand Colette Malouf's items---- made by a Bolivian's women's cooperative...whereby these women can support themselves ---and their families--and leave abusive relationships if need be...


---being paid 3x the going local wage rate...and ---being able to craft these intricate pieces anywhere really---including at home.

BRAVO to that.
