No question hair accessories are having a moment, probably inspired by tiaras (as seen in Netflix’s The Crown and other period dramas), not to mention royal weddings taking place in the present day.
We’ve also seen them on the red carpet, from Rachel Weisz’s Grecian-inspired Cartier headband and Gemma Chan’s diamond hairpins at the 2019 Oscars, and let’s not even start on what was going on at this year’s Met Gala (hello, Lily Collins!).
Los Angeles–based jewelry designer Suzanne Kalan has been tracking this trend right along with us and last month unveiled a collection of hairpins and headbands during Las Vegas Jewelry Week, offering her legions of fans yet another way to incorporate her wildly popular, hugely admired Fireworks collection into their looks, from everyday to special occasion.
“The hair accessory trend is huge at the moment, and we wanted to show our take on it by producing pieces that feature our signature baguette-cut designs,” says Kalan. “We have also received several requests from our customers to create these pieces. The 14k collection is wonderful, as it allows for us to create many different options. We have so many colorful topaz stones that the customers can choose from in all shapes and sizes.”
A selection of the hairpins in 18k gold is currently available exclusively on Net-a-Porter; the core group will be ready to ship to retailers such as Bergdorf Goodman, Ylang 23, and Neiman Marcus this November, just in time for holiday wardrobing and gifting.
Kalan says that there will be opportunities for consumers to order custom versions of the hair accessories as well. “We always love working with customers or retail partners to create one-of-a-kind designs,” she says.
