Natural Hair Accessory Entrepreneurs

Hair Candy Anyone?

Source sweetgreetingsshildon.co.uk
Who said that locked or kinky, coily hair divas cannot shine with style? We can! Just like any other girl and maybe even brighter. These beautiful creations add pizzazz to your hair and your outfit. Take a look at some of these luscious gems! 

These entrepreneurs are stars! I am one for fine craftsmanship and each one of these has that edge and panache that I simply find hard to put into words. If you are interested in purchasing anything, please contact the designer via any one of their social media connections.

In my opinion, all of them work and achieve the same goal: Bringing smiles to the faces of so many women and men. 

One other fact I found amazing: I found 2 of these entrepreneurs (the 2 beautiful ladies) on Twitter! 

Sahara Hair tie
Sarah's site is much more than what I first thought of given the title. Stunning beads, shells and items made of copper and other metals are to be found online at Sarenzo Beads. Some of the bracelets and even earrings are wrapped in eye-catching fabric designs.

She uses an array of colours and textures. And her hair ties are not limited to being in the shape of a circle either. This versatile artist incorporates designs in hearts, oblong shapes and teardrop.Wearing one of Sarah's creations will definitely turn heads. Her hair ties are flexible as they may be worn as a ponytail tie or as a headband. Locs or coils! FLEXIBLE! 

The hair chains are definitely a first for me. I have never seen anyone else making something like this! You attach the larger shape to your hair. The end of the chain has a hook which you slip through the hole where you'd normally wear your earring. Definitely unique and worth a try.

Items are priced from as low as US$10! Sarenzo Beads specializes in handmade:
  • hair ties - like the one featured above
  • hair tie sets w/earrings
  • loc/ponytail holder
  • hair chains
As well as:

Paula Hair tie
Tomoka's Twists creations will also brighten your look! MiMi of Tomoka's Twists will deliver stunning handmade pieces each and every time. Her one of a kind twists suit any type of hair and may be worn as headbands or even when your hair is in a ponytail. They are that flexible on dreads or kinky hair! I can also imagine them being worn on hair that is braided for those out there who might be transitioning via that option. The choices are numerous!

MiMi uses a variety of materials, too: acrylic beads and discs, wood, crochet, bendable wire. Items abound in various colours, shapes and textures. I like how vibrant and stylish each design looks.

When putting on the hair twist, let's say around your head, the bendable wire ends are long enough to be twisted around each other and latched; to ensure it does not loosen and fall off. The level of tension is left up to you to decide. So, you can let your beads dangle to the side or at the front. The choice is yours!

The hair ties are fairly simply to use, too. The long stem end is slipped through the circular opening to keep it fastened, so to speak.  MiMi has also designed a couple additional low profile ties which men with locs might be more inclined to sport.

And all that jazz Hair twist set
Prices vary depending on the type of piece you choose (I've seen from as low as US$7!). And, you must be warned, the items don't seem to stay on site for too long either!!

Mimi specializes in:
  • hair twists
  • hair ties
  • Good Hair Hair twist
  • hair sticks
  • clips
As well as:
  • hairbands
  • earrings
  • purchases in bulk

I'm not new to any of Jamal's work. He and the designers at Crystal Forms are, in my own words...BOSSES! Making an absolute choice of things to purchase from Sarenzo Beads and Tomoka's Twists has been difficult. I see so many things I like...it's going to be a tough call. Hopefully this summer after my freeform challenge, this will be how I reward myself...with some new accessories added to my arsenal!

Do you own any of the creations from either of the three designers featured? How do you wear yours?

*I am not a marketing consultant of any kind. Nor have I been asked to promote the business of any of the aforementioned entities.  Thank you.
