Smart Mom Picks May 13, 2011
Lizzie, Izzie + James: a "Smart Mom Pick"!
That’s my catchall term for clips, barrettes, ponies, headbands, and whatever else can adorn a little girl’s hair.
My daughter’s birthday present last year was a giant box of hairdoodles.
The only major bummer is that my daughter’s hair is super fine, and a lot of the traditional hair accessories simply don’t stay affixed to her hair. They slide out, and by the time I pick her up after school, it’s danging at the end of a strand of a hair, like a fish on a hook.
Note: I am not a fan of my kid looking like an absolute ragamuffin. And that’s precisely what she looks like with sad hairdoodles that won’t stay in her hair.
I am encouraged by this online retailer of children’s hair accessories called Lizzie, Izzie and James.
The owner of this business started it because she couldn’t find hairdoodles that stayed in her kid’s hair. A woman after my own heart.
Lizzie, Izzie and James makes handmade clips, headbands and more.
The headband pictured above is from their Hydrangea line. All of these headbands are made of wool felt and mounted on a fabric covered headband. Isn’t the detailing on the flower pattern just precious?
One of the other headband collections they have is a sweet blossom pattern.
There are 4-5 other collections of headbands; they range from $10 to $18 each.
The array of hair clips is really cute as well. My daughter would love this “Flutterfly” design.
I also loved this piggie.
Two of the other styles offered include a rainbow and these adorable monogrammed clips.
The hair clips range in price from about $8 to $10.
I think these hairdoodles are really lovely. And, the sizing fits ages 3 up to adult – including the headbands – so these really are an investment you can make in quality accessories that will last a long time. To see all of the adorable styles, go visit Lizzie, Izzie and James.
