What: Lint Factory Jewelry
Why: When jewelry comes to mind, we think of the staples–necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and so on. But why play it so safe? Self-proclaimed Head Mistress, Colleen McCann, has devoted her time and energy to the area above the neck, creating a gorgeous line of jewelry for your hair! Her collection, Lint Factory, offers an array of pieces that can be pinned, clipped, or placed ‘chopstick’-style in your hair to spice up that ‘do and add a bit of unexpected pizzazz to any ensemble.
Ms. McCann works with different metals as well as a variety of baubles for her pieces, including Japanese porcelain beads, embroidered patches, and funky tapestry tassels. They range from the timeless and elegant to the downright fierce.
For the really daring accessoristas, there are ear cuffs, which are daunting at first glance but surprisingly comfortable to wear. Lint Factory jewelry has been featured on TLC’s makeover series and in Nylon (among other fashion-forward publications). Although based in NYC, Lint Factory can also be found in stylish boutiques in Seattle and Austin and online. So let your hair down for once and allow this far out trend to go straight to your head.
