Etsy Crush: Spring Headbands by Lynn Minney
Don’t you just love that “messy” hair is in? Throw on a cute headband, and you’re ready to head out the door!
Wraparound headbands are super hip right now. Not only are headbands a fun way to add a pop of color to your ensemble, they make is easy peasy to get out the door in a flash! No need to do anything special to your hair! Just throw on a wraparound headband, and you’re ready to rock.
Sure, the big box stores have cute headbands. Some of them even have that handmade look! The trouble with those store-bought accessories is that they’re usually made under questionable conditions with materials that aren’t so hot for the planet. Boo!
That’s the bad news. The good news is that you can accessorize in spring style by choosing upcycled, handmade accessories like these sweet headbands from Etsy seller Lynn Minney!
When you buy handmade, you’re supporting an artist who’s making a living from her creativity, and makers like Minney are using reclaimed materials to boot. That means you don’t have to worry about whether your cute new headband contributed to water pollution in China or about how the fabric it’s made from impacted the planet or the folks who produced it.
Phonex-based crafter Lynn Minney makes her reversible headbands from scrap fabric, so every one actually helps divert waste from the landfill! What I love most about these – besides the sweet design and fabric combinations – is that the flower is actually a removable hair clip, so you’re getting three accessories in one: two headbands plus the clip! You could really consider it five-in-one, since you can wear the reversible headband with or without the flower flip. Boom!
