Response To Mariel's Comment...

A Peeking Reader posted the question of what to do with short hair that is, shall we say, not as chic as it once was due to the grow out phase. My hair grows at the rate of a snail's pace, so I absolutely recognize the frustrating transition that can cause you to literally tear it out. While I especially love headbands on short hair as they accentuate the cut, a beautifully beaded band works regardless the length of locks (and wonderfully in the hard to manage stage). Whomever said patience is a virtue must have gone through the process, but had a few of these vintage designed headbands to cushion the crown.

These styles can be found at Jennifer Behr & Etsy.com (Love Mely Accessories, Lily Lady Blue and Rosebud Lips).
