Who else would wear a bird in their hair? If you’ve seen the Sex and the City movie you’ll know what I’m talking about, it’s the cherry on top of the cake, or the feather on top of the bridal gown that Carrie Bradshaw wears, and later in the film Ms. Bradshaw reveals that it used to have a tweet. Though I like a feather, the idea of wearing an actual bird brought a tear to my eye the next time I saw a little singing Sparrow. Imagine my surprise when no less than three of my friends indicated that they would like to wear a Bradshaw Bird on their heads, that woman has some power! So to give the RSPB a helping hand, and save the birds of our nation from being affixed to hairclips, I have taken it upon myself to source some of the most stylish and bird friendly headwear around. Sultry burlesque, rock and roll flair accessorisers: Love, Lulu Mae, do a particularly striking range of feather style head adornments, such as the “Blue Belle Feather Fascinator” which does fascinate: it’s very Carrie Bradshaw, and not for the shrinking violet.
If something a little more subtle would be up your street then the “Lady Jane Headband” is slightly more muted, and looks like it would also keep your forehead nice and snug.
But if you really want to make a statement then, with Christmas just around the corner, go and buy a festive, glitzy bird tree-decoration, and with a little adjustment you really could wear a bird on your head…wouldn’t that make your hair a nest? Hmm, well it’s all about confidence, get yourself a bird-free bird (just remember that you won’t be able to fly, sorry) and maybe you could dance along to this: the anthem of your new look.
