We are an Australian company that handmakes a range of hair accessories for your little girl. Shop our online store or read our blog below on our complete range of girls hair accessories.
Each one of our handmade hair accessories is made in Perth, Australia using the latest prints and designs available. We have chosen to make them here in Australia rather than import them, this way we can control the quality and materials used to ensure your little girl is receiving the best quality product available.
Our hair accessories are handmade in our boutique studio in Perth and we offer our hair accessories online which excepts Afterpay, credit card and PayPal. We also offer wholesale hair accessories through our range of stockists throughout Australia.
Whether she is leaving the hospital for the first time, staying at home playing with her toys, going to the park to play kiss chasey or hanging out with her school friends, we have the perfect children’s hair accessories for any occasion.
With a selection of five different styles to choose from, your daughter will be spoilt for choice. These include the newborn mini hair bows, baby headbands, larger style headbands, top knots and finally the mum and me matching top knot.
From off whites to match their christening gown to floral patterns to suit those summer dresses we have a broad selection of colours, prints and patterns that will match any outfit.
And age is no barrier as our range is suitable for ages from newborn through to 10 years of age. We have recently released the Mum and baby matching top knots so you and your little girl can be stylish and fashionable together.
Mini Newborn Hair Bows
These newborn headbands are the perfect 1st accessory and are ideal for an infant or newborn baby girl.
The bow headband measures approximately 5cm long and 1.5cm thick making it a beautiful fit. Although our mini baby bows are designed for newborns and infants they are suitable through to 5 years of age.
For our baby bow headbands, we use 100% cotton and in some cases 100% organic cotton depending on the print chosen for the bow itself. For the elastic to go around the babies head we use nude colour nylon elastic. This has been chosen for its soft feel, its unique size and that it doesn’t leave a mark on your babies head.
We make these by cutting the bow fabric and the centre fabric together and iron to take out any creases. Then make the fabric into a bow with the use of the centrepiece of fabric and hand stitch the elastic headband onto the bow. Many headbands are made by gluing the bow onto the elastic however we believe that this method isn’t as good as hand stitching the bow. We find that hand stitching makes the hair bow last longer and more eco-friendly as no glue is used.
Baby Girl Headbands
Our baby girl headbands are the next step up from the newborn hair bows and also made with cotton fabric while the elastic is the same we use for the mini hair bows.
The dimension on the bow measure 5cm in width and has been designed for girls from newborn through to 5 years of age.
Below is a video of how we make our baby headbands. I wish it was this quick however it takes between 5 to 10 minutes to handmake each piece.
We start by cutting the bow fabric and its centrepiece to its desired size and iron. We hand stitch the elastic which is extremely stretchy to the bow to ensure that it won’t come off in the day to date wearing.
The third style is our slightly larger headbands for girls. It is a little bigger than our baby version with the bow measuring 9cm wide. Although the age range for this is newborn through to 10 years of age they make for the perfect toddler headbands.
Our fabric headbands are all made from 100% cotton or 100% organic cotton depending on which fabric is being used. The elastic chooses is a soft nude colour. This is extremely stretchy to make it suitable for newborns, toddlers and older girls.
We make these in the same way we do the newborn and baby versions however we use a little more fabric. Once again no toxins or glues are used in attaching the bow to the elastic.
One of our most popular products, the top knot headband is extremely popular for newborn babies. Also known as a baby turban headband, it is ideal to cover a large selection of the forehead suitable for girls that don’t have a lot of hair.
All our baby head wraps are designed for newborns through to 10 years of age. They measure 69cm in length and when laid out flat have curves to make it easier to tie the knot.
We often get asked how you tie the knot on the headband so we have made this video to demonstrate.
To make our top knot we start out by cutting the cotton fabric to shape in two lots. We then sew the two pieces together and turn it inside out and hand stitch it closed. After hand stitching, iron flat and put it in our packaging and tie the knot ready for the customer.
Mummy and Me matching top knots
This product has been a long time in the making. I wanted to trial the mummy and me top knot with my daughter first before making it available online. After several design changes I have finally come up with the finished product and I couldn’t be happier.
I love matching my clothes and to match with my daughter is something special. We have a few pairs of shoes that match and some shirts but I am just in love with our matching top knot headbands.
The matching mummy and me top knots are made with 100% cotton and our smaller or “me” top knot are exactly the same as the above item. The larger “Mummy” style is suitable for teenage girls or adults. If your girl is older than 10 years please let me know and I will custom make this for you.
We pride ourselves with keeping up to date with the latest trends in fashion and making products that are stylish and current. We purchase our fabrics from both Australian and international suppliers to ensure that the prints we use are both modern and fashionable.
In addition to our current suppliers, we have worked with Perth graphic artists to design four prints exclusively for us. These unique prints are another way we can make sure the product you are receiving is original and on-trend and include the Cactus, Bird Perch, Flamingos and Whales designs.
Sometimes simple is the best option and this is why we have a selection of solid colours. The solid fabric colours include aqua, red, navy, indigo, mustard, black, grey, pink, off white, purple and my personal favourite, burnt almond.
With a selection of pattern fabrics, there is something for everyone.. These fabrics include blossoms on peach, Aqua abstract dots, Feathers, dots on peach, circles, spots on gold, stripes, bird perch, flamingos, swans and black and white stripes.
Every little girl looks adorable in floral headbands and this is why we have hand-picked a range of floral prints. These include the Vintage, Aubrey, victorian vintage, Eucalyptus, olive bouquet, pink blossom Tallulah, succulents and cactus designs.
One of the joys of having a baby girl is being able to choose a cute and beautiful wardrobe for her. We like to help by adding that extra little bit of class with our Australian Made, handmade hair accessories which you can purchase online or from a range of our stockists.
We care for our environment and make sure that our products are as eco-friendly as possible. No glues or toxins used in the making process on any of our products.
Please also note that safety is the most important aspect of any of our products. All our hair accessories are designed to wear over your baby girls head. However, you should supervise your baby 100% when wearing any of our products and they should not sleep with them on.
We love to receive feedback and suggestions. So if you have any question or recommendations please feel free to contact us.
