When a little bird gave us the exclusive tip that celeb hairstylist Chris McMillan was joining forces with Emi-Jay — a hair accessory line made by teenage girls — our own inner teens were stoked. Who better to create an accessory alongside creative, youthful minds than Hollywood's "Mane Man," creator of trends and iconic A-list styles (like Jennifer Aniston's)?
And, when we saw the pictures, we were even more impressed and totally eager to get our hands on them. They're like bow ties for our hair; a feminine twist on a menswear-inspired accessory that speaks directly to our hearts. The bow in Seaglass is a particular favorite: an updated, colorful take on the ombre trend. We think it'll look rad sparkling in the sun against our lightened summer locks.
"I love classic hair done in a modern way," McMillan told us. We do, too, which is why we're always looking for new ways to add life to our 'dos, or to, ahem, distract from unwashed locks. These bows are what was missing from our summer uniform, we just didn't know it until we saw them. And, since they double as hair ties, it's a combo of style and function that addresses all of our summer-hair needs.
The hair ties will be available starting today, May 10, for $19.99 at Emi-Jay.
