Fashion Week Forecast: Headdress Gurus at Longchamp

Last night at Longchamp’s event for Fashion’s Night out, I found my eyes wrapped around the black scarf-like object weaved into the golden mane of musician Lykke Li. “I made it myself,” she proclaimed. The piece, and the explanation, was most certainly a statement, one that caught my attention as she ardently spun tunes for the Fashion’s Night Out Longchamp fete last night. (LEFT: LYKKE LI.

I glanced around the room and realized that Lykke wasn’t the only lady liking the hair accessory: scarves, hats and headbands were all draped about well-coiffed heads. Choose your vice: lace, wool, sequins, patchwork, or color. And cover up those tumbling roots and unkempt tresses with an inexpensive statement piece: the hair accessory.
