Jennifer Behr, best known for girlie confections on the head of Blair Waldorf, has turned to the dark side. Her next immense collection of headgear is inspired by Victorian jet jewelry. While you will find nil color, you will find texture and sparkle; duchess satin turbans, nickel hardware, grey pearls, patent leather, flat chains, and romantic belts meld together to create an elegant punk mood. Also notice the models' hair styling for tips on how to wear. I can certainly see this deadly studded headband on new queen bee Jenny Humphrey . . .
Behold, headbands worn squarely across the forehead and pushed slightly above hairline that do not call up images of eponymous celebrities. Brooklyn accessories designer Jennifer Behr designed a range of chic crystal headbands this season which are appropriate for bridal or evening wear. The young designer has, in fact, sold her designs to countless celebrities but is also known for her unique bridal creations and delicate belts. You can purchase her designs from Kabiri as well as her own online store.
Gossip Girl was back this week with a flock of fashionable playwright attire, but what really caught my eye was Blair's post-show ensemble. Despite major drama, the Queen Bee kept her composure in a beautiful, lace-embellished top by Nanette Lepore and equally stunning beaded skirt by Diane von Furstenberg. For accessories, Blair donned a silky rosette headband by Jennifer Behr, black pumps, and her favorite ruby heart ring. Always prim, always perfect!

I'm personally not much of headband girl, but I'll make an exception when it comes to Jennifer Behr's creative confections. For Spring, the accessory designer is offering up an array of bejeweled and neon-spiked headbands along with a new collection of belts. I adore the detailed intricacies and Parisian vibe. This punchy pink double star ribbon headband is a seamless mix of modern meets retro. Love it all.
June! Summer! Heat! Yes. To some, June signifies the halfway point of the year. That may be, but it is also one of the best months of the year. Summer is upon us my friends, and that means many fabulous fashion things. For starters, sales are a plenty. Also, skin is an accessory — so don't forget to wear sunscreen. As well, it's time to rekindle your relationship with your hotter-than-hot swimwear. Are you ready to dive in? I am. And so my must haves contain warm-weather shoes, cropped pants, and a fresh pair of shades to keep me looking cool in the heat.
I was searching around for some cool headbands, scarves and wraps and Jennifer Behr's goodies kept catching my eye. Her trendy headgear is making statements everywhere this season - and from what I understand she's got more to come for Spring. Jennifer worked at Frederic Fekkai for five years as the lead hair accessory designer.
When she left, she decided to branch out and create her own unique line. I just love her stuff and am so happy to have discovered it. She designs comfortable headbands that are a great helper to get you out of bad hair day jams. Just be warned: these head pieces are a lil bit pricey. Here are three of my favorite hair accessories from her collection.
This Wide Leather Headband, $175, is a 3 1/2 inch wide statement piece made from imported Italian leather (hence the price tag). The two bands fasten together and create a knotted look. The headband has an elastic in the back so that you get the best fit possible. Available in black or chocolate brown.
