About two years ago I looked all over the place for beautiful hair accessories and fascinators for my bridesmaids and I to wear at my wedding, nothing too blingy, something with a hint of class and shabby chic-ness but I couldn’t find anything that I liked. All the nicer stuff came with a huge price tag otherwise it was just a standard boring High Street accessory with no character.
A few months after my wedding my brother got married and it was at that point I decided to put my creative skills to good use and make my Mum and I some pretty hair accessories. The result? Loads of people asked us where we got our pretty hair decorations and after removing mine momentarily and placing on a table it got stolen – that was the biggest compliment ever!
The startup of my Company Ooh La La Plume initiated soon after and now I spend most of my time in my workshop making gorgeous hair accessories for women who want that little something extra special to help dress up or finish off their wedding day, party, race day or extra special occasion. I search high and low for fascinator materials from all over the world and the UK. I love making them as much as my customers love wearing them 🙂
