Luxe File ♥s...

Tied Up and Tousled's Bardow headband

My colorist and I are in love. I love him for keeping my golden tresses runway-ready and he loves me for putting his child through Harvard. So keeping my luxe locks looking their non-brassy best, stylish accessories that add glamour, whimsy or a touch of sparkle are a must. Enter Tied Up and Tousled's Kate Rutter, whose vintage-inspired line of delicate headbands will channel your inner sexy-hippie-cum-silverscreen-siren and are perfect for any occasion - a black-tie gala, mukluk-shopping or long, lazy weekends at the lake house. They also make lovely gifts for your well-groomed girlfriends.
