Republic of Pigtails Brings Beautiful Flair to Hair

Don’t shoot the messengers, but it’s time to start thinking about back to school displays. And no display will be complete without the perfect accessory for the all-important first day outfit. And then there’s school picture day. And holidays. Well, you get the picture. And that picture gets prettier with the Republic of Pigtails, a collection of handmade hair accessories that go beyond the glass beads and into a fashionable fairytale.

Rika Gunawan dedicated Republic of Pigtails to her daughter and their edgy friends who love to look fabulous. Each accessory is named after a family member or friend who inspired Rika. Like those ladies, each piece has its own identity and personality.

The Polina Pigtail Holder in Sunflower is a fantastic finishing touch to any outfit. With a pearl ball wrapped up in lace, it’s fancy enough for pictures or parties. The sunflower color is hot for fall, but the Polina also comes in steel blue, pink carnation and carrot. For a more subtle look the Amber Pigtail Holder is fashioned from eyelet fabric with delicate metallic gold hardware accents. From Amber to Andi, the Andi Hair clip is infinitely versatile. Playful layers of three types of fabrics create a fresh take on the classic bow. Colors like apple, sage, marigold, jet and raspberry will coordinate with any style.

Headbands continue to be a hot trend, and the Starry Night Headband will turn heads. This suede headband features star-shaped metal to add sparkle to second-day hair. The Michelle is an attention-grabber thanks to the hint of gold sparkle in the detailed texture of the headband. The shimmering pearl beads complete the design that toes the line between vintage and modern.

Headbands aren’t limited to those who can walk, either! Republic of Pigtails offers beautiful baby headbands that are great for family photos and just for oohs and aahs. The Red Rose is designed for 6-12 months and is accented with a red flower and precious pearls. For those just getting up on their feet, the Footprint headband is accented with pink colored foot print pattern lace, rhinestones, pearls and tulle in a fuchsia lace elastic band .

Thanks to the royals, fascinators have made a fascinating comeback and Republic of Pigtails is on board with a collection of actual hats and brooches to add flair. Bring flair to hair everywhere and all hail the Republic of Pigtails at
