Love your work !

The Bohemian Like You Headband is absoulutely gorgeous! I wish i lived in the US as i would be purchasing several items from this site! Im not sure if I can enter this competition but i will anyway. It's my favourite because the lovely flower is great for spring/summer trends, it would look beautiful on blonde/brunette or red hair! Being brunette, i would personally wear it with a white summery dress and it would look beautiful! waaaah i love it! x x x x
#15 Courtney on 2009-03-13 09:10

#16 seth on 2009-03-13 09:10

I'm definitely a fan of the floral headband you're wearing in the photo!
#19 emma (Homepage) on 2009-03-13 09:42
What an adorable model! It's so hard to pick my favorite. I think "Secret Garden" is my top choice! It is so feminine and pretty and I can just see it paired with a white or pastel-colored sundress...
#20 Leia (Homepage) on 2009-03-13 09:45
Well first I love that you have one called Santa Monica. I lived there for a couple years and I love it there. It's great city too bad it's totally surrounded by LA. Thank God for the ocean.

My favorite would have to be this one featured here. I love it! "Bohemian Like You" like me!
#21 melissa (Homepage) on 2009-03-13 09:45
I really like the pink passion one. I know just the outfit I'd wear it with, too...
#22 Abbi on 2009-03-13 09:46
My favorite is the "Find Me In The Garden" headband. It's absolutely gorgeous.
#23 Cydney on 2009-03-13 09:53
I love everything, but the sparkling sun headband is really unique!
#24 Blair (Homepage) on 2009-03-13 09:54
meet me at woodstock is super cute, but the elastic in the back seems a bit too significant. it might look funny on top of hair - but i would probably buy it anyway!
#25 allison (Homepage) on 2009-03-13 10:03
Love this!
#26 emy on 2009-03-13 10:09

I need the sparkling sun so bad! It's gorgeous!! Plus, it feels like winter is going to last forever here in Canada... If I win, I could dance my winter blues away wearing that pretty shiny thing :-)
#42 Emilie on 2009-03-13 12:48
I am LOVING the "Fly Away Headband"! It's so classic, and you could easily dress it up or down.
#43 Sandra on 2009-03-13 13:21
The Sparkling Sun is gorgeous and the perfect accessory to accompany my vintage off-white lace dress and my grandmother's pearls and chunky bracelets. Granny had style!
#44 Stacy on 2009-03-13 14:09

I love the Bohemian Like You headband best!
#47 Cecilia on 2009-03-13 16:20
I wish the example on this post wasn't sold out :-( But I also love the 'Meet Me at Woodstock' -it's the most functional; all of the headbands are amazing, but I can't see myself wearing huge flower headbands anytime soon.
#48 Stephanie on 2009-03-13 16:58
i adore the sparkling sun headband!! :-)
#49 Lila on 2009-03-13 18:09
"Meet Me at Woodstock" is in the air and in your HAIR! Gives a true 60's look that is now a classic.

intertwined gold.

all of Lisa's designs are wonderful! and she is a pleasure to work with. she made four custom headbands for me in the past two weeks, and i love them all! i can't wait to rock them this spring. i'll even use one of the custom ones for my wedding. i would recommend her to all! sparkling sun is such a perfect detail: i'd buy one for myself and give a winning item to a friend. then brag about how wonderful Lisa's work is-- love her!
#55 shira on 2009-03-13 21:49

#58 Meg Moen (Homepage) on 2009-03-14 03:08

#59 Izalika on 2009-03-14 08:27
I love the sparkly clips, like the Red Riding Hood one.
#60 Amelia (Homepage) on 2009-03-14 08:40
I love the Secret Garden headband! Would look perfect with my grad dress!
#61 Meg on 2009-03-14 11:49
Ah! I'm no good at this, I can never pick just one favorite. Instead, I'll mention the two I love :o).

"Sun is Shining": it's absolutely perfect for the sunny days ahead; adding just the right pop of color... desperately needed for someone with black hair like me!

"Meet Me at Woodstock": this hints at the free-spirited nature of the wearer. I can picture wearing this to the several music festivals (including the Montreal Jazz Fest!) that I have my heart set on going to this summer.

Regardless of whether or not I win, I'm really grateful that this shop was brought to our attention. Makes me wish the warmer days would get here faster.
#62 Claudia on 2009-03-14 12:41
Brilliant Dance Headband or Secret Garden Headband !!!!!!

#69 Crista on 2009-03-15 10:32
The Felt Flower Hairband is amazing. I love how the swirl in the center adds quirkiness and I love the red/black/white combination.
#70 Seyi on 2009-03-15 10:59
I looove it! I already have a headband like that and now I'm thinking I might pick up a cute fake flower to glue on it.
#71 Sarah (Homepage) on 2009-03-15 18:45
I love the poppy hair comb! I love poppies everything is usually red, red, red. I like red but, it's refreshing to see something in creamy~ivory color. Gorgeous!
#72 Rachel on 2009-03-15 23:30
Meet me at woodstock!
#73 Ida on 2009-03-16 00:34
My favorite is your "Tell me about it Stud" headband-not only is it chic, but I love the tongue 'n cheek title.
#74 Becky (Homepage) on 2009-03-16 09:12
My favorite is definitely the one you've displayed - gorgeous! I would love to win it because when I tried to buy it, it was already sold out :-(
#75 Shannon on 2009-03-16 10:47
Hi Shannon,
Any headbands that you see that are sold out can be remade. I also do custom orders. Thanks a ton!
