At all times women liked to decorate themselves and to underline beauty of the hair. For this purpose at the disposal of ladies always there was a considerable arsenal of “accessories”: from modest colours to “status” diadems and crests. By the way, the last were considered especially smart if have been made of a bone, say, by the elephant. And at the time of more remote, bones in hair in general were an unconditional hit. The idea to return for a short while during a prehistoric epoch has come to girls mind to the American designer JC McCairn.
JC suggests modern girls to construct hairdresses, using combs, hairpins and primitive hairbrushes from a natural material: lightweight deer and elk horns. Sounds horribly? That. “The Bony” and “horned” theme on CuteDecision.com proceeds.
Actually, all is not so terrible and not so cruel. At manufacturing of “old-fashioned” hairpins any animal has not suffered. After all as raw materials the designer uses exclusively horns that males white-tailed deer in the company with elks dump after the marriage period. JC, inspired by rural landscapes of Kansas and ancient history, chooses not needed more bones, processes them and transforms into ornaments. And artiodactyl at this time easy let grow itself new pair of strong horns.
Although deer and elk horn material is extremely durable, JC covers finished articles with a hermetic layer, the author of creative hairpins insistently doesnэt recommend to drop them or to acquaint with water.
JC McCairn sells the bony hairpins in a small little shop on Etsy.com. The prices for original ornaments start from 42 dollars.
