trashy

Only wonderful things could come out of a studio like this. And they do.

A few months ago I ran across Heather Baily's site. I instantly feel in love with Trash Ties and I ordered a set of small and large. They are really great for a girl like me who, most days, has exactly 23 seconds to do something with my hair. I'm a big proponent of the bun. Buns are the saving grace of working women. Back and up is the only way to go when you are welding a jewelry torch or wrestling small children during church. Thing is, I'm not really the slick, manicured bun type of gal. I'm more of the messy, funky type so Trash Ties are perfect for me.

Yeah, I like to trash it up every now and then.










Go to Heather's site and check out the other great stuff she is doing. Then come back and leave a comment to be in the drawing for Trash Ties. A winner will be randomly chosen on Monday.

These look interesting. I have been trying to figure out new up do's for my hair cause I am teaching everyday and you can't workout with your hair down. So pick me!

Ok....this is so funny...i absolutely love Heather Bailey's collection! She has some of the best fabric! I purchased some of her fabric for a project i'm working on....haven't tried the hair ties, but those look fabulous too!

I have wanted those forever and wondered if they really work! I love wearing my hair up, but in a messy way... Great to know they are as fab as they look!

If I only had hair long enough to warrant being tied in knots--it looks beautiful.

i've been curious about trash ties since they were launched, and still haven't tried them. i'd love a shot, thanks!

Those trash ties looks so awesome!
I spend approximately 11 seconds doing my hair. My "style" consists of twisting my hair up into a clip, shoving it back with a headband, or tying it into a low pony. Hardly chic for a woman who prides herself on having an awesome wardrobe of unusual pieces.

I'm a mom of 2 boys so I never really get a chance to do my hair nicely. These Trash Ties would be great for me.

What a cute and easy way to pull up my mop of hair. Being a mom dosn't allow too much time in the bathroom primping. I usually just pony tail it and go.

jamie said...

I have super long hair and work as a nanny. I refuse to cut it so it's mainly up in a bun. This would be amazing!

I need to make my items look this good in my shop photos!! what a great idea the hair ties are, very covetable and even with instructions as to different hair 'do's' wonderful, maybe one day my hair will look this good! ;0

I love the whole website! Those ties look interesting. And if there is something to make messing with my long hair easier...I am all for it!

I am ((so))) intrigued by these Trash Ties. I'm imagining something like bread ties - but they look more fancy. I wish they had a vid on the sight so I could really picture how they work.

Please enter me in the drawing! thanks.
