As I’ve said before here, I don’t really do fashion. I wear what’s good for me, and although there are occasional things I get excited about – accessories, mostly – I don’t really keep up with trends.
There are certain things that make me feel really, really good about how I look though. For example Converse trainers; cliche or not, when I’m wearing Chucks I feel like I’m dressed as myself, if that makes sense (or at the very least if I’m wearing hi-tops; I’m usually fussy about them and they MUST be Chucks but I have an Iron Fist pair that jingle while you walk and I love them and see I’m getting excited now).
But recently I discovered Elflocks, made by the lovely Bryony Whistlecraft at Woodland Wild. She makes full-sized dreads in a variety of colours and I very much wanted a set… But my hair is very fine and I didn’t think it would support them. So I was delighted to see that she sold them as mini-clips too, and after buying my first set I adored them so much I decided to complete the set!
So this is basically me showing off my sets and saying that they’re amazing and if you ever want to brighten up your hair without hitting the dye bottle (and I’m far too afraid to in case I never get my natural colour back) then Bryony definitely deserves your custom – the locks are beautifully made.
It all started with this pair, the purple and pink Faery design. Although I love all the types I think these are my favourites as, well, they’re purple, and I’m all about the faeries. I felt so great and brightened up wearing these that I had to get the rest of the colours!
Next came the blue set, the Mermaid design.
These are such a bright vibrant blue, with teal mixed in (teal and purple are my favourite colours so again, these were a winner for me). They’re gorgeous and stand out so well against your hair.
Next up, the Sprite style. You know how they say redheads can’t wear red?
The Sprite style are red, orange and pink, and they are BRIGHT. But that’s their appeal!
The next set is a little more muted but no less gorgeous:
These are the Dryad style, and as you might have guessed from the colours a Dryad is a tree spirit. For when you’re feeling, well, a little more earthy. :)
And finally, we’re going to be Pixie-led…
Elflocks brighten me up, as well as my hair. They let me add a little twist of uniqueness to my look without having to faff about with dye and styling. They make me feel, well, more “me”, more confident and more colourful. I adore them, and I’m so grateful to Bryony for making them!
She also offers other handmade delights on her site so have a nosey around… And maybe pick up some Elflocks for yourself!
