Here @mrspresidentandco we are obsessed with hair accessories and our love for headbands, barrettes, hair clips, hair pins and pony holders is real. A few things to keep in mind: Gold is the new reigning neutral. Color is the finish du jour. And headbands-like, say, the feminine and ultra chic pieces from the new collection-will have you wanting in multiples-which is precisely why they are quintessential Mrs. President & Co.
Accessories designer Angela Velayos, Brazilian born, UC Berkeley educated and busy mother of two, converges fashion with functionality in Mrs. President & Co., a modern line of accessories with a minimalist approach that blends clean line pieces with sculptural, golden elements. Her love and enchantment for hair accessories started as a child and she has now made her passion for hair accessories into a fulfilling career. Her collection of wearable designs and polished finishes go seamlessly from day to night. Effortlessly chic in timeless silhouettes, Velayos’ charming designs artfully highlight any hairstyle while giving women of all backgrounds an easy and practical way to add glamour and elegance to an everyday look.
