Sometimes, bigger isn’t better. Think: sippy spills, temper tantrums, and your alarming tolerance of Elmo’s voice.
Add petite barrettes and headbands from Little Cookies to the list. Local mom Clarissa Eckart’s charming alternatives to huge bows typically worn by Southern belles come in sweet designs like cupcakes, birds, and butterflies. Each is hand-embroidered from felted wool and available in baby, toddler, and big-girl sizes.
The best news? They grip the finest of hair.
And that’s no small wonder.
