You know how to take a square piece of paper, fold it with artistry, and turn it into a crane.
Your daughter’s growing locks, however, are an entirely different story.
Instead of getting all bent out of shape, turn to Tomo & Edie. The hair accessories company, started by two local moms, sells Japanese plum blossom hair clips made from deconstructed vintage silk kimonos.
Each of the flowers are hand-sewn and attached to an alligator clip, barrette, or rubber band — which means there’s something for every weight and length of hair.
Through thick and thin.
