Eco-friendly hair accessories are wonderful hair products, but they are sometimes hard to find. You will find many more online than you will in drug and beauty shops, so take your search there. These pieces are just as durable and beautiful as any other on the market. They might be more beautiful than the others because they are often unique and handmade. These green hair accessories can help keep you stylish while maintaining your lifestyle. Keep your hair and the earth happy with some great barrettes, headbands, hairties, and more. Beautiful and stylish hair clips, barrettes and headbands made by Scunci, Lucy Notions, Olivia Garden, Etsy, and Sophia Bella Maria will add some unique sparkle to your outfit every day.

Scunci Claw Clips
Scunci is now making hair clips that are 100% recycled. Unfortunately, they are still making hair clips that are not recycled, so you have to look for the specific Scunci hair accessories that are 100% recycled. Hopefully, Scunci will soon make all of their accessories 100% recycled. Check the product label before you buy. It is more convenient, because you can often find these recycled claw clips in local drugstores. You won't have to search online.

Lucy Notions created headbands from repurposed fabrics and vintage silk kimono fabrics, instead of creating new fabrics for the headbands. That makes almost every headband unique, and you most likely will not find someone else wearing the same Lucy Notions headband as you. The headbands are colorful, beautiful and stylish. Lucy Notions also sells bangles and jewelry.
