"I used accents of black leather in my A/W12 collection and so wanted to create a hairband for Tigi that had the same attitude," Kane explained. "A double strand in soft, mock leather adds toughness and strictness and keeps the hair controlled and modern." The limited-edition headband will be available with the purchase of two Catwalk by Tigi products at participating Tigi salons next month. Wear the sweet but sultry accessory with a tousled updo for cool-girl appeal, or with a ponytail for a crisp, sophisticated style.
Last night in Los Angeles, Keira Knightley looked like a fairy princess with flowers in her hair at the premiere of Seeking a Friend for the End of the World.

Paris Hilton is heating things up in the hair department at the Cannes Film Festival. First we saw her cutting a rug in a pretty purple Alice band at a party on Sunday night and then she sported a silver, eye-shade looking accessory on Monday at the Hollywood Dominos party. On Tuesday, Paris cooled off in the pool wearing turquoise jeweled headwear and at night, she wore a gold band to a fashion party before changing into a crystal hippie-style Alice band to celebrate her documentary flim Paris, Not France. I wonder if the borrowed it from bestie Nicole Richie? Which one of these hair accessories do you think looks the coolest in Cannes?
We've certainly seem some interesting head gear recently, so it doesn't surprise me that fashionista Nicole Richie arrived at the Jenni Kayne and Andy Lecompte Salon Party in Los Angeles dressed from head to toe like a Greek goddess. I think this Alice band/hair piece is quite unique, stylish and elegant. She's managed to give it a slightly bohemian feel pairing it with flowy attire and unkempt waves. What do you think of this golden headdress on Nicole?

Yesterday on the snow-filled streets of Mayfair, Lily Allen shopped at Chanel and Dover Street Market wearing a rather large leaf-inspired Alice band. It looks like this snuggly accessory could either be made out of felt or cashmere, and I can certainly see the draw on such a cold, winter day. Lily paired her headdress with black kohl-rimmed eyes and a blunt-cut fringe. What do you think of her applique Alice band?
Diana Vickers hair might actually get more attention that her voice. Not only has there been buzz surrounding her X Factor bird's nest updo, but earlier this week at the Aussie Day Party at Delfina in London, she was spotted wearing an over-sized, semi-floppy black satin hair ribbon. We know that bows are in style now when it comes to clothing, but how do you feel when they're all tied up in your locks?
Victoria Beckham sure is favouring the fashion of Alice Bands and I can absolutely see why. They're easy to wear, they're fabulous for when your hair isn't cooperating, and they're a stylish accessory. Ever since she went to dinner at Beso in November, she's been spotted wearing them around the world from Milan to Dubai and London.
My favourite headband for evening is the red one since it's so ornate and unique, and for daytime, I prefer the simple, black, double-strapped elastic band. Out of these three Alice bands, which one do you like the most?
Ever since Gossip Girl hit our screens last Spring I have considered alice bands in a whole new light. Originally reserved for young school girls who also wore knee-high socks, bows appeared on the catwalk this season at Luella and Marc by Marc Jacobs.
I have a slight accessory obsession so any excuse to add to it is welcome in my eyes so I'm currently building up an alice band collection. Bows are always good fun in my opinion as they make me feel a little bit like Minnie Mouse (never a bad thing!).
