Question What do big girls want?

I have a few salons who buy wholesale from me. They are requesting some hair accessories that are a little more mature. I am creative but I don't even know where to start. All I can think of is black. Anyone know where I can get some ideas or inspiration?

I'm looking to make clippies, bobby pins, headbands, bows. I want something that is suitable for teenagers and up. TIA

You don't have stick with black, anything with zebra print is great, singed flowers any color my dd is 12 and loves bows, I had some girls in my store on saturday I would say they were 18'ish they purchased 4" gerbera daisies, a couple of 4" bows, and some bitty bows even a pair of monkey sculptures.. HTH

I make these and let me tell you, ALL ages grab these when I have them. I only brought 4 of them one time to a show and they sold in the first 15 minutes for $7 each. I wear one in my hair from time to time either alone or attached to my metal headband and I always get compliments and people asking me where I got it. One long zipper can make two flowers. Hope that helps.

I think flower clips with rhinestones & those toggle headbands. I've seen lots of teens with just regular simple bows actually.

Depending on what age they are, tweens....peace signs, skulls with hot pink, older age, animal! Especially the animal print lycra headbands. Any kind of bling, like a zebra daisy with a rhinestone, fabric flowers and singed flowers.
