Alexandre de Paris - Hair Accessories
I have a small, simple hairbrush which I somehow either inherited or stole (I'm not sure.) It was always nice, with a tortoise shell color and reliable boar hair bristles, but being a guy, it was, and is, just a nice, compact hairbrush. For the ladies, this may be more important. It bears the name 'Alexandre de Paris' with a cool lion-type logo on it. Apparently, ol' Alexandre was the one, the original, famous coiffure-arranger to the stars and aristocracy. Later in life, he started his own line of hair accessory products. They are all rather glamourous, and I would tell you what they were if I had any idea what these things were called....barrettes! They do make those, as well as...well...jewelry for the hair, I'd call it. It's all rather pretty. I can't seem to find any online shops other than occasional items on eBay. They have a boutique in NYC where all their products are sold.
