Bling for your hair: the newest summer fad?



 Let me preface this by voicing my support of creative summer accessories. With the oppressive heat limiting our wardrobe choices to whatever's least likely to show sweat stains, we need all the embellishment options we can get. A light scarf, a flashy necklace, a pair of eye-catching sandals - bring 'em on.

But I'm not sure how I feel about this new fashion statement.


I noticed them on the instructor of a yoga class I went to last week and had to ask.

"They're Hair Shimmers! Bling for your hair!" she gushed, flipping her locks to catch the light. According to the company's website, Hair Shimmers are made of Thai silk and come in 16 colors. According to the yoga instructor, you can leave them in for months - through countless shampoos, blow dries or downward facing dogs.

But, really, is this practical? Do we really want to grace the cubicle pod looking like a Spice Girl

What do you think?
