Every fashion look can use one or two accessories to really make it pop and give it a touch of your own personality. A hair flower accessory is often the piece of choice for the retro pinup crowd and can be worn by anyone who wants to add a pretty flair to their outfit.
Nicolle Saccone of NicCoCo Creations has been making beautiful custom hair flower accessories for three years. While she can be found on Etsy like so many other crafty folks, she held a party to celebrate the launch of her own website.
I went to celebrate her big launch and catch up with her for few questions on how she started her business:
What inspires your hair flower pieces?
“Definitely retro/pinup style because the flower piece should become a part of the whole picture of the look you are going for. Also the burlesque scene – I love me some glitter and rhinestones!”
How did it start, was it a hobby or did you always plan for it to be a business?
“Total hobby/extra income. I work a full time stressful job so it was almost my therapy. An escape.”
Your pieces are really popular with the pinup lifestyle crowd. When did you feel it was taking off?
“Well thank you. I still don’t feel like it’s ‘taking off.’ It’s always a pleasant surprise when someone loves my pieces or say that they follow my social media pages. I’m like, ‘I just make hair flowers!’”
Held at the at Audrey K. Boutique in Burbank, a super cute little store where her hair flowers can also be found, local friends and customers of Nicolle’s showed up – many dressed in their pinup finest – to celebrate with her and witness a hair demo by Miss Rockabilly Ruby, who gave Nicolle a fancy update, accessorized with some NicCoCo Creations, of course!
What I Wore
For Nicolle’s party I wore a floral ‘60s vintage dress that I paired with a vintage purse, jeweled sandals and one of Nicolle’s double hair flower combs.
