After an unsuccessful shopping trip to find an affordable statement-making headband, designer Desiree Capote decided to get crafty and make her own. The original headpiece caught her sister-in-law’s eye and that of many gals, all wanting one. A few weeks later, Capote launched her hair accessory line: Demi by Desi. Today the 27-year-old makes a variety of headbands, barrettes and clips using materials such as feathers, sequins, flowers and Swarovski crystals. Her accessories start at $6 for a barrette up to $70 for a one-of-a-kind headband. “My headbands bring out the inner girl in you and they definitely change your attitude,” she said. Her recently launched fall collection features lots of red and hot pink. Demi by Desi is available at boutiques like Electric Couture, Electric Boutique, M-M Couture, X-POSE, and Millie’s Closet.
