Like many of fashion's best surprises, HOTHEAD accessories started serendipitously. Founders Jerilynn Ratcliff and Nicole Buckland were busy moms and tennis players looking to create a hip line of tennis clothing. While persuing textiles for their tennis designs, the duo, who both come from creative backgrounds, stumbled upon an elastic that was beginning to debut on the market as hair ties. They purchased some elastic and instantly thought how fabulous it would be to embellish the plain elastic to create chic hair ties and headbands. The notion that hair ties were worn as much on the wrist as in the hair launched the idea of creating a hair tie that doubled as a bracelet. The creative juices began flowing and they created several styles for themselves and their family.
A week later, Jerilynn and Nicole showed a bag of their creations to a group of friends to gauge interest. The designers were swarmed and began taking orders as fast as they could. "We weren't looking to get in the hair accessory business-it found us," says Nicole. "We had a great idea, then found there was a demand for unique, quality hair accessories."
In 2011 HOTHEAD accessories was officially launched.
Now, the head designers and co-owners of HOTHEAD accessories, Jerilynn and Nicole oversee all aspects of the emerging brand, which sells in retail stores and boutiques nationwide.
