Boston Hair Comb
Ellen Hunter NYC combs are the easiest way to make a statement and can be worn and styled multiple ways. Wear a comb on the side of the head for a sideswept glamorous look, or pull hair halfway back with gorgeous volume and a comb in the back. The combs will secure best into hair when they are pushed in against the grain of the hair. They lock into place and are a stunning way to wear “hair jewelry.” The endless styles that can be created by wearing an Ellen Hunter comb make them a perfect accessory to toss in your handbag and throw on whenever you want to accessorize outside the box! Each comb is hand made in New York from 24 karat gold or rhodium plated findings and Swarovski crystals. Carrie Underwood wore one on the CMA red carpet!
