About Sweet Olive Hairpieces

Sweet Olive Hairpieces is devoted to designing hairpieces that are beautiful AND functional for every hair type! We have a hairpiece for women with long or short hair, thick or thin hair, lots of hair, or no hair at all. Every hairpiece, from the hair pins to the headband vine, is made to address common issues with women's real hair types, because not only women with long, flowing locks should be able to wear beautiful hair accessories. Once I design a piece to be well-suited for a specific hair type, I use simple wire-wrapping techniques to weave freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals, and stamped metal leaf charms into the design. I am a botanist by trade, so many of my designs are loosely based on flowers and plant vines.

About Me... Hi, I'm Eden!

By day, I am a Biology Professor at Ole Miss. But let's back up a bit. 

In October 2017, I was in the trenches planning my wedding. One day I was scrolling through Etsy, searching for a bridal hairpiece, when I decided I would try to make my own. It was horrible! Truly. I showed my first comb to my sister, who said, "Yeah, I would pay $0 for that." Naturally being a stubborn human, I kept at it, determined to make my own bridal hairpiece. 

Sweet Olive Hairpieces was born from that stubbornness, and I couldn't be more happy and proud of how far it has come. Since the wedding, Sweet Olive Hairpieces has really grown to encompass not only sophisticated bridal hairpieces, but also everyday hair vines, pins, clips, and combs. So, cheers! I welcome you into my life and to this creative passion of mine. I am so happy you are here.
