This Year’s “It” Holiday Accessory (Win!)

November 14, 2021

Just in time for hot holiday hair, inclusive style expert Meredith Shaw, in partnership with Femme Faire, is back with MEREband 2021—a luxe twist on the traditional hair band, that will elevate your festive ‘fits! After their sold-out success in 2020, Meredith knew this local partnership had blossomed into a limited-edition holiday tradition.

“Never did I ever think I would get to create my very own headband, let alone ANOTHER one,” says Meredith. “The MEREband is now officially a holiday tradition, and I could not be more excited to work with Femme Faire again on a collaboration that is as ethical as it is beautiful. Sparkle is my favourite colour and I cannot wait to see everyone SHINE this holiday season with MEREband!”

This year, in an effort to continue spreading joy beyond the holiday season, Meredith will be donating a portion of all sales from the MEREband 2021 to Girls Inc., a national organization encouraging young women of all backgrounds to be strong smart and bold. Meredith has been a 10-year advocate of the organization and could not be more excited to send some well-deserved sparkle their way.

As for the band, of Wednesday, November 17, you can officially purchase one for $45, along with mini MEREband Bow Barrettes for $16, exclusively online. —Noa Nichol

    I would style my hair with loose waves and put my MEREband on but leave a few pieces in front of the band to make the look so elegant to complement the ever so sophisticated MEREband. I hope I win! I am a big fan!

    Since my hair is shorter, I would style it in a very simple pulled back, casual look.
