Goody has just launched its Colour Collection, a line of hair accessories to match various shades of blond, brunette and red. FF tried the coppery claw clips, and liked how they supported an elaborate up-do without taking centre stage. So whether you’re on the hunt for a hairband, barrette, elastics or pins to match your locks, Goody can hook you up. Available at most major drugstores and beauty supply retailers for less than $5 a piece. Visit www.goody.com.
