Hello Mia Mae! Gorgeous hair accessories for girls.

by | Feb 28, 2018 | Fashion for Kids, South African Fashion, What we wear | 83 comments

When it comes to hair accessories for girls, we don’t look any further than Mia Mae. Surina is the talented and creative mama behind this cute, proudly South African kids accessory range. From delicately knitted bonnets and blankets to pretty headbands, hair clips and hair ties… Surina makes it all and you’re sure to love them as much as we do.

In 2017, after being retrenched, Surina became a mom for the 1st time. Like a lot of mompreneurs, the plan was to stay at home and be a full time mama to baby girl Li-mé. Surina loved her time with Li-mé, and although she cherished every moment, she also knew she needed something to keep her mind stimulated in a different way. Confronted with various emotions and struggling with the idea of a new 9-5, Surina couldn’t imagine leaving Li-mé – “I wanted her to be part of my journey.

Being a typical girlmom, she was always on the look out for pretty, girly accessories for Li-mé and found it frustrating seeing all the “nicer things” only available overseas.

“So, one day the Lord gave me a bright idea. Maybe I should start my own thing.”

First research needed to be done… Surina started making a few products for Li-mé and focused on people’s reactions and comments when she was wearing them. The response was overwhelmingly positive and it was decided; let’s give this a go! She would start her own range of hair accessories for girls.

“Having your own business is fun but also super stressful. I’ve grown so much over the last year and love every moment of Mia Mae.”

Always drawing inspiration from Li-mé, Surina focuses on creating and hand making the prettiest bows in an array of beautiful fabrics. Working hard to ensure top quality and a comfortable fit too. Our little Ava has been wearing her Mia Mae headbands from birth, with no complaints or headaches and Eliana and Lia are never without a Mia Mae hair accessory.

Just sad that my eldest daughter couldn’t have worn some earlier as I searched high and low to find beautiful headbands to no avail. I will definitely be ordering some for the both of them to look gorgeous when going out. Love your floral bows and blue rose cotton bow, but in all honesty every single bow is stunning. Keep up the great work
