About AccordingToAlana

Sales 204
On Etsy since 2014

Welcome to the world according to Alana... a world full of bright and happy fashion accessories!

Hello, my name is Alana. “According to Alana” is run by me from my sewing and craft studio in Sydney, Australia. All items are designed and handmade by me with lots of thought and love.

Colour and creating has filled my world since I was a child. My mother encouraged me to paint and I would spend all my time drawing, colouring and painting. My father taught me how to make things, he could make, build and fix just about anything. I developed my appreciation for vintage items from him as well; he loved 'old' things. In a world of fast fashion and clothes that are not made to last I love finding vintage pieces to add to my collection, and sometimes use those items such as fabric and buttons to create something new.

I adore co-ordinating my clothes with matching accessories; however, I had difficulty finding headbands to match in cute prints and that were made well so I decided to make them myself using new and vintage fabrics. I knew that I could not be the only one who was looking for cute #matchymatchy accessories to co-ordinate with outfits, so I began to design and create a line of individual friendly fashion accessories. Why blend in when you were born to stand out?

Through the encouragement of my creative friends, I began making matching accessories with wire headbands becoming my main focus.

I love designing something special and unique for each of my customers, items that will be cherished forever. I use careful construction and quality fabrics, this makes me happy knowing that my products will last.

As an individual I proudly support the handmade community, by purchasing goods, materials and gifts which are from other artisans.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

How to care for your According to Alana Wire Headband:

Your According to Alana wire headband has been made with lots of love and if looked after will be around for a very long time.


Always handle any handmade items with care.
Do not tie your headband in a knot as this may damage the wire lining.
You only need to give it a simple twist to style in your hair.


•Hand wash only with a gentle soap. Please do not soak or wring your headband. Lay flat to dry.

•Do not put in dryer.

•You can iron your headband with care but do not iron the wire lining.


I recommend hanging your headband over a coat hanger or fold very gently.
