Jennifer Behr
Jennifer Behr introduced her namesake collection of distinctive, wearable hair accessories in Fall 2005. After majoring in sculpture and art history at Washington University in St. Louis, Jennifer honed her skills stitching custom headpieces at a tiny custom millinery shop in the suburbs of Baltimore. This lead to Jennifer designing the hair accessory collection for hairstylist Frederic Fekkai in 2001. When Fekkai discontinued his hair accessory line in Spring 2005, Jennifer’s buyer at Bergdorf Goodman encouraged her to start her own collection, promising to buy it sight unseen. The success of the core line resulted in the launch of the Bridal collection spin-off two years later.

Jennifer Behr’s collection is made by hand in her studio and within a network of small workshops in Brooklyn and Manhattan. As a result her hair accessories carry the soul of handwork, while remaining thoroughly modern in appearance.

Jennifer's designs and quality of workmanship have made her a favorite of stylists and celebrities including Amy Adams, Rachel Bilson, Lauren Conrad, Helena Christensen, Alexa Chung, Miley Cyrus, Hilary Duff, Elle Fanning, Dakota Fanning, Lady Gaga, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Paris Hilton, Jennifer Love Hewitt, January Jones, Diane Lane, Jennifer Lopez, Leighton Meister, Mary Kate Olsen, Ashley Olsen, Katy Perry, Natalie Portman, Nicole Richie, Rihanna, Rooney Mara, Keri Russell, Winona Ryder, Liv Tyler, and Oprah Winfrey.
