About Headmistress

Headmistress was born in 2009 when founder Jillian Wood began selling hand-crafted accessories at a market on Brick Lane in East London. After close to a year of sold-out Sundays, Jill started to feel the pull of her home and native land and decided to move home and set up shop in Toronto. Since then the Headmistress empire has evolved immensely, but her fundamental passion for beautiful, handmade accessories endures.

At Headmistress, we aren't just making headbands, we're making headlines - we've been featured by Flare Magazine, MTV Canada, Fashion Magazine, The Globe and Mail, Loulou Magazine, Elle Canada, CBC Radio and The National Post.


We're stocked at independent boutiques and large retailers alike across North America - we count Anthropologie US & UK, Indigo/Chapters and the National Gallery UK as recent stockists and are always looking to grow our retail family.
