Tichini Arnold and the celebrities who love her scarves.
Don’t throw out that Bedazzler! The latest sparkle spot is ordinary bandannas and scarves. Actress Tichina Arnold (Martin, Big Momma’s House) started designing crystal-embellished wraps about two years ago to wear as cover-ups on bad hair days. (”I hate doing my hair, but I love looking good,” says Arnold.) But when her celeb friends, including Jada Pinkett Smith, Vivica A. Fox, and Tisha Campbell, saw them, they demanded their own glittering kerchiefs — and China Moon Rags was born. Today, Arnold’s bandannas and scarves, which showcase everything from Swarovski crystals to silver studs, adorn the high-stylin’ heads of Justin Timberlake, Janet Jackson, Lil’ Bow Wow, and Missy Elliott. China Moon Rags are available at Shikiri in Beverly Hills and at Arnold’s online boutique (chinamoonrags.com) and range in price from $25 to $350. Razzle dazzle.
