After you check out my review of the gorgeous products available from Lilla Rose and enter my giveaway, make sure to hop on over to all the other great blogs for more chances to win some great prizes!
Lilla Rose is a company that offers beautiful and functional hair jewelry. They started with the Flexi Clip (which is similar to a regular hair clip but with some major improvements) and now also offer hair accessories like Hair Sticks, the Flexi Oh!, Hairbands, You-Pins, and Bobby Pins.
When Jayme, a Lilla Rose independent consultant, contacted me about doing a review and giveaway, the most difficult decision I had to make was picking out just one Flexi Clip to try! If you haven’t seen all the beautiful designs they have, you’re missing out. From simple to stunning, there are designs to meet every style and personality.
I finally decided to try out the “Tidepool Treasures” Flexi Clip in the Extra Small size. (On a side note, I can’t remember the last time I ordered something for myself in a size extra small – in fact, I don’t think it’s ever happened before!)
The design is beautiful, and I’ve always loved the Starfish Story. (That’s the one about the little boy who’s walking along the beach, where hundreds of starfish have been washed ashore by the tide. He’s picking up the starfish, one at a time, and returning them to the water. And old man tells the little boy that it’s pointless, there are just too many starfish to save them all – his rescue efforts don’t matter. The little boy, returning another starfish to the water, responds with “It mattered to that one.”)
I have long hair, but it’s very fine and slippery. With a lot of hair accessories, they’ll end up sliding right out of my hair. Sometimes they’ll stay put for an hour or two, sometimes they’re falling out before I even get out of the bathroom. I usually end up resorting to scrunchies or plastic claw-style clips (and even those slide out unless I wrap my hair into a bun).
What’s great about the Lilla Rose Flexi Clip… wait, let me start over. There are a lot of great things about the Flexi Clip. First, they come in multiple sizes. If you have a lot of thick, coarse hair, you can get the design you like in a large size. If you have thin, fine hair, you can buy a smaller size. For me, the extra small size works for most hairstyles I like – the “half up” or a ponytail – and going up one size to a small would probably cover any bulkier styles (like a twist).
The second great thing about this clip that I want to share is that it DOESN’T FALL OUT! Even with styles that require smaller amounts of hair to be inside the clip, it stays put, which is awesome. The top of the Flexi Clip is, as you may have guessed, flexible. It has a little give to it. The pin that goes through the clip is attached to the clip itself (great thing #3, as I’ve lost those little pins more times than I can tell you). The pin also has notches on the end (great thing #4) that line up with a little bar at the end of the clip to help secure the clip in place no matter how much (or how little) hair you’re holding. Between the flexible clip and the notched pin, I can even shake my head around and the clip doesn’t slip the slightest bit, even in a half up style.
The final great thing about the Flexi Clip that I want to mention is the absolutely stunning designs. There are so many to choose from! I’ll share a few of my favorite designs here, but you really need to check out Jayme’s website to see them all.
