Ever since I had any hair to speak of, I have loved my hair “pretties,” as the girls in my family have always called them. Flowered headbands, bejeweled bobby pins, cute barrettes…they all catch my eye. As I’ve grown older, however, my hair pretty box has shrunk, primarily because I have grown more particular in my tastes—construction-vest orange scrunchies on symmetrical sides of one’s head do not a hairstyle make. Other doodads are eliminated because they hurt my head, or because they can’t handle my mid-back length yet fine and stick-straight hair.
Several weeks ago, Mrs. Bambi Moore contacted me about the possibility of holding a giveaway for the Lilla Rose flexi-clip. She is a consultant for Lilla Rose and offered to send Mikaela and I each a clip to test and review, and then she would do a giveaway for you all. Having a hunch that you guys just might enjoy hair pretties as much as I do, I agreed!
I had heard of flexi clips before, but had never tried anything like them. When I received the clips in the mail, I first noticed how elegant and lovely they are—they definitely meet my criteria for beauty in a hair accessory!
I got the clip in extra small for a half-up style, and Mikaela chose medium for a french twist-type style. I was worried about choosing the correct size, but I measured my ponytail, followed the helpful styling video and instructions on the Lilla Rose site, and both sizes ended up being perfect!
The clips are easy to put in as well. For the half-up style, the clip stays put in my fine, slick hair quite nicely. I do like a lot of “pouf” and shape in the front for this style, and the flexi clip wouldn’t hold that pouf in place. One bobby pin was all it took to give me the desired look, and then the flexi clip worked beautifully. I will definitely be wearing this style in the future.
I loved the look of the half-up style with the flexi clip, but the medium size clip with a french twist is even more stunning! Again, for my hair I “pouf” it with a few bobby pins, then twist the rest of the hair up and secure with the clip. The style Lilla Rose calls “tails up” is one I’ve rarely been able to master with a hair claw, but I love how it looks with the flexi clip. I know I will be turning to this style a lot in the future!
Now on to the exciting part…the giveaway!
