Review and giveaway: Flexi Hair Clip from Lilla Rose

*Disclosure: I received this product to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.

I have challenging hair.  My mom tells stories about the fact that I was bald until I was 2.  She used to tape bows to my head since I lacked hair to clip them in.  Things didn't improve much once I grew hair, as my hair came in very fine and with a determination to never allow a hair clip to remain in place for long. My daughter has inherited this from me and we spend most of our spare time hunting for the hair clips that were in her hair minutes before, but that have now slid right out. It's fun.

All this to say that, when I heard from a Lilla Rose consultant and was offered the chance to review one of their beautiful Flexi hair clips, I was extremely skeptical that I would be able to keep the hair clip in my hair. Especially when I saw that these were not wimpy little clips- they were seriously solid ones with lots of pretty decorations!

My first step was to head to the sizing guide page to pick the right size for my hair. This is one of the secrets behind the Flexis- they aren't one-size-fits-all, so you can choose something that's just right for your particular hair needs.  Then I went through the list of pretty Flexis in the size I wanted and chose this one:


When my Flexi arrived, I thought it was even prettier than it looked in the picture and that it was very well-made.  I brushed my hair and then fastened the Flexi in back- and it stayed put! And not just for a minute or two, but for several hours! I never had to readjust it or re-do my hairstyle. It just stayed where I had placed it! This never, ever happens to me, so I was really in shock.

These hair clips are beautiful and functional and I really am happy to have finally discovered something that works in my hair. Lilla Rose offers lots of other beautiful accessories as well, including hair sticks, hair bands and bobby pins, to name a few.

I have great news! One of you will win your choice of a Lilla Rose product (up to $16). Open to US mailing addresses, must be new to Lilla Rose (not a previous customer or LR giveaway winner). Enter at the Rafflecopter widget below.
