Lilla Rose Flexi Clip {Review and Giveaway}

Mara and Megan wearing their lovely flexi clips
 A while back I was excited to receive an e-mail from Kallie, a reader of my blog who is also in independent consultant for Lilla Rose a company that sells beautiful hair things. Kallie wondered if I would like to review one of their flexi clips and then also host a giveaway here on my blog. I excitedly said "Yes!". I was familiar with how beautiful  Lilla Rose clips were but had never tried one out for myself.

I went to the web-site to see which ones I liked (pretty much all of them!) and to figure out what size I would need. I decided a small would probably work best for me at least for ponytails and half-ups. I have found I can also make it work for a tails up style but it is not big enough for something like a French roll. They have a nice guide for sizing and styling which helps you to choose which one is right for you.

Before long I received a fun little package in the mail and she sent not only one for me to try but also one for each of my girls (she had told me to send their sizes and she would see what she could do). The clips were beautiful and we were quite excited about giving them a try!

She sent us....
Plumeria Flower in size small for me. In this style I did a half up but also twisted up my hair some for a fun look. This worked beautifully- was easy to do with the flexi-clip and it stayed in great and was very comfortable.

 A Native Filigree Flexi clip in size Medium for Mara (Mara has pretty thick hair!) In the picture above I used it to fasten the bottom of a style done with rolled sides and then finished off with a fishbone braid.

and an Etched Lily with Amethyst in size extra small for Megan (my little girl who still has fine hair).


Here are some things that I truly love about these clips:
  • They are beautiful. Not only do we think so but I have received many compliments since I have been wearing mine.
  • They are sturdy. I had wondered about this but they look very well made and we have given them as heavy of a workout as we could in the time we have had them and they look just the same as when we got them. The way they are made and the two parts attached together impressed us.
  • They are easy to use. I had no trouble quickly figuring out how to put them in mine or my girls hair.
  • They are comfortable. We have worn them all day without really noticing them at all. They also do not get tangled up in your hair like pony tail holders can.
  • They are versatile. Not only can I use them instead of hair elastics, barrettes, bobby pins, or plastic combs (the one item can work in all those different instances) but they can also be used to hold your scarf in place and add decoration and more. You can see other ideas for using them on Kallie's facebook site.

Lilla Rose does sell more than flexi clips (though I believe those are there most popular product), they also have many other lovely items for the hair. I encourage you to check out their website and have fun looking at all that they offer.

Hi Abbi, What a great review! I enjoyed checking out the site & I would love to be in the giveaway to trial one of these before buying (several if they work for my hair & no headache!). I'm afraid I'm torn between 3 - "Roma Crem Antique brass", Intricately designed Motif, & the Celtic Knots. Although I also loved the scroll work heart & deepset rose! Such a selection lol

The flexi-clips are very pretty looking. I think I could be happy with about anyone of them :)
The fishtail on Mara's hair is very pretty.
I think my favorite today is the one you got the Plumeria flower or the celtic knots one.

After looking at the website it was hard to decide what I liked the most. They are all so pretty! If I had to narrow it down I would say I liked the Celtic knot, sea turtle, and dolphin designs.
