New Hair Clip, Anyone? {A Flexi-Clip Review and Giveaway}

When I first started seeing Lilla Rose Flexi-Clips popping up on different blogs about a year or so ago, I’ve got to be 100% honest with you…I didn’t want one! I didn’t think I really would use it, and I was perfectly happy with just my regular old pony tail holders.

So when Sue Ellen contacted me a few months ago about reviewing a Flexi-Clip for her, I thought, “Sure, why not?”.  But I didn’t have high hope that I would exactly fall in love with the thing. ;)

Fast forward several months, and I’ve done exactly that…I’ve fallen in love with it!

This is the clip I chose. It's called "Simple Band"

Why I Didn’t Think I Would Like the Flexi-Clip

  • I thought it was just a glorified barrette.
  • I thought it would sit in my drawer never to be used.
  • I didn’t think they were my style.
  • I thought they would be hard to use.
  • Why do I need one, when I have several pony tail holders that do the job just fine?
  • I thought they looked uncomfortable.

But wow, was I proved wrong…

Why I DO Indeed Like the Flexi-Clip

  • You can do SO many different hairstyles with this one simple clip.
  • I find myself using it ALL the time!
  • After looking through the online catalog, I realized that they actually have several clips that are just my style.  They really are beautiful!
  • They are so easy to use.  For real.  If I can use them effortlessly, than anyone can!
  • They make a simple “pony-tail” look so pretty!
  • They’re actually more comfortable that a pony tail holder.  They really do “flex” around you’re hair and don’t pull or pinch at all.  I find myself wearing mine even on days when I’m just cleaning and working around the house because it is SO comfortable to wear.

My hair in my beloved Flexi-Clip. (By the way, it's not the easiest thing to take a picture of the back of your own head! Haha! Try it sometime!)

So, all that to say that I would recommend Flexi-Clips to anyone.  Even if you don’t think that it’s you’re thing, I bet that you will be surprised how much you end up using it and loving it!  I wear mine all the time and can’t wait to purchase some more!
