Lilla Rose Flexi Clip Review and Giveaway

One of the down sides of being a stay-at-home mom, especially during the summer, is that there is really no reason to put on make-up or do your hair in a cute style on a daily basis.  I don't have to get up early to take the kids to school, so no one sees what I look like.  I figure, as long as I run a brush through my hair, I did a good thing!  I hate to spend a lot of time getting ready and with three kiddos (one of which is an infant) it's hard to do anyway. The flat iron only touches my hair if I have a date with my husband.  This being said, I, like all women, love to feel pretty!  

The two clips I received are on top, a medium Simple Band Black Nickel and a large Divinely Framed Jewel

I was very excited when Carrie contacted me to do the review for Lilla Rose!  For the purpose of this review, I received two Flexi Clips in a medium and large size.  Honestly, I didn't expect much opening the package, because I have tried a ton of different clips and no clip is ever strong enough to hold all of my heavy, super-thick hair.  Holding it in my hand for the first time, I realized this clip is very different than most others.  It is actually made of metal and is decorated with pretty beading.  The Flexi looks very similar to a hair decoration from the 70's.  A leather band with a stick that passes through it to hold the hair.  I've tried those, they don't work for me!  The Flexi takes this concept and builds on it.  The pin is attached to the clip itself for easy, one-handed use.  Simply put the pin under the hair and slide the loop over it.  The loop catches on one of  three notches under the pin and stays securely in place.  

Upon putting the clip in my hair for the first  time, I realized I never knew what I was missing until I found it!  The Flexi Clip holds MY hair! It didn't feel loose or feel like my hair was slipping out of the clip.  My hair stays where I put it.  ALL DAY!  How amazing is that?  

I should also tell you that I have a sensitive head when it comes to hair accessories.  Molded headbands give me headaches.  Ponytail holders give me headaches.  Bobby Pins give me headaches (when I have a ton in my hair in an updo.)  The Flexi Clip does NOT give me a headache!  I have been wearing it on a daily basis for over a week now, and not once have I gotten a headache from wearing it. 

The Flexi Clip comes in 7 sizes ranging from mini to Mega and holds all types of hair, even extra long and super thick, as well as, curly or very thin hair.  The key to the amazing Flexi, however, is sizing it properly.  You can see the sizing video here, to help you decide what size Flexi Clip is right for your hair and the styles you want to wear it in.

If you have any questions about sizing , please contact Carrie through her website.  She is an amazing consultant and a wealth of knowledge!  Visit her website to watch all the amazing videos that show you the different styles in which you can wear your Flexi Clip.  My favorite style right now is the tails-up, and I am currently working on mastering the french twist.  The really great thing about this clip, is that you don't have to be great at styling your hair to use it and it is fast and easy to do!  That makes it a win in my book.  The only drawback?  Making up your mind about which design you want!
