Giveaway: Lilla Rose Flexi Clips

This giveaway has ended.

I love, love, love Flexi Clips!  I saw them all over the web last fall and was delighted when I received an invitation from Jennifer to host a giveaway.

We have 3 Flexi Clips of our own now, and I didn’t shed a single tear when my last big plastic jaw clip broke.

I wore those plastic jaws nearly every day for the last several years, but I never truly loved them.  They were the best I could find, but they still didn’t hold well unless my hair was damp.  They stuck out behind my head.  They broke regularly under daily use.  And they looked a little utilitarian.  I really wanted something pretty for my hair, but couldn’t find something that would hold enough hair to keep it all up and off my neck on long, hot summer days.

After watching the sizing and styling videos, I ordered my clips in Small and Medium, even though I have fairly long thick hair.  They turned out to be perfect, and with very little practice I was able to put up my hair in a variety of styles that take less than 30 seconds to create but stay put all day long!  Of course they’re so fun and easy I want to take my hair down just to fiddle with the clips and switch to a new style, but I can hardly fault them for that…

I love the versatility: Extra Small is perfect for my younger girls with fine hair, and my Medium still works for my older daughters who have thick, luxuriant tresses twice as thick as mine.  Smaller sizes work well for thick hair when you don’t want to pull it all up.

They are comfortable, too.  No pinching, pulling or pressure spots like I got from The Claw.  My hair feels nearly weightless since it tends to fit much more smoothly my head, if that makes sense.  No big heavy bun waving around behind me, bumping into things.  Maybe you’ve never had that happen?  Bun, I said.  Bun. Forget I said it.

I was afraid at first that I would have to jealously guard these to keep the children from losing the pin, but guess what?  These must have been designed by a mom.  The pin is attached to the clip.  No separate pieces to lose!  I am in love.

All that and beautiful too.  What’s not to love?  I want more Flexi Clips!  Don’t you?
