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?

  19. i love the look of these, but have a hard time imagining that they would actually hold my hair. I’d love to try one. It was hard choosing a favorite! I decided on the silver multi-colored cluster.

  20. These are so functional and lovely! I would love to wear the Simple Band of Gold.

  21. The medium flexi clip eternity/infinity–because I like things simple and my hair tends to knot around complex hair thingies.

  22. I like the Metallic Edged Butterfly flexi-clip. They are so neat!

  23. I would get the Silver Etched Lily Flexi-clip!

  24. I “Liked” Flex Clips on Facebook!

  25. I’ve had my eye on the Freestyle Princess Tiara and the Freestyle Headband for forever!!! 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!

  26. I just found your blog, I really like it! I saw the Lila Rose Flexiclips–I love the Roman Cross one. Its so pretty. Thanks for a chance to win. 🙂

  27. I love this recommendation! Great to know there’s something out there that’s both pretty and can replace those awful plastic claws that I wear when my hair is a certain length. I was trying to think which one I could wear every day, and I like the
    2-1813 Celtic Knot Brown

    though there are so many lovely ones that it would be fun to have for church and dressing up!

  28. I would love one of these clips! I like the Etched Lily, I think the lily in the center adds a nice touch! Really any of these clips would be nice, they are all so pretty!

  29. Wow, the flexiclips are beautiful. I really like the cross one that they have running for the special. The brown of the cross probably is the same color as my hair. I also like the dragonfly one. Not the really big one cause I like the understated accessories myself, but the petiete dragonfly one.

  30. I am liked Lilla Rose on facebook.

    I like the Antique brass princess tiara clip the best!! Very pretty! But, I really like the badge holders the best!

  45. I am a loyal subscriber to your blog… I have subscribed for years. I think shortly after little Perry was born.

  46. I love the Flower Blossom Medley! So delicate and pretty… unlike the bun sticks that I made out of chopsticks…. To have something pretty to hold up my bun with that doesn’t stab things if I get my head too close would be ever so nice….

  47. I’m now following LillaRoseClips on twitter, where I’m 1Lora.

  48. I’m a long-time subscriber/fan.

  49. I’d choose the Flexi-Large Silver Simple Band. Thank you for writing about the Flexi-Clips just as the weather for needing to put long hair up is starting!

  50. They are so beautiful!! I looked at all of her products and It is so hard to choose a favorite! But I love all of her clips:)

Don't just think it: say it!
