Usually it takes forever to get my hair just right in an up do, so I hate it when the silly clips or bobby pins I use fall out and within 20 minutes my entire morning of primping my hair has gone to waste! Or I can use the claw clips, but they usually have to be in very tight and after a few hours I start to get headaches. Why can't I just have a clip that will hold my hair in place, not fall out, and still look nice? I thought it was a hopeless battle until I tried my very first Lilla Rose Flexi clip.
Lilla Rose Flexi clip offers elegance and functionality.
Lilla Rose is a company that produces functional, unique hair and jewelry accessories. When I say unique, I really mean unique as I've never seen or used anything quite like them before.
"Lilla Rose offers the opportunity to share unique, functional innovative products anchored by our patented Flexi Clip. We create entrepreneurial possibilities for women and men by offering fair profit margins while compensating those that desire building a much larger organization. In either case, the Lilla Rose Opportunity has given our representatives the framework to operate and run their own business."
The flexi Clip is quite a brilliant invention. It allows you to clip your hair into place and it actually stays put! They come in a very large variety of styles and levels of elegance. It took me forever to decide just which one I wanted to try because I just kept seeing new ones that made me say
"I want THAT one!"
"That's GORGEOUS! I need it!"
Yes, they are that amazing. In fact if I could I would buy almost all of them. They are quite stunning, and they look amazing in all the variety of hair styles. I finally decided on the Princess Tiara Dangle, as I love jewelry and accessories that sparkle and dangle.
How the Lilla Rose Flexi clip actually works
Just by looking at the Lilla Rose Flexi clips, you are probably thinking, "Yes, it's beautiful but that little thing won't hold my hair!" Maybe you have extra thick hair and it's hard to get anything to actually hold all of your hair. Or maybe your hair is super thin and silky and nothing stays in your hair longer than 10 minutes before it slides right out. Will the Flexi clip still work? The great news is YES!
There are many different sizes of the Lilla Rose Flexi clip. Depending on the type of hair you have and your thickness will determine which size of the Lilla rose Flexi clip you would want to order. They have even made it simple to know just which size is right for you with a Sizing video that explains it all. And don't worry too much, if you order the wrong size, Lilla Rose will gladly exchange the flexi for free within 90 days.
When my Flexi clip arrived my first thought was "Now how in the world does that go into my hair and how does it stay closed?" Because you see, there are no clasps, springs, clips, or anything else that secures the clip into place. The brilliance is in the design and shape of the Flexi clip! It has the decorative top, with a single prong that is attached at one end. It slides out of the opposite loop to open. You then weave the prong through your hair and then slide it back into the loop of the Flexi Clip.
How does it actually stay closed? I haven't a clue. I only know that it does. It does however have a few slight indentations at the end of the prong as you can see in the photo above. But those notches don't perfectly snap on the loop. I do, however, think they definitely play an important role in providing resistance and keeping the flexi clip securely closed.
The Many Ways to wear a Lilla Rose Flexi Clip
Just as there are many different styles of the flexi clip, there are almost just as many ways you can wear your Lilla Rose Flexi clip! The easiest one I found to do for a beginner is a very simple Pony tail. When my hair is straight, it is very smooth. Thankfully it's no longer as thin as it used to be, but because of how smooth it is, it is still a struggle to get hair ties to stay in my hair. They are always sliding down and I have to tighten my pony tail or just take it out and start all over. But that wasn't the case. I was quite surprised that I put in the Flexi Clip and my hair was done for the entire day! I never had to "tighten" my pony tail, it never slid down and my hair never fell out! I was seriously surprised. I didn't think I would have that good of results with the flexi clip.
And just look how a simple flexi clip can change a normal boring pony tail into something quite fashionable!
On Saturday I had a conundrum. I had curled my hair the night before for a date with the Husband. I woke up late Saturday morning and didn't have time to wash my hair and restyle it before I was suppose to be to a baby shower. My hair still had a little curl in it, so I utilized the Flexi Clip for a quick up do. And thankfully it totally pulled off a fresh, and fashionable look! In fact I got quite a lot of comments on how cute my hair was, and "where in the world did I get that gorgeous hair clip!"
The Flexi clip never slipped out, never loosened it's grip on my hair and it stayed put all day long. Actually these photos were taken in the afternoon after I had already worn the hair style for quite a few hours. Doesn't it look like I had just done my hair? None of my hair fell out of this style and I loved every minute of it. And like I said, I got a lot of compliments on this beautiful clip.
Normally with this type of hair style I either have to use almost an entire sheet of bobby pins or a claw clip. The claw clip definitely doesn't look as cute, although it is fast. But it still gives me headaches after a few hours. The bobby pins take FOREVER to put in, they often fall out and within a few hours my hair is a mess again. So I would definitely say the Flexi clip has won hands down for me.
As I said before there are so many more ways you can style your hair with the flexi clip! The next one I'm going to try is the French Twist style shown below.
