Lilla Rose Hairclips Review

I LOVE the Lilla Rose Hairclips and would love to share with you about them today!  The clip I got is a size medium, and I was able to use it for the following styles:

Are you looking for some beautiful new ways to do your hair?  They have numerous styles of clips and lots of different sizes as well.

Visit this page to see all the different types and to watch some videos about how to do the styles.

 See below for another style of clip I have (in size small).  I love how the clip is all in one piece and because it’s bendable, it really holds the hair well!

Here is how the Lilla Rose clip works, and why it will work for your hair–no matter how baby fine or thick your hair is!

It’s all in one piece, so you won’t lose the pin part of it.

Review of Lilla Rose Flexi Hair Clip

Lilla Rose Hair Clip
Last year I was first introduced to Lilla Rose–they have beautiful hair clips!  I had a feeling that if I tried one, I’d love it.  Well, last week I got one to try and have worn it every day since!  I definitely do love it!  And we have a giveaway–so read through to the end of the post!
Kristen Smith is my new Lilla Rose consultant.  If you don’t already have your own consultant, please Like her Facebook pageFollow her on Twitter, subscribe to her monthly newsletter (learn about the Flexi of the Month, new releases, tips and hairstyles, and contests for discounts, too! :), and visit her website.

What’s really great about the flexi clips is that they have some stretch to them.  They bend around your hair.  That’s what helps them to stay in so well, even in my daughter’s very fine hair.
There are 7 different sizes of flexi hair clips, and if you need help choosing the right size, see the sizing and styling video here.  By the way, mine is a Small.  My daughters would need size extra-small to do the half up hairstyle, but small works for the french twist style.  And I would need a medium to do a ponytail or full twist (that’s my next choice!).
In addition to flexi clips, Lilla Rose also has beautiful bobby pins, hair sticks, you-pins, O-rings, and hair bands.

Lots of homeschool families are looking for ways to boost their family income while still staying home, and Lilla Rose can be a great way to do that!  They have a very affordable start-up option, and there are no minimum sales requirements. Contact Kristen to learn more (smithspirations at gmail dot com).
Kristen can also do online parties for any readers who might like to share Lilla Rose with their friends.  I plan to have an online party later this summer, but if you’d like to do one yourself, let her know!
