Lilla Rose

Have you heard of Lilla Rose before?

I’d heard about them for awhile and seen their hair products around the internet.

But I just never thought I’d like them.

Like with other things, however, I’ve had to eat humble pie change my mind and realize that I was all wrong about these clips.

All wrong.

Read on to find out why….

Why I Thought I’d NEVER Buy a Lilla Rose Flexi-Clip

1.  Price

You know, I’m the type of woman who won’t spend more than $2.50 for a pack of 8 barrettes at Walmart (yes, I shop there very occasionally (as in — almost never).  Please don’t leave me any mean comments about it if you’re super opposed to Walmart, OK?).

So when I saw that these Lilla Rose Flexi-clips cost about $14 for just one barrette, I thought, “No way would I ever spend that.”

2.  Too “foofy”

Whenever I would look at the Lilla Rose Flexi-clips I would just think that I would never wear something that decorative in my hair – that somehow I just wouldn’t look good with it.

You know what I mean?  I’m just not that fancy of a person.  My barrettes, until now, were just the plain kind.  Like I said, $2.50 for a pack of 8.  Super Plain Jane.

I mean, Lilla Rose even had a Fourth of July Flexi-Clip.  No way would I ever wear that.

Like I said, however, I am now needing to change my tune.  

Admitting I Was Wrong

If you’ve been around my blog for awhile, you know that I am a “straight-shooter.”  I tell it like I see it, but that also means that sometimes I have to change what I’ve said, admit that I was wrong and say how my thinking has changed.

Like in the case of:

Natural Dishwasher Rinse Aid – I had to do a new post sharing how what I had told you all was a good option just maybe wasn’t that good for your dishwasher after all.

Essential Oils – How I used to think essential oils were a bunch of hooey – but found out that they most certainly are not.  Now after promoting Young Living, I am going to have to once again “Change My Tune” and do an update to Which Essential Oils Company is Best?

– Autism – I used to think that all this hype over autism was just doctors overdiagnosing.  Then — when autism hit out home, I realized how real this catastrophic condition is.  Here’s my post on Autism Healing.

Well, now, I am here to tell you that I’ve been wrong about Lilla Rose Flexi-Clips.

A number of months ago, I received a free Lilla Rose clip.  I got the Celtic Knot.  I put it in my hair and — well, I loved it.  My husband and kids did too.   I was just so surprised.  (Part of why I like it is it’s so pretty.  But my father immigrated from Ireland so that helps too :-).)

Lilla Rose Celtic Knot

The clips add just the right touch of prettiness to your hair without being overpowering.

In the morning I typically run around the house (or walk :-)) with my hair pulled all up but I never really liked it that way.  Now, when I use a Lilla Rose clip, I love how it looks.  It has a nice femininity about it without being too ornamental or cutesy.  Just right.

I loved the clip so much that I signed up as a consultant. I get a nifty discount and any income I make from sales goes towards helping this blog keep on going…..

And about that Fourth of July clip, I even think that it’s pretty cute now.  Too bad it’s not available anymore.

What I Love About Lilla Rose

1.  Simply Pretty

Like I said above.  These clips are really pretty — without being too much.  You can wear them around the home, out and about, or even to a fancy event.  They fit right in no matter what.

Seriously I’ve always been a “Plain Jane” accessory type.

I basically have:

2 pairs of earrings
– 1 barrette
– 1 purse / bag

so that I never need to think about what goes with what and I can just get out the door quickly.

The only problem with that is it just gets a little boring and I really enjoy now having something not-too-extravagant to “dress things up a little.”

These Flexi-Clips have given me a nice way to dress up without being too fancy.

2.  Durable

These clips are not going to fall apart like some of my barrettes have done.

3.  Promotes Healthy Hair

When I was using my old style barrettes and clips, I would always rip out several pieces of hair each time I took my hair down.  Now — even at one strand per day, we are talking about 365 strands of hair per year :-(.  I really don’t like losing hair.  Say goodbye to ripped out hair with the Flexi Clip.

4.  Affordable

Yes, I did think that there was no way that I would spend $14 or more on a hair clip.  But when you think about all you are getting, these clips are very affordable.  Great for yourself, presents….(and Christmas is just around the corner (well, sort of).)

5.  Stay-put-edness

These clips hold your hair.  They come in a bunch of different sizes so you can choose what size is right for your hair and the style that you hope to wear it.  I personally use an XS to put my hair partially up and either an XS or a S to put all my hair up – depending on how loose I want the style to be.

Here are some of the great ways you can wear your hair with these clips:

    I would love to have the classy oval or the Celtic knot with the brown beads!

  2. I love the Who’s who clip and the Multi-colored Stone Cluster clip.

  3. I’d like the silver celtic cross or the celtic knot.

    I, too, was wrong about Lila Rose clips and was very delighted with the garnet dangle clip I purchased earlier this year.
    I was even considering becoming a consultant/rep for them as well.
    The only thing I don’t like about them is that they are made in China. :(

  4. rachel v. says:

    2-2089 Roman Stone Lite Sapphire and 2-1447 Renaissance Cross

  5. I’d like the ‘tree of life’ or the antique ‘princess tiara.

  6. These clips are so pretty, it’s hard to choose favorites! However, I couldn’t get over the Celtic Knot and Simple Dangle Jet clips. :)

  7. I would love the 2-0999 Festive Poinsettia, just in time for the holidays!

  8. Celena Thomas says:

    I like the Infinity motif flexi-clip and the Aurora borealis headband

  9. I like the So Many Swirls hair clip and the Petite Dragonfly bobby pin.

  10. I have one flexi-clip and love it! doesn’t pull on my hair or fall out. Would to love to have another to swap out :)

  11. I’d like the hairband and the silver and black flexi clip. I never have time to do a lot with my hair and I like what you said about simply putting it up with a Lila rose clip makes it look fancier. I like to live simply, not with many things but with those things I love. Thanks for the post and the giveaway.

  12. I would love the Flower of Hearts bobby pins and the Parade of Color head band. Beautiful stuff!
    Paula

  13. I like the Who’s Hoo? for a friend who loves owls and for myself…one of the celtic knot styles.

  14. Love the Celtic Knot & Simple Band.

  15. My daughter would love the horseshoe!

  16. I liked the large copper rose and xl celtic knot gold.

  17. Genevieve says:

    I like the Topaz and Pearls & the Divinely Framed Jewel. Your blog is very well put together. Thanks for the invite from Monday Mania!

  18. I like the celtic knot and the simple danglie.

  19. I really liked the ones shown in this article…the Roman Cross and the Simple Dangle Jet. They’re both simple yet elegant looking!

  20. Jennifer S says:

    Im interested in the orings and the clips

  21. I have one flexi-clip and LOVE it! I really adore the Who’s Hoo and the Simple Band in Black Nickel. Thank you for this opportunity!

  22. I have been wanting to try these!!
    I like the Hawaiian flower and scrollwork heart.

  23. Who’s hoo and Etched Lily with Amethyst are my two favorites, but seems the little owl is gone. :( So Roman Stone Lite Sapphire is my other second choice (both in medium, since small couldnt keep all my curly hair!)

  24. I am interested in the opportunity but the kits don’t tell you exactly what is in them. I do not intend to be selling a lot. Only when someone mentions they like the one I have on. But I do like a lot of the clips, wear clips a lot and therefore would like a collection for my personal use at a discount. So can you give me more information on what is in the particular kits, cost, how income (bonuses) works, ect. Thanks, Glenda

    • Hi Glenda. Do you mean the kits to sign up? I bought the $50 kit and you just get 6 clips in it, of different sizes. That way, you can wear some and show the different sizes to people who are interested.

      You make 30% off any personal sales and you get extra bonuses as you sell more and as any recruited consultants sell as well (provided you meet the minimum requirements, which aren’t that steep.)

      Let me know if you need more information. Happy to share!

  25. My hair is really fine and most…no, nearly all, clips, barettes, etc do NOT stay in my hair (or my daughter’s hair)….will theses work in super fine hair, or will they constantly slip and move? They are pretty, but at $15 each, I can’t afford to spend money on something neither one of us can use. thanks.

    • They will work in super fine hair. Just get the smallest size. I have also seen ladies put a pipecleaner around a mini to make it even smaller. I will put a photo of that on my Facebook page now (Lilla Rose one). Head over there and check it out. There is also a money back guarantee and shipping isn’t that much to get it back to them so you have that option as well. https://www.facebook.com/LillaRoseWholeNewMom

  26. I had problems placing an order over the weekend. It took over an hour to place the order due to a slow server, possibly due to to many using the site because of the sale and Christmas coming up? Anyway, when I finally got to the end it said an error had occurred , unable to process my request, call support dept or retry request. I went through the process again and this time it said internal server error. I tried to call the support dept, but no answer. Now my credit card shows TWO charges even though the website said neither went through. Help!

    • They are in CA. What time did you try to contact them? They are very good with customer service. I can help if need be but it will likely be quicker if you contact them.

  27. i think these clips are great and am wondering how well they do with shorter hair. I could not find any videos for shorter hair demonstrations.
    thank you

  28. Made in China , they have enough room on the clips to put their website and their patent number but leave off that vital info.

    • Hi there. I have read that the law requires them to put it on the bags that they ship the clips in so I hope that helps.

      Additionally, this is an official statement by the founder of the company that I think helps to explain their situation further.

      Thank you for your phone call. I share your concern with working conditions at factories outside of the USA and in Asia in particular. As you noted we do import from China.

      An important fact that most people aren’t aware of is that China actually has strict work rules for their workers. Employer requirements such as minimum wage, severance pay, unemployment, their version of Social Security, etc. are laws there too. The problem of skirting employee work rules generally resides with local companies. These companies occasionally operate outside of the Chinese work rules. Being “local” means they are Chinese and they are able to hide their practices much easier than a foreign corporation.

      Another way a local vendor can skirt work rules is to use a “sub factory”. When you hear about issues with companies like Nike, they hire a local factory to manufacture for them. However, unbeknownst to Nike, their local vendor with use sub factories for production. It is with these sub factories where you see the majority of workplace problems.

      We use a Korean vendor, Cho Yongsun. I have known and worked with Cho since 2006. Cho isn’t from China and holds a Korean passport. Since Cho is a foreigner, the Chinese government has much more control over his business practices. Essentially one false move and he can be kicked out of the country. His entire business enterprise down the tubes.

      Cho Yongsun doesn’t use sub factories. Every employee he uses works directly for him and he is responsible for their care as their employer. He only uses adults to assemble our products and pays them according to Chinese labor laws.

      I hope this helps you.

      Best regards,

      John DorseyFounder, Lilla Rose, Inc.

      I would be happy to answer any other questions or concerns that you might have.

  29. I’m a guy and I love lilla rose. Tired of elastic bands pulling my hair out. I have so little to spare.
    Though I would also prefer a plain style I warmed up to a few styles and wear one of them everyday.
    I liked them so much I decided to become a consultant. If anyone is interested to contact the company
    and ask for more plain or masculine styles I think it would be a good thing.
