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.
Read on to find out why….
Why I Thought I'd NEVER Buy a Lilla Rose Flexi-Clip
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 :-).)
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.
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.
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).)
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:
And here are a few more clip styles that I have my eye on.
And they have more than just clips. Check all this out:
