I am not a girly-girl. My husband, however, happens to like girls, so I humor him by wearing my hair long—really longer than is practical for a housewife with a lot of messy jobs and small children pulling it all the time.
Since I lack the patience to spend very much time fiddling with my hair, it’s a ponytail or nothing if I want my hair out of the way. I don’t even have the patience to make a nice braid. But I do like pretty things, regardless of my inability to figure out how to use them, so I have a bag full of clips and sticks and things for my hair that I’ve collected over the years, hoping to someday get it right.
Enter the Lilla Rose flexi-clip:
That took less than ten seconds to do. Try not to mind the uneven hair color or the fact that it’s just a little bit crooked. Just focus on the fact that I finally have a hair clip that goes in my hair, stays in my hair, and looks pretty, even after just 10 seconds of actual work. This hair clip was built for impatient women! Hooray! Imagine how pretty it could be if I spent thirty whole seconds on it!
I received the Scrollwork Stoneset in Wood flexi-clip in medium. The flexi-clip has a unique one-piece design that makes it easy to use, and hard to lose—which is important when you lose things as often as I do. Sizing can be tricky, but if you find you’ve ordered the wrong thing, Lilla Rose will let you exchange it for the right size, so ordering is risk-free. Add to that the fact that they’re both durable and inexpensive, and you can see why I’m crazy about this clip.
There are sizing and styling videos to help the clueless (that would be me) figure out how to order and use the clips. I particularly like the drop bun style, along with whatever that is that I’ve got on my head in the picture. I don’t think there’s a video for that, but it’s super easy to accomplish, or I wouldn’t be doing it.
Win: Of course, I wouldn’t be showing you my own clip if I didn’t want you to have one, too! That would be mean. Gail Harris (aka The Imperfect Housewife), the Lilla Rose consultant who sent me my flexi-clip, would like to send one of you a clip of your own, valued at up to $15.
Buy one!: If you don’t have the patience to wait and see if you won, you can buy Lilla Rose flexi-clips online. I’m sure I’ll be buying more in the near future. I LOVE this clip!
