You all know how much I LOVE putting my toppers up–isn’t that the beauty of wearing a topper over a wig, after all (you know, you CAN wear a wig up, too…but that’s for another post!)? I’ve talked about this so many times–in the hot South, nothing is better than putting my topper up into an updo.
I was speaking to one of my readers (and blogger friend – she blogs over at Prairie Dust Trail), Dawnita, and she suggested trying out a Lilla Rose Flexi Hair Clip. I was telling her that nothing is worse than when you are wearing your hair up, and you feel the clips pulling.
The last thing you want to do is cause additional loss, right?
Dawnita was kind enough to send me a gorgeous hair clip to try (similar to the one you see directly below), in a size Small. Lilla Rose hair clips come in a few different sizes to accommodate the thinnest, slipperiest of hair (hello, old bio hair!) to the thickest, most enviable hair. Based on my bio hair and topper hair, she felt the Small would be the perfect size for me, and she was right! I love it so much that I wanted to tell you all about it…and, best of all, I have one for you, too.
It’s a pretty nifty little all-in-one hair clip. See the “stick part”? It’s actually attached to the clip on the side. You open it up, slide your hair in, then secure it on the other side. It has just the tiniest bit of give to keep your pony secure. Easy peasy.
You guys…this clip is SO comfortable. Way more comfortable than a normal elastic pony. No pulling whatsoever!
How pretty is it, too?!
(You’ll actually note that the stick should be pushed in, further. It still holds just fine, which is why I didn’t notice. My husband took the pictures and this is something his male brain would never pick up on.)
I got not one, but TWO compliments while I was out grocery shopping. One was actually from a man. This was kind of odd, I’ll admit.
While I love the look of a traditional pony tail, my all-time favorite look is when I wear it in a messy up-do.
My claw clips are great. They really are. But I love how this Lilla Rose hair clip looks a bit more polished. More put together. More oh la la.
There is one thing that I absolutely *adore* about this hair clip, and I bet it’s something you might not think about.
Can you tell what it is, from the pic below?
When I wear my claw clips, inevitably, the darn things slip throughout the day. I am constantly readjusting them. That just comes with the territory since the claw clips are almost TOO flexible, and I’ve accepted that. What I hate, though, is that the bottom part of my hair (closest to my nape) eventually droops down and starts to look SO messy.
Do you guys know what I am talking about?
That bottom hair stays securely UP into my little updo here…all day. ALL DAY. This is huge, people.
