{Giveaway!} My New Favorite Hair Accessory

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.

Want a Lilla Rose Flexi Clip for yourself? Dawnita was awesome enough to send along a size XS clip for me to giveaway! Check out this little gem:

An XS would work for me if I was wearing one of my less-dense toppers (think Jon Renau long topper or my first topper, the Amore) or if I was doing a half-pony.

Be sure to check out all the different Lilla Rose “hair pretties” Dawnita has. I’m thinking a Flexi-Oh! might be in my very near future.

Enter to win your very own Lilla Rose Flexi Hair Clip (size XS, U.S. residents, only) below! Winner will be chosen on February 4th and contacted by me through email.

I know many bloggers typically announce the winner right in the form, below. I value your anonymity given the nature of my blog, so I will not be announcing the winner here as it would display the winner’s first and last initial. I’m cool like that. 🙂 Winner will be contacted via a private email from me.

  1. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing, Lauren. I just looked at the Lilla Rose web site. There are lots of gorgeous choices. I’m definitely going to order some. I hope I can get my up-do to look as good as yours! (I also wear Milan.)

  2. How do you get your hair/topper up so nice? I try and it looks terrible on the side. I’ve been studying your pictures and just can’t figure it out. It looks beautiful on you!

  3. I want one! Been trying to figure out something better than the scrunchy. This would do nicely. I’m entering to win. Thanks for bringing these to our attention.

  4. That is a very pretty clip! Thanks for sharing. I’m sure most of us have trouble keeping our hair up.

    I have to say one of my moments entailed a freak out surrounded by the realization that all my hair twisted up would fit in those tiny, tiny, tiny jaw clips. I gave my Mom all my medium clips that day. Others in my family can put just their sides up in one of the medium clips and I have all my bio-hair in the one that fits a toddler now.

  5. It is so pretty (I love the butterfly) and hair accessories that are pretty are such a bonus for us gals dealing with hair loss. *We need fun things to help us to not feel so cheated. I may have to buy a couple of these for my daughters-in-law who have tons of long thick hair – they would love them. How sweet of you to host fun drawing!

  6. I usually wear my hair up in a bun (I can fluff the hair out or use a donut) because my ponytail is so sad looking. Sometimes I do the doubled up ponytail, but with bobby pins instead of a hair tie, because I don’t like pulling or the fact it would have to be looped 50 million times (plus it only takes 2 bobby pins and I can fudge the thickness of the pony base). Would these clips work for a top knot/doubled up pony look? I would love to find a way to dress up my everyday look!

    • Calling Dawnita! Hopefully she can chime in for you. I don’t think this particular one will work for a top knot, but there may be something from Lilla Rose that will work.

      …and I’m not hip enough (or have enough hair!) to know what a double pony is. 🙂

    • These are perfect for doubling up. I’ve done mine in all kinds of little variations. These are soooo nice & don’t pull like other clips. They also don’t break my here like so many other clips and pins. I’ve even added hair scrunchies in with them to add fullness for a cute look.

  7. Thanks so much for this great review Lauren! They look great! They do come in Mini as well and will work in very short or very fine hair. The Minis are the size I sell the most of; great for toddlers and short hair. 🙂

  8. I’ve been looking for something to hold up my thinning hair up in an updo like this! Very cute on you! I can’t even find claw clips that will hold and not start falling and pulling my hair with it.

    • Wearing it up and messy like I show will give you the best staying power, I think (that combined with a smaller clip, like the XS I am giving away). Be sure to enter using the form above if you haven’t already – just click the “check” since you’ve commented.

    • I have 4 girls and we all have different texture & thicknesses. I’ve struggled with loss myself. There are so many fun options and with 7 different sizes, there is definitely one for everyone. If I want an extra messy updo, I’ll ad a hair scrunchy in. I love the fun look of it! If you win this one and it isn’t the right size, or you need any help at all, I’d love to help you. 🙂
