Lilla Rose Flexi Clip Review and Giveaway

flexiclip-straight hair

I’ve seen a number of Lilla Rose Flexi Clips highlighted on other blogs, and I’d been curious as to what made them special and what the benefit of being flexible was.

So I was happy when Elizabeth from Lilla Rose decided to become a sponsor of AOC and then sent me a Flexi Clip to try out and tell you guys about it.

You know what? I discovered that while they are literally flexible (as in, bendable), they are also flexible in the types of hair they work with.

I tried the clip at home where it was easy to play with and see how it worked with my hair, but then I took it along on our recent camping trip. You know – after you’ve spent a night and you’ve gotta do something with your hair without electricity, so it’s gotta be easy.

As you can see from the first photo collage, my hair is straight and I twisted it up and used the Flexi Clip to hold the twist while my son took the pictures. It was really easy to use and it looks pretty good for camping, doesn’t it?

I’m thinking way better than the haphazard pony-tail that I usually resort to.

So I found because the clips are bendable, they adjust to work with different styles pretty easily – but what about different hair types?

Some of you long time readers may remember that my daughter had hair similar to mine until she reached her teens. Now it’s thick and curly – pretty much the opposite of mine (thanks, Brian – as if our kids didn’t look enough like you…).

I had chosen a clip size that I hoped would work for both of us – but would it really be that flexible?

Wow. I had thought it would hold part of her hair like the photo on the left, and maybe all her hair in a pony-tail…but all of her hair in a thick twist? It did a great job, actually – and was comfortable according to my daughter. I asked if it felt secure and she replied,

“Yes. I mean, unless I were going to be doing some head-banging or something.”

Yeah, well. No head-banging, then.

Overall, I was really impressed with the quality of the clip and how many different ways you can use them. The clip I chose was actually a small clip, so they really are great for hair even thicker than my daughter’s as well as straight hair like mine.

And – Elizabeth, from Lilla Rose, is giving away a Flexi Clip to one lucky winner so you can try it out and see how truly flexible the clip is!

    Loved your post and review on the Lilla Rose Flexi Clip. You and I have similar sounding long, fine hair and it is not easy finding a pretty hair clip that will hold this type of mane! Thanks, PW

    These look awesome! I have baby fine hair – but LOTS of it. So many clips slip right out of my hair, but these look like they would stay. And I really like how versatile they look. :-) Thanks!

    I would love to have an extra large clip so I could put my long wavy, course hair into a french twist! No other clip has ever met the challenge for that do on my hair, so I would love to try the Lilla Rose Flexi Clip :)

    That is so pretty! I’d never heard of these clips before. I have thick, wavy hair and I have trouble getting it to stay in clips. Looking at the video, I think a medium would work.

  5.  Tanner says

    Not sure. My hair can be mighty straight, but it is very thick. Perhaps a medium? I would like a large one someday for more complicated buns, since I do have a lot of hair.

    I’m wearing a flexi-clip right now! We have two, a small and a medium. I wish there was an in-between size because the small won’t fit around my hair and the medium doesn’t hold it quite as tight as I’d like. I still love them, though.

    I was showing mine to my step-mom last week. If I won, I’d choose a large to give to her.

  7.  says

    I’ve got medium-long hair. A medium holds it in a twist or bun and a small makes a good ponytail. :-) My little girl has minis. We’re a Flexi-family!

    I SO WANT TO TRY ONE OF THESE! And I have part straight, part wavy and even a bit curly in the right humidity hair. While getting ready to cut my hair I’ve had stylists make comments like “Wow, this is really different” or “You’ve got an interesting combination” and fun things like that. And now that I’m going grey and keep stressing my hair out by having baby after baby it just doesn’t know what it wants to do. I’m thinking I might like this more than the pony tail I seem to always wear these days. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I love this! I have super curly super thick hair, and I’m excited to try one of these. I’ve been having trouble finding clips for my hair lately, so I’m going to look her up.

  10.  says

    My hair is “slicky.” It slides and falls because although it is very thick, it is very fine. It’s very hard to put “up.” In fact, I can’t do it unless it’s with a very, very tight band or barrette.

  11.  Carmela says

    I have a lot of hair, so I’m thinking the large will work for updos. It is hard to find anything big enough to hold it all up.

  12.  Krista says

    This looks really nice. I would get it for my daughter as my hair is too short. She has long fine hair so a small would be right
