When I was a teenager, I thought hair scrunchies were a girl’s best friend. I had one in every color, to match every outfit. There were even some special ones that friends made in the sunflower floral prints they knew I loved. I had the scrunchie bun perfected. And I wore my scrunchies until they wore out from too many washings and wearings.
I still wear scrunchies to bed once in awhile. And though they make newer, more fashionable scrunchie styles these days, I always feel a bit like I’m going back to the era of stirrup stretch pants when I put a scrunchie in my hair. Which is why I was delighted to find a more stylish and classic alternative that makes the most elegant updo ever: the Lilla Rose Flexi Hair Clip.
I eyed them on a friend’s blog and Instagram feed for over a year, thinking that if ever I grew my hair out I’d have to try one out. And when I did, I wondered why I’d waited until I grew out my hair. I wear my Flexi Clips every day. There’s always one in my purse for emergencies. They are just as easy to use as claw clips or scrunchies, and one hundred percent more gorgeous. I would have grown out my hair sooner if I had known this no-headache bun solution existed.
I started out with a medium Flexi Clip. It holds an updo up nicely, or a half-up style perfectly. But as my hair grew longer, I decided to try a size large. It is perfect for holding all my hair in a massive twist or bun.
I got my sister a large Flexi Clip for her birthday. Turns out her hair (that makes a pony tail many inches in circumference!) needs an extra large size Flexi Clip, but my mom was glad to claim the large.
For Christmas, I decided to get my girls hair clips “just like mommy’s”. My five-year-old daughter has smooth and gently wavy hair that comes just past her shoulders. I got the extra small size for her and it makes an updo that looks like a twin to mine! Despite her baby-fine hair, the clip stays in amazingly well.
My three-year-old has hair that rivals Shirley Temple’s. And she hates to have anything in it that she can feel or that seems to pull her curls. The mini Flexi Clip gives some control to her curls in a way that doesn’t bother her at all.
Thanks to the Flexi Clip, we have the perfect hairdo for those rushed Sunday mornings when there’s no time to wash or braid hair. It’s an easy fix for a bad hair day. And an elegant alternative to the scrunchie. The Flexi Hair Clip is definitely a girl’s best friend.
