I’ve been thinking a lot about femininity.
There’s something about swirly skirts, soft fabrics and pretty accessories that make the girly girl in me feel like a lady. I’ve been talking about it with my friends and I’ve been thinking about it a lot – feeling feminine and womanly is nice.
Why the Lilla Rose Clips?
Most days find me in my comfy pants and oversized tshirts with my messy bun or my ponytail. I’m sure that my husband doesn’t mind (because let’s face it, he will still find me attractive in oversized tshirts and comfy pants.) The problem I’ve been thinking about, though, is how I don’t feel attractive in my normal daily wear. So I’ve been slowly weeding certain things out of my wardrobe and replacing them. I’ve been trying not to steal my husband’s tshirts. And now with my new Lilla Rose Flexi Clip, I’ve got a very easy way to keep my hair out of my face for housework that makes me feel pretty and attractive.
Using the Lilla Rose Clips
The Lilla Rose Flexi Clip is a one piece, durable metal clip that can be used for ponytails, twists, buns and updos. The figure-eight flexible clip has an attached, curved, notched “stick” which you can thread through your hair and through the figure-eight to secure your hair in a number of ways. I’ve had fun playing with hair styles with my new Lilla Rose clip for the past couple of weeks. I’ve worn it to church the past two Sundays, out and about on errands, and around the house. I’ve used it for a ponytail, a messy updo, a bun and a really fancy updo that made me feel especially lovely. There was a little bit of a learning curve, learning how to hold it while trying to fasten it, but once you get the hang of it you can do it without looking in a mirror. One clip, so many possibilities.
Because it’s easier to take pictures of my daughters’ hair, let me show you a few different things you can do with two different types and lengths of hair.
My thirteen year old has medium length, very thick and wavy hair with lots of layers. She had brushed it out after her shower so that it would dry a little less wavy. Because of the thickness, the medium clip fits in her hair fairly well, but because of the layers some of the styles might require a few bobby pins. Here I’ve used my medium Lilla Rose FlexiClip to give her an elegant french twist style updo. Next, I pulled only half of her hair back in a very simple style.
My ten year old has very long but slick, thin hair. Her hair is normally very straight but she had it up in a bun so here it has a bit of a wave. Because her hair is longer I’m able to use my medium sized Flexiclip in her hair also. For the updo I parted her hair and braided each half before twisting the two braids and clipping it. The braids add more interest but they also help the clip stay in her slick hair. For the second one, possibly my favorite, I twisted it up in a bun– and since I couldn’t get the medium Flexiclip over the whole bun, I simply clipped it through the middle of the bun, just catching the inside edges of the outside circle so that it would all stay put.

Finding Your Size and Style
The Lilla Rose clips come in several different sizes. Finding the right size can be a bit tricky. Actually, you might need a few different sizes so you can do different things with them. A smaller size will let you pull back part of your hair or wear it in a ponytail. A larger size will let you twist up all of your hair and clip over the whole thing. I chose a medium clip, which allows me to do many things with my thicky curly hair, but I also need a large if I want to do a french twist.

You’ll also notice that there are dozens of styles for the Lilla Rose clips. Choosing just one was hard! In the end I decided to go with something simple and feminine that would go with pretty much anything. Whether you prefer gold, silver, fancy or simple, you can find something that you like.
