Lilla Rose Flexi Review



I am doing another review for the company called Lilla Rose which is a Hair Jewelry company that sells such great hair accessories!  I deal with my rep, Denise Martin and she has been such a doll to work with! 

She is one of the most easiest going sponsor's I have worked with.  And between me and my granddaughter, Brandi, we love to play with our hair. The hair style she is wearing with this Flexi, which is called Crown of Hearts, is with her hair down and just taking the sides and pulling it back and then clasping the Flexi onto that part of her hair. Brandi's hair is so red it is hard to see the colors of this beautiful flexi but it is silver with pink beads.

I did take a picture of it just sitting on the table and will show you that in just a minute.  I had done a review last week on the You Pins and now I am doing the Flexi. I did them separately because it would have been such a long review with lots of pictures so I decided to do it this way so that you can really appreciate this company better by having a diverse range of products to show you what you can do with your hair!

Now, here below you get a little better idea of what the Flexi looks like. They are all so beautiful that you really need to go to their site and check out all the different styles they have to offer.


Now, on this next picture she wanted to do a ponytail. I told her I did not think her Flexi, which is the medium, would be able to hold her hair up because it is so thick! I don't know if you can tell or not, but believe me it is thick! So, the only way we could get her hair to stay in place was to use a hair rubberband made especially for ponytails. 

I tried to get a color that would blend in but you can see it and I apologize for that but still wanted to use the picture to show you that you can use them to make ponytails but to be sure you have the right size. If we had gotten a large she would not have had to use the band.  I did not think about her wanting to use it for that purpose so I did not think ahead. Her hair is so thick she does wear it up most of the time but I thought once she saw how pretty it made her hair with it down she would love it and she did and she will wear it down some but she prefers it being up.

Now this would have worked on someone who does not have as thick of hair as hers. So, it is really important for you to pick the right size for what you want to do with it. Now, my hair is so fine that a small works for me whether I want it down or up. I pull my hair back just like she did but because my hair is thinner, I grab the hair underneath also and use it to keep the Flexi from falling.

I don't use so much that it makes it look funny in the back, just enough to give it a little firmer hold. If your hair is super fine then I would get a mini and that should do great for those who don't have enough hair in the back to grab. So, hopefully, that gives you a little idea of what I mean by the size being important.

Now here is what her hair looked like in a ponytail:

Doesn't she have the best looking hair? She always thought her red hair was ugly growing up and now she is starting to appreciate how unique her hair really is. I have always told her that her hair was beautiful but she did not believe me until now.

She has a little confidence problem so this was another reason that Denise and I wanted to do something nice for her and help her see her potential and it is starting to work. I told her we all have body image issues but for her to find her best qualities and to highlight them so that people focus on that instead of what she thinks are her worst. 

I uploaded a different angle so that you can see it a little more up close and see that this Flexi along with the band her hair is pretty tight and isn't going anywhere.

Now if you are doing something really hard like working out then you would probably want the band in there too to make sure it does not fall out.

But for casual wear like going to a movie or dinner, then you could go without the band because they do fit snug.

Remember, if you have thick hair like hers and want to wear your hair in a ponytail, then the large would have been a better choice.  This medium though works beautiful for the top picture. Denise always tells me that you need an assortment of different sizes because they will do different things.

One size in this case does not fit all the different hair styles that you may want to experiment with. But, if you have thin hair like I do, then the small will work for all hair styles.  It has worked on all the ones I have tried so far so I am not telling you something that I have not tried. So,take the plunge and get at least one for what you want to do and then experiment with the size that you ordered and see what happens.

Lilla Rose also sells some jewelry so you might want to check that out also while you are on Denise's site along with all the other hair products they carry.

You will find You-Pins, Hair Bands, Hair Sticks, Bobby Pins, O Rings and the Flexi's. The Flexi's come in mini, extra small, small, medium, large, extra large and mega!

So, whatever your hair type you will find a size that works for you or a loved one. The O Rings is something I may have to try next since Brandi is so crazy about her ponytails! Did not even think about that when I got this Flexi for her.

Man, see what happens when you don't think things through? Well, we are all human, and we all make mistakes and thru blogging, I have made a bunch! But, I learn from them so that is all that counts.

I do have a pair of the Bobby Pins that I won from another blogger and I can tell you that they are beautiful and you will be able to use them in lots of ways! I also have two Flexi's myself and every time I wear them I get alot of compliments about my hair so you will too! Take the plunge and try at least one, you won't be sorry.

Here is a list of events that Denise will be at if you live in Kentucky:

Vine Grove Autumn Daze in Vine Grove, KY on September 17th from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. at Vine Grove Optimist Park.

Radcliff Days in Radcliff, KY on September 24th from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Colvin Community Center, 230 Freedoms Way.

Glendale Crossing Festival in Glendale, KY on October 15, 2011 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Main Street.

Hardin County Extension Homemakers Holiday Bazaar in Elizabethtown, KY on November 12th from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at 201 Peterson Drive.

Dickens of A Christmas, Vine Grove, KY on December 3rd from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Brown Street School behind Vine Grove City Hall.

Since I gave you such a detailed review last week I am not going to go into all the history part of the review but just give you Denise's information so you can get in touch with her and hopefully try one these amazing Flexi's or any of the other products she has to offer.

Oh I love those special hair clips! I did a similar review about a year back, and both my daughter and I loved them. I wasn't able to use them too well with my hair, since at the time it was long and very thick, but they worked *beautifully* with my six year old daughter's hair. You know, we're going to a special church service tomorrow, and she's wearing a lovely dress - I think one of the flexi clips we have will be the perfect finishing touch. Thanks for the inspiration! :)

P.S. I hope your fibromyalgia is feeling better!

Wow! Your granddaughter has beautiful hair. I have thin, baby fine hair. I would need an extra small clip to do a pony tail...and it would still slip out! When you braid my hair it is the size of my pinky. The only consolation is that my hair is always soft and silky.

I just got down to reading about the salt. What a coincidence. Just last week I was in Blue Ridge, GA. I came upon a shop full of "salt stuff" from bath crystals to lamps. I splurged and bought a Himalayan salt lamp! I'd never heard of them but it was beautiful and hopefully will have holistic benefits to my home.

Those look pretty! I'd love to get one for my daughter, if she ever grows hair! I have bad luck with hair accessories myself. I pretty much just stick to loose hair or messy ponytails with very thick hair bands lol.

Thanks for the comment! Yeah I just got a new camera and I have seen my husband take great pics with it so it's just me being dumb! Hahah.
