Lilla Rose Review + Giveaway!

***Giveaway is now closed to entries. Thanks for entering!***

I was recently introduced to Lilla Rose hair accessories. I had heard of people raving about how great they are and I was a bit skeptical, since it really looks like a regular old loop-and-pin hair clip. My hair is also slippery, stick straight and layered so it doesn't stay up real well. My mom was intrigued so we got some to try.


I was very surprised to find that they worked great! I even put my hair up in a French twist per their instructions, and it held very well with no other pins, which is quite a feat with my hair (I'm usually stuffed full of pins). I love the classy, feminine look they have too, and they aren't junky plastic like most of the other clips I can get to stay in my hair. The pin has three notches in it, which keep it from sliding out and give a secure hold. The loops are made from music wire (the kind that piano strings are made of), so it is strong and durable, but just flexible enough to bend around your hair.


They come in all sizes from mini to extra large so anyone can wear them, from those with baby fine hair to super thick and curly. Styles vary from elegant to more relaxed and modern, and some have colored beads and dangles. It's like jewelry for your hair! :-)

Lilla Rose also sells hair sticks, headbands, jewelry, and more!

So what does this have to do with photography? Well... 1. I took the pictures for the post. :-) 2. Lilla Rose clips would be a very handy little thing to keep in your bag for when you're on photo shoots and need to pull your hair back quickly and still look stylish (or perhaps your client's hair is desperately in need of help? *grin*). And 3. (which really doesn't have anything to do with photography, but oh well! I couldn't just leave it hanging at 2 points)... I want one of you to be able to try it out for yourself!

You can also use them as scarf pins!

  3. What a lovely giveaway!
    I wasn't able to find the individual product pages, so I can't put down a specific item.
    But if I won, I would choose a clip like you have.

  12. Nice! I have heard of this company before...and LOVE their clips. :) I've even considered buying one(or two). My hair is also straight...and smooth so its kinda hard to find good clips that will hold.

  24. Grr. The page froze so my comment did not post. Anyhow, I really like the Silver Etches Lily! My hair is super straight (like yours) and reaches my lower back and bobby pins hurt my head so. Thanks for the giveaway opp!

  26. I've been wanting to try out one of these, but I'm a little skeptical about it working in my hair - it's so long and thick - so I haven't wanted to buy one! I like the 3-1559 Tree of Life (https://secure.lillarose.biz/MemberToolsDotNet/(S(jhsayzx2ppt0cf5aoapkuykg))/ShoppingCartNew/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=18346&CatalogueID=204&PartyID=-1&PartyGuestID=-1&InternalUse=1&ProductGroupString=67.71)

  28. So pretty!!
    I would have to spend a hour agonizing over what I "most" wanted from that page, but so far my favorite is 3-0309 Antique brass princess tiara
    [3-0309] I think. :)
    Thanks for posting this give-away on CWAHM message boards!

  30. Can you tell me the sizes of the different clips in your beautiful picture above? I'm guessing the main one with the pretty dangles is a "mega". What about the other three down the side of that picture? I'm trying to get a feel for what sizes I would want to order.
    I'm heading over to facebook to post your give-away on my page at http://www.facebook.com/jennifersaake
