Hair Toys!

I know, I know, I'm a little crazy with posting more things about hair. I suppose it is just turning into a hobby!

BUT, I purchased the most wonderfully awesome hair toy a couple weeks ago and wanted to show it off. That, and tell you to buy one! This is my sister modeling a Lilla Rose Flexi-Clip on her henna head (aren't her curls and color just fab?). Finally, something that will hold our thick, thick updos and look good doing it! The flexi's jewels are wired together and the metal stick is permanently attached. Little notches on the stick allow it to clasp and hold firmly in your hair. Wonderful invention!

Lilla Rose has a beautiful, full line of hair jewelry and other accessories...available in a vast range of sizes so if you don't have a mop on your head, you can still wear their snazzy pretties. I might be hosting a home party if I have some more friends interested...so let me know if you like the things you see on the website.

Jo's hair is so thick that this flexi in a size large can barely handle a half-up twist. She'll definitely need an extra large for an updo. I want to order a medium for ponytails and an extra large for buns.

Next, I'd like to introduce you to my old friends, my Clairol hot rollers. They arrived gift wrapped under the Christmas tree back in 1988 or so. I fell in love day 1. I hope they last for years to come!


My hair loves them too!


And, the hair toy for today:


I've been looking for the stick that fits this jewel for a few months. Found it this morning in the bottom of the bowl I keep my shower scrunchies in on the shelves in my bathroom. Right under my nose the whole time! It was purchased on my honeymoon in Cancun...one of the many do-dahs I picked up from the tourist trap markets...and I think the only one left in my possession. It's made to perhaps go over a ponytail, but doesn't like to stay in my hair that way. Then it's also too small to hold my slick hair in a twist, so this half-up twist held with a pony elastic first, then the clip placed over it works just right.

Okay, I just had to comment one more time-- I still have those SAME hot rollers here at my abode. First the bread sack snow boots, now this.:) And, I do want to check into the hair clips for the girls' hair.

LOL Amy! Of course we would have the same set of hot rollers!! I think the flexis would work really well for your girls. If I have a show they could come and try on the different sizes to see what would work best. I don't think I've ever seen you with your hair pulled up--what's up with that? Of course, if you're getting ready to cut it...
