We had planned to hold eBay auctions for these items several months ago, but have had issues getting our accounts up and running. Now that, that's taken care of... we can finally discuss these wonderful items and give you a chance to win or buy one of your own!
Auctions Begin this Thursday, August 19, 2010, at 9pm.
Back in May, Veronica, from No Slippy Hair Clippy, sent me an envelope filled with beautiful, colorful, unique hair accessories from their collections. I felt like a kid in a candy store! They were so pretty and my girls wanted to wear them immediately. These aren't your normal plastic hair bows you can buy for a few bucks in bulk. They are like no hair accessories I've ever seen before.
At first, I didn't think much about the "No Slippy" claim that their hair bows/clips stay put. I'm used to reattaching my girls' bows several times a day and using hair spray to make sure they stay put. There have been many days after school that I've noticed their hair bows were missing, hanging at the very bottom of their hair, or lost forever. You could say I'm a sceptic, I suppose.
Our oldest daughter, who is 8 years old, wanted the larger bows, while our youngest daughter wanted the smaller ones. We had a birthday dinner planned for our soon to be 6 year old and what better time to try these out! I placed the large yellow flower clip in our 8 year old's hair and the smaller pink bow pinch clip in our birthday girl's hair.
We headed out to eat at her favorite restaurant and I really forgot all about whether the hair bows even stayed put or not. We had a great time and enjoyed the meal and dessert with a special Happy Birthday song just for her. Something that the restaurant staff didn't normally do, but because she was turning six and it was her favorite restaurant, they made her song extra special!
It wasn't until we were leaving the restaurant, that I realized the No Slippy items had stayed put and were still as perfect as they were when we left home. I was surprised. In all of the excitement of my daughter's birthday celebration meal, I'd forgotten about the hair bow issue. I'm usually fiddling with their bows every hour or so, but never had to touch their hair during our outing that evening.
After that, I really wanted to try out all of the accessories that had been sent to us for our review. It was exciting for me to find an item that actually does what it says it can do! So, we tried them all out and had great success with most of our items. They sent me a sampling of several sizes and styles so we could try them out and find what worked best for us.
The only issue I ran into with these hair bows were with my youngest daughter. She has super fine, but thick, short hair and the 1" Pinch Clips were a little hard to get in and find a good spot to stay on her. I had a tough time finding the perfect spot in her hair for the 1" clip to stay in without moving about. My oldest daughter's hair is fine, but very thick. Her hair was just too much for the 1" Pinch Clips.
I would recommend the larger Pinch Clips for older girls. I believe the smaller clips are aimed more towards babies and toddlers, anyway. The larger Pinch Clips and French Clips worked wonderfully and we've had no issues at all with those.
The No Slippy Head Bands are gorgeous! My girls' hair is too short to wear them properly, but they are so pretty and soft. I can't imagine any little girl ever getting a headache from these! The great thing about No Slippy is that they make their hair bows and head bands in varying sizes, so all Little Princesses can wear their items!
On a scale of 1 to 10, these lovely hair accessories scored a solid 10 with our family! They are well made, stay put, and look as beautiful today as they did when we first opened the package. I plan to order more soon, from their website and eventually, replace all of our old, beat up plastic bows with No Slippy bows!
I know you will love them too! I'm so sure, I'm giving one away...
