Tired of that plastic claw clip? - Review and GIVEAWAY - CLOSED - WINNER ANNOUNCED

We have chosen a winner in the Flexi-8 giveaway:

Lucky #6:


Congratulations, we will be emailing you shortly with instructions for claiming your prize!


You know what I'm talking about... those ugly, plastic claw hair clips that, although convenient, are literally, well... a pain in the head!  The plastic is cheap looking, breaks easily and (in my opinion) worst of all, makes you hold your head at an awkward angle when you're driving because you can't put your head back or the clip will poke you.  As much as I hate to say it, I too, am guilty of wearing these - in fact I have a pretty large stash of them in my house but they're not for hair anymore. 

I've found an ingenious new product, the Flexi-8 hair clip!  The Flexi-8 is an attractive, flexible, durable and comfortable alternative to the plastic Claw clip.  When I first saw them, it was obvious how beautiful they are, but I am unlucky enough to have thin, baby fine hair so I never figured it would stay in place - but was I wrong!  
The Flexi-8 comes in six sizes, from the mini 2" to the x-large 5 1/4" pin so there a size for every type of hair - and best of all... THEY STAY PUT!  In fact, it has been hailed as everything from the "wonder bra for hair" to a "god-send".  The Flexi-8 has become so popular via word-of-mouth, blogs and boards that we have shipped to over 39 different countries all over the globe.  The Flexi-8 hair clip has been only found at Craft Shows, Festivals and the company websites, and has been virtually unheard of...so far.

The great folks at Flexi-8 sent me a few samples so I could try them for myself and, although I was doubtful, I gave them a shot. I used several of the sizes, from the mini and x-small to hold a half-up ponytail, they even worked on a half-up on my 8 year old! The small and medium worked perfectly if I wanted to do a "french twist" type of updo.

These clips are lightweight and best of all, they don't stick out several inches away from your head so they're comfortable no matter what you're doing.  The pin that holds them in place is attached so it can't be lost and they're so easy to use! It isn't often that I find something that will actually stay in my hair without modification (I have been known to glue pieces of rubber band inside heavy barrettes so they would stay in my hair) - but these flexi-8's worked straight out of the package and stayed in all day without having to be adjusted.  Both my daughter and I love them and wear them often.  So what do I use all of those plastic claw clips for now?... They ARE very useful for something... keeping chip bags closed!

I would order the medium because I have medium length curly hair and I'd love to have the Princess tiara with the 'Freestyle' array of colors.

Aisling said...

I have very thick medium-long hair so the large size would be ideal for me when I wear my hair up. I'd probably need a medium for a half-up style. My favorite Flexi-8 is the Mighty celtic knot with antiqued accents.

I would choose the Lite Pink Fairy with matching pink beadwork in xsmall. It would be for my daughter who has fine shoulder lenghth hair.

Thank you for the entry,


mrssquigg said...

I would be an extra small since I can only put up about half of my hair due to getting headaches when all of it is up. I like the Fairy with aurora borealis faceted crystal as fairies are my favorite creature and I love the color of the beads.

I am a size medium because I have course, wavy hair below shoulder length. I like the medium elegant style center with clear stone-set and dangles because the design is unique and beautiful...plus it has dangles! Sweet!

I have somewhat thick and wavy hair, so I'd probably need a medium when down and a large when wearing it in an updo! I like the Celtic Knot. Thanks so much! pamelashockley(AT)aol(DOT)com
