I wrote a post not too long ago on some items that were on my "Currently Craving" list. Hair Jewelry was the third item on that list. Since then, I made a couple of purchases online. But my most excited hair jewel acquisition has got to be these nifty little rhinestone hair pins from Lilarose.
It all started when I received an email from a nice lady named Nicole. She generously offered to host a giveaway and would also allow me to pick an item of my choice to do a review. After browsing through the vast options available, I finally decided on the fabulous pair of Stoneset "You-Pins."
I have to be completely honest with you and say that these things were terrifying when I first saw them in person. The idea of sticking those metal prongs into my hair caused me a little concern. This unhealthy fear stems from bad experiences in the past with hair pins after they lost their plastic tips.
They sat on my desk for nearly a week before I mustered up the nerve to finally use them. My first attempt was after I used regular bobby pins to secure my hair in an "upsweep." Once my hair was up, I gently slipped these flowered accessories into my style, in random places. I could not believe how comfortable they were. Immediately I removed the bobby pins and readjusted my style using just the bedazzled pins. Amazingly, these were able to hold my hair up with no worries.
Needless to say, I feel in love with them right away. I can not believe that these are gentler in my hair than my standard hair pins. Even taking these out were a breeze. Absolutely no snagging at all.
I'm gonna rock these when I wear my buns so I can add a bit of pizzazz to an ordinary hair style. I know that many of us are protective styling right now. These are the perfect finishing pieces that make protective styling a bit more glamorous.
Let's all take a moment to thank Nicole who graciously offered to host a 'Hair Jewels' giveaway this month. She will be sending me a piece from the website for one of you lucky gals. Details to come...
