No More Scrunchies!

Posted By Jessica Fisher On March 30, 2011 @ 12:00 pm In Beauty and Fashion,Promotions | Comments Disabled


Springtime is here — and it’s cause for celebration! The weather is warming up, the sun shines a little longer each day, and the days just say, “Come out and play.” It’s time to put your hair up and get out and about.

I was stunned when my friend Jen said that scrunchies were “out.” [5] What? Scrunchies? The soft little bit of fabric that I keep in my purse for that spur of the moment ponytail? Out? Kaput? Dated?

Say it ain’t so, Jen.

But, Jen is the fashionista [6], and I am not [7]. We’ll leave it at that.

So, while I am clutching tightly to the scrunchies I just bought from Target in January, I am also conceding that there might be a better way. At least since I received hair clips from Caroline, a consultant for Lilla Rose [8].

Isn’t this beautiful?


Not only are these clips absolutely gorgeous, but they are also very user-friendly. You don’t need a degree in cosmetology to get your hair looking pretty with these clips. Though I will say that watching the video helps [10].

The video was super helpful in choosing the right clip in my hair, plus it gave me the confidence to try out different styles on my own.

I love the Lilla Rose clips [11]. Not only are they pretty, but they are one piece, unlike other similar hair clips I’ve owned in the past which were two pieces, one of which was inevitably separated from its mate.  The clips hold an amazing amount of hair and enable you to do a number of different styles on your hair, including a ponytail, completely eliminating your need for a scrunchie.

Wouldn’t Jen be proud? ;)
