{no slippy hair clippy} Review & GIVEAWAY! *CLOSED*

 
I absolutely love the concept behind "no slippy hair clippy" company.  That is, that your baby girl should never be mistaken for a boy when using their products.  I think as the mother of a newborn baby, we can all relate to this issue.

Now, I myself don't have the problem of NO HAIR, as our baby girl was born with a FULL head of hair!  In fact, it's the one thing nearly every single person comments on when they first see her - "Just LOOK at all that hair!!"  That being said, it's still baby-fine hair, so it's slippery like none other than, well, baby-fine hair.  In fact, we probably have more trouble than baby's without hair, because headbands {especially the crocheted versions} tend to slip right off her silky hair {versus a bald baby who's skin would grip the band more}.  So we, too, wanted to find something that would actually stay put in her hair, and were definitely up for the challenge!

"no slippy hair clippy" is a company that creates such clips & hair accessories to stay put in your baby's hair {even if nearly bald!}.  They use a Swiss velvet-wrapped metal clip to gently yet securely hug that hair, keeping the clip/band in place.

They offer 3 different types of clips - a Mini, a Standard Pinch and a French clip for girls with lots of hair.  They also have recently come out with their "Clipettes," which are modern grosgrain no-slip hair clips.  These are the least frilly of the options, in my opinion, so good for those moms who don't want to "overdo it" or just want a more simple option with less fuss.  They also offer headbands and accessories for both teens and women.

 Zebra Clipettes $2.95


Their products are made using a water-based kid-safe non-toxic glue to attach the velvet ribbon.  Good to know they're not risking the health of your child with their products, isn't it?  Afterall, we know these can slip into some small mouths by accident if we're not carefully watching our children.  That being said, "no slippy hair clippy" does advise using precaution to avoid getting them wet, as the glue can dissolve then {to help remedy against this, they offer a long strip for you to hang them from}.

Additionally, "no slippy hair clippy" has been nominated for the "Earnie" award for design excellence the past 5 years.  And did I mention it's a celebrity favorite?

So we received each type of their clips ~ from the clipettes and minis to a headband and standard pinch. 

Andrea headband $11.95

We really loved each of the samples we were sent ~ particularly the adorable little velvety purple mini clip with the attached butterfly {pictured below}.  The clipettes are perfectly practical and simple for everyday wear, while the floral clips are statement items ~ perfect for pictures, weddings, or just days you want your little girl to be a little more spectacular than she already is!  "no slippy hair clippy" also offers a few "themed" clips, like bunnies and shamrocks, that are spot-on for holidays, as well.

Presley - Tiny Butterfly - $7.95

Unfortunately the headband was too big for my baby girl's head {she's just 3 months old}, so we couldn't really test that out on her.  So instead I tried it on my 1-year old niece, and it was really beautiful!  It was a simple, plain white stretchy band with a gorgeous sequined white flower attached to it.  It looked gorgeous on her ~ really!  And I tested out the pinch clip on myself, since you need more hair for them.  Again, it was a beautiful flower {we received red} with sequins, and it added just the right amount of feminine flair to my ponytail.  And it most definitely did not slip whatsoever - the standard pinch flower worked fabulously!

All in all, we were very pleased with "no slippy hair clippy."  I was a bit disappointed that the headband was too big for our baby girl, but it will make for a great hair accessory a little bit down the road, for sure!  I really love the concept behind this company, and while we did experience a bit of shifting with the clipettes, we did experience less slipping & sliding versus other similar clips we have, and all the other items performed like a charm.
