Flexi8: Review and Giveaway

hypothesis Hair accessories from Flexi8 will be an easy way to quickly style my hair in the morning and not worry about it all day!


One hair clip in each of  5 sizes (mini, extra small, small and medium), my two year old daughter’s curly locks and my long tresses. About Flexi8:

flexi8 “The Flexi 8 is a completely unique, flexible barrette that holds thick, thin, curly, straight, fine and coarse hair. The Flexi 8 comes in a variety of sizes and hundreds of ever changing styles. Flexi 8 uses an ingenious patented locking mechanism to secure it in your hair. It’s such an attractive and unique accessory for your hair, once you try the Flexi 8, LOOK OUT! (you’re in love)”

results With two daughters and myself in the house, there is definitely a need for different types of hair accessories.  My youngest daughter has insanely curly hair and my oldest has thin hair.  Me, on the other hand, has thick but relatively straight locks so many type of hair products are needed in my home.

flexi8c When the Flexi8 products arrived, I lined them up on my counter and immediately picked the large clip to  try in my hair.  Guess what…it was too big for my hair.  In fact, most women over-estimate which size they need.  I would strongly advise you to check out the video on sizing the Flexi8 before purchasing.

flexi8d The medium sized barrette is perfect for me!  I can use it for both a partial updo and a tails up ponytail.  Other than the fact that I love the way the accessories look, I also love that the pin is attached to the barrette so you don’t lose it.  Genius!  The barrette is quite flexible which creates a very sturdy accessory perfect for kids.  I did send my youngest daughter to daycare with her mini barrette and it lasted all day long in her hair!  I also have worn mine on several occasions and it has yet to slip out of my hair.  Check out all the different sizes in order to create different looks and hairstyles!


I will admit that I was a bit skeptical about the Flexi8.  The barrette looks heavy and I didn’t think the pin would stay in my hair, but this barrette stood up to the test and is now my absolute  favorite accessory for both me and my two daughters.  Make sure you take the sizing tips so you can choose the style that is right for you!
