What To Do With Homestead Hair (And a Giveaway!)


**GIVEAWAY CLOSED. Congrats to winner Grace T.! **

I don’t really give many “beauty” tips here on the blog because:

(a). I think that most of you would rather learn about milking a cow or how to do cool things with eggshells.

(b). My life is so insanely busy, that playing around with my hair and make-up are just not too high on my priority list… šŸ˜‰


I still like to look somewhat presentable when I go to church or head to town to run errands. It does feel good to clean up every once and a while.


The problem is, that in order to be good at something, you have to do it a lot.

That’s why I’m pretty good at making mozzarella, or homemade tortillas, or essential oil concoctions.

And that’s also why I’mĀ not-so-handy when it comes to hair and makeup stuff… Never have been, in fact.

During my teen years, when all the other girls were spending hours in front of the mirror doing their hair, I was outside wanting to do more “important” things (like riding my horse!)

Therefore, I’m always thankful when I can find a “shortcut” to cute looking hair- and I think Lilla Rose clips are the perfect solution to “homestead hair”– in my humble, unprofessional opinion, of course.

The Lilla Rose hair accessories keep your hair up and out of your face (a must while doing important things like planting seeds or rolling out dough…), and they look pretty and feminineĀ while they do it! And you don’t have to be talented at fixing hair in order to use them. *a-hem*

They can alsoĀ fit a wide variety of hair textures, lengths, and styles. Check out this sizing page and video to figure out what size would be best for you.

The Flexi-Clip is the product that Lilla Rose is most famous for, but they also carry hair pins, bobbies, headbands, and other unique accessories.

Today, Jill Wright, an Independent Product Consultant with Lilla Rose, is giving one of you the chance toĀ win some Lilla Rose products for yourself!

One lucky reader will win a gift set (valued at $50)Ā consisting of:


AND,Ā Jill is also offering a special for first-time customers! Here is her offer:

  1. Cindy Waye says

    I love the Flexi Hair clips and the Badge Holders. My daughter has long thick hair and these clips would be wonderful for her. Thank you for the chance to win.

  2. Susan says

    So many beautiful things it’s hard to choose a favorite. It’s a tie between the Dreamcatcher and the Fairy Aurora Borealis I think.

  3. Barb says

    Flexi-clips are so fun and easy. It is all I use in my homestead hair! The music lover is my favorite.

  4. says

    I REALLY liked all of them but if I had to pick just one it would be this one. 3-0763 Princess Tiara Dangle I have long hair and haven’t found a clip yet that will hold it. I guess that’s why I’m so hesitant to buy one. *sigh* They are beautiful though.

  5. Amanda King says

    We like the flex clips. We have three girls in our house and all of us would love to use them.

  6. Leslie says

    Oops — missed the place to tell you which hair clip I liked: Hawaiian Flower flexi-small hair clip. Thanks for this chance to win — love the designs, and they are reasonably priced. Thanks, also, for your helpful blog.

  7. Elaine says

    I wasn’t able to look at the badge clips but I really like the plumeria flexi, pearl sticks and several of the larger flexi that could replace my ugly clips. :0)

  8. JC says

    Love the Flexi Clips and Orings. Not sure of exact style I would want but I like the looks and versatility.

  9. Theresa says

    So many pretty designs! I think my favorite is the Princess Tiara Dangle. I was wondering if the new cat clip will come with a dangle too?

  10. Marie in Montana says

    I would love the Flexi Clips. Thanks for the offering the chance
    Keep the Faith,

  11. Kristin Hamblett says

    Love the idea of the flexi-clips! Going back to the site to check out what other have liked! :)

  12. Kathy T says

    I like the Divinely Framed Jewel flexi-c;ip/ Have been wanting to try these for several years now.

  13. Dawn says

    Can anyone pick a favorite? I really like the Timeless Celtic Knot flexi-clip; but then, I like the Simple Danglie Jet flexi-clip, too; or maybe the Roman Cross Antique Brass… Oh my…

    I’ve seen these online in blog posts a few times, but today was the first time I actually went to see what was available for sale. These hair accessories are beautiful. Thanks for the giveaway.

  14. Donika says

    I love the multi-colored stone clip! Just what I need to keep my hair up out of my face and look pretty at the same time.

  15. Denise says

    It is wayyyyy to difficult to choose! I do love the Vintage Rose, but I am also enthralled with the headbands! Nice stuff!

  16. Nicole says

    Love the little flower bobby pins. Mature enough that I can wear them would look cute in my daughters hair too!

  17. Tasha says

    I have a dragonfly flexi clip and I love it. There are so many other ones I would love to get (or give as gifts!) The Celtic knot may be next on my list.

  18. Tammy says

    I really love them all but the Open Flower Gold and the Open Heart Dangle are my favorites I think!! :) I’m going to have to get me some of these if I don’t win because I have long naturally curly hair and I always just put it up in a messy bun to keep it out of my face. Honestly, I think I need some of those hair sticks. Thank you for the chance to win!!

  19. Christina Rogers says

    I love the Hair Sticks, they would be a great improvement over the pencils I have been using…lol. And I really like the ook of the Princess Tiara Dangle Flexi-clip.

  20. Deb M says

    I have no idea how to control my hair. Never learned all the girly stuff. Will be ordering soon!

  21. Cynthia says

    Crystal stone cluster but all are pretty! I have two of these, purchased from Jill, and need a couple more in other sizes. Plus the headbands look like they won’t pinch your head! Love Lilla Rose!

  22. Kelly T. says

    Seriously…how am I supposed to chose my favorite??? Purple is the color of my team, so I love the scrollwork butterfly. Pink is my favorite color in general, so I love the Hawaiian flower with pink. The hummingbird is my favorite bird, so I love the fluttering hummingbird. And you expect us to choose……


  23. says

    OOh, I’m in love with the hair bands. Someone else mentioned a celtic knot but I didn’t see those. I’ll have to go back and look.

  24. Pamela Caldwell says

    These are so majestic, I would really love to win so much that I couldn’t wait to see if I did so I had to buy one. Shhhhhhh

  25. Pat says

    The flex clips are so fun, especially the tiara flex clips…so feminine! I really like ’em all. To find a favorite….eh…..they’re all fun.

  26. Hope says

    I think I like the majestic cross the best, but who can choose a favorite from all the beautiful choices! Lovely!

  27. edith Kile says

    I love anything that has to do with hair. That is the one thing I strive to keep up. I can not wear make up and love outdoors and animals (thus I do not dress up everyday). I love my very long hair to be up off my neck so the pins were exciting to me. Everything they have is wonderful because I love hair gadgets ans am always looking for new and unique ones ~ that actually work. Will be going back to get me some. Thanks for sharing!

  28. says

    I just love the way the stick is attached to the rest of the clip, now you cant lose it or you lose everything lol

  29. says

    They are all gorgeous but I think I like the Rich Multi Color Copper in the medium flexi Thanks for having such a great give away.

  30. says

    It is very hard to choose a favorite product but I especially like the Flexi-O rings. My hair is thick and I think one of those would hold it in place. :)

  31. LisaB says

    I had a really hard time trying to decide. I love the any butterfly or celtic cross flexi large but I also love the silver daisy hair sticks.

  32. Joan S. says

    It’s so hard to choose from but I’m partial to turtles so I pick the flexi mini sea turtle. I have thin hair so I chose mini.

  33. terri says

    8-0771….that is so pretty! The black beads remind me of the jet necklace my grandma had

  34. DaLaina Burhans says

    I love the multi-colored stone cluster because it will match with almost everything. :0)

  35. Kissiah Aiken says

    My fav has to be either the butterfly or the dolphin medium clip. I can’t decide!

  36. April says

    The Majestic Cross Clip is our favorite!!! My daughter and I have long, think hair :-)

    Thank you and God bless.

  37. Kristel says

    I love reading The Prairie Homestead! All of the Lilla Rose hair accessories are beautiful. I especially like the scrollwork butterfly flexi clip.

  38. Karin C. says

    Flexi Hair Clips look lovely for my girls and I to try with our long hair! Thank you for this chance to win and try this product!

  39. Jennifer says

    They were all beautiful, but I think my favorite is the 3-2204 Music Lover. My 2 boys are in band, my daughter is in chorus, and I’m a complete music freak. LOL That was just seems fitting. :)

  40. Lillace Christianson says

    The smoky topaz and clearly jet headbands are gorgeous, as are all the products!

  41. Anna Case says

    I am having a hard time picking as well. I can easily choose one for each of my daughters. Actually no, I like several for each of them too, I guess if I had to choose on to try I would go with something simple that would work for all of us. Maybe one of the Celtic knots?

  42. Bethany says

    Oh my goodness! The clips are beautiful! I love the butterfly ones & the turtle! :)

  43. Jennifer Smith says

    I love the small Freestyle Princess Tiara, it’s simple but would match everything.

  44. says

    These are great and believe it or not I too will be purchasing or winning the Celtic Cross as it goes with my Celtic Cross necklace that I wear everyday. It is really nice to find quality hair accessories, now the chickens and the sheep won’t have to put up with my messy hair-do every morning.

  45. says

    I really love the bobby pins. I’m trying to grow my hair out and I use them all the time. My favorite that I saw are the Celtic Crosses. SO pretty!

  46. Brie says

    Wow, these look sooo easy to use, even for someone like me who can throw my hair in a plain pony tail or just leave it down! I really like these flexi clips, and the movie tutorials are fantastic as well! I think my favorites would have to be the regular silver celtic knot and the celtic cross, and the deep set rose!

  47. Jenn says

    Oh, these are gorgeous. I sure can relate to homestead hair. In high school I spent hours on my long, curly hair. Now, a scunchi is it for me. I just went through a health crisis and lost a LOT of hair. Now that it’s grown back and getting think and crazy again I’ve been playing with it. If I won these, I think I might actually use them. Good luck to all, and thanks for the opportunity!

  48. Bartini Lee Bollinger says

    I love all the flexi clips! Hawaiian Flower, Celtic Cross, Fairytale Princess Tiara, Etched Tiger Lily… they’re all so pretty!

  49. Amy says

    They are all really pretty! I also am not very girly but would like to look nicer for my husband while miling the cows:)

  50. Melissa Q says

    The plumeria flower bobby pin is just the right amount of femininity for my shorter length hair. Love. And a great price!

  51. Kinsey says

    I really like just about all of the Flexi Clips, but the Starfish one is really cute for summer.

  52. Amy says

    I would love these for my two daughters and myself to stay pretty as we milk cows and feed chickens:)

  53. Sarah says

    To be honest the silver clips with flowers are the most flexible to use. They go with ANYTHING! I also wear the scrollwork heart a lot. People have asked me, “Do you do your own hair?” And all I did was pull it back! šŸ˜€

  54. Melodie Pickett says

    I am a fan of the Celtic Knot in Black Nickel and the Celtic Knot in Brown. They are both lovely.

  55. Melissa K says

    I like the diamond center. They have so many pretty ones, it’s hard to choose!

  56. Kat says

    The star pins and the flexiclips are awesome. Something I’d actually do my hair for…

  57. Angie says

    I would LOVE to have an extra large flexi clip. Or the pink headband. Or One of the Oring clips.

  58. Jennifer says

    I like to french braid my hair and then pin up the tail. I like the open heart dangle for dress-up and the Scrollwork Heart for day to day. A great product!

  59. Brenda says

    I LOVE the Fancy Blossom Dangle flexi clip. I bought several similar clips (sold by Goody) years ago and loved them, and now only one remains, unbroken.

    I’d LOVE to win this and have something to do my hair “up” with and feel special! :)

  60. Sarahbeth Simonson says

    It’s hard to choose a favorite, but I really like the Flexi clips and the Flexi O-rings

  61. Melanie says

    I love so many of the flex clips but if I have to pick one that is a favorite, it would be the soaring butterfly.

  62. Shay Logan says

    I love the flexi clips, horse named rose and the emerald circle! The pins are very nice too!
