Hello, hello! We girls are excited to review the Lilla Rose headbands for you today. But wait, you say, haven’t you already reviewed them? Yes, but that was the old model; today we are reviewing the new and improved Lilla Rose headband, which has some absolutely wonderful new features that really make it shine above it’s predecessor.
What are these new features? For starters, they lengthened the beaded chain, which means that you have more pretty showing and less elastic. This is something that we really didn’t care for about the old headbands: it felt like you were wearing such a small strand of beads with a rather unattractive strand of black elastic taking up half the headband. Which brings us to the next improvement: in addition to lengthening the chain and shortening the elastic band, they also offer the comfort band in colors which match your hair color! So whether you are blonde, brunette, black, or even grey haired, Lilla Rose has you covered! The last feature is the little lobster claws fastenings at the end of each beaded chain. This small but mighty element holds in its metal claw the ever-wonderful feature of inter-changeability! It means that you can not only make necklaces with the chains (using this extender for a longer necklace, or this one for a shorter version), but also that you can even double or triple up several chains on one elastic! But more on that later… 😉
Now, onto the reviews!
I loved all of the new features of the Lilla Rose headband! They also seemed to improve the quality of the beads and materials used, which I greatly appreciate. I think my very favorite feature is the shorter elastic band and longer beaded chain. It makes the wearability so much better!
In this review I am wearing the Mixed Metals hairband. This one is a wonderful, neutral piece that can be paired with any outfit with a bit of boho/modern flair.
I was SO excited when I found out about the new features of the Lilla Rose headbands! I never really wore our older Lilla Rose headband because of the black elastic band, and it was just a wee bit on the small side for me. With the new headbands however, the fit has definitely been improved, and the brown elastic band blends right in with my hair. My only complaint would be it seems like the elastic tends to fold on itself near the clasp and relax over time, but that’s where the adjusting slide comes in handy. I am looking forward to getting more use out of this headband in the future!
The headband that I styled for this post is the Dusky Plum. Some of the metal beads have a delightful iridescent quality, making it a nice combination with both pink, purple and a multitude of other colors.
Lilla Rose has outdone themselves in this new and improved version of the headband! Certainly, the natural color selection of the elastic bands, and the useful lobster claw clasps all add to the uniqueness and versatility of the Lilla Rose headband. I also enjoy how clever they were to allow the headbands to be transformed into necklaces! We didn’t show it here but with the lobster claw at one end, and a couple extra links at the other, you can easily wear this pretty accessory around your neck!
I am styling the Turquoise Tranquility headband for this review. I love how the richness of the turquoise beads help to accentuate any shade of blue I might be wearing, and how easily it complements any other color. It is truly a fun summer addition to any hair accessory collection!
We were able to squeeze all three chains onto one elastic for a very dramatic statement headband. Such a gorgeous look, no? And just think of the possibilities with this new feature of the headbands! You can mix and match to your hearts content, and achieve so many beautiful combinations!
