In Full Bloom: Lovely hair accessories for Spring

Over winter, we tend to bury ourselves in wool coats, knit bonnets and wraparound scarves to keep warm. But spring is here so shed away those bulky layers in favor of light, vibrant outfits!

Brighten up your wardrobe with these flower-themed hair accessories from No Slippy Hair Clippy:

The Layla clip has a two tone felt design and studded with sparkling acrylic gemstones. It comes in various orchid color pairings from french blue and sand yellow to lime green and mandarin orange (in picture).

The Felicia Flower clip has a bejeweled design that looks dazzling on any young girl. You can choose between a pinch clip or French clip version, and can pick from among three gem colors including bright lavender (in picture).

Cute as a button! That’s what everyone will say when they see your little tyke wearing the Isabeli clip, a no-slip felt mini clip that comes in shocking pink, lime and lavender (in picture).

Pack the Andrea Headband and make heads turn when you pair either the red (in picture) or black accessory to your favorite summer frocks.

If you’re headed for breezy mountaintop destinations, the Sage Headband is a wonderful choice since its cotton headwrap design keeps your hair firmly in place. The daisy flower centerpiece also helps soften your rugged hiking ensemble. 

For more hair accessories perfect for Spring, browse through our complete collection at the No Slippy Hair Clippy store.

Law & Order's Alana De la Garza thanks No Slippy Hair Clippy!


Mary Lenore: Just wanted to say Thank You! We loved the goodies you sent for our son Kieran! The little baby legs are sooo sweet. Cannot wait to use these all around town. I’ve already had girlfriends ask where to get them. Hair Clippy’s are always great for mommy’s frazzled hair. And the magazines are always fun! Thanks again!
Alana De la Garza

It’s our pleasure Alana! We appreciate the hand written note and we knew you’d love the No Slippy Hair Clippy hair accessories included in your baby shower basket. We picked the best ones for your short wavy hair so you’ll always look great while taking Kieran out on a stroll, or when you’re shooting your new show Law & Order: Los Angeles.

For those wondering who that beautiful baby boy is, that’s precious Kieran (full name: Kieran Thomas Roberts), the first child of Alana and husband Michael Roberts. Kieran was born on September 28 and weighed in at a healthy 9 lbs., 3 oz.

When Alana’s not doting on her son, she’s busy shooting new episodes for Law & Order: Los Angeles. Alana gained such a big fan base on the original Law & Order series as the tough Assistant District Attorney Consuela “Connie” Rubirosa that producers of the spin-off series asked her to reprise her role.

Law & Order: Los Angeles returns with all-new episodes on April 11, so let’s tune in and cheer Alana the supermom!

Ask Annie

Hello Annie,

The weather has been absolutely dreadful, and as you can imagine my twin nine year old daughters and I are really looking forward to spring! 

We’ve already planned some picnics in the park and have some wonderful open air concert nights that we’re looking forward to. More than anything really, we just want to be able to take some nice long walks! Do you have any ideas for hair accessories? 

Hi Melanie! The weather has been a bit much hasn’t it? Snow and snowmen are all well and good, but mushy ice and frosty days indoors are not for me!

I love picnics in the park, I don’t get to go on picnics as much as I would like to these days, but preparing a packed lunch and unfurling a soft blanket on the cool grass is just so much fun! 

But that’s quite enough daydreaming! As far as hair accessories for spring go? Here’s what I recommend:

Our Lauren Crochet Flowers, particularly in Apricot or Turquoise. They’re very cute and the subtle variation in texture and detailing really brings them to life. Can’t you just see your little girls wearing these?

And here’s a little something you too, mom, we wouldn’t want you to feel left out! Our Tallulah French and Pinch Clips from the Multi-Colored Embroidery Flower line are a wonderfully vibrant burst of color, particularly in Amethyst or Olive

Alternatively, you could go for that classic look and try out our Daisy Headband, with a beautifully detailed pure white headband and spring daisy adorning.

Whichever No Slippy Hair Clippy you decide to get, remember its spring, so don’t be afraid to really announce yourself, think subtle yet deep colors, and above all have fun!
