Dress to Impress – Baby Hair Accessories for a Workplace Visit

Are you bringing your daughter to work this morning? It's the official Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day!

If your workplace chose not to participate this year, don't worry, you'll still have plenty of chances for an office meet-and-greet with your bundle of joy as the center of attention. But remember, bringing your baby to work is a lot like a job interview; first impressions last!

Dress her up in pretty clothes and keep her tresses neat and colorful with beautiful No Slippy Hair Clippy accessories.

The Haley bow is a time honored accessory that lends a wonderful classic charm to your baby, especially when matched with an adorable little dress. There are more than ten colors to choose from, so take your pick, we’ve got everything from delicate shades of lavender and citron to bolder hues like shocking pink.


Show who the true boss of your heart is with this pair of regal baby hair clips. Bestow upon your daughter the title of “Princess”, with the pink Bubblegum Crown from Honor Collection clips. Looking for something even more glamorous? Go with the bejeweled look and the intricate Laney crown instead.

A day at the office can be a lively affair and your little one is sure to be the center of attention, so keep her locks neat and tidy with the Zoey headband, which comes in pale pink and white ribbon organza. The organdy headband is just snug enough to keep bangs in place while still being ultra comfortable on your darling daughter.

Be sure to check back soon, we’ll have loads more suggestions from our wide range of beautiful accessories!

Plan a Zoo Day, Special Memories for Mom and Daughter!

The sun’s out and spring is in the air, why stay indoors when you and your baby daughter can have a day of fun down at the local zoo! Just make sure you plan ahead: 

Zoo Preparation Tips
  • Stroller – Pick a comfortable stroller, preferably with a sun shade. If you’re thinking of loaning a stroller from the zoo, bring your own blanket so you’re sure it’s clean and comfortable.
  • Sunscreen – While everyone needs a little sunshine, it’s always best to be protected!
  • Extra Food and Clothes – Pack all the essentials, like her favorite food and extra diapers and bottles in case she gets hungry.
  • Itinerary – It’s always a good plan to have a decent idea of what habitats you’ll be visiting. Try to avoid wild and noisy animals that might overwhelm or alarm her.
Don't forget the camera!

Now that you’re all set and have the schedule and day kit ready, it’s time to plan her outfit for the big zoo day. No Slippy Hair Clippy® has two sets of adorable animal clips for you to choose from.

Mila Baby Animals is a fun six-piece collection of animal clips, from the cuddly cow to the rosy-cheeked monkey. Each clip is covered in smooth felt that’s gentle to the touch, and designed to stay on no matter how excited she gets!

Meanwhile, the Jayla Garden Critters come in four colorful insect designs. The dragonfly version comes in brown and pink, both of which look great on blonde and dark brown hair respectively. The pink snail and rainbow butterfly are slightly smaller in size, but are equally cute and colorful.

Have a great time at the zoo!

A Lovely Gesture for Earth Day

On April 22, 1970 a concerned US senator launched the first Earth Day to get people talking about the environment. Fast forward over four decades, and Earth Day has become a global event that raises awareness for our precious planet.

One with Earth

Your baby is never too young to rock the world with peace signs! By wearing the Peace Sign clipette™, she can help remind people to put aside their differences and come together for the good of the planet. This clipette™ is made of grosgrain ribbon and available in black and shocking pink.

Natural Beauty

Flowers are one of Mother Nature’s most stunning creations. Without flowers, landscapes lose their beauty and plants cannot produce fruit or propagate their seeds. Your baby blossom can give tribute to this natural wonder by wearing the Kara Gingham Rose, a mini clip with a classic bloom and leaf design.

If your toddler already has a big bundle of hair, the Lindsey headband is a better choice to keep her tresses neat, pretty and Earth Day ready. This headband comes in pink or white, and has a double-layer, five-petal flower design topped off with sparkling sequins.

Hip Butterflies
Moms, don’t let your little ones have all the fun. Capture the spirit of the ‘70s with these Meredith butterfly clips.

Now go out and flaunt those hair clips while doing your fair share of conserving, recycling and educating.

Happy Earth Day everyone!

Baby Bonding Activity: Play Easter Dress-Up!

Bunnies, eggs and jellybeans—everything Easter’s surely in the air!

The Easter holidays are the perfect excuse for a little family fun, hunting for painted eggs and lounging in garden chairs after a wonderful brunch. For you and your little ones, Easter can be a magical bonding time and made all the more memorable by some choice hair accessories from No Slippy Hair Clippy.

Candy-Colored Clipettes for Babies
Our candy-colored clipettes are just the right choice for little ones with a sweet tooth.

The popular Dots clipettes come in a range of beautiful pastel colors and have a non-slip grip designed to keep your baby’s hair comfortably in place all day. The round shapes evoke the bright-colored eggs so popular during this time of year, and you can choose from a selection of colors ranging from Turquoise to Lime (both in picture) and even classic White.

The bunny is another enduring symbol of Easter, and you can have this cuddly animal accompany your baby at all times. Choose between two cute designs: The Bunny pinch clip (above left) which shows a white bewhiskered wabbit, or the Alisha pinch clip (above right) which has a felt stitch bunny face in citron pink.

Easter Hair Accessories for Mommies
Speaking of the Easter bunny, do you know why most of them are colored pink? According to tradition, pink signifies a fresh beginning.

As the mother of a beautiful baby, wearing pink hair accessories can be your way of celebrating the arrival of your baby girl into the world.

The Emily bow (above) is a sweet shade of light pink that looks splendid on light or dark hair.

A sparkly option is the Heather headband, which has a multi-layer flower, gilded with sequins and beads. It comes in both shocking pink (in picture) and white.

It doesn’t matter if your hair is curly, wavy, or straight—our clips and headbands are comfortable, and they just work!

The No Slippy Hair Clippy store also has many more hair accessories for babies and their mothers – check them out and you may find more beautiful pairings for Easter!

Elegant Hair Accessories for Prom Night

The senior prom will be one of the most memorable nights in your daughter’s life.  Surely she’ll look beautiful and elegant, just like a movie star!

Picking the perfect gown is never easy, but in between custom fittings and arranging limo rides, don’t overlook choosing the right hair accessory to complement her gorgeous evening attire.

Don’t panic! We scoured red carpets far and wide for the trendy looks sported by today’s young stars, and matched them with No Slippy Hair Clippy® accessories that will look hip and keep things classy!

Want to mimic Taylor Swift’s wavy coif? Why not go with the Ryan flower, a dainty silk organza flower that looks great on wavy hair and comes in five rich colors, from soft pink to dark brown (in picture right).

Does your daughter have long dark hair like Nina Dobrev of Vampire Diaries fame (in picture left)? Hold it in place with the lovely Tonya headband (in picture right), an organic cotton headwrap topped off with a silk flower design.

All-American girl Diana Agron (in picture left), who plays Quinn Fabray in Glee, sports a princess-like updo that frames her beautiful face. Achieve the same soft look for your daughter with the Parker bow (in picture right), available in lavender and light blue.


For the fashion rebel who wants to make a statement like music siren Lady Gaga (in picture left), the Fiona clipette bow is a flexible choice that can be attached on back, top, or side of any hairstyle. The white color version (in picture right) gives off a girly and feminine vibe, but the volume can be pumped up by choosing more vibrant hues, such as shocking pink.

If you're looking for even more prom hair accessory ideas, I recently wrote this post that helped a mom choose a matching hair accessory for her prom-going daughter. Feel free to browse the No Slippy Hair Clippy store as well to get even more inspiration.

Good luck, and happy prom night!

Ask Annie!

Holly from Wisconsin wrote,

Hullo Annie!

I’ve been a big fan of your hair accessories for a while now and I need your help! My daughter’s getting ready for her senior prom in a couple of weeks, she’s got a beautiful, olive green, strapless dress and a matching hand bag ready. However, I’d love to get her something from mom that’s timeless and elegant, something she can remember years from now that just completes her look.

PS. I think her little sister, who just turned 12 is getting a little jealous of all the attention, so if you could suggest something for her too I’d really appreciate it!

Hello Holly! Prom season is fast approaching isn’t it? I’m actually planning a separate blog post about what to wear to the prom, but since your need appears to be more immediate, I’d be happy to give you a few early tips.

The prom is a special night and I think it’s fantastic to be able to look back at what you wore and feel a sense of pride, elegant is good and timeless is even better!  I think I’ve got just the thing…

The Lucia Two Tone Silk Flower, available in a deep lime or brilliant white is wonderfully classy and beautifully understated.

Just as elegant is the Kaia Large Lily Flower,  I think getting one of these in white would be a lovely subtle accent to your daughter’s olive green dress. 

But let’s not forget her little sister! I think it’s wonderful you want to get her something nice as well, it won’t be too long before she’s looking for accessories to wear to her senior prom! I recommend our Coco Satin Bows with Rhinestone, available in a variety of colors (my personal favorite happens to be Maroon).

I hope your daughter has a lovely prom Holly, and don’t hesitate to write if you have any other questions!
