Few months ago, I received an email on the possibility to review some hair clips. I initially declined the offer and kindly told the owner that our girls' hair is a bit short to be clipped with anything. The owner assured me that her clips will grip well even in their fine short hair. I thought 'Oh well, let's see how this work out!' and we went ahead with the review. Without further ado, check out my review below...
About the company:
"Victoria´s Class is a mum-owned company dedicated to giving you the very best of girl´s hair accessories, with a focus on exclusiveness, quality and comfort. The company was founded by Thassia Dezan, who realized there was no place where you could find authentic hair accessories for her and her daughter. While most hair accessories shops seemed to be selling unattractive accessories which were disappointing in quality and poor in originality and authenticity, Thassia started designing and making different and exuberant accessories to fit her and her daughter´s every outfit. The first head bands and hair clips received a lot of compliments for their quality and uniqueness which gave Thassia the impetus to turn hard work and inspiration into to a booming on-line store.
The company is named after her daughter, Victoria, who is naturally the biggest inspiration for her design work and class is related to the group of beautiful girls, such as Victoria, which our cute hair accessories are intended for. Victoria´s class accessories are freshly designed by Thassia and handmade by a team of master artisans in The Netherlands committed to providing accessories with superior craftsmanship quality and functionality with classic, yet timeless styles which can´t be found anywhere else. Our goal is that, whether you have a special event coming up, need something for a photo shoot or simply want a beautiful neat hair style for school or every day use, you will find something just perfect in our shop."
I browsed through the website and finally decided on the "Pink & Beige Interchangeable Headband 3 in 1" and the "Isa Hair Clip Set". You have no idea how long it took for me to finally settle on these 2 items. There are just so many gorgeous looking hair accessories in the website!
Let's proceed with the 1st review for the "Pink & Beige Interchangeable Headband 3 in 1". I picked this as I love things with multi-purpose functions, you know, things you can use in more than 1 way.
It consists of an elastic headband and a matching alligator clip which can be used together or separately to provide 3 different results: headband, hairband and hairclip.
Here is how it looks on our girls, totally love the striking pink color, very eye-catching and the elastic band is snug, holds on perfectly and just loves how demure our girls look with it!
Moving on to our next review on the "Isa Hair Clip Set". I picked this as I love the color combination in this set! This set consists of five boutique bow hair clips in the coordinating ribbons: heart print, vivid blue, daisy print, flower print and coral pink polka dots.
Here is a closer look on the hair clips. The bows are made of grosgrain ribbon. I would prefer it if the clip is covered up completely with the ribbon as currently, the bottom clip is not covered. Just my personal OCD habit hahaha...
(** Note: I have informed the owner about my OCD observation and she helpfully responded about the partially lined hair clips: "I don't cover the bottom part because that way it doesn't grip so well. The bottom part of the hair clip has a little curving metal that sticks better in the grip placed on the top (inside) part of the hair clip when closed. If I cover the bottom with grosgrain, it flattens up the metal curve and it has a negative effect on the grip feature. Therefore the clips are partially lined for an optimal hold.") So, okay, just the OCD me, apologies for not realising that there is a valid reason for the cover not being covered up with ribbon. Good to know!
Here is how it looks on our girls...
The hair clips are of good quality, easy to put on and I actually use it a couple of times when we go out! And true enough as mentioned by the owner, the hair clips stay strong even on our girls' fine short hair. Love it!
