Two Little Monkies Review and Giveaway Ends August 6th! ~Closed~

So let me start off by saying I am totally addicted to bows, clips, headbands, and virtually anything that can go in a little girl's hair.


When I decided to do these reviews I asked my readers to tell me about their favorite stores and what they loved about them.  One of my readers directed me to Two Little Monkies.  I went over to her Etsy shop and completely fell in love.  


I was sent two sets of bows to try out, one for my youngest daughter and one for my oldest daughter.  Let me tell you they were completely different from each other.  The maker decided to send me one set for very fine/to virtually no hair (lol!) and one for normal hair (ha!).  They were absolutely adorable and very well put together.


Well let me start with the baby's hair clips.  I received 3.  When I got them out I have to say I was a little worried.  It was the kind of clip that you have to push down to get it to stay.  I mean my baby squirms and has a really soft head still and I was very worried about using these.  BUT I DID!  And I LOVED it.  They looked a little awkward at first, but that is because of the layout of her hair haha!  They stayed in place and they were not that difficult to get in after all.  I timed how long they stayed in before they fell out.  The first time I put them in they were in a total of 2.5 hours.  The second time was less...baby realized they were there.  In the mist of her noticing they were there we lost 1.  I think that was the only down side to them...they were so small they were easy to lose.  So we only have 2 out of the 3.


Would I buy more?  YES!! More because I tried them in my hair and my oldest's hair and they worked REALLY well for putting those few strands of hair back from in front of the face.  I even stacked them and they looked really cute.  I had actually forgot I put them in and went out in public and everyone commented on how cute it looked (LOL!)


Now onto the big girl hair bow.  It was an alligator clip.  It fit really well onto my oldest's hair, my hair, and even onto a headband for the baby!  There was no issues with this one.



Would I buy more? YES!  I thought it was absolutely adorable, well constructed, and my oldest loved it!  It also helps when they request more!
