There are a lot of choices when shopping for silk flower hair clips, and some are much better than others!  The good news is that it's pretty easy to tell the difference between the good and the bad, and I intend on showing you how to decipher it, as well as some great places to get them from.

At its core, a hair flower is nothing more than a silk flower attached to an alligator clip, but it's the details that go into the construction that make a big difference from one flower to the next.  There can be beads, feathers, or jewels on the flower that will set it apart from the rest.

The key to finding one that is right for you is to know what you want before shopping.  There are a lot of choices, so having a somewhat clear idea of how you want it to work for you is important.  Do you want a flower that will match your dress, your shoes, your eyes, or do you just want something that will be versatile and allow you to wear it every day?  These are the kinds of questions that you have to ask yourself before shopping.

If you plan on getting a silk flower hair clip for a special occasion like a wedding or prom, also figure out if it's something that you want to wear after the party is over.  Don't sacrifice your look for re usability, but do try and find something that will work with something else that you wear.

Ultimately it's up to you to get the accessory that's perfect for what you want.  Be sure to shop around and find the one that meets all of your needs!

Separating The Good From The Bad

Like I said above, it's up to you to figure out what you want, but there are some things that you should watch out for when shopping for silk flower hair clips.

Most importantly, you're going to get what you pay for.  What's the difference between a hair flower that costs $6.99 and one that costs $20?  Craftsmanship.  The cheaper flowers are made in factories all over the world by anonymous people.  The more expensive ones are made by hand in someone's home or shop and sold by a real person to you.

That's not to say that you can't get a lot from a cheap hair flower, but don't expect much creativity and uniqueness!

There are also some flowers that are made on bobby pins and cheap clips.  These tend to not stay in your hair very well and fall apart.  Certainly, they cost much less, but don't expect much mileage out of them!

Lucy's Blooms Hair Flowers

One of my favorite up and coming hair flower makers is Lucy's Blooms Hair Flowers.  Most of the high end hair flower makers are from California, and this one is no different.  All of their flowers are handmade, and sold at very fair prices.

I was shopping for orchid hair flowers and they had designs that were much different than everyone else.  I got my order quickly, without any hangups.  I'm very impressed.

Your results may vary, but I was very happy with what I got!
