PR: Bling Strands! (and a giveaway!)

What I Thought:
These are really neat! I received the purples ones in the mail and my daughter promptly made me put them in her hair. I have a few bits of advice on that but I'll get to that in a bit.
They are thin plastic "strips" that you basically tie on to one or two pieces of hair. At first I thought to myself..."this cannot possibly work or hold up!" Much to my surprise they are actually very tough. The ones I put in my daughters hair actually stayed in for about a week before we pulled them out. She loved them and everyone thought they were really cute. I brought her to the hairdresser (and we actually forgot one in her hair) who asked about them when she saw it.
Now on to my advice...read the instructions and if you don't understand them you should watch the video. It's not hard but if you don't do it right they will slip out. Tighten them from the end of the strip; if you don't they tend to curl. (but you can apparently treat them like hair once they're in. I'm not sure because my daughter doesn't use a flat iron or anything)
I think these would be good for prom, dance recitals, etc. They would work for any fun occasion!
Here is a picture (taken from the Bling Strands website) that you can see them in use. Here you can see they are being used as a dressy accessory.

    My daughter would love these. They would even be nice for me for holiday parties and fancy occasions. If I win these I imagine I will have to arm wrestle her for the rights to them.

  7. I would use them for my upcoming birthday. I am closer to 50 than 40 anymore so maybe these tinted, shiny stands would help to distract from the gray in my hair ;-)
