Miss Chloe’s hair is getting quite long now and thickening up nicely. I tend to think she looks a bit scruffy with her hair down and try to tie it up where possible – I’ve certainly instigated the “you wear your hair up for school” rule for a number of reasons – mainly lice and the fact that I can’t abide kids faffing with their hair on the carpet when you’re trying to teach! Anyway I digress . . . She is getting much better at letting me brush her hair now thankfully – I think she’s realised its quicker and less painless to just stand still because Mummy will always win! Mostly we just go with straight ponytail at the moment but she has recently started to show a bit of interest in clips and hair bands – I was really surprised that she chose one in H&M a while ago and then left it in her hair for ages.
With this in mind I was really interested when we were offered the opportunity to review a hairband from Cute Cute – the website is full of gorgeous clips and hairbands covering a range of occasions – everyday wear, school, party wear etc. I explained to Magda, who runs the company, that we really don’t do pink but that Chloe does wear a lot of navy. Magda picked out this fluffy little beauty from her party range. It’s not something I would ever dream of having picked up for Chloe myself but you know what? It’s actually really pretty and really quite suits her! Of course it’s not designed to be worn on a day to day basis but it would be great for a special occasion. I love the twenties style glamour of it!
The hairbands come in a range of sizes (0-6m, 6-12m, 1-2 years, 3-5 years and 6+ years) ensuring a perfect fit for your little princess. Chloe’s hairband is age 1-2 years and fits her head perfectly (I also tried it on my goddaughter Erin who is 1 and it fit her fine too – though she whipped it off before I had chance to take a photo of her wearing it!)
The hairband arrived beautifully packaged with a loyalty card as well – with every order you receive stamps, one for every £10 spent, and once you’ve collected 8 stamps you send your card (or cards) back to receive your free gift (which might be a headband, bow, plaque or top). Always nice to be rewarded for money you were spending anyway!
Chloe is clearly comfortable in her hairband as she never fussed with it once and, in fact, was most unimpressed when I took it off her which surprised me! The lace band has just enough stretch to stay in place but not so much that it creeps backwards. The hair bands are by no means cheap but they are gorgeous, handmade, special occasion items! I would definitely look at Cute Cute again if I was looking for something a bit different for a specific outfit Chloe or as a gift.
