Lilsugarplum_new_box What a cute little boy!
How old is he?
He’s adorable!

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard that from strangers.

I think Madelyn looks especially pretty in light green, and yellow, so she is often mistaked for a baby boy.

Because I raised and dressed a boy for seven years before having a girl, it didn’t dawn on me to use hair accessories until I received a hair band and infant hair clip to review from Lil’ Sugarplum when Madelyn was about five months old. Since my initial review of Lil’ Sugarplum’s infant hair accessories, Madelyn hasn’t left the house more than a handful of times without her Lil’ Sugarplum hair clip or hair band on. What’s really funny is that my husband insists on putting the hair clip in Madelyn’s hair because I apparently don’t do it right! How weird is that?

Madelyn gets so many comments when she is wearing her Lil’ Sugarplum hair accessories…it’s so fun! 
Lil’ Sugarplum hair clips are made especially for infant’s fine hair. I wondered how on earth these little clips would stay in just a few strands of hair but Monique, the woman behind Lil’ Sugarplum, created a hair clip just for infant’s fine hair.  The Velcro strip helps keep baby’s fine hair in the clip all day. I was truly impressed the first time I put a Lil’ Sugarplum hair clip in Madelyn’s hair as she has so little of it and it is so fine.. but sure enough, it stayed in all day. Best of all, Madelyn wasn’t bothered by the hair clip at all. I expected her to try to get it out but she didn’t even know it was there.

Monique offers the Periwinkle infant hair clip in six different colors and you can purchase all six at a discounted price so your baby will have a clip to match every outfit.

I highly recommend that all moms visit Lil’ Sugarplum.

I had been looking for months to find a hair clip that would work (and stay) in my infant daughter’s hair. After buying many clips at local stores, I was about to give up, until I discovered these amazing hair clips. They are beautiful and they actually work and stay in great!! We love them!!

Dear Monique,

I absolutely LOVE these beautiful clips. WE are having our 2 1/2 year old daughters pictures taken and she will be wearing one of the three we ordered! They are so lovely and well made! I have tried other clips in her hair and none of them stayed in..until I found you…your clips stay in her hair all day!! I will definitely be placing future orders and referring you to all my friends!

Dear Monique,

I received my monkey, froggy, and 5 Petal Pearls Baby Hair Clips today(just 3 days after I ordered)
, and I was so delightful after I opened the little pink box.
The clips are so delicate and adorable!
You must put a lot of time and love while making them.
They look just like the photos on your website(even prettier!), and work so well on my 4-month-old’s baby hair.
I deeply appreciate your work, and I am so happy that I have found a place to get pretty and cute baby hair clips that works for my baby :)

Thank you so much~

When I originally looked at the Lil’ Sugarplum website it was really hard to choose a clip from all the adorable selections. I finally did and have had a positive experience since receiving the product. First and foremost the clip is the only one I have bought since my daughter was born that actually works. Her hair is very fine and store bought clips just don’t hold her hair up. The velcro on the Lil’ Sugarplum clip makes the clip hold her hair all day long. This makes the seemingly eternal process of growing her bangs in seem not so bad. I was also VERY pleased with the customer service. I never expected to get a prompt personal email asking me how I liked the product. Monique and her product are second to none.

I have had two wonderful experiences with Lil’ Sugarplum hair accessories. The first was a beautiful headband that my daughter first wore at 5 days old. I had two of these headbands and they were the only ones I would put on my daughter because you could tell they were made to be comfortable for even little newborns. When Ava turned 11 months and had just a little more hair I searched online for a baby ponytail holder. When I saw the Lil’ Sugarplum site I remembered Ava’s cute little headband purchase so I ordered two ponytail holders. They shipped fast and as soon as I got them I put Ava’s hair in her first pigtails, something I had wanted to do since the ultrasound revealed a little girl! I wrapped her super fine hair into two pigtails and to my surprise and excitement they held and boy were they adorable! Now she never leaves the house without her pigtails and I can’t wait to order more in every color! Thanks for making such cute baby items! If it weren’t for these ponytail holders it would probably have been another year before Ava had enough hair to sport her first pigtails. Thanks again!

I purchased two hairclips and a headband for my 6 month old with very little hair becuase I got tired of people telling me what a cute baby boy I had. I had tried other clips but because her hair is so fine (and there is so little of it at this point) that it would just come right off. So, I splurged and decided to test these out. I must say, they are are adorable and most importantly, they stay on! Even my sister who hates the headbands liked this one. I have just placed a second order and can’t wait to order pony tail holders as soon as that hair comes in! I’ve recommended Líl Sugarplum to my online mommies board as the product and the service are excellent! Thanks, Monique!

I love these hair clips so much. They are pretty pretty pretty. I LOVE that they are handmade and that you can have personal customer service with Monique.
I am going to recommend it to all my friends with little girls.


Amanda December 30, 2007 at 12:48 pm

These clips are great! I have purchased other baby hair clips from stores and they never would stay in. Within 10min they would be lost. Then I ordered 2clips from Lil Sugar Plum and I love them. My daughter is 6mo old and they stay in her fine hair all day and are so adorable. I will be ordering more in the future! Thank you!


Becky December 20, 2007 at 11:20 am

I bought 4 hair clips from Lil’ Sugarplum and they are great. My daughter is 5 months old and I have had a terrible time finding clips with velcro. These are perfect. Baby hair is just so smooth, any others slip right off. She’s gotten many compliments with her Lil’ Sugarplum hairclips in. I especially love the one with the monkey on it!! She’s my Little Monkey!


Dawn December 17, 2007 at 6:45 pm

We love the hair clips we just ordered from lil’ sugarplum; they are absolutely adorable and so well made. I was amazed that they are able to stay in my 8 month old daughters fine little hair, the way that they do. Monique has been wonderful and we will definitely be purchasing from her again in the future!


Anne December 10, 2007 at 7:13 pm

Wow, that was fast delivery! This hair clip is absolutely fantastic. It never, ever falls out :) We got lots of compliments on it. We just love it. I will definitely be ordering more! Thank you so much :)


Carrie December 6, 2007 at 10:44 pm

Thank you sooo much for the beautiful hairclips! The clips are so cute and very well made! My baby has a lot of hair, but it is very fine, these clips are the only ones that stay in and look adorable doing it! I liked the first group of clips so much I had to order more styles and colors for stocking stuffers. Now my daughter has a clip to match all her outfits!

Doing buisness with you has been a pleasure, you have a great product and EXCELLENT customer service! I appreciate the emails and the cute little pink box and bow!
Thanks again,

Lil’ Sugarplum has the cutest hair accessories for babies! I ordered several hair clips as well as head-band and every item is filled with details and love from Monique, the owner. I just received my order yesterday and I am ready to reorder in different colors!
Definitely recommend Lil’ Sugarplum! :-)


Jennifer November 30, 2007 at 2:33 pm

I just wanted to add my personal rave about Lil’ Sugarplum hairclips. I had been hesitant to use clips in my daughter’s hair because of my fear of her choking, but, not with these clips! They hold her baby fine hair so nicely and are just darling! I’ve only purchased one so far but I am sure it is just the beginning of an addiction. :-)



Alice November 27, 2007 at 11:28 am

I just received my Lil’ Sugarplum clips. They are just the perfect size for my 1 year old. I searched many other sites, but they seemed too big for my little sweetie’s head. The second I put one on her, she looked so girlie and sweet, even without much hair! I was finally done with people asking me if Mandy was a boy, so this was the perfect solution! These clips are so well-made and stay on the baby all day, without requiring lots of hair. I will definitely be buying more of these clips since there are so many to choose from!


Stacey Friesen October 20, 2007 at 10:49 pm

Man I wish I would have had that buy 2 get one free coupon code!! I am in LOVE with my clip! I bought one for my daughter and one for my neice and they are so adorable! They really do stay in too. The packaging is super adorable, and customer service is amazing!! Can’t say enough about Lil’ Sugarplum!

Cathy Lee September 17, 2007 at 3:33 pm

I have tried many types of clips for my daughter who has thick but fine hair. No clips have successfully stayed in her hair until I got the Lil’ Sugarplum clips. I either couldn’t close the clips or they would slip off. Not only were these clips absolutely beautiful, Monique has the best customer service! I will definitely get my clips here from now on!


Bess September 17, 2007 at 1:08 pm

I just got some hair clips for my daughter. She is 14 months old, but still has virtually no hair. I’ve tried other clips, and they would just slip out and be too heavy to stay in her superfine hair.
The little sugarplum hair clips actually stayed in, and they are so light that my daughter didn’t try to pull them out.


Tenaya September 15, 2007 at 2:56 pm

These headbands and clips are adorable. My daughter is only 3 months and she look so cute in the headbands. I will be purchasing more clips as she gets more hair. These clips and headbands are unique and worth the price. I recommend LilSugar Plum products.


Ginger August 20, 2007 at 3:21 pm

Every baby girl I know is going to get these clips! I have a whole bunch for my 11 month old daughter–I have never seen any clips like these in stores, they have always worked so well in her hair, even when it was very fine. She still wears the clips to this day and I just love them. I recommend them to anyone I know.


Jackie August 20, 2007 at 1:14 pm

I love all of the clips and the headband that I purchased for my daughter Evie. The headband was perfect for her baptism!!! Thank you so much!


Kristen August 13, 2007 at 1:47 pm

My daughter loves her hairclips from Lil’ Sugarplum. At six years old, I don’t think she has ever had a clip stay put in her fine hair. She likes that she can do it herself and the clip stays in place all day. The decoration is very attractive as well.


Melina August 9, 2007 at 10:43 pm

sugarplum has so many cute hair clips. I couldn’t decide which one to get. The first purchase I made, I spent about $80 and it’s so worth it. And I know I will be spending some more. Thank you again for designing such cute hair clips.



Sarah Moffitt August 5, 2007 at 11:54 am

Lil’ Sugarplum,

Thank you-I love them!!!! They are adorable and they stay in unbelievably. I am also impressed by the quality. I have bought many hair clips for my older daughter (at around the same price) and your clips are the best I have seen. And, they are the perfect size for infants. Other ones that I have seen look too big for those precious tiny heads. I will definitely be placing future orders!

Thanks Again,


Beth April 8, 2007 at 10:27 pm

Lil’ Sugarplum has adorable handmade hair clips in many colors. I purchased several for my daughter and the girls in her playgroup. They are so pretty and stay in her hair all day! They arrived packaged safely in a box. I just bought a scarf from Lil’ Sugarplum too and my daughter loves it! She looks so chic! I highly recommend Lil’ Sugarplum to everybody.
