Whirl-A-Style Review and Giveaway!


How many times have you been in a hurry and just haven't had time to do anything with your hair?  So you put it up in a messy bun or a ponytail only to have it frizz up or fall down a couple hours later.  All day long your pulling your hair out of that ponytail holder and putting it back up again, sound familiar?  If you have a job that requires you to wear a uniform and wear your hair up, you can't afford to worry about your hair falling down all day!  Well worry no more ladies! (and 'gents with long hair!) I have found the solution to your messy hair-do problems forever and it's called the Whirl-A-Style!


What is the Whirl-A-Style?


According to their website, "The inventor of the Whirl-A-Style, Lois Sonstegard, orignally worked as a savvy entrepeneur with fabrics at her home furnishings company in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  What began as one project turned into an entirely new business idea!  Although there was never any use for the original fabric scrap concepts for Whirl-A-Style, Lois built her wholesale hair accessories business from the ground up and still relies on the same creative resourcefulness and entrepeneurial spirit to create other exciting hairstyling tools.  Today, Whirl-A-Style is successfully positioned to give young girls and women of all ages across the globe, the ability to create fun and fashionable hairstyles in minutes, with their complete line of hair design products. (Including plenty of bridal products as well!)


Whirl-A-Style is a simple to use hair styling tool designed for the woman (or man) on the go!  This stylish and easy to use design tool allows you to pull your hair back into a twist or bun without the need for clips.  It also has a special slit so it provides less strain and pull on the hair itself for less breakage.  The Whirl-A-Style comes in 5 sizes and 12 beautiful colors including tan and black.  It's perfect for the working woman because it keeps your hair in place all day long!  And at between $9.50-$10.00 a piece their pretty affordable as well.  


Whirl-A-Style also carries many other incredible hair design tools to help you create the most amazing hairstyles.  I've included a few pictures below.


Copper Feather Flower with Black feather wisps Accent $66
Black Jumbo Klicinz Hair Styler $10
Large Whirl-A-Style $9.50
My Review-


The Whirl-a-Style was put the the test the first day it arrived.  For those of you that haven't seen a picture of my honey, he insists on keeping his hair long.  He loves his hair like it were his baby and won't put anything in his hair that will tear it out or break it even in the slightest bit.  He put the Whirl-a-Style in his hair and it took him about 15 seconds and 2 tries before he got it right.  Of course, for me it took a little longer to get the hang of it, things always seem to be easier for Josh for some reason. (What a pain!) But he wore the Whirl-a-Style to work and had everyone asking him if he cut his hair!  It stayed in the exact position he put it up in before work, all night, without clips!  He didn't have to adjust his hair or put it back up into the bun, once!  Needless to say, he's been wearing it ever since and I have had about two chances to wear it since then.  But he looks fabulous in it, it's not really a girly looking hair accessory so it's great for guys too!  


Pros: Made from synthetic materials that don't grab and break hair when you take it out.  Fast and easy to put in.  Easily holds hair in place all day without having to keep messing with it!


Cons: At $10 a piece it's a little pricy for the average consumer, but then again if you buy one of these you won't need to get any other hair accessories!  This will hold your hair in a perfect bun or twist all day long!


I highly recommend the Whirl-a-Style to anyone thats in a hurry in the mornings, anyone tired of messing with their bun all day long or just anyone with long enough hair to be put up!






Where can you find Whirl-A-Style products?


If you're interested in any of the products I mentioned in the review tonight or if you'd like to see what other hair styling products Whirl-a-style has to offer you can visit their website and even place an order on their online store.  You can also find them on Facebook or Twitter for more up to date information.  The Whirl-A-Style retails for about $10 in their online store.

  51. I don't have alot of time to spend styling my hair, so most every day it gets pulled back and twisted into something that looks like a French twist and secured with a clip.
