Whirl-A-Style Review and Giveaway

I put my hair up frequently. I like to get it out of my face. I'm pretty unoriginal with how I put it up though. I either do it in a messy bun sort of style or just a ponytail. Pretty boring right? I'm always looking for new ways to wear my hair and Whirl-A-Style has taken my request and made it a reality!



Lois Sonstegard is internationally respected as ‘THE Upstyle Hair Design Resource’. Whirl-a-Style hair accessories are also internationally recognized as the leading upstyle and hair styling design accessories in the world, with successful sales across many professional and fashion retail categories, including the salon, spa, dance, cheerleader, bridal, military, and general retail markets. Whirl-A-Style consists of three different, yet related hairstyling products: Whirl-a-Style, Klicinz and Poppi.

Whirl-A-Style is a simple to use hair styling tool designed for the woman on the go! This easy to use hair styling tool allows you to pull your hair back into a twist or bun without the need for clips or hair ties. 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 colors.

I was sent a brown Whirl-A-Style for review purposes. I think this product is great for women, especially moms on the go who don't have time to really do their hair. This tool will allow them to still have a fun and trendy hair style, but in a much quicker way.



The hair styling tool matches my hair perfectly which is good because it blends in well. I was sent instructions and an instructional DVD with my styling tool. I've used products like this before so I figured I could easily get the hang of it. It's not as simple as I remember and it did take some practice and getting used to before I could securely have it in my hair. I have longer hair so it takes some practice when you use the tool before you get it 100% right. I like that there's so many different hair styles you can achieve by using this. I slid my hair through the slit and followed the instructions which told me to roll it up. I rolled it up and snapped it into a funky bun updo. I really like it because you can achieve elegant updo's that look like you spent hours in a salon getting it done, but for a fraction of the cost!

The tool is easy to use once you get the hang of it, and it's fun to create many different styles. The tool stays securely in your hair and is not uncomfortable to wear in any way, and it doesn't weigh on your head either.

  7. I'm somewhat hair challenged. I can't even do a bun so that's what I would do with the Whirl-A-Style

  8. I'd like to do a classic bun but since my hair is layered it would more resemble a messy bun. I see the Whirl-A-Style comes in a smaller size which would be great for my granddaughter
