Review: Whirl-A-Style

Recently I tried out the Whirl A Style. Have you guys heard about this product yet? It’s a hairdressing tool like a hair tie or claw created for active women in that it combines form (a stylish bun) and function (quick and easy, no bobby pins, and stays in place) without causing headaches.

Brilliant, right? I often pull my hair back into quick – though decidedly not stylish – buns, so I was excited to give this a whirl!

(Sorry, couldn’t help myself.)

Let’s start with the pros. It’s true that the buns you can create with the Whirl A Style are much more stylish than what my usual claw hair-clip can handle.

And yes, the Whirl A Style bun stays in place – even after exercise, and without causing any annoying discomforts.

The bun sank a little lower and the strands came a bit loose, but the hold still felt secure and not at all uncomfortable.

But. It’s not perfect.

The Whirl A Style works… IF you can get it in your hair.

The lovely pictures above, you see, show the bun that my husband created in my hair. He was able to create a decent bun and snap the ends of the Whirl A Style together so everything would stay in place. I could not. It also yanked out some hair when I tried to pull it out. Sheesh.

Their tutorials make it look so easy, but I just couldn't hack it.

Bottom line is that if you can figure out how to get this in and out of your hair like the lovely models on their tutorials you’ll never need to buy a pony tail holder or hair claw ever again. Not bad considering it retails for less than $10.
