Whirl-A-Style Hair Styling Product Review and Giveaway

Hey Neighbors!

I was sent a product the other day that I have to tell you about. Whirl-A-Style is a hair styling tool that makes it easy to pull your hair up and out of the way. At the same time, it keeps it looking nice and stylish and in place for quite a while. These pictures are after I had it in almost all day. So it is kind of looking messed up.

I really like how well made it is. It does not feel like it is going to break and it is very strong. It basically is a piece that snaps together at the ends and they say you can use more than one to make a couple different styles. I used mine just to pull my hair up into a bun or a roll. I stuck my hand through the slit in the styler and pulled all my hair through. Then you take the ends of the tool and slowly roll it up towards your scalp, while making sure that your hair is rolling nicely. Then when it is up tight to your head, you pull the ends of the tool together and snap them. Easy as can be, right!

Well, I had two small problems that I thought I would mention. I had a somewhat difficult time doing it by myself. Now, my hair is longer so that is probably part of it but it was still a little hard to get the hair in the slit and slip it all the way to the end. When mine is half way down my back, it was a little difficult. The other thing I found was that after wearing it in your hair all day, it kept getting stuck in my hair as I was trying to take it down.  Not a major problem, but just wanted you to know.

Overall I really liked this product. it is something I will use often because it is nice to put my hair up in the morning and then have it out of the way all day. It also is nice enough that I could wear it out to eat, grocery shopping, etc.  The problems I had with it were not enough to stop me from using it. And I it is very handy for someone who cooks a lot, is busy with children all day, etc. And these fall days it is nice to not have the wind messing your hair all up. If you are looking for a nice hair styling tool, you might want to check out Whirl-A-Style. They are not real expensive either. Thanks for a great product!
