HairZing Review and Giveaway!




I really enjoy experimenting with new hairstyles and hair accessories. While browsing for hair clips a while ago I came across Hairzing, a really neat accessory for your hair! This one-of-a-kind piece is the perfect way to hold all kinds of hair styles in place! The Hairzing is actually 2 hair combs attached together by a stretchy, decorated band. After gathering the hair you want held in place, you slide a comb in on one side, then stretch the band over the gathered hair, and slide the 2nd comb in in the other side. This comfortably  keeps your hair in place! I usually wear my hair with the sides pulled back, and generally have to use a jaw clip or scrunchie to do this. The problem? A jaw clip becomes uncomfortable after a couple hours, plus there are some things you just can't do while wearing a jaw clip! (Like taking a nap while on a trip, wear a hat, etc.) So, I usually use a scrunchie, but I hate when they get tangled, and end up ripping some of my hair.  I have started using the Hairzing to pull back the sides of my hair though, and it works great!  It doesn't give me a headache even when wearing it all day (something I have to deal with a lot when using other clips). You can hardly even tell the Hairzing is there, other than it's holding your hair in place!



I have also used my Hairzings to do ponytails and french twists, and it works great for both of those styles. I am having fun trying out some of the ideas from the Hairzing Step-by-Step Style Instructions.  One of my favorites is the Half Up/Half Down Pull Through. This is basically the same as a normal sides-pulled-back, but you pull the sides through the middle os the stretchy hairzing band, which adds bounce, volume, and a little bit more secure hold, I have found.  




The Hairzing is unique in that there are several sizes available, so whether you have fine, thin hair, or thich, curly hair, you can get a Hairzing that will hold your hair in place! 

"Q. How do HairZings work?
A. Forget everything you know about wearing normal hair combs. HairZing combs actually operate "backwards". You place one in your hair first, hold it, stretch the second and flip it under to face the first comb. The soft contour of the combs fits the curved shape of your head. The bands are made of resin and elastomers which are stronger than rubber bands so they stretch and contract to hold the combs snugly in place, but never damage or break you hair like rubber bands will.

Q. Are the combs comfortable? Will they lose teeth or break? A. We are comb connoisseurs and extremely proud of the lightweight yet uber strong design. Most women report they cannot feel the combs at all, just the snug, comfortable hold of the bands stretching between the combs. Francesca specifically chose a strong, flexible metal wire as the result of years of experience working with (and wearing) plastic combs. Plastic breaks and shatters, no matter how strong it is. She wanted something superior, to withstand the rigors of a real woman's life. It had to be able to be wedged into a purse, diaperbag, backpack or glove compartment, while being able to spring back to life if it were run over by a bicycle, stroller, or RV. We think you'll find the combs to be adaptable to whatever rigors you inflict upon them."

I have to say, I love my Hairzings, and will be using them for a long time to come!  They are very reasonably priced, and right now when you buy a medium silver or tortoise hairzing, they'll also send you a medium black one for free!


Hairzing is giving 5 of my readers their own "Hairzing Wardrobe", which will consist of a Medium Beaded, Large or Skinny Large Classic, and a Casual Zinger!
