in Claire's Accessories. It's like a split thick black rubber band, but it comes apart and then clicks back together. It's called a whirlastyle and it has a website but it's pants .
Anyway, on the packet it says 1. Grab 2. Roll 3. Snap
But actually it's more like 1. Fumble 2. Swear 3. Throw whirlaband across the room.
Has anyone got one and knows what to do with it? The picture on the packaging shows effortlessly chic swirly buns with artful tendrils falling out...I just get a lopsided mess with big wodges of hair danging in my face...
Glad it's not just me, kid. On the package it looks like you put your hair through with the band close to your head - like you were doing a pony tail...but it won't roll up then. I think you have to put your hair in with it near the ends of your hair...but it just is so...faffy.
From what I can remember, I used to put the end of DD's hair in the slit (while the ends were open) and roll it towards her head, when it was next to her head I tried to join the ends together. No idea if I was doing it right, but I remember she never did leave the house with it still in!
Years ago there used to be a hair thingy for making nice neat buns and fancy styles. Wonder if it is the same? This one was like a rectangle with a hole/slit in the middle. You would brush your hair back into a pony tail style, plonk on the thingy and twist it like mad to make your pony tail secure, THEN drag it slowly down the pony tail to the ends of your hair and then by twisting the thingy, roll it back up towards your head again. It did used to work. As you got closer and closer to your head, it rolls into a tight mass and then, when you went to link the two ends together, it formed a nice neat bun. Hope this might help. Not really sure if we are talkng about the same sort of thing.
