There is nothing better than having big bouncy hair from a curly blow, is there? So when the invitation for the launch of the Pro Blo Curl Me Styler* launch night dropped into my inbox, I couldn’t say no to going. A new innovation in hair styling, the Pro Blo Group has thought of the way to replicate the curly blow technique from the comfort of your own dressing table.
The launch party was held at Neighbour in Spinningfields, one of Manchester’s great bars. Canapés in the form of fish tacos, mini beef sliders and mini strawberry ice cream cornets were served alongside never ending glasses of Prosecco and one of Neighbourhood’s signature cocktails. Famous faces such as local designer Nadine Merabi, X Factor star Carolynne Poole and cast members from Hollyoaks, Coronation Street and Desperate Scousewives were also in attendance.
So, what is the Pro Blo Curl Me Styler? Have you ever had a curly blow at the hairdressers and the hair dresser will leave all the brushes in your hair until it has cooled down and set? Well, this is exactly what the Pro Blo Curl Me Styler is intended to do, but to cut down on the amount of brushes you need and to also allow you do it at home or on the go. Working in the same way as a roller would, you can blow dry you hair and smooth down the hair shaft as you use the barrel to roll the warm hair. Fix in place, and use the butterfly clip for extra security then pop the handle out of the barrel leaving the barrel in place. The Pro Blo Curl Me Styler comes with six barrels, in various sizes to achieve great volume where you need it. Additional barrels can be purchased for longer or thicker hair.
I gave the Pro Blo Curl Me Styler a go to see just how easy it was to do at home. My hair is very long, quite fine but a lot of it. I am no stranger to using rollers, both sleep in and heated, at home for extra volume. I do need a lot of rollers for my hair usually so I knew that six barrels wouldn’t be enough. I blew my hair so it was roughly 50% dry and sectioned off the top part whilst I blew the bottom section into a semi curl with a rounded brush. I used the largest barrels on the top, with the medium barrels on underneath and the two smallest barrels on the side of my head with the least hair. The hair width was an issue as it didn’t all fit around the barrel, however this would be solved with extra barrels. It also made it an issue when removing as some hair did get caught. I’m not particularly headsore but I did swear a few times when removing the barrel. Once I had set them in place, I blasted my hair with cool air and left the Pro Blo Curl Me Styler in for around 40 minutes.
The Pro Blo Curl Me Styler was really easy to use, including removing the handle. I struggled with the length of my hair but that has nothing to do with the styler. Removing the barrels was a tad painful, but this is probably due to my hair getting tangled. I’m looking forward to my hairdresser trying these out on me to see if there is much difference in the overall outcome. For a 40 minute wear whilst my hair cooled down, I’m really impressed with the results. My hair feels so aerated and light and the loose curl is still intact, several hours after taking the barrels out.
For a new innovation in hair styling, I give the Pro Blo Curl Me Styler a big thumbs up. You can buy yours exclusively at Pro Blo Group for £35 with additional barrels for £30 for 6.
