Waking up early with a couple of hours to spare before work this morning (my body still hasn’t completely adjusted to Singapore time but it’s almost there!), I thought I would do a little online window shopping.
Initially looking for a home IPL machine , somehow I started looking at hair rollers (I’ve broken the plastic case of my trusty VS Sassoon Hair Roller set), and came across this ingenius product from Cloud Nine, the O Pod.
Looks pretty darn strange right? I imagine my clients getting confused when I start setting up in front of them.
So apparently, it heats up one roller at a time, in four seconds flat, and gives a gorgeous curl. They also claim it’s been used to set Kate Middleton’s coveted head of curls. Gimme gimme!
Will it be fast enough for a high-stress, rush job at a fashion shoot or show? Seems like they also tested it at a show and the O Pod was heating up the curlers faster than they could pop them into the hair.
Using induction technology, the O Pod heats up the O Rollers (available in 20mm/30mm/40mm/50mm sizes) from the inside, so they don’t burn your hand as you put the rollers into the hair. I guess my assistants will appreciate this when I get them to set the hair of countless models before a fashion show, but what’s the use of assisting without getting a few burns eh? HAHA! Anyway, only O Rollers can be used, which means you’ve to buy everything from the Cloud Nine company.
Going at the price of £199.95.. It’ll make anyone baulk at the thought of spending so much on a hair tool – I did! It comes with the O Pod (Sold individually at £152.95), and 12 rollers (otherwise sold at 4 for £17.95), a bottle of Amplifying spray, and a chic carry case.
Do you think it’s worth it? It does seem like a good investment if you love to create curls or volume in your hair, and want to skip those pricey blow-drys at the salon.
Has anyone else tried the O Pod and have anything to say about it? Drop me a note and tell me if I should drop my money on this piece of technology!
