Potential Torture Device New Curly Hairdryer from Remington

remington spin curl dryer

Putting aside the fact that this is giving me flashbacks to the scene in Wayne’s World when Wayne is cutting Garth’s hair with the Suck Kut, what we see above is actually a hairdryer that promises “easy glamour at the touch of a button”.

For gals who long to be curly, Remington’s new Spin Curl gives you the ability to  create a head full ‘o waves by basically sticking sections into that clear plastic bit, whacking on the on button, and then pulling hair through the gizmo.

Hair is curled as it’s dried using a rotating current – and voila, you get twistyness. Those above look a little dready, but I’m trusting once you’ve run fingers or a gentle brush through them you’ll get volume and bounce.

Exclusively at Boots stores, the Spin Curl is £39.99stg, so no doubt it’ll be about one million Euro here.

    looks a bit gimmicky-aimed at the tween market??

  • Townygirl says:

    i don’t fancy the dreadlock look. i need something that blow dries my hair straight . . now if they invented that

  • Tiddles says:

    WOW. I would SO love to try that! My hair is a bit short i’d say though…but am dying for something to give me curls!

  • xgirl says:

    Ha! I totally thought of Wayne’s World before I started reading :)

  • Townygirl says:

    we’ll swap tiddles. i have long really curly hair, you can have it!!

  • Tiddles says:

    Deal ;)

    Nah – i only want it for the choice – yanno! Sick to death of my hair always looking like this. Would like some chance of variety. It’s too short to go up – to weird looking to leave natural…so it’s short and straight for me so!

  • Shivers says:

    oh dear god… that is an accident waiting to happen!!! even if the “curls” looked worth it, i’d still be nervous, but those dreads are not inspiring…

  • Tiddles says:

    Do any of you remember those purple twirly things that used to twirl two strands of hair and then twirl them together so you could bead the end? I wanted one of those SO badly when I was younger but my mum would never let me!

  • Shivers says:

    Yeah I remember being scared of those too Tiddles… I think I’ve had one too many hairbrush-entangled-disasters to ever touch something that looks a bit dodgy! Anyone else get gum in their hair as a kid? And then had to endure the painful attempts to remove it before they finally just cut it out? oh the horrible memories…. :)

  • Liz says:

    I’m laughing my butt off at this line: Exclusively at Boots stores, the Spin Curl is £39.99stg, so no doubt it’ll be about one million Euro here. :D

  • CoffeeSusan says:

    It all looks a little too much ‘vee haf vays of mayking you talck….’.
    Does the hot hair twirl around, taking the hair with it and curling it, or is there hot metal tongs inside it? *confused*

  • Doubtful says:

    Townygirl they do hav something like that, a cross between a straightener and hairdryer, it dries wet hair straightening at same time. That wud burn my hair tho!

  • Lyndsay says:

    This looks very, very, VERY scary!

  • Babaduck says:

    Betcha fifty squids that my hair would still be poker straight after using this yoke. Even perms didn’t last in my hair back when they were “de rigeur”… I just looked like a petrified sheep!!!

  • Caz says:

    Never got chewing gum in my hair but leaned on a freshly painted wall which my hair stuck to cause it was some mad sort of paint… was a very long bathtime that evening…
    I’d kinda like to try that thingy though. couldn’t make my hair any worse than it already is!

  • Maria says:

    sure even the model looks like she’s really forcing that smile!! i suffer from a sensitive scalp and the only word that comes to mind when i see this is OUCH

  • Emmie says:

    never seen this before. but looked it up and here’s the page on boots.


    Looks fab… no tongs involved…just sayz something about channelling the airflow of the dryer through the attachment, making hair dry in a ringlet!

    Reckon it’s worth a go! My hair is dead straight – I’d try anything!

  • Sandy says:

    Are you working for Remington by any chance?

  • DaVille says:

    i bought one today, was going out to get heated bendy curlers but saw this and boots said i could take it back for a full refund if rubbish. I tried it this evening and it’s great. It’s just a tube that you put your hair in and it creates a bit of a whirlwind that makes you hair twist together. Nothing to catch your hair on, get your hair pulled out by or anything like that. Not sure why there are all these comments about pain, it’s just like dangling a bit of yer hair into an kitchen roll tube.

    The dready curls are just how the dryer leaves them, after a couple of mins after finishing you just run your fingers through and separate the curls, add a bit of product to clam it all down, and that’s it. I wouldn’t want to use it every morning as it takes a wee bit more time than just straight forward blowdrying, but it does really work. Well chuffed, it did the job, my hair is curly, but i think i did it a bit too long, it was too curly for me, had to use some product to relax it a bit. And i disagree with the teen market comment, i’m 30 :)
