THE SIMPLEST SOLUTION FOR STYLING HAIR
The Carlin is a premium hair accessory that serves two functions simultaneously.
It creates a sophisticated updo that is comfortable and secure while simultaneously creating beautiful curls.
It can be used solely to secure a beautiful bun, or as a stylish way to look fantastic while curling the hair.
Carlin means pug in French.
It was named after my pug dog Otis. I adopted Otis from a pug rescue when he was 7 years old. He was my silent business partner until his passing in July 2020 at age 19
HOW IS THE CARLIN DIFFERENT?
The Carlin serves two functions simultaneously. It creates a sophisticated updo that is comfortable and secure while simultaneously creating beautiful curls. It can be used solely to secure a beautiful bun, or as a stylish way to look fantastic while curling the hair.
The Carlin's unique wire structure allows you to twist the ends to tighten the updo. This is why you will have a hairstyle that stays put all day.No bobby pins required. One accessory & you are done!
Other updo accessories are often made with plastic or sponge materials, which require users to hide it once it's in their hair. The Carlin is made with high quality velveteen to accent your hair, so you won’t want to hide it!
The Carlin is always comfortable even when sleeping or sitting against high-backed seat.
✨ "I put my hair in a beautiful side ban with The Carlin to go to work. I take it off to enjoy nice curly hair for HH. No more damaging my hair with a curling iron!" - Naomi, San Francisco CA
✨ "I never ever have time to really do my hair in the morning. But with the carlin, I can do a very lovely updo that looks pretty & professional"
- Emily, New York City NY
✨ "I purchased this on kind of a whim and can confirm that it stays in your hair great and the waves and curls happen relatively quickly and stick around for me for most of the day. I have a lot of layers in my long hair though so find getting them into the accessory a bit trickier than all of these ladies with one length hair in the video may lead you to believe.I would still buy it knowing that." - Rebecca, Boston MA
✨ "I LOOOOOOVE my Carlin!!! As a twin mom, it holds my hair so neatly and securely! I have to say though as a woman who wears extensions it is the best around! There is no tension, it doesn't pull on my hair but somehow keeps its tightly in place. So comfy to sleep in too!!! I've used it every single day since I received it!!!" - Liz, Foster City CA
✨ "I was very skeptical that this would work on my really thick hair but it does!! I've styled it three different ways tonight- I can't stop playing around with the possibilities. And I've NEVER been one to style my hair. This is super cool. Thank you!!!" - Courtney, Dallas TX
✨ "I love mine. It stays put all day, even through a workout, and it's even comfortable to sleep in. I don't get the breakage that I got using hair ties. Highly recommend." - Angela, San Jose CA
I was inspired to create The Carlin when I had to make the daily choice between waking up an hour earlier to make my hair presentable for work or get a much-needed extra hour of sleep. Most days that additional hour of sleep won the battle. Working a job that required a 6 a.m. arrival, finding the time required to do my hair before my two-hour commute to the office was nearly impossible. I desperately searched for ways to quickly get ready so I could maximize my sleep. I looked for versatile hairstyles I could do for a special occasion or wear to the office. A hairstyle that was classic and would not go out of style. I also wanted to have a great hairstyle without constantly styling my hair with heat, resulting in hair damage. Unable to meet that objective on my own, I looked high and low for a tool to create beautiful updos without much effort and time. After coming up empty-handed, I decided to create a solution of my own. After experimenting with hundreds of materials, I found a suitable mix of utility, durability, and sophistication that was needed to create a hair accessory that achieved all my intended objectives. I named the accessory “The Carlin” which means pug in French and it was named after my pug dog Otis. I adopted Otis from a pug rescue when he was 7 years old. He was my silent business partner until his passing in July 2020 at age 19.
