Beauty Beat. You Ain’t Got a Thing, Unless You Have That HairZing. Second City Style Fashion & Beauty Blog

September 17, 2007 • Beauty



I am constantly avoiding pulling my hair back, because I get headaches from being pulled by tight rubberbands and harsh barrettes, so this product was intriguing. HairZing keeps your hairstyle in place stylishly and without tugging. It was created by women, for women and is handcrafted by women artisans around the world.

Thank God it comes with instructions because it was a little hard to figure out, but once I did, I was off and running. There are also online video instructions to learn how to create various styles like ponytails, French twists, half-up half-down, etc.


The coolest part is that HairZing is employing women in China and Kenya where jobs are scarce.

The HairZing team has spent the last 18 months crating a
non-traditional supply chain. The partners Francesca Kuglen and Holli
Montgomery, have both worked for large corporations which rely on the
Chinese Factory system for product. They were determined to sponsor a
more humanitarian and planet-friendly approach.

HairZing sponsors teams of women in China and Africa who are ready
and willing to grow their own businesses. HairZing ‘factories’ are
located in family-friendly locations in both China and Kenya, Africa
where women are able to mix production time with looking after their
families’ needs. It must be paying off as quality rejections are under
1% !

So when you are buying your hair accessory ($13.95 each) you are also helping  support these women who are learning skills to support themselves. Buy one or buy a bunch as gifts.

HairZing comes in a variety of sizes and colors and are virtually indestructible (believe me, I tried).
