Robanda Twirler

Marketed as the world’s only spherical brush, this hairstyling tool features a special, circular design that allows hair to be styled in one simple twirl. It comes in both a regular and innovative thermal design, which conducts heat and makes curling hair easy without an iron. The Twirler’s design mimics the spherical shape of the head to create a softer, more natural look that compliments the face. It boasts an easy-grip handle that allows hair to twirl in any direction effortlessly.
