About Teazie Volume Styler
Part of Campbell McAuley’s beauty products line, Teazie Volume Styler features three rows of pins, each with four Volume Grooves, which can help you “go from flat to fabulous in seconds.” The company even claims it can make you like you have 3X more hair!
Compared to other teasing combs that have just one row of teeth, Teazie Volume Styler has three full rows of anti-static, stainless steel pins. Why? So you’ll be able to get more volume, faster, but without damaging your hair. You’ll also find a tail end for the ability to section precisely, along with a non-slip grip for comfort.
Regardless of your hair type or length, Teazie Volume Styler works over three steps:
- Lightly hold a section of hair and raise it up and away from your scalp.
- Draw the Teazie Volume Styler down towards your scalp, and then remove.
- Repeat steps 1 and 2 wherever you like in order to maximize your hair’s volume and lift.
Sure, this all sounds great. But you’re here to find out: Does Teazie Volume Styler really work as well as the company claims? Is it less damaging to your hair? Is it worth giving a try?
Let’s get you some answers. First up? Is there anything else out there like Teazie Volume Styler?
Teazie Volume Styler vs. the Competition
Here’s a quick experiment: First, type the words “teasing comb” into any search engine. Then, take an up-close look at some of the results. What’s one of the first things you see? Many (perhaps even most) feature more than one row of teeth.
Granted, they might not all be designed exactly like Teazie Volume Styler, and they might not use stainless steel pins, but when it comes down to it, they all work basically the same (more about this next). What you’ll also find is that many of them are much less expensive than Teazie; you might even be able to find several options at local beauty stores!
In fact, the Teazie Styler appears to simply be a rebranded version of the One & Done Styler, also bearing Campbell McAuley’s endorsement.
What’s the point? From a design standpoint, Teazie’s specific combination of three rows and stainless steel pins appears to distinguish it from the competition. But in the real world, will this provide you with any tangible benefits?
Will Teazie Really Work? Will It Damage Your Hair?
Backcombing, more commonly known as teasing, involves “repeatedly combing the hair towards the scalp, causing the hair to tangle and knot up.” As it tangles and knots up, this creates temporarily volume.
Now, whether you’re using a product like Teazie or a more traditional teasing comb, the process works the same way. As you comb backwards, it “rubs against the scales of the hair's cuticle,” causing them to move away from the shaft.
But here’s the catch: Although this only provides temporary volume, the damage you do to your hair is permanent. And if you repeatedly tease your hair, it can become weak, brittle, and fall out (although there are some ways to minimize damage).
From this perspective, since Teazie works basically the same way as any other teasing comb, there doesn’t seem to be anything especially unique about it—or its three rows of pins—that would inflict less damage on your hair.
How about the price? Is that an edge Teazie Volume Styler has on the competition?
Will You Be Delighted With Teazie’s Price?
One Teazie styling comb will cost you $14.99 plus $6.99 S&H. Want a second one? You can purchase another at checkout for an additional $6.99 S&H.
With each Teazie, you’ll also receive the Teazie Style Guide, Finishing Spray, and a 60-day money back guarantee, less S&H charges. Thinking about the BOGO offer? Keep in mind that you could lose more in S&H charges than you’ll get as a refund if you’re not satisfied!
At any rate, you can reach Tristar Products’ customer service department at 973-287-5166.

The Online Scoop About Teazie’s Manufacturer
Among all the As Seen on TV companies, Tristar Products undoubtedly ranks somewhere near the very top. They’ve been in business for years, and have manufactured some very popular products, including Clear TV, Power Pressure Cooker XL, Cami Shaper, and Fusion Juicer. Are they good?
Hundreds of HighYa readers have written about their experiences with Tristar’s products, and on average they have about a 1.5-star rating. Why? From a product perspective, most complaints seem to revolve around failure to work as advertised and poor quality. From a company perspective, a lot of customers complain about less-than-stellar service experiences, although the company had an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau at the time of our research.
Now, here’s the big question: Does this necessarily mean you’ll experience the same with the Teazie Volume Styler? Of course not. But do we think it’s something you should keep in mind when placing your order? Certainly.
Is Teazie a “Big, Bold, Beautiful” Product, Or Should You Pass?
Look, teasing combs are teasing combs. Sure, we could see Teazie’s non-slip grip being helpful when your hands are messy, but we’re just not convinced that its three rows of pins (or the fact that they’re made of stainless steel) will necessarily add any value.
This, along with the fact that—even if you just purchased one Teazie—you’d still lose money by the time you shipped in back to the company if you weren’t happy. Considering the huge number of teasing combs you can find locally, we’re just not sure it’s worth the risk giving the Teazie Volume Styler a shot.
Finally, although Campbell McAuley seems to have a good reputation through his relationship with the Home Shopping Network, remember that just because something’s endorsed by a celebrity, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s worth your time or money.
