About One & Done Styler
The One & Done Styler is a volumizing comb that’s claimed to add big volume to your hair with one pass and to provide an instant root lift, regardless of hairstyle or type.
In order to accomplish this, the One & Done Volume Styler is claimed to feature four rows of specially angled, precisely spaced, anti-static stainless steel pins that provide “explosive volume” without heat, tangling, or damage, which works over 3 simple steps:
- Hold you hair at the midway point.
- Draw the One & Done Styler to your scalp.
- Smooth your hair, all in just 15 seconds.
In addition, One & Done also features a narrow tail that can be used to section, separate, and part your hair, as well as a non-slip grip handle.
Don’t you wish your hair always looked full-bodied and glamorous? Don’t we all! But if you’re looking for a little pick me up, whether in the morning when getting ready or in the afternoon before an important meeting, will the One & Done Styler provide damage-free lift, or is it a waste of money?
First, let’s take a closer look at how volumizing combs work.
How Do Volumizing Combs Work?
Although One & Done’s manufacturer might like you to believe that their volumizing comb is revolutionary, the fact of the matter is that the principle behind it has been used for decades (who can forget the huge hair of the 80s?).
This is something called backcombing (also known as “teasing,”) which, as the name might lead you to believe, simply involves combing your hair backwards. In other words, instead of combing your hair from root to tip, you move the comb from tip to root.
As you do this, you move the leading edge of your hair’s cuticles toward the scalp, which makes it stand away from the shaft and produces volume.
Sounds harmless. But is this actually the case?
Will the One & Done Styler Cause Hair Damage?
Despite the fact that One & Done’s manufacturer claims the volumizing comb won’t cause any damage, this might not be the case. Why?
Remember how we talked about cuticle movement in the previous section? Well, even after your hair has fallen flat and you’ve taken your evening shower, these hair cuticles never return to their previous place, and can eventually lead to weak, brittle hair with more than your fair share of split ends.
The good news is that there are some precautions you can take to prevent backcombing damage, such as making sure your hair is clean and dry, never using heat, and properly conditioning your hair.
With all of this in mind, is the One & Done Styler the only volumizing game in town, or do you have other options?
Other Volumizing Options
When it comes to volumizing options, you have a smorgasbord to choose from.
This includes combs and brushes in all shapes, sizes, and prices, which you can see for yourself by typing in the phrase “volumizing comb” or “volumizing tool” into your favorite search engine.
However, it doesn’t stop there, because you can also choose between thousands of volume-inducing products and treatments, such as shampoos, conditioners, gels, sprays, and more.
Because of the huge number of options, you’ll definitely want to speak with your professional stylist before making a purchase, since they’ll be able to provide advice based on your hair’s style, thickness, health, and so on.
Now that we know more about the Volume Styler and what kinds of results you can reasonably expect from using it, let’s talk about the company (and the personality) behind it.
Who Makes the One & Done? Who is Campbell McAuley?
The One & Done Volume Styler is manufactured by Tristar Products, one of the biggest companies within the “As Seen on TV” industry, who also makes Perfecter Fusion Styler, Power Pressure Cooker XL, Genie Bra, and many more.
Among hundreds of HighYa reader reviews, these products had an average rating of 2 stars, with common complaints citing failure to work as advertised (or at all), poor quality, and difficult customer service experiences. Granted, this doesn’t mean you’ll experience the same with One & Done Styler, although it’s worth keeping in mind.
From a celebrity standpoint, Campbell McAuley is an Australian-born stylist who has been a professional since the age of 16, and maintains an A-list roster of clients, including Rebecca Romijn, Clare Danes, Eva Mendes, Salma Hayek, and more. Campbell is also creator of his own line of beauty products name CM Celebrity Style.
One & Done Volume Styler Pricing & Refund Policy
1 One & Done Styler is priced at $10 plus $4.99 S&H, although you’ll also be able to purchase a second Volume Styler at checkout for an additional $4.99 S&H.
All One & Done Stylers come with a 60-day refund policy, less S&H charges. This means that if you take advantage of the BOGO offer, you could lose more in S&H charges than you’ll ultimately receive as a refund.
In order to request a refund, you’ll need to contact customer service at 973-287-5176.
Is the One & Done Styler Right for You?
When it comes down to it, we have little doubt that the One & Done Styler can provide your hair with some level of volume. Whether or not this would happen without tangling or causing damage though, remains to be seen.
However, with thousands upon thousands of volumizing tools and products available locally, it’s difficult to justify taking a leap of faith on One & Done’s steep, non-refundable S&H charges.
Considering this, we’d recommend speaking with your stylist before purchasing the One & Done Styler—or any other volumizing product, for that matter.
