Features of the T3 Whirl Trio

The T3 Whirl Trio is different from other curling tools because you can choose what look you want to create. With the three barrels included in the set, you can choose from playful beachy waves, uniform spiral curls, or soft loose waves. You also have the creative freedom to mix and match the different types of curls and waves you create all in the same hairstyle.

Ease Of Use: As with all curling wands, there is a bit of a learning curve to using the T3 Whirl Trio. Luckily this set comes with a heat protectant glove that you can wear on one hand so if you accidentally touch the wand it will not burn you. Once you get the hang of the curling wand technique, this tool is easy to use. Exchanging wands is also incredibly easy to do which is another nice feature. Just be careful when styling your hair that you do not accidentally bump the power button!

Durability: This curling wand set is made out of custom blend ceramic so you know that the wand itself and it’s attachments will withstand the test of time. Remember to clean it frequently if you choose to use hairspray on your hair while styling to avoid product buildup on the tools.

Heat Output: This Trio includes a microchip that ensures even heat distribution through the entire curling wand. In addition, the T3 Whirl Trio is made with Single-pass technology so that it distributes enough heat that you only need to curl each strand once in order for the curls to hold. 5/5.

Price: The price is on the more luxury end for a hair styling tool. However, the consumer must remember that you are actually purchasing three different styling tools all at once. With that being said, there are other comparable alternatives available for a cheaper price.

Options (settings): The options are endless with this tool since you can attach/detach the different barrels. In addition to the barrels that come with the curling wand itself, you can purchase additional barrels separately so you can create even more unique looks.

The heat settings are adjustable and range from 260 degrees Fahrenheit to 410 degrees Fahrenheit. The wand also has a one-hour auto shut off feature so you will not have to worry if you forget to unplug it on your way out the door in the morning. Lastly, the cord is 9 feet long and features a 360-degree swivel so you can easily reach all angles of your hair to style it.

Power: The Whirl Trio features auto world voltage (100-240V) so you can use it anywhere in the world as long as you have the correct power adaptor.

Is The T3 Whirl Trio Any Good?

Good for All Hair Types

The T3 Whirl Trio allows you to have complete control over the heat settings which is a major win because it allows you to customize the amount of heat for your specific hair type.

Once you figure out the right heat setting to make your hair hold a curl (without frying it) you will be impressed with how long the curls last in your hair. If you set your curls with a styling product like a light misting of your favorite hair spray, you may be able to sleep on them and rock a tousled look the next day!

Great for People on the Go

Since the T3 Whirl Trio comes with three wands, you can pick whichever wand you have time for in the morning. If you are looking to put a light wave in your hair you can choose the larger barrel and add a few waves and be out the door. If you have more time, you can section your hair into smaller parts and use one of the smaller barrels to create a more polished look. Another perk for those who are always in a hurry is that the wand heats up (and cools down for that matter) really fast!

Easy to Travel With

Since the T3 Whirl Trio comes with a quality carrying bag, it is super convenient to travel with. Not to mention the fact that you can pack the one wand and multiple attachments and save room in your suitcase for other things because you do not have to pack multiple styling tools!

How Does it Compare?

T3 Whirl Trio vs. Dyson Airwrap

The Dyson Airwrap is another one of our favorite hair styling products. When comparing these two styling tools, the obvious advantage that the Dyson Airwrap has over the T3 Whirl Trio is that the Airwrap actually dries your hair while it styles it. This is a perk if you are always in a hurry. Another perk of the Airwrap is that it does not damage your hair with the amount of heat applied. The Airwrap is perfect for someone who is looking for a product that will dry their hair and give them a “blowout” look without the use of an additional styling tool. However, you cannot get the same amount of customizability in your curls with the Dyson Airwrap that you can with the T3 Whirl Trio. The T3 Whirl Trio is perfect for someone who likes to use an iron to curl their hair and wants the customizability of different barrels. Another perk of the T3 Whirl Trio is that it is more affordable than the Dyson Airwrap.

T3 Whirl Trio vs. Beachwaver Pro 1 Styling Wand

Beachwaver Curling Iron, Curling Wand, Rotating

The Beachwaver Pro 1 Styling Wand comes in at a lower price than the T3 Whirl Trio, but you do not have the option to switch barrels with the Beachwaver wand. The Beachwaver Pro 1 Styling Wand is great for someone that still likes to use a clamp as opposed to simply wrapping their hair around the barrel. This wand is also great for the person who likes the tool to do the work for them. The Beachwaver actually wraps the hair around the barrel and you push a button to tell it when to stop. This is great for someone who likes a streamlined hairstyling process, but not so great for those who like complete control over their hairstyle. The T3 Whirl Trio, on the other hand, allows you to switch barrels and control the way you are wrapping the hair on the barrel.

T3 Whirl Trio vs. GHD Curve

GHD Curve Classic Curl Iron

The GHD Curve is a 1 1/4″ large barrel that you can use to create voluminous curls in your hair. This product would be great for someone who likes the look of big and bouncy curls. The downfall of this product is that it would be difficult to use these tools to put tight ringlets in your hair. It also may not be the best curling iron for those whose hair does not like to hold curl since it is such a big barrel. The T3 is just slightly more expensive than the GHD Curve. The GHD Curve only heats up to 356 degrees Fahrenheit whereas the T3 Whirl Trio heats up to 410 degrees Fahrenheit, which may be a selling point if your hair requires a lot of heat to make the curls hold.

Our Thoughts

Overall, the T3 Whirl Trio is a great tool if you are looking for a curling wand set with multiple barrels, a wide variety of heat settings, and is easy to travel with. This set allows you to create an unlimited number of custom curled or wavy looks in record amounts of time. Look no further for your next hair tool purchase!
