One tool. Three barrels. Endless styling possibilities. Three easily interchangeable barrels put countless looks at your fingertips. Effortlessly create playful beachy waves, perfectly defined spiral curls or full bodied glamour waves-and everything in between. With T3 Tourmaline SinglePass Technology and five heat settings, the Whirl Trio powers healthy, versatile styling for all hair types.

T3 SinglePass Technology: Digital heating technology so advanced, it takes the conventional styling iron into the realm of artificial intelligence. Regular irons test their barrel temperatures in intervals, causing heat fluctuation, hot spots and damage due to over-styling. T3 SinglePass Irons have a microchip brain that constantly measures and adjusts the temperature across the entire barrel for accurate, consistent heat while styling. The result? A long-lasting, smooth and shiny finish that's totally damage-free in one quick pass.

Features & Benefits:

  • 1" Straight Barrel: For uniform spiral curls, perfect mermaid waves or defined waves & curls
  • 1.25"- 0.75" Tapered Barrel: For beachy waves, textured waves & curls, loose tousled curls or natural-looking waves
  • 1.5" Straight Barrel: For red carpet glamour waves, full-bodied waves, volume with bend or flipped ends
  • Tourmaline + Ceramic: Ionic and far infrared technology delivers a smooth and shiny finish without causing damage
  • Advanced Digital Heating System: Maintains consistent heat to style in one quick pass
  • 5 Heat Settings to 410 degrees F: To perfectly style all hair types and textures
  • Ceramic PTC Heater: Self regulates temperature to prevent over or under-heating
  • Precision Interlock System: Camera lens-inspired locking mechanism makes changing barrels fast, easy and secure
  • High Heat Resistant Glove: Made of the same high quality Meta Aramid Fiber used in firefighter suits for safe and fast styling from roots to ends
  • Cool Tip, Stand & Heat Resistant Mat: For fast, easy, effortless styling
  • Soft Travel Tote: Secures all parts for easy storage and travel
  • Auto World Voltage: Automatically adapts to any power supply around the world (plug adapter needed)
  • 8.5 ft. 360 degree Swivel Cord: Prevents cord from getting tangled or twisted
  • 1 Hour Auto Off: For worry-free styling
  • 2-Year Manufacturer's Warranty: Comprehensive coverage and support options






Press the power switch to turn the wand on. Lights will cascade up, then turn solid when the unit is ready to use. Choose the barrel size that suits your style, attach it to the base and lock it in place. Select the optimal heat setting for your hair type. Always start at a lower heat setting and work your way up if needed. To curl the right side of your head, hold the wand in your left hand and move it over the top of your head so the wand is facing down over your right shoulder. Wrap 1-2" sections of hair around the barrel with your right hand, hold, then release and move on to the next section. Wrap away from the face for voluminous waves, or towards the face for face-framing waves. Repeat on the opposite side when all pieces on the right side have been styled. Style hair using the glove for flawless, cascading waves from roots to ends, or style without the glove for a more natural, beachy look with unfinished ends.

Precautions: Wait for the barrel to cool before removing it. Using the included heat resistant glove, grasp the barrel with one hand and turn the barrel lock in the opposite direction to release the barrel.

Effective, convenient, and easy to travel with

Comments about T3 Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wand:

I bought this interchangeable wand when I had the 20% off coupon at Ulta, and I am so glad I did. I have been looking for a styling tool that is easy to use and hold the curls in my hair, and this is it! I like how the barrels are interchangeable, and it comes with a durable travel pouch that makes it easy to pack. The only issue that I have with this product is that the bulky cord sometimes drags the wand when it is weighed down.

      Comments about T3 Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wand:

      Let me first say the price taq on this, for me, was painful. I debated for a while before finally biting the bullet and while I still feel a smidge guilty spending so much on hair tools, its so worth it. I have always had curly, frizzy, unruly hair. It's soft, but the ends are a little rough and its so heavy, it's hard to get any real volume at the roots.

      First impression: The curler heats up very quickly, doesn't have a smell to it like some irons do. the first curl I did with the tapered wand was shiny, bouncy, and just felt substantial- like all of my hair that generally wants to go in all different directions was actually smoothed into one cohesive section. It didn't take long at all for my hair to curl, so I like that the heat damage is minimized. I used the second hottest setting because my hair can definitely take it and I think that will end up being the setting I'll use for the other attachments as well. I have not tried the other two curlers yet, but I am confident they'll be great.

      I have a feeling there will be a learning curve and it will take me a couple tries to find the technique that works best for my hair, but strictly speaking to the tool itself, it is amazing. I am so excited to work with it more and have the silky, shiny, bouncy curls I've always wanted.

      Comments about T3 Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wand:

      Okay, first the good. I enjoy the idea of interchangeable barrels. My curls hold well, but my curls also held well with other wands. Now the bad..... The smell of burnt hair is almost unbearable. I keep the heat setting on 3/5, and there's steam coming off my dry hair upon contact. I use product in my hair, and have found several users are having the same issue. This is my second weekend using the product, and the smell of my hair is unbearable. The first weekend I noticed the smell, I thought my hair was dirty/smelly from not washing for a few days since I typically wash my hair every night. This is not the case. My fiancé has been complaining about the smell all day. Please note, it took several washes before the smell went away. I'm upset that I spent almost $300 on a product that's burning my hair. I recommend investing in a cheaper product that does not burn your hair.

      My hair use to stay curled all day and recently it started to just fall out of the curl so I wanted to try this wand for a long time now and I'm so happy I did! Very expensive yes, but I will be having it for a long time! I'd recommend!!

        Comments about T3 Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wand:

        I got this as a gift. I burnt my hand on the 1st try (because I wasn't using the thermal protection styling glove included) so, I would suggest newbies experimenting on handling it while its 0FF (if you want to style With0ut the glove) to get accustomed to handling it. (BTW: it gets 'Uber' HOT -- Really FAST). Since I'm not left-handed, I fumbled and got a slight burn when attempting to style the left side of my head, but it just took a few takes to get accustomed to using the glove when styling. (I'm more accustomed to using the traditional (wand clip) style iron). Overall, the results are great! I especially L♥ve how it makes me look like an 'eternal' model (especially @ MY age) ;->

          This wand heats up super fast and holds curl all day! It is pricey, but so worth it! I've only used the 1" setting so far, but I am looking forward to trying the others to get different looks!

          How much?

          By SNP

          from Amerika

          Comments about T3 Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wand:

          I normally wear my hair in its naturally curly state, leaving the coloring and straightening to my professional hair stylist. I bought this while out of town, I couldn't remember the last time I had used my flat iron, and I didn't trust the heat settings. Not willing to risk heat damage, I decided to visit the Ulta near my hotel. I was shocked at how much styling tools cost and purchased this trio because it was the most bang for my buck. Three curling irons in one and I can easily add or replace barrels if needed. For the win!

          Using the styling wands takes some getting used to but they create beautiful waves/curls that last for days. I was skeptical that curls would hold for days in my Nubian hair but they do. As an added bonus, I don't have to worry about heat damage with this technology. The highest heat setting I use is the third setting. I've since purchased the 1" clip barrel, the 1" luxe flat iron and the featherweight luxe 2i dryer.

            Every time I curl my hair, I have to straighten it because of my hair type. My hair is extremely frizzy and wavy, so problem is my roots. Will this help defrizz my hair so I can just curl it instead?

              A:

              Our recommendation is to brush and detangle the hair before using the hot tool, and section the hair while you style. Our barrels are enhanced with a tourmaline + ceramic surface that will help smooth hair cuticle and reduce frizz. Thank you!

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              To enter the temperature adjustment mode you will need to double-click the button first. As soon as the lights begin to flash, begin pressing the button slowly and deliberately to cycle through the temperature options. Once you've reached the desired temperature setting, release the button. The lights will begin cascading up or down to your new setting, then turn solid when the iron is ready to use again.

            I'm having trouble choosing between the Whirl Trio & the T3 Twirl 360, does anyone know which would be easier (or better) for a beginner with little curling experience?
            Asked on 3/18/2016 by Cleoh from Sacramento, CA

            1 answer

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              Both tools are simple for beginners to use; however, each uses a different curling technique and you may be more comfortable with one vs. the other. I would suggest taking a look at the styling videos for each product to see if one technique might be easier for you to execute. However, because the Twirl 360 can be used with one hand (the Whirl Trio requires two hands) it will likely be easier once you're acclimated yourself to the auto-rotation function. It was specifically designed to make curling easier.
