When deciding on what you will do this year for your Halloween costume, you should seriously consider getting your glow on with Glowbys! Not only do they have a very inexpensive price point, they are also amazingly awesome!
Glowbys are fiber optic hair extensions that are winning the world over. Not only has Taylor Swift worn them in concert, but they've also been featured in the extreme beauty reality competition Battle of the Strands. Glowbys parent company, Luminence, has also been featured on The Voice by way of their crystal hair tresses.
This beauty examiner right here decided to go straight to the source of fiber optic brilliance. Below is what Owner, Chris Bonang, had to say about his uniquely affordable inventions.
1- What inspired you to start your company?
A girl at a concert was wearing Christmas tree lights around her; it looked pretty cool, but very cumbersome with the battery pack attached. A girlfriend said “something like that, but smaller, and in your hair would be awesome”. I knew I could do something like that with fiber optics, so I made some prototypes. Everyone loved them and Glowbys were born!
2- What are two or three of the coolest things you've seen done with your product?
Selling over a million Glowbys. Also having Taylor Swift wear them in concert was amazing. The flexibility has allowed stylists to style them into girls hair in hundreds of different cool ways.
3- What can we expect from your company in the future?
Various new fiber optic products, many not hair-related (party supplies, etc), as well as improvements and variations of the Glowbys.
4- Since Glowbys are clip on hair extensions, can you cut them to change their length or shape?
You can cut them to any length. The end of the fiber lights up. They can be styled into the hair in almost any arrangement with bobby pins, etc. When cutting them, remember to do it at a 45 degree angle so they stay their brightest.
5- What other items do you make? I've heard kids also like your products. Please explain.
Crystal Tress Swarovski crystal hair extensions.
Bottlebeams fiber optic lights for wine and champagne bottles. They're excellent for wedding receptions.
The Lumi-Whip is perfect for Halloween and is almost 3 ft long. They're currently on sale as well.
Handlebeams fiber optic bike handle streamers. They also work for scooters and skateboards.
Starting as low as $3.99 per extension, get your glow on this Halloween! Did we mention that each Glowby comes with a battery already installed and can last up to half a day? Also, since they are reusable, don't forget an extra battery pack for all your fun needs. Make it one for the memory books, friends! No one will ever forget it.
