Blinger Hair Gems

Created by Angie Cella, a single mother of four, Blinger is a patented styling tool that effortlessly adds genuine crystals to one’s hair. The idea was born from a dream Angie had one night, envisioning a device that could bedazzle her hair with gems.

The journey to bring this dream to life was far from easy. Angie hired four different engineering firms over four years, but none could produce a viable prototype. Undeterred, she hired a fifth firm with the last of her savings, finally achieving a working prototype similar to the device Blinger offers today. However, she had exhausted her financial resources and faced rejection from every investor she approached.

With her children’s support, Angie made a significant sacrifice – she sold their home, downsized their belongings, and rented a townhome. This allowed her to fund the manufacturing of Blinger herself in China. Five months later, in October 2018, she showcased Blinger at the Dallas Toy Fair and the Women in Toys event in Texas, where it caught the attention of Walmart. By the end of the first day, Blinger was a hit, and it has since been distributed worldwide.

Blinger is more than just a business; it’s a testament to Angie’s profound faith and her belief that everyone has a God-given purpose. Throughout her career, she has dedicated herself to hard work, persistence, and motivating and supporting others to achieve their dreams.

One of Angie’s closest allies in this journey is her daughter, Cambria Cella, who serves as Blinger’s Social Media Manager and Chief of GSD (Getting Stuff Done). Cambria, a United States Army National Guard Military Police soldier, has been involved with Blinger since she was nine years old. She has witnessed firsthand the value of faith and hard work, and her role is to share God’s dream with the world through Blinger.

The Blinger product line is a true innovation in the hair accessory industry. The patented styling tool is the world’s only device that can effortlessly apply precision-cut glass crystals and lustrous pearls to the hair without heat, electricity, or harmful glues. The starter kits include the Blinger Styling Tool and an assortment of crystals, available in various collections like Radiance, Glam, and Diamond.

For those seeking a more portable option, Blinger offers the On The Go (Mini) Starter Kit, featuring a mini clip-on tool and a selection of rhinestones. This allows children and adults alike to add sparkle to their hair with ease.

The application process is simple yet ingenious. Users load the crystal discs onto the carousel of the Blinger tool, close the clear cover, and place a lock of hair into the opening. By squeezing the device firmly until it clicks, the gem is released and adheres to the hair. For updos or styled hair close to the head, the Blinger hair stage can be retracted, allowing direct application.

Removing the crystals is equally effortless – users simply brush them out or peel them off with their fingers. The crystals can be reused or repurposed as decorative elements, aligning with Blinger’s motto: “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Get creative!”
