CARLIN: THE SIMPLEST SOLUTION FOR STYLING LONG HAIR.

"I love my long hair, but I am hair-challenged when it comes to styling. I love having a classy bun, but bobby pins kill my scalp. Went to work in a cute updo yesterday with Carlin. I left my Carlin overnight and woke up with these curls with no heat or chemicals. I felt like a million bucks!"  - Gizelle, Houston TX

CARLIN is a premium hair accessory that serves two functions simultaneously:

  • Carlin creates a beautiful updo [classic updo, French twist, princess bun] that is comfortable & secure all day. No bobby pins, fake hair, or hair tie needed!

  • Carlin creates beautiful soft curls without heat! The Carlin can be used solely to secure a beautiful bun that lasts through your workday, workouts, and evenings without coming loose.

  • Carlin can be used solely to secure a beautiful bun that lasts through your workday, workouts, and evenings without coming loose.

  • Each unit of Carlin is handmade with gold plated jewelry wire encased in premium cotton velveteen that grips without damaging your strands. Carlin is always comfortable even when sleeping or sitting against high-backed seat.

Carlin means pug in French.

Carlin was inspired by my pup, Otis. I adopted Otis from a rescue when he was 7 years old, and he was my silent business partner until his passing in July 2020 at age 19. When you shop at MIMI ARDEN, a portion of your purchase goes toward aiding our furry friends at rescue shelters.

 ABOUT US

"Growing up I was a clumsy kid with a lot of insecurities. So, I always looked for simpler ways to do things.  

I am no beauty expert, but what I am passionate about is creating ways to make a tedious task super simple. "  

- Mihoko aka MIMI

I was inspired to create The Carlin when I had to make the daily choice between waking up an hour earlier to make my hair presentable for work or get a much-needed extra hour of sleep. Most days that additional hour of sleep won the battle. Working a job that required a 6 a.m. arrival, finding the time required to do my hair before my two-hour commute to the office was nearly impossible. I desperately searched for ways to quickly get ready so I could maximize my sleep. I looked for versatile hairstyles I could do for a special occasion or wear to the office. A hairstyle that was classic and would not go out of style. I also wanted to have a great hairstyle without constantly styling my hair with heat, resulting in hair damage. Unable to meet that objective on my own, I looked high and low for a tool to create beautiful updos without much effort and time. After coming up empty-handed, I decided to create a solution of my own. After experimenting with hundreds of materials, I found a suitable mix of utility, durability, and sophistication that was needed to create a hair accessory that achieved all my intended objectives. I named the accessory “The Carlin” which means pug in French and it was named after my pug dog Otis. I adopted Otis from a pug rescue when he was 7 years old. He was my silent business partner until his passing in July 2020 at age 19.
