Instyler global artist Franco Della Graza possesses the kind of charm that would make a grandmother blush. Commanding the room with his fabulous, albeit difficult to place accent (hint, it’s a mash-up: English, with a smattering of Australian twang) it is easy to see how he is the natural choice to bring Instyler into its next generation on QVC.
Within minutes, Della Graza simplifies his 35 years of styling experience into something that every gal can achieve at home via a graceful swoop with the Instyler Max, or a quick turn with the Instyler Tuilp.
And yes, every woman needs one… Meaning one of each of Instyler’s stars: two ultra compact tools that give a one step, salon quality blowout, big bouncy waves, and no fuss, long lasting, perfect curls? Absolutely, positively, yes please!
But, what women really want is for him to be packaged and shipped to their doorstep too.
Lucky for the ladies, Examiner managed to catch Mr. Della Graza on his holiday from the salon, and convinced him to share a smidge of winter joy.
EXAMINER: Which winter holidays do you celebrate? How do you celebrate them?
FRANCO: I celebrate winter holidays in Australia. Currently, I am writing this email while sitting on the beach. I love a warm Christmas with shrimps on the Barbie.
EXAMINER: Please share your favorite holiday memory.
FRANCO: The first Xmas my kids spent in Melbourne , Australia. Where I was born.
EXAMINER: What is the best gift you ever received?
FRANCO: Nothing beats being a dad.
EXAMINER: You are creating gift bags for your annual holiday bash, what goes into it?
FRANCO: A Tulip from Instyler. And some of my new magic potion.
EXAMINER: How is the Tulip different from a regular curling iron?
FRANCO: It gives the everyday woman style control. It creates the perfect lasting curl by taking advantage of different heat settings for different curls. And, it has a heat guard that protects the skin but also allows you to get in close.
EXAMINER: You have 15 minutes to get ready for a holiday soriee, what do you do?
FRANCO: Put on a black suit.
EXAMINER: What have you learned this year that other people could benefit from?
FRANCO: Family is the most important thing in life. Forgive and forget– cherish the time you have with loved ones. I recently lost my number one fan: my Mum. You can never replace that.
In the spirit of holiday giving, Instyler is partnering with Examiner Alice An to offer a giveaway. Swing by Made (Up) in NY to enter to win a Instyler Tulip and stay tuned, a new giveaway will be posted every day leading up to December 25th.
