Exactly one month and two days ago, I placed an online order for one pair of Secret Bangs™, a product which Kristin Cavallari has endorsed on social media and in an infomercial. Secret Bangs™ are synthetic bangs attached to a headband (the secret). They cost $29.99 per pair and look like this:

When I ordered the Secret Bangs™ (shade: dark blonde) last month, I received a confirmation email but no estimate as to when the Bangs would ship. Today, I emailed the Secret Bangs™ customer service department to inquire about the status of my order. Minutes later, I received this response:


We are in backorder due to significant orders and we cancelled any outstanding orders that were not filled. You were not charged as we only charge when we ship the product.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

On Demand Direct Response is a marketing company that works with TV-marketed products. Jeffrey A. Miller is a lawyer. My Secret Bangs™ order was canceled without my knowledge.

I have emailed Jeffrey to ask when Secret Bangs™ will be available for purchase again and will update if I hear back. I also asked whether or not Kristin is still the official spokesperson for Secret Bangs™, as her image is no longer prominently featured on SecretBangs.com.

Did Secret Bangs™ ever really exist?

(That’s a question I just asked God.)

This has been 500 Days of Kristin.
