/bo͝oklē/ What's in a name?
In our case, quite a lot actually. It comes from two places that are important to us: France and Bulgaria. In French bouclés simply means curls. It is equally inspired by the Bulgarian meaning of букли; the confidence boost you feel when your hair looks amazing.
We want you to feel this everyday.
What's Our Story?
Bukli started with a personal need and a passion for styling hair. Founder Elitza Voeva-Kolev took an interest in curling her hair from a young age growing up in Bulgaria. Little did she know that adulthood would mean big changes, including finding the time to use a curling iron. She came to the US when she was 19 years old to earn undergraduate and graduate degrees in engineering. In her early 30s, while balancing a full-time job and a newborn daughter, she recognized these electric styling tools were more than time-consuming. Years of application began to cause noticeable damage to her hair. Traditional curlers proved to be an inadequate alternative. Those on the market featured outdated designs that produced bottom-heavy and unappealing curls. Putting her engineering background to use, Elitza designed a new set of curlers for herself. From this innovation, Bukli was born.
Elitza’s brand achieves modern curls with minimal time and no damage. With Bukli, everyone can accomplish hairstyling perfection on their own – through a simplified hair routine that takes as little work as possible. Never feel tied to an electric-corded styling tool again!
Bukli constantly pursues game-changing new ideas to make sure you get the best from your hair. We are continuously growing, innovating and improving. We provide you with high quality and innovative styling tools which will simplify your hair routine.
We have kicked the traditional way of curling to the curb by introducing Bukli curlers; tools that will help you avoid the damage that heat and rigid tools do to your hair.
Bukli was founded on a necessity. A need to have your perfect curls (whatever perfect is to you) without sacrificing your time or damaging your hair.
One of our most important values is convenience; making beautiful hair as easy and as efficient as possible for you and fitting it in around the rest of your life. Bukli simplifies your hair routine, saves you time, provides you with an enjoyable hair experience and, most importantly, gives you (really) good hair.
