Ever since I got my hair cut I've been struggling to think of new ways to style my shorter locks! So it was perfect timing when I was sent over these Scunci hair styling tools. I'm also pretty low-maintenance when it comes to hair (code word for lazy, interpret it however you want! ;P) so I'm not interested in fancy, time-consuming methods that involve a lot of hair product either. I got the Scunci TopsyTail tool to create a few new simple hairstyles for everyday wear, and the Scunci Perfect Pony tool to add volume and lift to my ponytails.
The TopsyTail pack comes with a helpful pamphlet to creating different hairstyles with the tools provided! Includes the TopsyTail, TopsyTail Junior, and some elastics.
The pamphlet also features 3 new hair styling suggestions using the TopsyTail Junior, which I didn't get to try out yet.
- Gather hair into a low ponytail and secure with the elastic provided.
- Place the TopsyTail behind the elastic, and thread hair through the loop.
- Slowly pull the TopsyTail tool down.
Using a mirror like this will help show you how your hair looks from the back.
I like this look because it's an elegant and trendier twist to the ordinary low ponytail style. It hides the elastic, and I like the polished look it creates for the side profile as well.
much more under the link!
- Gather the top and sides of hair and tie into ponytail, with the elastic provided.
- Place the TopsyTail behind the elastic.
- Thread the ponytail through the loop.
- Pull the TopsyTail down slowly.
This is also a great casual look when your hair looks a bit unruly and messy, but you still want it to be out. Gathering a bit of hair to the back, creates a cleaner look instantly.
The Perfect Pony Tool may not look like much, but its actually meant to be hidden inside your hair so it's supposed to be inconspicuous and small! ;)
- Separate top section of hair from bottom.
- Place the Perfect Pony tool underneath top section of hair. Make sure it's angled down.
- Gather all the remaining hair around the Perfect Pony, securing it with the elastic provided.
It did actually take me a while to get the hang of this, but once you do it's so worth it! As you can tell in the pictures above, there was a noticeable amount of extra bounce and volume in my ponytail. The Perfect Pony tool was perfectly covered by my hair. Throughout the day (or even after just an hour!) my high ponytails always tend to sag down. However with the Perfect Pony in, my ponytail was in that position the whole time. I even jogged for 40 minutes with it in, and my ponytail was still high and secure.
There are heaps of other useful hair styling tools by Scunci, which help you create beautiful buns, French twists, and more. I didn't get those products as those hairstyles aren't really my thing- but back at my Year 10 formal when I did my hair up, they would've definitely come in handy! You can check out the entire range of Scunci products here.
The Scunci styling tools can be found for $9.95 at Target, Big W and Priceline.
Overall, I would recommend the Scunci TopsyTail tool to anyone who wants to create quick and easy hair styles for everyday wear. My favourite is the TopsyTail 'basic style' as it adds an elegant and trendy touch to the basic low ponytail, whilst covering the elastic band. I know you can also create this style yourself without the tool, but using the tool makes it neater and easier.
I would definitely also recommend the Scunci Perfect Pony tool! The high ponytail is one of the most convenient and versatile hairstyle for any situation- casual outings, work, and gym- and this tool is sooo useful in providing that extra lift and volume to make it look more attractive, as well as preventing it from sagging and saving time re-tying it :)
