Using a Topsy Tail

The girls and I had a special package in the mail this week. We ordered a topsy tail tool for doing different hairstyles. I could kind of do it with my fingers, but it hurt and didn't look super smooth. I remember when the topsy tail tool came out I thought about getting one. I had to wait about twenty years until I had a couple of girly-girl daughters who liked fancy hairstyles.

We've been having fun trying it out, and I wanted to encourage you if you have a daughter you might enjoy one of these tools.

So here's what we did tonight. The idea came from here. I didn't exactly follow the pattern.

 Basically this tool allows you to pull a ponytail through itself.
First I finished it off with a rope braid, but my daughters didn't like the way that looked so we took it out.

What do you think? Have you ever used a topsy tail tool?


  1. I think we have had one - we might need to get another one - the styles are so pretty.
    Now - more importantly - have you changed the name of your blog? And are you impressed that I noticed? ;)

  2. Yes, get one. It opens up so many more styles. You are good. :)

  3. I've never heard of this but it does look good!

    1. You can find them very inexpensively on Amazon.
