mMy hair is straight as a pin but I’ve always got a straightener in my stash ‘cos I like to give my fringe a little flick. As far as a curling iron goes, that’s how I like to roll when I want to feel at my prettiest. This is what helps give my super fine hair a bit of volume and bounce. But here’s the dilemma – I’m off to Thailand soon and don’t want to drag both of my favourite (heavy) tools with me. And please don’t tell me I can make curls with a straightener. If you can do that you’re like a mutant or something because I’ve been trying to figure that out for years and still can’t get it right. It’s like a super power!
Anyway, the good hair gods have been kind to me because Toni&Guy’s new Style Fix travel-sized hair tools arrived the other day. (R319,00 each, exclusive to Clicks.) Like many of the good things in life, (Valium… your daddy’s credit card… ) they’re small enough to fit into your handbag! I also got to make friends with a new styling tool I’d never tried before – a waver!
But enough chatting, do you want to see what these baba’s can do? (Just a heads up, my video’s pacy as all hell so you don’t have to sit there wishing for death to alleviate you from the boredom of watching me style my hair three times. We’re all big girls here who know how to use a blerrie straightener. I hope. So don’t worry, tannie Leigh cuts to the chase for you, okay?)
A word about the waver. When you’ve just finished doing your hair you might look like Jan Van Riebeeck. Do not be afraid. Simply spritz a little de-tangling spray on your hair and then go over a few pieces again. Mess it up. Crimp again. Tousle. Crimp, crimp. Mess. Toss. And boom! Then you’re Whipper, the sexy judge from Ally McBeal. DOES ANYONE ELSE REMEMBER THAT CHARACTER?! Am I the only old person who does? A PR recently told me their fancy analysis machine said I’m the number one influencer with peeps aged between 16 and 25. Why are you children reading me? Don’t you have cool, young-person things to do?!
Anyway, getting back to the stylers. Each has a 1,8 metre long cord and worldwide voltage so they’re totes made to move (see how I threw ‘totes’ in there to be down with the kids? Do you guys still say that?) and I’m very glad to have them in my possession. You could too as I’ve also been given all three to give away to one lucky winner!
Entering is easy peasy. Simply tell me which of the tools is the one you’re most keen to try in the comments section below. You can also enter via Instagram and Facebook. (I’ll put up the details there too.) This competition is open to South Africans only and closes at 5pm on the 29th of April 2018.
Good luck girls!
This competition is now closed. A big congrats to winner Carol Tomlinson.
