Isn’t it great that the topsy tail has made a comeback? We’ve always loved topsy-tail hairstyles!

It’s a great tool for beginners who aren’t gifted in doing ponytails or French braided ponytails. Topsy tail is pretty easy to use and takes your ponytails to a whole new level of wow. And the best part?

It can be used on all hair types. 

Want to show your creative side with this little magical tool? Read below to learn how to use it and the different styles you can achieve with it.

How To Use A Topsy Tail

As mentioned, the topsy tail comes in junior and normal sizes. The junior or small size is best used when not styling so much hair, and the normal or big size is best used when styling a lot of hair.

To use the topsy tool, gather your hair into a pony of your choice – low pony, high pony, half up, or side pony- then secure your hair with an elastic. With the loop side up, insert the topsy tool through the ponytail (behind the elastic), place the hair through the loop, and pull the topsy tail down through the hair.  

What Can You Do With A Topsy Tail?

You can use this little tool to create a variety of ponytails and braids. With a little guidance and practice, you can use it to tie,  wrap, twirl, or flip your hair. You can even use it to make fishtail and French tail braids. 

Best Topsy Tail Hairstyles

Because of how versatile the topsy tail is, you can use it to recreate some of your best childhood hairstyles but with a more trendy and modern vibe. You can also create as many variations of the ponytail as your imagination allows with this little tool. There are as many topsy styles as possible to suit your hair type and hair length and to fit any occasion.
