A few weeks back, Toni&Guy sent me three of their mini stylers from the Fashion Fix range to try out. They include an iron, a waver and a curler. All are smaller in size, so are perfect for traveling.I also love the bold colour accents on each and the fact that they heat up super quickly. Best of all, these tools each retail at a very affordable R399 (but are currently less 20% at Clicks). All perform just as well as a full-sized tool, but come in a super compact size.
Fashion Fix Curler R399 – BUY
I have to confess that if there’s one tool I’m usually flummoxed by, it’s a curling tong. I could never seem to achieve good curls, and using one always seemed to awkward. However, I actually found this one to be super easy to use. Best of all? It gives me the most glorious curls (you’ll see in the video below). I’ve been using it daily to give my wavy hair a bit more of a curl in places where my hair lies flat, and love how the curl actually lasts. Again, this tool has tourmaline plates that not only create gorgeous curls, but also minimizes frizz.
Fashion Fix Straightener R399 – BUY
I love this mini, compact straightener that brings you the performance of a full-sized tool in a super compact size. You can easily pop it into your handbag, and it’s the ideal tool for when you’re traveling and are short on space. It has 20mm ceramic tourmaline plates that heat up to 210 degrees celsius and is designed to protect your hair colour (perfect for a gal like me who colours her hair on the regular).
Fashion Fix Waver R399 – BUY
The waver creates gentle waves in the hair, similar to a crimper, but with more of a wave. I find it’s best to spray hair with a little hairspray (or mousse) after using it to add a some texture to the hair. It is probably the easiest of the three to use, but I’d suggest using it on blow-dried hair that has been partially straightened hair.
Tip: It’s imperative to use a heat protectant product on your hair when using any heated styling device. Heat protectant products add moisture to the hair while forming a protective barrier that reduces moisture loss when heat is applied to the hair. In addition, heat protectants smooth the hairs cuticle, making it less prone to frizzing.
