Stylish hair made simple with Toni & Guy’s Fashion Fix range

*Sponsored by Toni & Guy

I recently cut my hair, and my new shorter ‘do has opened up so many doors for me style-wise. Even though it’s not the first time I’ve worn my hair in a chin-length bob, I find that I’m a whole lot more adventurous when it comes to playing around with my hair and experimenting with new styles.

Whereas I used to stick to using my flatiron to ensure that my bob was smooth, sleek, and dead-straight, these days I find myself opting for a softer, more tousled look. Up until recently, I used my flatiron to create waves, but I’ve found a much better alternative – that happens to be impossibly chic and really easy on the pocket, too. Meet Toni & Guy’s super-stylish (and really affordable) Fashion Fix range, which is made up of three nifty, handbag-sized stylers that allow you to recreate styles worthy of the catwalk in a flash. (Scroll down to the bottom of this post for a chance to win all three!)

When I first received these stylers, I was a bit worried about how well they would perform, given their compact size. I needn’t have worried: although these beauties are petite in size, they definitely deliver on both personality and performance. Each styler heats up to 210 degrees Celsius (and they heat up really quickly, which is a huge bonus if your mornings are as fast and chaotic as mine), and boast Colour-Lock Technology to ensure that your hair (and your colour) is kept looking its healthy, vibrant best.

Since I’ve been using a flatiron for years and know how to style my hair using one with ease, I thought I’d get started by putting the Toni & Guy Fashion Fix Straightener (R399) to the test. I loved how quickly this iron heated up (no waiting around for the plates to heat up properly – it was ready to style within a matter of seconds), and the narrow, Ceramic-Tourmaline plates meant that straightening my fringe was an absolute breeze! It might be small, but it managed to get the same sleek results as my full-sized flatiron making it the perfect travel companion.

Now for something that I’ve never tried before, but couldn’t wait to put through its paces: the Toni & Guy Fashion Fix Waver (R399), which was designed to give you relaxed, natural-looking beach waves and loads of volume… and it definitely did that! I wasn’t sure that the waver would work in my chin-length bob, but after playing around a couple of times, I managed to figure out how best to use this for my short hair. (I left the bottom section of my hair natural, and only used the waver on the top sections for more defined waves and to keep the volume under control – this thing seriously delivers on oomph, you guys!) It’s also really quick and easy to use, so it’s perfect for rushed mornings when I don’t have time to do something that requires a little more effort.

By far my favourite of the three tools (though picking a favourite is a bit like picking a favourite child) is the Toni & Guy Fashion Fix Curler (R399), which is the first curler I’ve managed to master – without burning my neck. Thank you, Toni & Guy! Again, I wondered whether this tool would work for my shorter hair, but there really was no need for concern – the 25mm barrel is ideal for use on shorter hair, while still creating natural-looking waves (no super-tight, poodle-esque curls in sight!) The curler is incredibly easy to use, and you can create different effects depending on how many times (or how tightly) you wind your hair around the barrel.

The Toni & Guy Fashion Fix range has definitely upped my hair styling game, in more ways than one: not only do they help me create effortlessly gorgeous styles, but they look pretty stylish themselves! I’ve said it before, but it warrants repeating: I love the small, compact sizes of each styler. They’re great for use on shorter hair, and it also means that I don’t have to choose just one styler next time I go on holiday – I can pack all three! (You can also pop one into your handbag to freshen up your style between meetings or before heading out for after-work drinks).

Now I don’t know about you, but R399 for an incredible, hard-working hair tool is a steal in my book, but Clicks’ is currently offering you 20% off all three stylers – which means that you’ll pay no more than R319 per styler if you buy yours before 10 April 2018. Go and get ’em, girls!

    Ooh, I love the smaller size of these. I could do with the flatiron, but wonder what the Fashion Fix Curler could do to complement my already wavy hair. Holding thumbs!

    • Well hopefully you win, because then you can have both! Thanks for entering, Emily – good luck to you!

  • Neelofah Heuvel

    Without a doubt the Fashion Fix Waver as I’m trying to embrace my natural hair but it looks a damn mess (and we’re not talking a hot damn mess here haha) so this will take me from a no-no to a go-go 😎

    • The waver is such a handy little tool! I know what you mean, though – my hair also has a natural wave to it, but it’s definitely NOT the kind of wave you want! Thanks for entering, Neelofah – and good luck!

  • Jessica

    I’d love to get my hands on the Fashion Fix Waver! I feel like I can’t ever create the perfect beach curls! This styler looks like it’ll do the job PERFECTLY & from what I have read, it does!

  • Kim Muller

    I’d love to try the Fashion Fix Waver!

    Do you know if these irons would work on longer hair the same way as a normal sized iron would?

    • They definitely do – several other bloggers have also written about them, and they all have longer hair (see Leigh from Lipgloss is my Life’s post, and Candice-Lee from In My Bag’s post). Thanks for entering, and good luck, Kim! xxx

    I’ve recently started playing around with curling & waving my hair and it’s a fail more times than not. I’ve burned my face this past weekend!

  • Sabrina Mortimer

    Definitely the fashion fix curler- my hair is that awkward in between straight and curly, so I always straighten it (it’s quicker and easier) but it would be great to curl it for a change!

  • Cathi Trevor

    Love your article my friend – I always think of you whipping a ghd through your hair with expertise in hotel rooms before we’d go down to a beauty launch or breakfast!! (We’d inevitably be a little late but it didn’t matter heehee!!)

    I’ve recently also joined the shorter bob hair club and would love to do experiment with the Fashion Fix Waver purleeeez. All shared and loved and adored and going insane because it’s mine! YaY!

  • I would definitely be keen to try the curler just because I am yet to master a curler but so desperately want to. It would also be great to have a travel size straightener at hand for hair emergencies (straight is always my go-to on a bad hair day).
    This is a lovely post and review of each styler.

  • Fatimah Limbada

    Fashion Fix Waver is calling my name!!! I love when my hair has texture and volume but I suck at doing it myself. A stylist taught me last year how to do beach waves with a straightener but I can just never get the beach waves look right. I end up looking like I just walked through a thorn bush…sigh (LOL!). I love gadgets that make life easier so this would be an awesome one!

  • Monique Salvarto
