Do you remember the tool from the '90s that could take your hair from drab to fabulous? Well, guess what? It's back. The Topsy Tail, once sold only through infomercials, is back on the market... only this time, we've all learned how to do it without the cheap plastic tool.

Of course, the Topsy Tail could use a little work to bring it up to speed with the rest of the style and fashion of this decade. Want to incorporate the topsy into your next hairstyle? Here are a few options.

1

Fun updo

Create an elegant updo, perfect for a night out with the girls or a fancy date night with your man. You simply pull back front sections of your hair with a slight twist, pull them into a ponytail and topsy tail it. Then make a bun with the remaining hair.

Cute curls

Keep it simple and classic with loose curls and a topsy. This is perfect for an outdoor wedding or brunch with friends. All you have to do is pull your hair half up and do a topsy tail. Hint: Use a hair tie that matches the hair color or cover it up with a cute accessory.

Lovely loops

And if you feel like a topsy expert, add more loops. To achieve this look, you just keep pulling back small sections of your hair and keep doing a topsy. This style would be great to get your hair off your neck and keep it in place during a run.
