Perfect Fishtail Plaits with Scunci Crisscrosser Tool

I must not be the only one who wears her long hair the same way day after day?!

I always see beautiful long hair styles floating around the net but I’ve always thrown them into the ‘too hard’ bucket.

Lo and behold, I received a press release for Scunci’s Crisscrosser tool in my inbox and I saw the opportunity to have a pretty and exciting hair style for once.

At first, it took some getting used to. Once you get the hang of it, it’s very quick and easy.

I took some dodgy pictures using my sister as a guinea pig for a quick tutorial.

1. Starting at the nape of the neck, divide the hair evenly into two and place each section through the side slots on the crisscrosser, positioning the waves behind your hair.

2. Using the thumb and forefinger, slide a small section of hair out from one opening, cross it over the front of the tool and place it into the opposite opening, moving it as deep into the opening as possible.

3. Repeat step 2, but take the section of hair from the other opening, cross it in front of the tool and move it deep into the new opening.

4. Alternate steps 2 and 3 down the entire length of hair, until a complete braid is formed. Secure braid with the provided scunci clear polybands.

What I figured out from going fishtail braid crazy for a week was

1. The thinner the sections are, the tighter the braid will be.

2. When moving the crisscrosser tool down the length of hair as you braid, don’t move it too far along.

Make The Perfect Bun With Scunci Bun Maker

I have always envied girls who always seemed to have the perfect bun on their head. Now, with Scunci, us mere mortals can also have the perfect bun with their Bun Maker.

First, what comes in the box – bun foam, No Damage elastic and 4xhair pins.

*Note – I couldn’t for the life of me figure out how to use the pins that came in the pack so resorted to Scunci Bobby Pins from their value pack (90pcs for $6.95)*

To demonstrate just how simple this is, I tried this on my sister who has (slightly longer) shoulder-length hair and has never been able to put her hair into a nice and perfect bun.This was done in 3 simple steps! THREE! I know..

PS My first ever pictorial…kind of.

1. Gather hair into a ponytail

2. Pull ponytail through hole in bun maker and slide it up to the ponytail base.

3. Spread hair over bun maker. Secure with bobby pins.

This was done in about 2 minutes – a rough job hence a rough looking bun but…it’s a bun! On my sister’s head! For the first time! Winning!
