Blogger Help: Where can I get the Topsy Tail ponytail maker in the UK?

When I was younger I used to own one of these:

which is the perfect tool for creating this ponytail look:

I went to Boots today expecting to find one, as this would be a perfect work-hairstyle for me at the moment, but alas, no topsy tail or anything remotely similar.

Have you seen this tool in any UK shops? Or bought this online somewhere?
Help very much appreciated, I neeeeeed it! :D

I am loving...

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant and Lip Protectant
Amazing little multi-talented product, how I adore thee...

This humble pot has at least 8 very useful purposes:

As an in-flight moisture boost to prevent your skin from drying out

Sweep over your legs after shaving or waxing to prevent dryness or irritation

Relieve minor cases of sunburn

For a perfectly shaped eyebrow arch, simply smooth brows into place with a dab of Eight Hour Cream

Save and protect your skin from drying sun, wind and minor skin irritations

It's the perfect antidote for rough heels and soles

Use on your eyelids, cheekbones and lips to give them a fresh, dewy glow

Add to dry cuticles to keep them soft, supple and perfectly manicured

I use my little pot for all of the above. Especially love how well it works to soften my heels and keeps my brows in place.

And I have always loved the lip balm - SPF15, moisturising and nourishing...can't ask for more :)

I love exploring new brands, and Kérastase is next on my list! I have been lusting after these hair products for absolutely aaaaages, but I am unsure of what to try first...?

I would love some recommendations or opinions on any of the products below (or other Kérastase favourites)  ;)
NUTRITIVE - For normal, to slightly dry hair - Bain Satin 1

NUTRITIVE - For normal, to slightly dry hair - Lait Vital

NUTRITIVE - For dry, rebellious hair - Bain Oléo-Relax
NUTRITIVE - For dry, thick and rebellious hair - Masque Oléo Relax Slim
REFLECTION - For highlighted or sensitised colour treated hair - Bain Chroma Riche
REFLECTION - For highlighted or sensitised colour treated hair - Masque Chroma Riche
RESISTANCE - For chemically or naturally weak hair - Bain de Force

RESISTANCE - For chemically or naturally weak hair - Ciment Anti-Usure

I have thick, slightly rebellious hair, which is also colour treated, so all of the above items should work for my hair, but I just don't know which ones to choose.

Do you use Kérastase? Can you recommend a product or two that has worked for you? :)

Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family.


Choose a fucking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers.


Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends.


Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose a three-piece suit on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics.


Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on Sunday morning.


Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth.


Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to replace yourselves.


Choose your future. Choose life...
