Review: Goody Simple Styles

Goody Simple Styles

I had long wanted to try the Goody Simple Styles hair products, so when I heard that they were finally going to available in the UK back in August I rushed out to buy them. I didn’t bother with the Volume Boost Comb (shown here as the free gift) as I already have a Bumpit, but I grabbed the Modern Updo Maker, the Spin Pins and the Pony Pouf Clip and rushed home to try them out.

I am very impressed with the Spin Pins – they do exactly as they say they will and hold a bun in place in my hair with just the two of them.

Try as I might I couldn’t get the Modern Updo Maker to stay in. I have watched countless tutorials on You Tube and all the girls on there make it look really easy to use. I don’t think it is, but all people on You Tube can’t be wrong, can they? If you have used this successfully and have any tips, please let me know!

Sadly I also found the Pony Pouf Clip next to useless. Sure, it clips my hair back but I can’t for the life of me get any bits to ‘pouf’ up using the slots in the clip. Again, it might just be me and if you know how to use it, let me know.

All four products are available in the UK at ASDA.


  1. I have one of the Volume Boost Combs, which you've just reminded me to do a review of: it's OK - doesn't create nearly as much volume as the Bumpit (if you have thick hair anyway, I doubt you'd notice it), but I guess it's OK if you just want to create a little bit of volume. I also create a "pouffy" ponytail using my hair screws, which are the same as the Goody ones, as far as I can tell: I just tie the pony tail normally then screw a couple of the clips into the base of it - really easy, but it does get a bit painful after a while!

  2. I'll have to try the poufy ponytail with hair screws, hadn't thought of that!
