Cute Twistback Flip Under | Girls Hairstyles

September 15, 2010

What is fun about having posted so many cute and easy hairstyles on this site, is that you can use any combinations of past styles to create a new one!

Here is a hairstyle that incorporates concepts used in previous tutorials I have done. The end result is very cute…

Twistback Flip Under (Side)

This style incorporates a front-to-side twist as well as a side-ponytail flipunder. To vary the hair style a bit, you can use a French Front or a Reverse French Front instead of the front twist.  Oh, yes… and now you can watch the new tutorials in HD, if you wish!

For anyone looking to purchase a Topsy Tail, you can purchase one from the Amazon link in my left sidebar… or you can make your own with wire or a pipe cleaner (I will be posting a tutorial on how to do the latter in the next week).

Items Needed: Rat-tail comb, water spray bottle, one ponytail holder, Topsy Tail.

Time Requirement: 2-3 minutes.

Skill Level: Easy

Happy Hairdoing!

Flipped Half Ponytail | Easy Hairstyles

August 18, 2010

Here is another hairdo that can help satisfy the many requests for Back-to-School Hairstyles! It is perfectly simple, and literally only takes a minute or two to do (even for dads)!  In fact, many of our styles will make for great Back-to-School looks!

Flipped Half Ponytail

Funny enough, I filmed this hairstyle in early July and posted it on YouTube a few weeks ago. Many of you know that I just returned from Hawaii on vacation. While flying home, on the plane I watched “The Last Song” with Miley Cyrus. If you have seen the movie, released earlier this year, you will notice that Miley’s character wore this hairstyle during the funeral scene near the end of the film. I thought it looked just as cute on Miley as it does on my girls! I know you will like how easy this hairstyle is to do, and is is perfect for little girls, tweens, teens, and moms! Click below to view the hairstyle tutorial…

Items Required: Rat-tail comb, spray bottle, topsy-tail tool (if you do not want to use your fingers), 1 ponytail holder/band, accessory (if desired).

Time Requirement: 2-3 minutes.

Skill Level: Easy

Happy Hairdoing!

Teen-Flipped Side Ponytail | Easy Hairstyles

May 27, 2010

This is one of a few cute and easy hairstyles I have been seeing around a lot lately.  This hairdo I saw on a staffer at the GTU shoot a few weeks ago and it is super easy for those mornings when you literally only have a minute before rushing out the door.  Moms can use it, teens too, and even little girls!  This hair style  looks good with straight hair, and even better with somewhat curly hair and an accesory.  The example I show below is on my daughter’s straight hair…

Flipped Ponytail (Back)


Items Needed:
Brush, rat-tail comb (for the part), Topsy Tail, one large hairband, hairspray, accessories (as needed).

Time Requirement: 2 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Here is a view of the hairdo from the side…

And another from the front…

Some people have asked for more tutorials on how to use the Topsy Tail, and this one is a perfect example of how to use it. You can do this without the tool, by using your fingers to push the ponytail through… but the Topsy Tail does it effortlessly and without pain.

Happy Hairdoing!

Valentine's Day Hairstyle: Flip-Braided Heart

January 19, 2010

*Note from Mindy:  Yes, Valentine’s Day is coming up and since we had such a positive response to the heart hairstyles we posted last year, we are posting a few new ones this year and also some videos of the styles from last year!  Everyone is looking for heart hairstyles, so don’t be left out!

* ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ *

Flip-Braided Heart

This one is very popular, and very simple to do.  Many have asked for a video tutorial on how to use the Topsy Tail Tool to create flip-unders, so this one is for you!  If you do not have a Topsy Tail Tool, you can buy one from the Amazon link in the left sidbar (or you can just bend a hanger to do the trick, although it may pull your daughter’s hair more than the Topsy Tail).  To see the photo tutorial for this hairdo from last year, please visit Valentine’s Day Hairdo #1, or simply view the video below.

Items Needed:  Comb, brush, hairspray, spray bottle, Topsy Tail tool, and 2 rubber bands.

Time Requirement: 5-7 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Check back again over the next few weeks for more cute Valentine’s Day videos and new holiday hairdos!

Enjoy, and Happy Hairdoing!
