Teen-Flipped Side Ponytail | Easy Hairstyles

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!

    I am going to try this hairstyle tomorrow and I hope it works out fine because my hair is a medium length and I have done this hairstyle on my BFF before but her hair was super LONG! It only took like 30 sec.

    I’m 13 and did my hair like this today, and it looks great! The only problem is some of my hair wasnt long enough so I used a nice clip. It added some bling and held my hair in place!
