Flipped Ends | Layered Hairstyles

Although the focus of our tutorials is on doing cute hairstyles on my girls, you can still do all the styles on yourself as well. More and more, we receive questions on how  I do my own hair in the videos we film. My goal is to include more of these self hairstyles from time to time.

This straight hairstyle is easy to do. With naturally straight or straightened hair, you can alter the way it looks a bit by using a flat iron to flip the hair ends “in” or “out”.  This is the most common style technique on straight hair.

When we were being filmed for YouTube’s 20/20 special, our stylist actually recommended that I flip the ends the same direction… which was something I had never thought about, but loved it! . It turned out super cute, and I receive compliments whenever I do this!

You can do this technique on short to medium hair, but with longer hair you will not benefit from the flips as much. You can also choose to back-comb some of the hair on the top to help add a little volume. I show you how to do this in the video.

{I also apologize for the clapping of the flat iron, as it is an iron that I have had for a long time.  As with all hairstyles that use heat, please be sure to use a good heat protectant first.}


Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, alligator clip {to hold top sections of hair}, heat protectant, flat-iron, and hairspray.

Time Requirement: 10+ minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Happy Hairdoing!

  1. so cool i just love your videos on youtube I try them out on myself all the time even though I am ten I keep learning

  2. I just started this website because a friend mentioned it to me , literally today , and im already in LOVE with it!!!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU MINDY!!!!!!!!! 😀

  3. Hey! 🙂 love all your hairstyles but my hair is very short, it doesn`t even reach my shoulders, so i would ask you if you would do some more hairstyles for girls with shorter hair! ;-)Thankyou 😀

  4. Hello!! Thank you for all of the awesome hairstyles!!!! First of all, I love your shirt and necklace in this video!! 🙂 Where did u get them??? Second, I’m 13 and have naturally wavy hair… I use a 1″ Power IQ straightener, but no heat protectant (I will start using one!!!) Anyway, when I straighten my hair with no heat protectant, in about an hour my hair starts to wave throughout, and also at the ends. Should I put in hairspray afterward? But I don’t know why my hair would get wavy….. do I have a bad straightener or do I need to put specific products on my hair???? Thank you so much for everything!!!!!! I love you!!!! 😉

  5. I’ve done this probably five times since you posted it and absolutely love it! Love that it looks just a little bit different and makes me feel pretty. Thanks!

  6. I love this!! It’s SO easy! If you’re straightening your hair anyways it takes no extra time, yet it adds so much. And I love how it’s so subtle. People say “Oh, your hair looks so nice, what did you do to it?” Then you point it out and they’re shocked they didn’t notice! Awesome!!

  7. Hi.
    I’m 13 years old and I love your website. I would love to do a lot of the hairstyles on the site but there’s one problem. My hair is very layered and it has ruined many of my plans. I think it would be great if you could create a whole new section for layered styles such as this.Thank you so much for all the great hairstyles!!!
