Day Eleven: Flippy Bun {30 Days, 30 Ways}

Day Eleven: Flippy Bun
Skill To Learn: Half-Pulled Pony
Difficulty: Easy Peasy
Time Commitment: 15 Minutes
What You Need: Gel, Comb, 1 Fat Elastic

For Day Eleven of 30 Days, 30 Ways, I am going to introduce you to the Flippy Bun!  This one is so easy, but it’s yet another fun way to create the illusion of a fancy-ish hairstyle!   

For the flippy bun, begin with a wet head and lightly gel your hair from the midstrand to the ends.  And if you tend to get flyaways around the front, go ahead and run your lightly-gelled fingers through there too!  Pull your hair into a ponytail (this style works when the pony is positioned high, mid, low or even on the side.  Go here for more on that) and as you finish the last rotation of your fat elastic, only pull the hair half-way through.  Make sure that you position your hands strategically to leave the flippy ends on the top.  You don’t have to determine it from the outset; your hair will switch positions on that last rotation if you realize that you are coming at it from the wrong angle!  And if some of the hair falls out on the bottom, that’s okay too!  The messy look is part of the fun…  Run a little more gel over the ends (feel free to reshape them or scrunch them at this point), pop a fun flower or bow over the spiky ends and you are ready to go — in under 15 minutes


Practice and let me know how it goes…  see you tomorrow!  

Have a great day and remember that someone needs a ray of light today that only you can shine.
Make time for inspiration, be yourself without apology and always light your world with goodness!
