Summer Hair 2: Flipped Up Bun!

June 26, 2012

This is one of those dead easy “get it out of my face” styles that looks nicer than just schlepping it up in a pony tail. I found the style on Pinterest, but the original link is here.

To do it, you need a hair elastic (use a pretty big and strong one – not a tiny rubber one), some bobby pins, and some kind of flower clip or hair accessory on a clip. It’s not totally necessary but it’s part of what makes this so easy!

First, make a low pony tail wherever you want your bun to be – centered, or off to one side. In these pictures mine is slightly off-center but that is actually a total accident. I was aiming for center. Oh well.

Make a hole in your pony tail, between your head and the hair elastic, and flip your pony down through the hole, from top to bottom, as shown in the picture on the link.

Then just fold your ponytail up and tuck it into the “pocket” made by flipping the ponytail. Use some bobby pins to secure everything, and then stick a flower clip across the top of it to hold any straggling bits.

The beauty of this is that you don’t have to be really neat about it – the clip will hide any lumps from the bobby pins.

My hair is really long right now, and I find I have to fold my pony tail two or three times to get it to the size I want. I usually have to use a few more pins to hold in the bits that pop out the sides of the bun. Just take your time, and keep pinning. It’s pretty easy and fast once you get the hang of it!

Go play and be beautiful!
