Enjoy!

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 1 ponytail holder, 1 small hair elastic, Topsy Tail Tool {optional}, 4-5 bobby pins, decorative hair comb, spray wax or hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 6-8 minutes

Skill Level: Medium

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Begin by pulling the hair back and secure it a low ponytail with a ponytail holder {make sure to leave a few strands of hair out near the front, and curl them, to frame the face}…
  2. Loosen the ponytail elastic away from the head a little. Using a topsy tail tool, or your fingers, flip the ponytail down though the loosened section to create a flipped ponytail…
  3. Now tighten the elastic again against the head…
  4. Next, fishtail braid the remaining ponytail hair and secure with an elastic when you run out of hair…
  5. Take the end of the fishtail and tuck it back up and down through the same hole {this creates a nice bun-like updo}…
  6. Using bobby pins, secure the fishtail against the head so it won’t fall out or droop down through the day.
  7. Add an glam accessory on top of the fishtail flip to accent the updo…
  8. Add hairspray or spray wax {as desired}.
