I’m in love with build-able hair styles right now. I think I invented the term as far as defining hairstyles go, so if you weren’t around for our fishtail series and are confused with what a build-able style is… it’s basically a number of hairstyles that build upon each other. To get to the second hairstyle, you’ve gotta complete the first sort of thing. Make sense?! I really love build-able hairstyles because there are many times I’ve started my day wanting my hair down. And by the end of it I’ve gotta have it up. Either it’s just too hot outside or I’m too active with my kids and my hair is driving me insane hanging down on my shoulders. I love build-able hairstyles because they quickly transition a down style to an upstyle with just a few extra steps.
These topsy tail hairstyles are perfect for summer. Easy. SO easy. Quick. Cute. Wind proof 🙂
If you’re at the beach and you want to start out with a down style while your hair is dry, start with style #1. Then as the day progresses, the hotter you get or if your hair gets wet and crazy like, throw it into a pony or bun. Done and done. What do you guys think? Quick transition from down to up. Love it. I’m telling you, build able hairstyles. They’re the next big thing… and I’m totally taking credit for them hahaha!!
Quick Steps:: Start by sectioning off hair from the temples up. Secure with a clear elastic in the back and put into topsytail. Clip tail up and gather another section of hair from the ears up. Secure with clear elastic. Reach through as if starting a topsy tail and pull the tail up in a clip into the hole. Finish off second topsytail.
Quick steps:: Clip up tails and secure the remaining hair into a ponytail with a clear elastic. Reach from underneath and pull the tails through, right above clear elastic. Leaving the tails down, secure that last ponytail into a topsytail.
Quick Steps:: But the ponytail into a messy bun!
And of course, a video. This video was taken before I chopped my hair, and we are finally back from our vacations so I’m going to be filming short hairstyles from here on out… mostly. I still have a few long hair tutorials saved in the reserves! Enjoy!
