Flipped Half Up

I almost called this “The Piggy Flip”. . .but that doesn’t sound pretty, does it?

But if you grew up knowing the style “piggy flip”, thats exactly what we are doing here. 

But I strategically leave a center section separate so as to not show the part. 

You’ll understand when you watch the video. . .

Refer to this post to see what products are in my hair. 

Earrings: Target, Summer 2011; Striped top: T. J Maxx, Spring 2012

Spring is here! Time for new jewelry!

    Super cute and should actually work with my hair! :) Thank you so much for these – you’ve made my mornings less stressful since I found your tutorials!

    I just bought those earrings at Target this weekend! I LOVE them paired with the navy and white – I am going to have to copy that look! I love your hair style too. Somehow you make it look fresh and not straight from the 90s like I remember it :)

    How long is your hair when its not curled? I tried to get it cut like your pictures but it just has been somewhat of an ordeal and not what i wanted! Not looking cute like you always do..lol!

    The last two shirts you’ve worn in your blog (the pink one and the blue / white stripe one) I also have! I guess we both have great style! 😉 … Now, if I could only get my hair to do what yours does. (A neverending battle.)

    I used to have the little tool that you used to accomplish this look with a full ponytail, I think they called it the topsy tail. ah the memories! that thing hurt!! LOL
    I’m going to try this tomorrow!!

    I also love those earrings btw!!

    I have had my eye on the earrings from target for a while now. I would have never thought of putting them with a blue striped shirt. Also, I love the hair. I wish mine would curl that good. Plus, I would love to thank you for your blog. I enjoy it so much. You are so creative. Thanks, Rachel :)

    I wish you could style my hair every day!!! I absolutely love reading your posts!!! I have thin, fine, straight hair, a little longer than shoulder length. Do you know how I can give it body or what products I could use that wont make it greasy looking?! Thanks in advance! :)

    I have been told many times that I have great hair. However, YOU girl make these styles look so effortless. Even though I’ve never struggled styling my hair – I cannot get mine to look as cute as yours!! Thanks so much for your step by step process. It makes TRYING new styles a little less frustrating. Now if I could just get them perfected :)

    Hi Kate,
    I love reading your blog! We seem to have similar style and taste. So when I saw your outfit on this entry, I went straight out to TJ Maxx for the striped top. Of course, I could not find it! Oh well, I’ll just keep looking! Hopefully my local TJM will stock this item soon!

    GREAT tutorials! Found your blog from a friends blog at http://craftdisasters.blogspot.com/2012/04/i-got-award-thanks.html I knew this one as a Topsy Tail, and I still have the little tool & style booklet from the 90s! I’m glad it’s still a relevant style! :) By the way, I’m sooo jealous of your hair! You’ve got all that volume & texture. Mine is pretty, but it’s flat, thin, almost stick-straight, and waist length. A lot of the messy styles you have tutorials of look fabulous on you, but they never end up looking good on me. Oh well! I’ll be following your blog, though, and see what styles of yours I can make work for me! 😀

    Just found your blog from a friend on pinterest. I absolutely LOVE your hair and styles! I am a stay-at-home mom and always tend to just put my hair in a simple pony tail. I am excited to try all your styles!! Can you please share the style cut you have?? Thanks for all the great tips!!
