So this hairdo I really wanted to call “The Angela Do” – after Angela from one of my favorite shows “The Office.” I bought my husband the latest season for our anniversary & he was re-watching an episode the other night and I happened to come in the room at the perfect time to spot a fun & simple hairdo that Angela was sporting. She usually wears her hair down or very simply done, and I just loved this one. I tried to take a few still shots for you off my TV, but they aren’t that great. And I didn’t get any from the front, so hopefully you get the idea. I did Goose’s hairdo before I went back and took shots off the DVD so ours differs a little from the actual hairdo because I let our part show – but no biggy!
Begin by parting the hair from the left temple and angle it back towards the right ear.
Leave the “bang” area alone and make a pony with the remaining hair in the back.
Take the front parted off section of hair and get it nice and smooth – combing it towards the right ear. Pull it loosely back towards the ponytail on the back of the head.
Then take a rat tail comb, or a bobby pin, or something of that nature for support to keep the bangs from spreading apart as you are bringing the hair back to the pony tail. (But if you’re wanting your part not to show as much as ours did – more like Angela’s actual hairdo – then you’ll want to let it swoop up a bit higher and then secure it so the hair doesn’t slide all over while you’re wrapping it.)
I stuck my rat tail through a bit of hair above the bang, then over the top of the bang, and then back through more hair at the base of the head and it stayed put while I worked with the rest of the hair.
Leave your rat tail comb in position and wrap the hair over the top of the ponytail and back around as many times as you can until you have a short “tail” of hair left.
Now here is the part that can differ. To secure the hair underneath the ponytail this time I used a couple of little claw clips because I still had 2 other heads of hair to do before church & this was the quickest way for me.
I’ve heard some people take a Topsy Tail (which I still don’t have!) and pull it through the rubber band and back into the pony tail on the underside of the pony. Or you can just push the little tail of hair through the rubberband without a Topsy Tail also. I’ve also secured it w/small bobby pins before as well. Just depends on the hair you’re working with and what works for you.
Once you’ve wrapped the hair this is what it’ll look like.
We added a few random curls w/the flat iron to dress it up a little bit more.

Although this hairdo looks amazing without any accessory, Goose was dying to wear her new dress with this new clip from Gimme Clips. It added a huge splash of color & made it look even more beautiful. This clip is part of their new Bella V. line which means it has a clip or a pin, depending on where you want to wear it. I can’t wait to add this clip to accessorize as Christmas approaches!
