This post is in honor of a dear friend of mine that recently took to calling me a Hippy – although I am far from one! 🙂 It’s a dumb story and not one you’re really care about, but because of her calling me hippy a lot, we did this ‘do on Goose the other day. It’s quick & easy & a great one for a rushed school morning. Goose has been wanting her hair down a bit lately – despite the heat, and it still drives me nuts when it’s totally down & in her face, so this was a great compromise. This could be considered bohemian or hippy-ish – minus braids I guess. But what do I know??!! I wasn’t born in that era!
Start by making a part – I did mine off center on the right side (as always.) Might be more hippy-esque if you did it smack dab in the middle. From that middle part, part a very small section of hair out down to the ear. Make a tiny pony tail & secure it with a rubberband.
With that same section of hair add 2 more rubberbands further down the ponytail. Depending on the length of hair you’re working with will determine how far you space them.
Repeat to the left side as well. So each ponytail has 3 rubberbands (counting the 1 closest to the head.)
Join them in back with another rubberband. You can leave it as loose or make it as tight as you want. If you enlarge the picture, you can see I didn’t do my rubberbands all tight in one spot – I spaced them out a little bit. There was no exactness with this do. I also ran my flat iron through her hair to make it a bit straighter. You could certainly curl this one up to make it fancier. (Her hair really isn’t cut crooked – it’s just the way she’s standing!)
I don’t know why, but whenever I try to have her just look “natural or serious” she looks all bummed or sad in these next couple pictures. Oh well – she really isn’t!
Of course – add the hand made beaded choker that Goose made & you’re all set for the full hippy look! 🙂
Ta-da — quick, easy & out the door in a flash!
You could add little flowers to each spot where you put rubberbands – or put a bow smack in the back – whatever to embellish it – but we just left it as is & it did the trick!
