We know you’ve seen it all over your social media accounts; it’s flirty but elegant, fun but glamorous; it’s the oh-so-chic "flip hairstyle" or simply known as flipped-out ends. Think smooth, voluminous hair that dramatically flips out at the ends giving your hair a powerful yet playful bounce.

From Kim K’s flipped out half-up to Kylie Jenner’s flipped out bob, the style can be recreated in bobs, ponies, or even the most elegant updos. The style is literally when the ends have been flipped out (usually using a round brush when blow-drying, or a curling iron/ roller on dry hair.
