Flip Hairstyles For Women 2022
#1 – ‘The Slicked Back’ flip hairstyles for women
Not just with the men, but even with the women, this “slicked back” hairstyle is totally in fashion now!
Especially for women with medium length hair, this one’s perfect for you to try.
Some people find that slicking their hair back makes it easier to style and that’s why most people love to have it that way these days.
But there are two important aspects in attaining this look. Firstly, you will have to learn how to get your hair ready to get that perfect slick back hairstyle.
And second, you need to invest in a good quality hair wax or pomade to brush over the slick backed hair to let it stay perfectly in place.
#2 -‘The Flipped Ends’ Flip Hairstyles For Women
This hairstyle will work best on women with shorter hair lengths and straighter hair types (unless you would wish to get your hair temporarily or permanently straightened to get this look).
The flipped ends hairstyle requires the hair to be combed out with a side parting preferably and brushed downwards, finally pulling your hair gently outwards only at the ends, to give it that perfect “flipped ends” look.
#3 – ‘The Center Parted Layered’ Flip Hairstyles For Women
The name of this hairstyle suggests what this one’s going to be, right? Well, it is as it sounds. It is straightforward and simple to style and can get you on the go in no time.
So if you’re running late some time, try this one out! This one works well with ladies having medium or long hair.
All you need to do is get your hairstylist to give you the perfect layered cut with layers at different levels – the first one starting below your eyes, then the next one at your chin (and near your neck if you have longer hair and so on).
You will then need to part your hair at the center of your head and let the layers fall towards the sides of your head.
#4 – ‘The Sharp Layered’ Flip Hairstyles For Women
This one looks pretty cool, doesn’t it? It for sure brings out one’s personality, in my opinion. It not only looks trendy but is eye-catching for those around you.
There are many levels of layers, starting off with the sharp angled fringes at the forehead and flows perfectly down the head toward the sides.
If you have straight and short or medium hair length, I’m sure this look will look perfect on you!
#5 – ‘The Bun with Flips’ hairstyle
Are you having a bad hair day and your hair just won’t stand in place?
Throw it up into a messy bun and let your bangs or a few strands of hair in the front be left out of the bun, to style it over your forehead to get the perfect look.
This one’s easy to maintain and looks classy for sure.

Are you one of those women with voluminous hair and always worry about not being able to get a good cut?
Well, this one’s for you. It looks classy and can also showcase your personality well. Also, guess what?
The good news is you don’t have to do much, all you need to do is randomly part your hair asymmetrically and let the volume of your hair fall towards the sides.

I honestly like to see old trends come back into fashion. It reminds us of the good old days. This one’s from the 1960’s, but is still totally classic and iconic!
You don’t have to actually “style” it, but it can pass off as hair that has been “styled” for sure.
Comb your hair out backwards or with a parting of your choice and then to own the look – put on a hair band! Yes! It is that simple!
#9 – The Side Flip Hairstyles For Women
This one I’m sure can be most ladies’ go-to hairstyle because it is so simple, yet looks lovely!
The best part is that you don’t need to put in any effort to wash it before styling, blow dry it, use any hair serums or gels, nothing!
Just flip all your hair towards one side and let it flow downwards, and that’s it, that’s the look!

Now this one’s pretty and elegant, isn’t it? And no, you don’t need to be just a bride or a bridesmaid to get this hairstyle.
You can get it anyways, because it looks so pretty! It will look good to try out for any special occasion.
Part your hair in the direction of your choice, gather a portion or a few strands of hair towards one side and pin it up there along with a flower.

Just how you have the simple side flip hairstyle, this one’s quite similar, as it also requires your hair thrown into a side flip, but the good part is that it can be a messy side flip.
