Are you indecisive when it comes to your hair? If so, a half-up style might be the perfect solution. This cute wavy look is easy to recreate and the braided detail gives it a carefree, summery feel.

To find out how to get the look, all you have to do is follow the tutorial below.

Step one

You can start with either dry or damp hair so no need to wash it if you're on a tight schedule! Either way, spray L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray evenly throughout then blow-dry in large twisted chunks. Holding a large piece of twisted hair by the ends will set each strand into a wave as it dries, creating that laid-back, beach-worthy texture you can see on the model opposite.

Step two

Once dried, break up the twists by shaking your fingers through your hair then use a tail comb to section off the very top layers. Clip this section up and tie the rest of your hair into a low pony to keep it out of the way.

Step three

Let down the top section and French braid it, starting from just behind your hairline and working back toward the crown of your head. To do this, start with a small piece at the front then split it into three parts. As you braid, add more hair into the braid until the whole section has been used up. When you're done, secure at the back with a small hair elastic.

Step four

Let down the rest of your hair then run a wide-tooth comb through it. To finish, spray your new style generously with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.

Say hello to your new favorite half-up style! (Unless you'd prefer this one...)
