There are a lot of half-up hairstyles out there to choose from, including this sleek look. To be honest, it's probably less than 1/4 up... but it works. From the front, it looks like a regular brushed back style then from the back, a mini pony brings some subtle to the table.

The result is a style with little to no shock factor, but a certain amount of originality that will ensure it still stands out from the crowd. It's no XXL pomp but it certainly has a good amount of personality to it!

If you want to try this style on your own tresses, read on...

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray
Flat iron
Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray
Hair elastic
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray

Step one: You can start with either dry or freshly washed damp hair. With dry hair, mist with Iron Straight Heatspray then flat iron. If you're shower-fresh, use a blow-dryer and a round brush instead. Go for whichever straightening method you prefer.

Step two: Once dried, spray the hair all over with Strand-Smoother Serum Spary. This will tame flyaways and render a super soft, silky finish.

Step three: Comb back a section of hair from the middle of your hairline at the front, all the way to the back of your head - use the arches of your eyebrows as a guide. Gather it into a mini pony and secure with a small hair tie.

Step four: Spray the brushed back hair with Bold Control Hairspray and comb it over again to finish!
