Half-up, half-down hairstyles are awesome for many different reasons. They're practical, pretty, and there are so many different ways you can wear them! In the gallery above, you'll find ten gorgeous looks to inspire your next half-up 'do.

Add volume

Whether you want to try a retro bouffant or a thoroughly modern quiff, volume is the key ingredient. To build height that lasts, spray your hair - focusing on the roots - with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray, then tease your locks from behind.

Make waves

Half-up hairstyles look really good with waves and curls. If your hair is naturally straight, add movement by applying Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray throughout, then blow-drying it in twisted sections.

For added texture, scrunch some Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum through the ends once your mane has been dried and curled.

Go sleek

For a glossy look, blow-dry your hair after applying Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream to smooth the cuticle as the hair dries. When you're done, add shine and tame any flyaways with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray. You can do this before you create your half-up style of choice, or use it as a finishing spray.
