Half-up hairstyles are, by definition, the best of both worlds. They keep a reasonable amount of hair back off the face while showcasing plenty of movement through the lengths. In short, it's the perfect style for anyone who just can't decide what to do with their mane.
We just love the simple yet very elegant style in the photo above. With a polished finish that doesn't come off as too severe, it would be the perfect accompaniment to any attire, whether you're heading to a job interview or a party.
Get the look
Starting with damp hair, spray a wave enhancing spray like L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray throughout and blow-dry. Hold the hair in large twisted sections while you dry to create loose, natural waves.
Once dried, use a wide-tooth comb to define a middle part. This will give you a certain amount of accuracy without compromising the texture.
Take a pice of hair from the front on the left side and loosely twist it. Pin it at the back, ensuring it dips down a little as it skims past your ear. Repeat on the other side then join the two pieces together.
To keep flyways at bay and give your style long-lasting hold, complete the look with a finishing spray such as Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray. That's it!
Team this style with subtle accessories for a more detailed look or leave it as it is for a chic, minimalist vibe.
