Which half-up hairstyle gets your vote?

Half-up hairstyles are a summer staple, and there are so many ways to wear the look! We love half-up braids and twisted, half-up waves in particular, but which hairstyle would you be more likely to wear?

Half-up fishtail braids

A little detail goes a long way, as proven by the pretty simplicity of fishtail braids at any size. When worn small as part of a smooth, half-up hairstyle, the herringbone pattern really stands out, creating an intricate hairstyle that doesn't look like it's trying too hard.

Styling tip

Try this hairstyle with unwashed, day two hair and a little dry shampoo. Use Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray to absorb excess oil at the root and add texture throughout. This will make the strands easier to braid.

Half-up wavy hair

Tousled mermaid waves look gorgeous in a half-up hairstyle. The soft texture works really well with some cute twists, and to make it your own, you can accessorize the style with flowers, shells, ribbon... you name it! If you want to keep it really simple, however, try pinning the hair back with a couple of crisscrossed bobby pins.

Styling tip

Apply Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray throughout and blow dry your hair in twisted sections. Once dried, use a curling iron to add more waves as necessary.
