Half-up hairstyles are oh-so-useful. Not only can they be totally gorgeous, they're also perfect for those indecisive styling moments we all experience from time to time. On top of that, they also get some serious bonus points for their impressive capacity for hiding dirty roots! We just love the half-up style featured in the video above as it combines the best things about up-and-down hair, cute micro braids, and this year's biggest hairstyle phenomenon - tousled waves. It's also a very user-friendly look that only takes a few minutes to recreate.
To master this 'do on your own locks, all you need to do is follow the steps in the video. To make the styling process super easy, we've also laid out the written instructions below. Happy styling!
Get the look
Starting with dry hair, curl big waves with a curling iron.
Top tip - If you have trouble getting your strands to hold a curl, re-curl each section after removing it from the iron and clip it up to cool.
Next, apply L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray evenly throughout. This will add texture to your look and make sure those waves stay put!
Take a piece of hair from just above your ear and braid it all the way down to the ends. Fasten with a small elastic.
Repeat on the other side.
Pull the braids together at the back of your head and secure with another hair tie.
Wrap the ends into a micro bun and pin.
Complete your new style with a veil of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray.
