Half-up summer waves

Laid back, loose waves are an undeniably great look for summer, especially when pinned back into a half-up style. With the sides loosely secured just behind the ears, this hairstyle is understated enough to keep the focus on a statement outfit without fading into the background. It also does a great job of showing off intense eye makeup!

The great thing about this 'do is that it can be done on any hair length which falls level with the jaw or lower. So whether you have a bob cut or Rapunzel tresses, this is definitely a look worth trying!

If you would like to try this style on your own hair, just follow the tutorial below.

Step one: Starting with slightly damp hair - either freshly washed or quickly misted with water - apply Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray throughout, focusing on the lengths.

Step two: Twist and pin the hair up in large sections and leave it to dry. If you can, leave your hair up overnight.

Step three: Remove the pins and shake out your hair with your fingers.

Step four: Take a section of hair from each side of your head and pin then back to create the half-up part of this look. Apply a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum to the ends and scrunch to add more texture.

Step five: Spray your whole style liberally with a Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray. This will give you long-lasting hold so those waves stay in place all day long!

Who knows, maybe this could be your new go-to summer hairstyle!
