There's no denying the appeal of a well-executed half-up hairstyle, especially one with plenty of texture and an interesting silhouette... just like this statement look, complete with pomp on top. We just love the slightly rebellious nature of this hairstyle and the straight yet imperfect texture is, well, perfect.
If you like your hairstyles to really stand out from the crowd, this could be just the half-up 'do you didn't know you were looking for!
What you need:
Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray
Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray
Step one: Spray the hair with Iron Straight Heatspray from root to tip and flat iron. Don't worry about making it look totally uniform, just aim for straight-ish.
Step two: Section of the hair on the very top of your head and clip it out of the way. Comb the hair on either side smoothly back and secure with bobby pins. Pin the hair quite high up so that covering the pins is easier later on.
Step three: Let down the top section and spray the roots with High Lift Creation Spray. Tease with a fine-tooth comb then smooth over to cover the pins at the back of your head.
Step four: Spray some Bold Control Hairspray into the palm of your head and smooth it over the sides to tame flyaways. After that, mist your hair all over with it to lock in your style. That's it!
