Half-up wavy hair

Long, wavy hair is a huge hairstyle trend this season and we're constantly looking for new ways to wear it. We just love this simple, half-up 'do, as seen at London Fashion Week! If you're looking for a pretty style that's easy to achieve, this look could be perfect for you.

To find out how to recreate the look, just follow the tutorial below.

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with clean, damp hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Quick Dry Primer Spray throughout. Use a comb to get even coverage because the spray will protect your tresses from heat damage.

Step 2
Blow-dry your hair until it's completely dry. To help encourage a naturally undone texture, use your hands instead of a brush to keep your hair fairly straight.

Step 3
Once dried, part your hair straight down the middle with a tail comb, then mist it all over with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray.

Step 4
Use a medium-barrel curling iron to curl the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. When you're done, gently brush your hair through to unify the curls into smooth-ish waves.

Step 5
On either side of your face, take a chunk of hair, twist it, and pin it back behind your ears.

Step 6
Complete your new half-up look with a generous mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray to keep flyways at bay and give the waves long-lasting hold.

Between washes

If you don't want to wash your hair before you begin this tutorial, or you just don't have the time, mist your roots with Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray instead and skip straight to step three. The dry shampoo formula will freshen your hair by absorbing any excess oil.
