2/ Half-up with a Quiff

This runway-inspired half-up hairstyle is easier to create than it looks! All you need is a high-lift creation spray, a strong hold hairspray and basic knowledge of hair teasing to create this chic hairstyle that'll make heads turn wherever you go!

Get the Look

1) Section-off about 1 inch of your face-framing hair along your forehead.

2) Mist your top hair (the hair right behind the sectioned-off piece) generously with high-lift creation spray. The product will give your strands an instant boost and prep them for teasing.

3) Lift your top hair and using a fine-toothed comb, tease (back-brush) the lower layers to create volume and height; set the teased section by spritzing generous amounts of strong hold hairspray.

4) Cover the teased section by smoothing out the sectioned-off hair over it and secure the ends with bobby pins.

5) Comb the rest of your loose hair, spritz some more hairspray and you have a picture-perfect half-up hairstyle with a quiff!

Styling tip: For a vogueish look, you can make a large quiff that covers about 4-5 inches of your hairline; for a more casual, everyday look, create a smaller quiff with about 2-3 inches of your face-framing hair.
