Half-up hairstyles have a certain fairytale quality when teamed with the right texture, giving any look a romantic, wistful dimension. With spring just around the corner and prom season on the not-too-distant horizon, half-up 'dos with loose waves and even a few floral accessories are likely to be everywhere in the coming months... mostly because they're so pretty and they work really well with this season's windswept trend!
If you're looking for a hairstyle to pair with a floral ensemble, or one to help balance something a little more neutral, a tousled half-up look is just perfect.
The key to getting this style just right is to embrace a loosely wavy texture, and not to shy away from a mussing it slightly to create a few blurred edges! This is essential for creating the soft lines that give this hairstyle its pretty, feminine vibe.

Step one: Starting with either dry or damp hair, apply Tousle Waves Spray evenly from roots to ends. Finger-comb the hair to ensure the spray is well-distributed all over.
Step two: Take a section of hair – about an inch wide - and twist it. Hold the twist by the ends and blow-dry it.
Step three: Repeat step two on the rest of your hair and then finger-comb to reveal a loose, wavy texture.
Step four: Take two sections of hair, one from each side of your head, and twist them in toward the back of your head slightly. Loosely pull them together and secure at the back with bobby pins.
Step five: Gently muss the hair a little with your fingertips and mist with Bold Control Hairspray to finish.
And you're done!
