6 Insanely Pretty Half-Up, Half-Down Hairstyles
Sideswept & Elegant
Added fullness at the crown + a subtle wave + sideswept strands = added drama and complete elegance. Consider it instead of a traditional updo for your next formal occasion.
Soft & Loose
It doesn’t get any easier than this: Loosely pull back a small section of hair and call it a day. Don’t stress about any face-framing pieces falling out— the more undone, the better.
The Tousled Top Knot
Strands too short for a ponytail? An undone topknot keeps your hair out of your face—a great option whether you’re working out, going out, or both.
The Brigitte Bardot
A dramatic center part is key for this retro-inspired take. Subtle volume at the crown and undone curls add to the understated yet sexy vibe.
The High Ponytail
A little bit 80s, a lot on-trend, pulling the top section into a high ponytail is as simple as it gets. Also nice: It works equally well on straight or wavy strands.
Keeping the top of your hair smooth and sleek creates the perfect contrast to lots of full and luscious curls underneath. It’s a great option for anyone who wants to show off long length.
