Half-up, half-down, the best of both worlds.
Not everyone has time to entirely redo their look when heading out after a long day at work or school. Luckily, we're here to introduce you to three half-up hairstyles that will carry your look flawlessly from desk to dining out .
Channel your inner '80s girl, but with a modern touch, with this half-up ponytail tied slightly to the side for maximum selfie head-tilting effect. We love the casual textured layering that can be recreated by using Tecni.Art Next Day Hair , giving you instantly matte tousled locks. Long hair, be aware: bangs and short or mid-length styles prevent this look from going cliché. Don't hold back from pulling out a few flyaway sections to show your lighthearted side.
Half-Up Top Knot
This is a go-to look for city slickers heading straight from the office to a VIP cocktail party. Use a wide-toothed comb to pull the top section of the hair away from the face and back. Tie in a ponytail, then wrap the lengths around the elastic and tuck in the ends. This look can be a great way to show off a color graduation like an ombré or balayage, as the roots are on full display. Practical and pretty!
Half-Up Messy Loop Bun
There's nothing middle-of-the-range when it comes to mid-length hair, and this quirky half-up bun proves it. Note how the smooth, silky texture of the bun section contrasts with the piecey layers underneath. To get the look, apply Sleek and Swing styling gel to the top section before blow-drying straight in order to achieve that smooth, silky finish. Twisting sections of hair around themselves when blow-drying will give you naturally piecey definition. Next, section off your top-most layer of hair and tie an elastic around it into a ponytail. Before looping your elastic for the last time, pull your hair through in a loop.
