Get the Look: A Half-Up, Half-Down Hairstyle Video

Follow these steps for a hairstyle that will complement every hair type.

© 2011 Copyright Notice


With long hair, there are so many styles to choose from. We are going to show you a half-up, half-down style to complement your hair whether it's straight or curly. Here's how to get the look. Let's start with straight hair; we're going to add a few waves before putting it up. Step 1: Towel dry your hair and use a small amount of smoothing serum. Apply from roots to ends. Step 2: Flip your hair and begin blow drying. Use your fingers to make sure you dry the roots. Step 3: Flip back up and run your fingers through your hair to make it settle back into place. Step 4: Wrap the hair around a large round brush. Blow dry as you do this. Step 5: Transfer the hair into Velcro rollers. Do this to your whole head using small sections. Step 6: Allow rollers to set for about 10 minutes before removing. Step 7: Remove curlers and run your fingers through your hair to loosen up the wave. Step 8: Take a section of hair from both corners of your forehead, use the ends of your eyebrows as a guide. Bring the hair up to the top of your head and secure it with a small barrette. Step 9: Finish it up with a light spritz of hair spray. And there you have it, half-up, half-down and ready to go.
