Half-up Half-down: 3 ways to get the best of both worlds

You love wearing your hair up, but then again you also love to wear it down. Why choose?! Here are three contemporary ways to style the half-up half-down hairdo.

Sweet and slicked back


A modern interpretation of the classic half-up ponytail, this look incorporates the on-trend wet look style in order to smooth the hair back and away from the face. We recommend using a pea-sized amount of the strong hold Aqua Gloss gel by Tecni.ART, and combing it across the sides and over the top of your half-up pony, leaving the lengths loose to flow naturally. To tame any flyaways, you may like to top off this look with a thin headband.


Boxer braid inspiration

Easily one of this season's most popular looks, boxer braids show their versatility when incorporated into this half-up hairstyle. The braids add texture and intrigue to the overall look, while the lengths tumbling over the shoulder are the perfect way to show off beautiful sun-kissed blonde locks. It's the best of both worlds! To keep control of frizz, we recommend applying the bestselling best-selling Liss Control Cream by Tecni.ART to towel-dried hair before blow-drying.

Space buns

Double buns are one of this season's hottest hairstyle trends – and they work brilliantly when interpreted as a half-up half-down hairstyle. Also known as space buns, the double bun look has been trending all year. Cute and playful, space buns are a contemporary nod to the '90s hairstyle trend and add instant height to your silhouette. Meanwhile, the lengths are left natural and free, save for a spritz of the Natural Finish hairspray for invisible, lightweight hold.

So, how will you be styling your half-up half-down hairdo this season?
