Half-up, half-down, all cool hairstyles to take you from day to night

Not everyone has time to entirely redo their look when heading out after a long day at work or school. Luckily, we're on hand with three top half-up (or is it half-down?) hairstyles that will carry your flawlessly from desk to dancefloor.

Cute half ponytail

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 the , 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.

Chic half chignon

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 colour gradation like an ombré or balayage, as the roots are on full display. Practical and pretty!

Edgy half 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. Apply to the top section before blow-drying straight in order to achieve that smooth, silky finish. Twisting sections of hair around themselves when blowdrying will give you naturally piecey definition.
