The half updo is an alternative to the updo for women who don’t want to put all their hair up. Historically speaking, women wore the half updo to signify that they were still available. It frames and opens up the face at the same time. It keeps the hair away from the face without that severe look that sometimes comes with the updo. This style is very convenient for women who stay at home or work as it keeps the hair away from your eyes, but at the same time allows you to show off your mane. The half updo is easy to style and manage. It can be worn to any occasion.
You don’t need to go to the hair dressers’ or stylists’ for that great everyday half-do. You can do it by yourself, at home. For the basic half updo, simply comb back your hair and gather the upper half of it in your hand, secure this half with your favorite hair clip, scrunchie or hair claw. Another easy to do style is to part your hair down the middle or on the side. Again, gather the upper part of each section and secure it with a barrette or hair comb or your favorite accessory.
The half updo is a popular hairstyle that can be worn by women with either straight or curly hair. It can be accented with your favorite hair accessories. This style has become popular for proms, weddings and any affair. Celebrities have been wearing the half updo to various red carpet events.
The two most popular half updo style is the side part half updo and the classic half pony tail with the top teased into a high quiff. Both are easy to do by yourself.
It is important to note that before styling your hair, it should be clean. So shampoo and condition your hair before styling it. Apply your favorite leave-on conditioner or styling mousse to party damp hair and blow-dry. For the side part half updo, part your hair on your preferred side. Gather about a fourth of your hair to the back of your head and secure it with your favorite hair accessory. Arrange the front of your hair by pulling it low to the forehead to make bangs. This classic look is great for any occasion and is easy to do.
