Half up Half Down Wedding Hairstyles

Half up Half down Wedding Hair


1. Start with loose waves in your hair.

2. Backcomb or tease the hair at the crown of your head.

3. Smooth out the top layer.

4. Twist one side of your hair and ***pin it about 2/3 of the way across your head*** (this is the big trick that will allow you to hide your tracks!)

5. Now twist the other side and tuck it under the first part.

6. Again, pin that piece about 2/3 of the way across your head.

Easy! And so pretty!

What a wonderful style. I absolutely love it. I am doing my debutante ball next year and have just bought my debutante dress I was thinking of doing a bow tie hairstyle but now I am leaning towards this half up-half down hairstyle.

Get a chlorine filter shower, never brush your hair with anything but a wide tooth comb, let it air dry in a clip for a while before blow drying, only use medium heat. Use a protecting serum!

The models hair color is perfect! Does she dye it? If so what color? That is exactly the color I am looking for!
