If you haven’t been under a rock, you know that a half-up half-down hairstyle is possibly the most efficient way to get a gorgeous look. I don’t know if half-ups have had this name for a long time but people have been doing them forever. They started off mainly for formal events, and then they started to get more casual. If you have ever rocked a topknot or a half over braid, you have rocked this look. I started noticing them a few years ago at formal events like weddings. I would see the bride all done up and then the bridesmaids would be rocking a complimentary hairdo that was half up and half down. Then I started seeing some of my cousins rocking them for prom and homecoming type events, and now I am seeing them all over the place.
If you know anything about me, you know that I am curious and love to poke around on Pinterest, Google, and Instagram to see what the latest trends are so I can experiment and see what is actually good and what just looks elegant in pictures but then looks horrible in real life. I am also a huge fan of the messy and boho looks so I threw a few of those in here. I do, however, have straight hair, but I threw in a few for curly haired women and chicks that have to rock the curled hairstyle to get the volume they need. Either way, take a look at some of these badass half up half down hairstyles that I think are totally worth trying and I will be rocking them ASAP.
