Half up and half down is one hairstyle that can work on both casual and formal occasions. Whether you have long wavy hair or a long bob, half up hairstyle can easily add glam to your look without making you look over the top. A classic half up is forever our favorite and will be, but a slight upgrade won't hurt, are we right? Here are 3 very new and easy ways you can upgrade your half up half down hairdo.


1| Braided Half Up

Part your hair and French braid the half up section. Secure with hair elastic or bobby pins and you are good to go.


2| Braided Flower Half Up

Gather the top section of your hair and regular braid it. Secure the end with a hair tie and lightly loosen each loop. Twist the braid around at the crown section to create a flower. Once you are happy with the shape, secure it with a few bobby pins. Complete the look with hairspray.



4| Jennifer Lopez Half Up

This is how Jen wore the half up hairdo, then we saw Ariana Grande flaunting it the same way and then soon it was Khloe Kardashian who also donned this hairstyle. Take the top section of your hair and tightly secure it at the top of your head. Flare the half up ponytail so it blends nicely with the rest of your locks. Wrap and secure a thin section of hair around the hair tie to conceal it.
