Half up half down hairstyle is very popular among the brides. Depending on elements and form of curls, it can be easily integrated in any style from classic to bohemian. It goes perfectly with long hair as well as half long hair. This kind of hairstyle looks impressive on its own, or it can be decorated with various accessories, ribbons, and flowers. All possible forms of waves can form a basis for a half up half down hairstyle: Hollywood waves, natural texturized or beach waves. Half up half down can be done with twists, buns and/or braids.
Here you can find the examples of my works on real brides or on the models, which I showed at my workshops.
Half up half down hairstyle only looks easy to do, but there are a lot of details which are important to know and carry out on a professional level, such as: right styling products, styling tools, right form of the wave, suitable exactly for that type of the hair, right elements and style that goes perfectly with the whole look of the bride.
What is also important to keep in mind?
I don’t recommend choosing a half up half down hairstyle for thin and straight, hard to curl hair, without using extensions. Otherwise, you undergo a big risk that the hairstyle doesn't hold all day. Or, for example, if there is much hair and no desire to use extensions, I would advise to make some voluminous braid, it’ll help to preserve the hair length.
