Half-Up Hair Style: Medium Length Hair
Brigitte Bardot. Kate Middleton. Ariana Grande.
As disparate as they might seem, these three influential and chic women all have one thing in common—their iconic half-up hairstyles.
When you can’t choose between a pulled back ponytail or wearing your hair loose and down, a half-up style is the perfect compromise. You’ll look polished and put together, but not too stuffy. And pulling your hair into a half-up ponytail or bun is an ideal second-day hairstyle when you’re rocking slightly dirty locks—it hides roots at the crown of the head that might look a little greasy, but allows you to get a bit more mileage out of your blow dry (or air dry, low-key babes).
Depending on your hair type (and styling capabilities!) there are tons of options you can try out for a beautiful half-up hair style. But if you’re not so great at styling your own hair and still want to work that half-up hairstyle, try our go-to look: The Half Up Playa Bun.
