Trend Alert: Half-Up Hair With a Twist

Earlier this month I spotted Nicole Richie and Whitney Port both donning a modern, slightly messy take on a half-up, half-down hairdo that Mandy Moore wore a while back. It's a casual, chic, and stylish way to keep your hair out of your eyes. This laid-back look is easy to achieve. Just follow my three simple steps below:

  • STEP 1: Part your hair in the center.
  • STEP 2: Pull back the top crown of your hair (above your temples where your bangs are/would be) and twist hair away from your face. You can also braid it or brush it back as additional styling options.
  • STEP 3: Secure hair on the sides with small barrettes, elastics or bobby pins, or pull both sections of hair to the back and secure together. See? Easy.

There is also the coming of the braids this season. I would spice up this half-up like by incorporating a very fines braid on each side. The texture looks amazing, and it will take this simple day look to night in a flash!

I like the neater version, c'est à dire, Whitney's version. In my opinion Mandy's look is too scruffy.

Use the check spelling option at the bottom of the comment box DreaAST, sorry, I'm very picky on stuff like that!! I absolutely adore this look and have been wearing my hair like this for the most of the Southern Hemisphere summer! Except I tie more of my hair up... more half and half... I'll be trying it with less now I guess...

The half-up is a throwback to the 1960s and I love the easy, relaxed style. I agree with what was said earlier about it being an alternative to the pony tail.
