Easy Half Up Half Down Hairstyles

catherine-zeta-jones-half-hg-de

If you hair is naturally wavy, then this hairstyle is perfectly easy for you. But, for those who have straight hair like me, in my opinion, you hair will look better if it is curled beforehand. Plus, it is easier to get the poufy hair just like Catherine Zeta Jones if your hair has a lot of volume. Try this cute and easy hairstyle right now!!

Pretty Half Up Half Down Hair In Under 3 Min

1. Start with curled or wavy hair.

2. Take a couple of small sections of hair from the top of your head and tease them until you have enough volume. Once you are done with teasing one section, hairspray the part from behind and let it hang down forward to get it out of the way.

* If you are not so sure how to tease your hair, go to the bottom of this post to see a tutorial video!!

3. Put your teased hair back and gently comb ONLY the surface to make it look nice.

4. Bring a half of your hair to the back and twist it one time. Then, push it up little bit to give a pouf.

5. Make a criss cross with bobby pins right under the twist and secure it. Use more bobby pins if needed to put your hair in place. You can use a hair clip instead of a bobby pin, too!

 

6. Hairspray the pouf and you are finished!!

Tips for Teasing Your Hair

  • If it is hard to add volume by teasing your hair, apply hair wax or hairspray first. This will make your hair easy to tease! If you are using hairspray, remember to let it get completely dry first.

  2. Hi, Railynn. You do not have to have layers when you tease your hair. Try to tease the roots of your hair if you need more volume!

  3. Um Hey Eri or something there is NO good hairstyle for me do know any other or another website i could use plz and Ty bye and that was not supposed to sound mean srry!

  4. Hi Sabrina J,
    I guess you are saying my hairstyles are not working for you. I’m sorry but I will keep posting more hairstyles. Hope there is gonna be something you can use!

  5. Hi Shannen,
    I guess you can use a gel instead of hairspray, but I don’t really use a gel, pretty much only wax and spray. Hairspray is good for holding the look after you are done with styling your hair. A gel might be a little harder to style your hair. But it’s totally up to you!!

  6. THANK YOU FOR THIS, IT’S SO HELPFUL, AND IM BLACK AND I HAVE TO DO A WHITE PERSON’S HEAD AND I’VE NEVER SEEN THIS DONE BEFORE SO THANK YOU!! BUT I HAVE A QUESTION, DO WHITE PEOPLE MIND HAVING THERE HAIR TEASED OR DO SOME PEOPLE NOT LIKE IT? DOES IT KNOT THERE HAIR UP AFTERWARDS??

  8. Hi ANNE,
    I’m fine with teasing my hair, but it may cause a little damage or knots on your hair. I try to comb my hair towards one direction. Don’t tease your hair by combing back and force.

  16. Kaitlyn, heres how to get the wavy hair:

    Start with freshly washed hair, still damp. Get your hair up as if you were putting it up in a ponytail, but don’t put it up yet. Then twist it, and tie it up in a bun. Leave it like that for about a hour, then take it out. Voila! Wavy hair^^

  17. Why dont you just use bump its. It will be easier and it wont take so long !!!!

  18. Yeah thats a Great Hair Style!!! And you Could even use bumpits they r great to use in your hair!!! Great hair style !!!!!!

  19. I have curly medium length hair and I want my hair to be just wavy. Why do I do. ?

  20. I have straight hair that I don’t color and I swear that Shielo’s Volume Line gives me more swing to my hair when I use it. I also use Shielo’s Volume Hairspray (its Flexible Hold) on my daughter sometimes and I notice that her flyaways are much neater after using the Shielo brand.

    The scent is AMAZING!

    I have also gotten compliments on the scent from people when my hair was dry. I recommend this shampoo to anyone who is looking to stretch out their haircut visits. Your hair stays healthy and smells great.
