    The Half Up Wedding Hairstyle Tutorial

    The Half Up and Half Down Wedding Hairstyle

    4 Easy Steps to the Perfect Half Up Wedding Hairstyle

    It’s amazing how fast a few bobby pins can transform a hairstyle. The half up hairstyle, as a wedding hairstyle, is picture perfect because it works with nearly every neckline and silhouette, and it gives the added bonus of being able to stabilizing the veil. The half up hairstyle is easily customizable from polished to casual, but maybe the best feature is that the guests will easily be able to see the brides stunning face.

    The half up, half down hairstyle is one of my favorite day to day hairstyles as well, because it’s both chic and easy to do. I am able to wear my hair down and the half up hairstyle highlights my cheekbones. For special events, I gather the two sections of hair from the sides of my head and use it to form a bun.

    Your wedding hairstyle doesn’t need to be complicated or high maintenance. You can have easy and free flowing tresses with minimal fuss. The best news is, you can do all of these hairstyles yourself, which means you also get to keep some more dollars in your pocket. Now, who doesn’t like saving money?

    The Basics

    Step 1. Usually second day hair is easier to work with. Spritz your hair with a bit of hairspray. Pull a section of hair back from each side of your head using your fingers for a natural tousled look, or use a fine toothed comb for a more polished look. If you want to create height, backcomb a section at the crown of your head, spritz with hairspray and smooth over the top to finish. Many women like to create height, I personally like a more smooth, polished look.

    Step 2. Fasten it in back with a pretty clip, barrette, brooch, and pins.

    Step 3. Gently pull your hair through the barrette from the bottom and adjust hair at the crown. Brush or finger comb through the ends.

    Step 4. Secure with another spritz of hairspray.
