Make these half updos your Valentine hairstyles
1. Half Up Criss Cross
Just twist sections of your hair, pin them, and you’re all set!Jazz up your long, straight hair by going for this ‘do. To create the half up criss cross hairstyle, you just need to twist sections of your hair and pin them on your crown. That’s it! It’s easy to do and won’t take up too much of your time, so you don’t need to spend hours getting ready.
Editor’s tip: Prep your hair by washing it with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Conditioner. These products will help make your hair smooth, straight, and frizz-free—ready for any hairstyle.
2. Twisted Ponytail Half Updo
You can wear this ‘do both on a casual date and fancy one. Tweak your usual half ponytail and upgrade it to a twisted ponytail half updo. You simply tie a small section of your hair with an elastic and wrap a couple of sections around it. Like the half up criss cross, creating this ‘do only takes five to ten minutes. You won’t get stressed getting your hair done for your Valentine’s date.
3. Half Updo with Braid
You can make your half up braid a little loose for a more laid-back look.Love braids? Put the upper half of your hair in one, while letting the rest cascade down your back. The half up half down with braid is also ideal when your Valentine’s date involves a quaint lunch at a garden restaurant or a fun picnic in your own yard. Pair this hairstyle with your favorite flowy dress to complete the dainty, feminine look.
Editor’s tip: Make braiding easier by spritzing TONI&GUY Sea Salt Spray on your hair before styling. The added texture will give your hair more grip, keeping the braid from unraveling.
4. Twisted Crown Braid
If you have a lob or shoulder-length hair, try the twisted crown braid. It’s similar to the twisted ponytail half updo; the twisted section is just bigger, making it resemble a crown. Add texture to the rest of your hair by creating beach waves. Doing so will amp up the romantic look as well.
5. Waterfall Braid
A waterfall braid hairstyle combines the chic and the elegant, letting you exude a confident vibe. Are you up for a bit of a challenge? Put your hair in a waterfall braid on Valentine’s day. It’s a bit more challenging than other half updos, but the effort is worth it. Imagine yourself weaving a mat—the process of creating a waterfall braid is similar. The result is a chic and elegant hairstyle that will surely make your beau fix his eyes on you.
Editor’s tip: Frequent styling can damage your tresses. Prevent this by using Sunsilk Strong & Long Shampoo and Sunsilk Strong & Long Conditioner. These products can help make your hair not only beautiful but also strong.
6. Slicked Back
Show off your facial features and your dazzling smile by putting your hair into a slicked-back half updo. This Valentine hairstyle is also perfect if you have a round face shape.
7. Half Updo with Bun
Look stunning with a section of your hair flowing while the rest is up in a dainty bun. Complete the romantic look by curling the tips of your hair.
8. Half Updo with Wispy Bangs
It is a great combination of waves, wispy bangs, and long hair. The waves give you a more feminine look while the bangs exude an aura of openness and being free-spirited.
