Can’t decide whether to put your hair up or down? Half updos are the answer. They let you showcase your long locks while also keeping strands away from your face. There are half updos for special events, and there are those you can wear every day. If you want a simple half up hairstyle that’s chic yet casual, learn how to make the half ponytail. Get your brushes and styling tools ready. Here we go.
After washing, spray TONI&GUY Heat Protection Mist on damp hair. This step is a must before you blow dry or curl your hair to prevent heat damage.
Blow dry your hair while finger-combing it so the warm air reaches even the inner sections of your hair.
Get your barrel curler and make waves on the bottom part of your hair. Curl your hair one small section at a time. Wrap each section of hair around the curler for about three seconds, then release. Repeat until all sections of your hair have been curled.
After making waves, finger-comb your hair to make sure all strands are in place.
Gather hair on top
Divide your hair into two horizontal sections. Gather hair from your forehead and temples and tie it in a high ponytail using an elastic.
Hide your hair tie
Wrap a small section of hair from your ponytail around your elastic. This will make your hairstyle look more chic and polished. Secure with a bobby pin.
Make it high
Put one or two bobby pins at the back of your ponytail to make it higher. The bobby pins will act as additional support for your ponytail
