You turn to half updos when you can’t decide whether to put your hair up or leave it down. What if you can’t pick between two different hairstyles? Easy! Combine the two, just like what we’re going to show you in this half up half down with braid tutorial. This hairstyle is easy to do. Here’s how.

1

Start with healthy hair

Wash your locks with TRESemmé Detox and Nourish Shampoo and TRESemmé Detox and Nourish Conditioner to help bring back lost nutrients. These products contain natural ingredients that will help keep your hair nourished.

2

Dry hair

Hair is at its weakest when wet. To avoid damage, blow dry your hair before styling it. Finger-comb your hair as you blow dry to make sure the inner sections get dried, too.

3

Divide and conquer

When your hair is completely dry, divide your hair into two horizontal sections. You can brush the lower half of your hair while you hold the upper half to make sure no hair strands get caught in between.

4

Start braiding

Divide the upper section of your hair intro three to create a three-strand braid. Just cross the left section over the middle section, then the right section over the middle section. Easy, right? When you reach the tips, secure your braid with an elastic.

5

Hide the elastic

Slide a bobby pin under your elastic. Then, get a small section of hair, wrap it around the elastic to cover it, and tuck it in the pin.

6

Combat frizz

Make your hairstyle frizz-free by spritzing TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray on your braid.

7

Now, you're ready!
