If you can’t decide whether to wear your hair up or down for your upcoming string of events on your agenda, good news: You don’t have to. The braided half-updo, one of our latest street-style discoveries, is an awesome mix of practicality and cheeky style. The look features a high half-pony (an oldie but goodie) interspersed with a pair of hidden accent braids on the sides, for an overall hairstyle that tickles our boho fancy in all the right places.
A perkier, more casual variation on the regular half-pony, the braided half-updo also has a slight trompe l’oeil effect, where the tail of your ponytail hides any and all seams from view—giving your mane a bit more texture and personality. Some can view this look as the gateway to box braids or other more complex rope styles; we call it our new go-to look for any occasion!
