The half-up hair style is a go-to for brides everywhere! Weather you are hiring a hairstylist or doing-it-yourself, this incredibly easy hairstyle turns out oh-so-pretty! And even better, this style is flattering on hair of all lengths from long and luscious to a short and sassy bob. Get your bridesmaids and flower girl in on the fun and have them get similar half-up dos. Want more drama? Add a little more volume and rock a mini pouf, or try a simple twist and big or tight curls to make this style uniquely yours. What style are you doing on your wedding day?
HALF-UP DO TUTORIAL
To freshly washed, dry hair add mousse to roots for added volume and blow dry that in. Next put serum on the ends. Pull half of your hair back and before you pin it, push it up a little to add the pouf. Next secure with bobby pins that match your hair color and then curl the bottom half to your liking (this wand is amazing for curls, added bounce and best of all.. will last all day!). Style the short pieces in the front to frame your face, spray with hairspray and you’re done! If you have a hair clip have one of your bridesmaids pin it in for you.
