Okay, so we were searching for some beautiful ‘dos and stumbled upon these three lovely half up hairstyles that can make every girl look pretty using just a few smart tricks. Therefore, it’s time you snap out from your old styling routine and try something a little different. Check out these lovely bloggers at work and get inspired!

Braided half-up

Amber Lynne from barefootblonde.com bewitched us with a hippie, super-cool braided half-up! Start by backcombing your hair at the crown of the head. Take a small hair section from one side and braid it. Secure it with a clear elastic band. Leave a few pieces in front, around your face, for a boho finish! Next, take two sections, one of each side of the braid you have already made, and plait them in the direction your hair is going to be. Secure it! Then, pull back both sides of your hair and secure!

Now, it’s time for the element of surprise! In fact, this is that special twist that makes all the difference! Take one lower hair section from the right side, behind your ear, and braid. Next, pull the braid on the opposite side across your head. Tuck the ends under the other braid and pin into place. Done! It is so adorable and it only takes a few minutes to pull off!

Half-up waterfall braid

Okay, so this is a really gorgeous ‘do and even if it might sound rather difficult to achieve, trust us, the result is definitely worth it. An absolutely amazing, ethereal and versatile style that works great for both daytime and formal events! We totally love this look that spiced up our day! Kelly from HairGirl247 shows us how to create this half-up waterfall braid. Have a nosey!

So, begin by making a side parting. Take one hair section from the left side of your head and part it into three pieces. The trick that gives that beautiful cascading effect is dropping the section of hair at the bottom as you braid your hair three times. Keep plaiting and once you get in the back use some bobby pins to secure. Next, do the same thing on the other side of your head and pin into place. Leave your hair a little looser and romantic!

Fancy rope braid half-up hairstyle

If you’re looking for a lovely summer style, this one is undoubtedly a smart choice! Well, this is not cute, it is jaw-dropping! And justbebexo.com shares with us the right steps to achieve the look. Start by brushing your hair making sure it is all smooth! Take a piece of hair in the front and divide it into two sections. Now, twist the two strands together counter-clockwise and twist one of the strands clockwise. Repeat until reaching the ends and secure the braid with an elastic band. If you did this right, your twist won’t unwrap.

Next, grab a hair section under the braid and make another rope braid! Do the exact same thing on the other side of your head. Now, divide the top half of your hair, pull two of the side braids and secure them into a pony. Create a little hole above the elastic and flip your ponytail in it. Gather a layer of hair below the first one and include the remaining side braids. Tie everything together and do the same flipping trick as you did before. You can also dress up your ‘do with some pretty hair accessories. Remove all the elastics you have used to secure the braids.
