After the craze over our ‘7 Days Of Braids’ I teamed up with my bestie to bring you some half up hairstyles. The half up trend is going strong and we decided to show off some cute half up hairstyles with the braid incorporated of course since Kelsey is the queen of braids. Here are some quick and easy ways to keep your hair out of your face.
Half Up Fishtail Braid
This look is perfect for day or night. Straighten your hair and take a section and use an elastic to secure it. Pin side pieces crossed over to hide the elastic. Fishtail braid the pieces together and secure with an elastic. Gently pull on the edges of the braid to loosen it.
Half Up Braided Bun
This is one of my favourites! The half up bun is so popular right now and I love this braided version. Secure section of hair with elastic. Braid that section of hair and secure with another elastic. Wrap the braid into a bun and secure with bobby pins or spin pins. Gently pull on pieces of the bun to loosen where needed.
Half Up French Braid
This is super quick and can easily be thrown into a ponytail for physical activity. Section off the top portion you want to braid. Tie the rest of your hair with an elastic to keep it out of the way while you braid. French braid the top section and secure with an elastic.
Half Up Bun
Love this look it’s perfect for a night out! Follow all the steps from the half up French braid. Twist and pin the hair into a bun. Pull pieces of the braid to loosen and give it more volume.
Half Up Simple Braid
Can’t french braid? Then this look is perfect for you! Secure the section of hair with an elastic. Wrap hair around the elastic to hide it and secure with bobby pin. Braid the section and secure with the elastic. Pull on the sides of the braid to loosen it.
