Half-Up, Half-Down Hairstyles for Every Hair Type and Length

Jodie Comer's Proper Pull-Back

This style is kept approachable by the texture at the base. For a well-balanced coif, tease the top of your strands close to your scalp and curl the ends with a large barrel curling iron.

Jessica Chastain's Under Action

Why not mix up the way you wear your top portion of hair? For a more contemporary look, take the front part of your hair and knot it underneath the rear half.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's Romantic Waves

Wade-Smith advises choosing a curled half-up ponytail for more formal events in order to produce a lively or flirtatious half-up.

Kerry Washington's Braided Top-Knot

In addition to being a time-tested, heat-free protective style, box braids are also simple to pull up into a half-up hairstyle. For an equally stylish look as Washington's, tie the top half of your hair in a knot the next time you wear braids.

Kendall Jenner's Barrette Business

Use an extra large barrette to conceal your hair elastic. You'll not only seem like a true fashionista, but it's also a great method to incorporate your hairdo into your ensemble.

Margot Robbie's '70s Waves

Only the real Barbie could make us incredibly envious of her hair. Any half-up, half-down look is made funnier and more playful by Margot Robbie's crimped curls. To achieve the look, use a hair crimper, or for similar waves, leave your hair in a French braid for a few hours or overnight.

Gigi Hadid's Baby Bun

While not the first person to wear a half-up, half-down look at the Met Gala, Gigi Hadid's was undoubtedly the most avant-garde. She opted for a small bun with the tail end flowing down instead of tying her hair up in a full-blown knot.
