Oh! Don’t you think life would be simpler if we did not have to make so many decisions? When you get up in the morning, you have to decide if you want to exercise or sleep longer? When you eat breakfast, the choice is about what to eat. And then comes the most important decision of any girl or woman’s day – what to wear? And once you manage to pin this down, then comes the question of how to do your hair.
This can depend on many factors like the length of your hair, the texture, and the way you have styled it. And another factor to be considered is whether you are having a good hair day or a bad hair day. Once you have weighed all these factors, then comes the question – do I wear my hair up or down? Well, we have some good news here – you can wear it half up and half down.
It is like having your cake and eating it too, so to speak, in terms of hair, that is. If you have thick hair, then you can try attractive thick hair hairstyles to try this year, which should ideally include half up and half down hairstyles. Ideally, speaking hair that is neither too long nor too short is the best length to try all sorts of hairstyles.
Evergreen Top Knot Hairstyles
There are many easy and quick work hairstyles for medium hair that are not only smart but also attractive and could offer you the advantage of being half up and half down. The thing about hairstyles that are half up and half down is that they can be as smooth or as sleek as you want to be or as untidy and casual as you want them to be. If you do not believe us, then you can look at cute and messy beach hairstyles for summer that will make you want to reach out for the comb and brush.
There Are Many Ways To Go About Creating A Half Up And Half Down Hairstyle:
Half plait and half-open
The world of braids and plaits offers many choices, but the fact is having a tight plait or braid done of your entire hair can make you look more severe than you are in the mood for. This kind of hairstyle may not be right for all the moods and outfits that you have on. This is where the half up and half down hairstyles come into place. Imagine if you could save a bad hair day by braiding the central part of it into a complicated and pretty braid or plait and leaving the rest of the hair down. This way, not only would you be saving what would have been a disastrous hair day but making the whole thing frame your face and neck in an adorable way.
Half ponytail and half-open
This is somewhat of a childish hairstyle to try in the sense that if you are going with a high ponytail, then you would be emulating a hairstyle that was very popular with teens in the seventies. But if that is not the effect you want to create, then you can tie your ponytail to lie flat at the center of your head with the use of a flat clip or a thinner hair tie and leave the rest of the hair to flow freely. This hairstyle also has the additional advantage of ensuring that small bits of hair do not stray to your face and distract from whatever work you are doing.
Bun and open
This is a bit of a bold look though essentially casual, and will have people gawking at you. All you need to do is draw part of the hair in the center and back of your head (leaving some out at the bottom) and make it into a loose knot or bun at the top of the head. You can brush out the rest of the hair to look really different and striking.
