Half up Half Down Hairstyle with Extensions
2018 is the year for the half up and half down hairstyle. Everyone from Jennifer Lopez, Kim and Khloe Kardashian, to Ariana Grande are rocking this voluminous half up half down hairstyle! It is super cute, glamorous, and such an easy hairstyle for when you still want to rock fantastic hair but have dirty hair! I love doing this hairstyle around the 3rd day after washing my hair. This is around the time when my hair is starting to get too oily and my blow dry is not as fresh. When hair is too clean, it may not hold heated curls as well. Believe it or not, dirty hair is easier to style!
You can do this hairstyle without extensions, but I like the fuller look. I have layers in my hair, so the gaps were more noticeable the higher I put my half pony. An easy way to fix that is by adding some extensions upside down, so when you flip them, they are going in the same direction as your hair. If this sounds confusing, watch my video:
A quick trick that can upgrade your look is to spray a temporary color hairspray around your hairline or to fill it in with eyeshadow the same color as your base color! I find the color hairspray to have a better result but if you don’t have any a shadow is better than nothing. By adding some extra color give a more youthful and healthy look.
I used the BIO IONIC hair tool, it works amazing! It gets hot right away and I feel like it doesn’t damage my hair as much. I have been using it for years and it still works like new. I got it on Amazon, its pricier than a lot of other wands and hot tools but this will definitely be the last one you buy.
Tag me if you try this! I would love to see your photos!
