Half-updos are my go to hairstyles on non-washing days. I just love how they keep the curls out of my face while at the same time I’m able to wear (at least a part of them) down. So here are 5 of my favorite half-updos for curly hair!
N0. 1: The Elegant High Ponytail
Pull the top part of your curls back and fix them with a small hair tie. Then cover the hair tie with a small hair strand – just wrap it around the hair tie, then fix it with a bobby pin
No. 2: The Fishtail Half-Updo
If you think No. 1 is too boring, you should give this one a try:
Instead of leaving your curls in a ponytail, continue to create a fishtail braid. Although I think it looks really pretty, it’s probably not the kind of hairstyle to create early in the morning as it might take a while (the longer your curls, the longer it will take to create this). Similar, but easier is the half-up pull through braid!
No. 3: The Half-Up Bun
To create this hairstyle, pull back the top part of your curls to create a ponytail, which you fix with a small hair tie. Get another hair tie and create a bun. I also like messier versions of this hairstyle!
No. 4: The Elegant Half-Updo
I have seen this hairstyle quite often on straight hair, but I definitely also like the way it looks on curly hair:
For this hairstyle, you will need some bobby pins, but no hair ties: Grab a section from left of your parting line and bring it back while allowing it to lie “flat” on your head. Fix it underneath your curls with 1-2 bobby pins. Then, repeat the same with curls from the other side of your parting line.
No. 5: The French Braid Half-Updo
The last half-updo is for those of you, who can’t get enough of this season’s braided hairstyles:
French braid the front part with your curls from both sides of your parting line, then continue braiding your curls normally. Then fix the two braids with a hair clip.
Feel free to mix any of these half-updos – there are so many possibilities to create beautiful new hairstyles!
