Half Up, Half Down Bun

This is a perfect hairstyle for those days when you’re wanting something a little fancier than normal, but don’t have time to do a ton of braiding or curling.

  • To start off, pull your hair back in a half up, half down style, secured with an elastic. You can leave it like that, or I like to flip it (pick up the hair below the elastic, and flip it up and through the hair above the elastic to create a slightly twisted look.
  • Next, separate the hair that’s secured by the elastic into two sections. Twist those sections together like the picture below.

Then, twist that into a bun, pinning it in place. Don’t worry if it’s a little messy! You can leave it like that, or you can always tidy it a bit later.

  • Tie a hair scarf or ribbon around the bun, making sure it’s tight enough so it won’t fall off. Secure any loose pieces of hair with extra pins.

That’s it!

If you try it, I’d love to see it! If you’re on Instagram tag me in any of your pictures trying my hairstyles and I’ll share it in my stories!
