When it comes to clever, easy and glam styles, you can’t really go wrong with the iconic half-up, half-down style. Not only can you wear it virtually anywhere — think from work to weddings — but it takes 10 minutes of less to achieve.
Not sure how to achieve the style? We spoke to Naté Bova, senior stylist at Warren Tricomi Salon, who has worked with everyone from Rosario Dawson to Va$htie and even Zendaya herself, to learn how to get the look.
“Using one-inch sections, keep the iron open and wrap the hair around the iron, leaving the tips of the hair out. For your edges, I recommend Nubian Heritage Grow & Strengthen Edge Taming Taffy ($6.44). Next, take the front half of your hair — parting from ear to ear — and spread the root tamer around the root area.”
“Finally, take a hair tie and make a ponytail towards the top of the head. Wrap a one-inch section of your hair around the ponytail to cover the band. Last, use a bobby pin to fasten the hair you’ve wrapped.”
Now that you know how to do it, will you try it? Let us know in the comments below!
