Braids on Braids

With a Scrunchie
Scrunchies are making a comeback—and we’re definitely on board. This half-back style will come together in seconds and couldn't be easier.
Use a Scarf
Add a pop of color and touch of your personal style by tying a scarf around your half-up ponytail.
Half-Up Top Knot
For a different take on the top knot, pull back just the top layers and lets the rest of your curls fall naturally.
A half-up ponytail allows you to add plenty of volume to the roots.
This style can still work for short hair. Take the face framing pieces and pin them back for a loose half-up style.
Half-Up French Braid
Braid just the top section of your hair to keep it out of your face and let the rest of your strands fall straight.
Half French Twist

Use a Barrette
Create an instant and easy formal look by pulling hair half-back and adding a sparkly clip.
