Hi, girls.  Tina here..

Today’s hair tutorial is going to be fast.  I’m going to show you

how to create 7 quick and easy, everyday half-up hairstyles with curls…

So here we go..

First half-up hairstyle is a Boho, loose, 3 strand braid headband.

Take a small section of hair from the sides and very loosely braid them.

You want the braids to be barely noticeable.

And then just tie them together in the back.

Hairdo number 2..

..is a twisted half-up with voluminous curls.

Just tie the crown back, with an elastic band, then draw the hair upwards to create volume in the hair

before securing it down with 2 bobby pins.

Then alternating sides, and taking small sections..

twist the sides towards the back of the head..

and then loosen up the twists by pulling up some of the strands

before securing them OVER the previous bobby pins.

This half-up actually looks better, the fluffier you can make them.

And #3

Create a long, simple 3 strand braid on the crown area then..

then tie back JUST the sides into a inverted knot half-up, this just means..

that the ends will go through the middle of your ponytail.

Afterwards, simply wrap the braid around the elastic before securing it with a bobby pin.

And #4, is a Fishtail Braid headband.

Just create 2 Fishtail Braids at the sides before securing them into a half-up, half-down hairstyle.

After securing the braids, remove the braids at the end.

If you don’t know how to Fishtail Braid, just click this link..

Right here..

Number 5, for this one

create 4 – 3 strand braids.

2 from the sides and 2 from the crown.

Gather all 4 braids to tie them back.

Then wrap 1 braid around the elastic before securing it with a bobby pin.

Make sure to remove all the braids hanging out of the elastic.

6 half-up is a Waterfall Braid and..

way to complex to explain within 10 sec time period.

So, click HERE to see a Waterfall tutorial that I made few weeks ago.

7th half-up is for you gals with conservative careers.

To create this chic & elegant half-up..

Tie back the crown area, before securing it again with a bobby pin.

This is to create more volume at the top.

Then alternating sides

take small sections and secure them FLAT & TIGHT

with a bobby pin.

When you’re done..

make SURE to push down OR remove all the bobby pins that are showing

except the last 2.  And don’t worry, it’s definitely going to hold up.

Thank you guys for watching..

    Wow, just the thing that I'm looking for. It's so hard to find a look to use everyday, I want to keep it somewhat unique but that's very time-consuming and it takes too much effort on my part. But thank you for your post, such good tips!
