How to Pull Off the Half Bun
She definitely didn't wake up like this.

When was the last time you uttered the words “half up, half down”? In the year...mmm...2003?

Well, we’re here to tell you the hairstyle (fatigued by weddings and proms and butterfly clips the world over) has returned--but in a new way.

Introducing the half bun.

It’s loose, casual and super popular with celebs. Here’s how to pull it off.

1. Create some beachy waves. This isn’t a time for stick-straight strands. Air dry your locks and use a sea-salt spray (or dry shampoo) and curling wand to add some effortless kinks.

2. Keep the bun low. We love a topknot as much as the next girl. But this particular bun should rest back on the crown of your head. Right where you separate the two sections of hair--that’s where it should go.

3. Make one that works for you. Everyone’s personal texture (and preferred style of bun) is unique. Pull your hair through a rubber band two and a half times, or circle your hair first and then wrap the rubber band around that. However you normally rock a messy situation...

4. Finish with a light-hold spray. Again, these are not the overly perfect tendrils of a homecoming dance. You want to keep the strands in check while also keeping the “I woke up like dis” vibe.
