Best Half Up Half Down Holiday Styles

We have positively fallen in love with the half-up buns and half-up ponytails that were seen everywhere this summer. Here's how to carry the styles into winter and keep them festive for the holiday season.

The 90s have been a recent inspiration for many hairstyles. Although the half-up ponytail and half-up bun (a.k.a. hun), are often a tad grunge, they can still be transformed to look charming and elegant. These looks are simple and easy to do, and you can give them a feminine touch by "decorating" your hair with whatever accessories you want - just like a Christmas tree.

The key word: accessory

For the half-up ponytail, make sure your hair is freshly washed and brushed out. It can be left either wavy or straight, as it's the accessories that will make it extra special. Use a headband, a hair jewel, or hairpin with silver or gold accents to add a romantic touch to the final look.

For the half-up bun, add some volume to your hair with a texturizing product (a powder or a spray). To make it classy, use a ribbon in the color and texture of your choice to tie your hair. If you're feeling nostalgic, opt for a throwback scrunchie from the 90s.

If you'd like to make your hun or half-up ponytail even trendier and even more festive, you can try glitter roots. The look has been popping up everywhere on social networks, however we advise that if you decide to try it out, spray your hair with lots of hairspray so that the glitter stays intact the whole night.
