Until recently, I didn't understand why I got so many compliments on my "half up/ half down" hair. It's one of the styles in my lazy hair rotation because of how easy and mindless it is. But one day last month I was in Target, so basic, and a woman in line behind me asked, "Excuse me, where did you get your hair done? I would love to get my hair done like that for my friend's wedding next weekend, I love that you can't see any bobby pins!"
I thought, "HUH?! This style took four pins and a lotta dry shampoo because I haven't washed in days on days." But instead I told her I'd post a tutorial on the blog by October and gave her the YSAJ site.
So HEY Jaclyn, hope those new bath towels are all you've ever dreamed of!
Let's get to it!
^^ BEGIN >> by collecting the hair from your crown, leaving out the hairline, and hair above the ears. Leaving hair out feels less, flower girl-y from the front. A good rule of thumb is to leave out two finger widths of hair from the hairline. Make sure to leave hair above the ear as well!
^^ Secure that section with two pins in opposite directions, holding the hair in place.
^^ Next take a section of hair to the right of the pins. Place a pin onto the section, a few inches away from the scalp. Pull that section over the first section, and secure it beneath the first pins.
^^ Repeat on the left side.
What do you think? Would you try this look on yourself? It's great for running to Target on a Sunday, or attending a wedding, super easy, and not at all time consuming. If you try this look at home please post a selfie on insta and tag @YourStylistAJ
