1. Tutorial to make half up half down braids

tools you need: you need to prepare some heat styling tools so that you can try to make the hairstyle more beautiful. Prepare a curling iron, a flat iron, and a hair dryer. For styling tools, you will need a styling spray or gel, and for other small tools, you will need small clips, combs, and hair strings. If you are worried about damage to your hair from the heat styling device, you can also prepare a bottle of heat styling protection spray and spray it evenly on your hair before you start.

Step 1 Start with clean hair

start with clean hair
Since you are choosing a hairstyle to go with your event dress, your hair must be clean so that the look lasts longer. After washing and blow drying your hair, spray a heat protection spray on your hair to better protect it from the heat styling equipment. Take out your curling iron and curl your hair from the ends to the roots, and don't forget to stop for a few seconds when you get to the roots. When you've got the perfect curls, you're ready for the next step.

Step 2 Braids

Half up half down braids are made by taking out some hair from the front part of your head and putting it into a braid, so the second thing you need to do is to draw a diagonal line for your braid so that the hair at the back stays in place and doesn't collapse, by spraying some styling spray on the hair at the back.


Keeping the hair in the back from collapsing will add volume to your overall look and look more voluminous and full. As you braid your hair, you can take some hair out of the back of the onion in moderation and braid it into the braid so it will look more coordinated and natural.


The bottom part will also be fuller. As you continue to weave, you can pull your hair loose to make the braid look fluffy and natural.

Step 3 Secure the braid


After the braid is done, comb the hair at the back to smooth it out and make sure the hair is not collapsed before securing the braid. Before fixing the braid, pull the braid loose so it won't be too tight and strangle your scalp, and it will look more beautiful. Once you've chosen a place to fix it, take out the bobby pin and fix it, and do the same with the other side of the hair. But make sure that on the other side of the braid, your technique is the same.

Step 4 Styling

Once both sides of your hair are braided, tug on the braid a little more to make sure the braid is around your hair. After this, take out your styling spray and spray it evenly through your hair to keep it voluminous and curly. At this point, you have completed the process of making all the half up half down braids.

What hair do you use for half up half down?

The standard hair weave they use is the half up, half down wig. This way covers half of the head, from the center down, and leaves their natural hair in front for styling. This method adds volume and length to the back of their head. You may go to your local salons to get your half up, half down hair weave.

Which hair will suit me?

If your face shape is round, go for a long bob with a center part to break up the roundness and elongate the face shape. Try to avoid haircuts that hug the face, as these will only accentuate the roundness. Another option, is to go for a long side swept bang or an asymmetric cut. This also breaks up the round shape.

What is the new 2022 haircut?

"For 2022, pixie cuts are not as popular. The trend seems to be more of a 'bixie cut. ' It's equal parts bob and equal parts pixie," Korab says. Like the name suggests, the length of this cut is between a bob and a pixie, but make no mistake: the texture is more pixie-esque.
