Ideas for Wedding Hairstyles Half-Up
Tracking down that perfect bridal hairstyle can be almost as essential as choosing your dream wedding dress. The wedding ‘do’ that will be most suitable for you is that one which complement your face, dress, hair, shoes, and is also very comfortable and rigid to wear. In this respect, wedding hairstyles half up are ideal since they are a natural combination of full-up updos and left-down hair do’s. The best part is that most of these hairstyles complement a wide range of face shapes and hair textures.

Curly Half-Up Styles
Whether curled or natural, curly hair can be done up in half up hairstyles in so many different ways. Waves or curls usually add a fairy tale-like romantic feel to every bride’s appearance. Leave out some small curls or wisps framing your face. Pull the upper half of the hair to form a loose ponytail or bun. The exterior part of your hair can be allowed to fall down in curly locks.
Another route to take is creating soft curls and pinning them around your head’s front. Twist down thin hair sections and pin them into circular shapes onto the head. This will work really well with short or long hair.
Make tiny French braids or corn rows by making small section partings from the front hair. Each should be a quarter to an eighth of an inch wide and root from the head crown. Then, use small rubber bands or pins to fix the hair in its place where it ends near the crown. Let the rest of the hair in the rubber band to flow in curls at the back. The left-down hair must then be curled at the back to match up with it. It can also be left straight if you wish. This hairstyle works with both short and long hair.
Straight Styles
Sleek and straight hairstyles work very well for half up wedding hairstyles too. Pull your hair’s front half up into a very tight bun or ponytail. Leave the back shiny and super-straight. For evening weddings, this elegant look gets a 10 on 10.
Leave your bangs either hanging straight down over your forehead or creating a one-side parting. The remaining hair should be swept back behind your ears. The bangs must be pinned in their places if you choose to sweep them from the face and away.
If you pull the front part of your hair back into the ponytail, it will work both ways, whether you pull it back straight tight, loosely, or in some other creative manner.
Medieval-Style Braids
This is basically two French braid pigtails on both sides of the head with the bottom half of the hair left loosely hanging. When your braids are completed, you must twist together each of them to form separate buns that will sit beside each other on the head’s back. Another option is making one big bun that will sit on the centre back. Use elastic or pins to secure the bun if required.
This hairstyle is a very clean one that will still preserve that old romantic sensation without being overly fussy. For outdoor weddings and blustery weather, this hairstyle is quite ‘durable.’ It’s also pretty secure and will be able to support large veils. You can add in a few sprigs of dried flowers or baby’s breath to accentuate that medieval theme of the hairstyle.
Twisted-Half Ponytail
This is a very easy modern hairstyle which you can do all by yourself too. The way the half ponytail works is that you start by taking some hair from the upper half of the head. Then, you secure it onto a very low ponytail. This ponytail needs to sit close to the upper 1/3 of your head’s exterior. You can use as little or as much hair as you like. The more hair you take, the thicker the dramatic twist you end up with. The less hair you take, the more fragile and delicate the end effect is. Take your pick.
Insert the finger into the ponytail’s centre right above rubber band. Lift tail so you can pull it into hole that you’ve created with your finger. Pull through hole the tail. Hang this down back of head again. Have both hair and ponytail straightened for sleeker sensation.
Half ponytails can be left as is or jazzed up with jewellery and other accessories, as you see fit.
Accessories
You can incorporate accessories beautifully and easily into most half up half down hairstyles. Those brides that would like to wear a headband or tiara attached to their veils can pull away their hair from the faces using half-ponytails. The hair’s back will be kept fully flowing downwards. Bangs can also be worn. However, that is completely up to your preference.
Dress up the hairstyle by inserting clips or rhinestone barrettes throughout the hairstyle.
Another choice you’ve got is to place flowers – silk or real – throughout your hair. You can place it both on top and get it woven into your locks down the back left.
Wedding hairstyles half up are very versatile. In fact, you can even create elegant updos like the French Twist using the upper half of the hair alone.
