Long hair provides an opportunity to try out a wide variety of hairstyles including the half up curly hairstyles – a rage with the young and adult alike. Once you get the hang of it they are easy to do and you get an elegant and sensuous look with little time and effort. And what’s more they suit all kinds of occasion from a casual day out to a formal ball without requiring constant touch and repair.
For casual occasions you can simply take hair from the top sides, pull them back to be tied by a barrette while you leave the rest of it hanging down the back. This style looks deceptively simple and yet deepens the tresses at the back making them look beautiful. You can also pull parts of your into a ponytail and leave the rest free. The bangs in front could be left free or tied back to suit the occasion or your mood. Half up curly hairstyles can transform one’s looks from simple to sexy, carefree and chic with very need for effort or attention to detail. In fact the blend between carefree and designed style is what makes it so interesting.
Half up curly hairstyles can also be great for formal occasions. You can pull up the hair and put it up at top or one side while leaving long tresses all around. They look full and sexy at the same time. You can keep your bangs free or tie them back to suit the style you are planning for the day. For a little more elaborate styling you can make an appointment with a professional stylist. Depending on the style you choose, its intricacies and the appliances used (rollers and heat appliances), it can take anything between half an hour to more than an hour to finish the whole look. A professional styling would be more structured and neat than an impromptu home made one but in either case this hairstyle simple oozes style and elegance.
Whether you are trying out half up curly hairstyles or getting it done by a stylist the usual methods applied for this hairstyle are curling, pinning or tying the hair after brushing it well, using gels and waxes to soften it and tame it into the design you want and then lacquer it into place.
The beauty of half up curly hairstyles is that it can look glamorous without being too dressy and simple without losing the sexy touch. You can curl or twist parts of your hair temporarily, tie them up or pull them all to one side. Or you can braid your hair up, or put some hair into a braided bun while the rest is free down your back. Shorter hair can also sport multiple curls and twists on top with only some tresses while the rest remain simple and free.
