Casual Half Up Long Curly Hairstyles
A long casual curly updo can be described as soft, sexy, loose, carefree and not too overdone. Generally, the top half or sides of the hair is pulled, tied, or pinned back and the back is left out to hang down below the shoulders. Bangs can be swept over or across or just tied back completely. This type of hairstyle can be worn everyday at any event. These types of half up hairstyles are generally curled, pinned, tied, teased, gelled, waxed, brushed out, and lacquered into place. Styling time varies depending on how much work is done to the hair, meaning it can be as little as 10 minutes for natural curly hair types, or up to 1 hour and 30 minutes if your hair needs to be curled using rollers or heat appliances. These looks are great for keeping the hair out of the eyes and off the face, and they also hold their shape really well and prevent moisture sending them flat and lifeless.
Sienna looks great with this relaxed and sexy hairstyle. Her long hair was pinned half-up, half-down to keep her side sections from falling onto her face and her bangs were styled to both sides of her face to hide her high hairline. To finish, Sienna's natural waves were used through the ends of her hair to give her style a casual finish.

Jessica tried this sassy style at the launch of Blockbuster Total Access and looked great! Her hair was left to sit below shoulder length and was slightly layered at the very ends to help add shape and movement. Lots of root lift was added on top as her hair was swept into a half-up, half-down style and her bangs were blow-dried to direct backwards and cover her ears for a sassy finish. This hairstyle is a great option for those with a rounder face as it will help to create a more oval look.
