This is a great looking half up half down hairstyle for long hair types. There is a lot going on with this style. It might take you a while to style it but once you break it down into steps, it will not be so hard. The hair has been curled with hot rollers and then pinned up high on the crown area. This creates the illusion of a bun which will help create height for this look. The height in this style will suit small round face shapes best. Small sections of curls are left to hang down, creating a softer look. Our model has kept her natural hair color and has added some lighter highlights to this look which brightens her skin tone and brights out the natural color of her mesmerizing eyes.
This hairdo is extraordinarily adaptable and goes well with practically any makeup style. The face is beautifully shaped by the waves. Try creating a natural smokey eye with light and warm browns, adding a pink lip, and a dash of highlighter for a more understated appearance. Use a dramatic graphic liner with a glitter lid if you want to go for a more daring appearance. Don't forget to complete this bold look with a crisp contour and a striking lip.
