First half-up pony tails came into our lives, now half-up buns! This trend is becoming more and more popular, and we are loving it. While this is a messy-hair type of look, you can also make it more sleek depending on what you’re going for. Here are some different ways to try out this style.

Low bun

Grab the top half of your hair and pull it down and back, creating a low and loose bun. The simplest way to add a little something to your second day hair.

Braid it back

Put a fun twist on the half bun by adding a French braid. Gather your hair about two inches above your ear and braid it back as far as you would like the bun to be. Cute!

Add tons of volume

Tease the top of your hair before you pull it back to add a messy and voluminous feel. Bed head at its finest.

Pull your hair back a little tighter for a more sleek look. This can also be a good choice for a more formal event, as it looks more put together than some other styles.

Position your bun on the top of your head tightly, then pull out some of your wispy front pieces that frame your face. Messy yet put together.

Add a fishtail

Tie the top half of your hair into whatever style of bun you want, but then add a fishtail braid (or any braid) to the remaining hair. This boho style can spice up your hair in only a few minutes.
