Day 32: Clipped Half Up

Go-to formal style.

The second in our series of go-to styles is a simple style for formal occasions. I mentioned before that a half-up is a perfect style when you need to look pretty and put together, but still want to show off your length! This style is great for dances, church, formal dinners… The list is endless. You can do it in seconds with a pretty clip, and it always looks wonderful.

1) Pull hair from your hairline to the back and gather in a ponytail. I like to take a section that runs from eyebrow to eyebrow, but is very thin. This creates the pulled back look while leaving volume around your face.
2) Secure with barrette.

Done! Be careful when removing the barrette, as it can sometimes snag on hair.
