This is a fun and easy half up style that adds instant glam to anything you are wearing without too much work, AND we have worked it out on BOTH lengths of hair. Give it a try!

The items you will need to complete this look:
Teasing Comb
Bobby Pins

Here is a video tutorial done on long hair. See the short hair tips below the video.

The short hair version is done exactly the same! You just need to keep these few things in mind:

1. You will have more loose peices in the front due to the short length.

2. You will not be able to hide the bobby pins as well because you will not have as much hair to camouflage them.

3. The entire look will be more piecey and “funky” in the back. That’s ok! Embrace it and rock it.

Are you loving the short hair vs long hair idea as much as we are? Check out our big poof hair tutorial for both lengths of hair here.
