Half-up half-down hairstyles: It’s the far-too-often ignored genre that has the potential to completely transform your look. By giving you the best of both worlds, you can keep your hair down, which is a bonus for anyone who considers it their security blanket, while keeping stray strands out of your face. What's better, it works for bobs, lobs, and longer lengths. Pixies can even get in on the action if bobby pins and ponytails are put into play.
