Down? Up? How about somewhere in between? Lots of us are opting for hair that’s neither here nor there this autumn, with Google searches for “half-up half-down hairstyles” spiking by 70 percent. Everyone from Sydney Sweeney to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has walked the red carpet sporting a half-up hairstyle in recent months–elevating this easy to do at home look to an ultra glamorous level. A great look to try if you’re keen to keep your hair off your face but don’t want the formality of a full-on up-do, the half-up pony lends a touch of polish without appearing try-hard.
Lean into the girlish aesthetic by securing your half ponytail with a velvet ribbon, or make like Sarah Jessica Parker, who recently fastened an oversized satin bow in hers to attend a ballet performance. Huntington-Whiteley’s version, featuring a knot at the top and glossy waves at the ends, is a perfect example of expensive-looking hair. You can also make use of a ’90s claw clip, á la Olivia Rodrigo, or try a twisted bun, like Gemma Chan.
However you do it, the half-up half-down is perfect for party season and beyond. Scroll on for celebrity inspiration.
