Half Up Half Down Prom Hairstyle Styling Steps

This Half Up Half Down Prom Hairstyle Is Easy To Style And Modify
  1. First a comb to gather all of the hair on either side of your head above the ears. Now pull into a half ponytail that rests high on the crown of your head.
  2. Next join this hair to form a very tight angled ponytail. Now take your 2nd finger of your right hand. Placing 1 1/2 inches below the new half ponytail base on top of the ponytail.
  3. Fold the entire half pony up towards the ceiling and over your finger forming a small loop. Secure the new hair loop in place.
  4. Still holding the new hair loop use bobby pins to secure the top of the loop in place. Remove your fingers and flatten the loop softly against your head.
  5. Carefully pin the bottom of the loop. This allows the ringlets to lift higher up at the back of your crown.
  6. Hold the ringlets with a pinned seam.  So that the ringlets gently cascade down your remaining hair. Carefully clip this cascading hair out of the way.
  7. Dive the remaining hair from the bottom into two equal sections. With a part straight down the middle.
  8. Next pull first one and then the other section of the two bottom hair sections. Pulling up and over the half pony section. So that your hair is now up near the base of the half pony. Secure each section once in position.
  9. Pin each section of the bottom hair sections. Allowing the ringlets to cascade down from the base of the first half pony. You can remove the clips now.
  10. Follow by using your fingers to blend and merge the hair together. Blend in with the ringlets from the bottom sections of your hair.

Finishing Touches

Allow long sections to cascade in tendrils down around your face. But if you prefer your tendrils to have tighter curl use a small barreled curling iron.

Finish off by misting with hair shine. Optional, spritz with hairspray for long lasting hold.
