As the prom season approaches, finding the perfect hairstyle can be a daunting task. One popular choice is the half-up half-down style, which offers a blend of elegance and simplicity. In this guide, renowned hairstylist Linda Miller shares her invaluable expertise on achieving this chic look.

Hair Type and Face Shape Considerations

Linda underscores the importance of considering your hair type and texture when opting for the half-up half-down style. β€œFor fine hair, I recommend using a texture spray or dry shampoo to create volume and hold while styling,” she advises. Conversely, those with thick or curly hair can benefit from using smoothing products to tame frizz and flyaways.

Accessorizing for the Perfect Look

When it comes to face shape, Linda suggests that the half-up half-down style can be tailored to suit various shapes. For a heart-shaped face, she recommends leaving some loose pieces around the face to soften the look. For round or square faces, pulling the hair back tightly can elongate the face, while adding volume on top can balance out a long or oval face shape.
