GET THE LOOK: Half Up, Half Down Rope Braid Bardot

Create a sexy half up half down in moments. On the back of the Royal Wedding there have been so many requests for a version of the Half up Half Down sported by Kate and Pippa Middleton. The idea of a half up half down is so versatile and can be worn in many different ways.

“Here I’ve shown you something that is not your normal conventional half up half down. I wanted to channel a sexy feeling so gave it a touch of Bardot at the crown. The texture of the hair can be worn in anyway, it’s the technique I’m showcasing here. I curled the hair because the model’s hair was particularly unruly but it can be worn straight or really curly. The real intricate detail is in the rope braid that is wrapped around itself and pinned to the head. Take two large pieces of hair from the back of the ear and braid, don’t forget to leave out that key piece for in the middle for balance.”
