Half Up, Half Down, All Good

Recently, I’ve been really loving the half-up, half-down look. To me, this hairstyle is the epitome of timeless elegance. I mean, you know something is a classic when both Audrey Hepburn and Kate Middleton were/are fond of it! I used to wear this style all the time, and now I like to do so whenever my hair cooperates (read: minimal fly-aways) enough. Thankfully, the internet is chock full of amazing inspiration! Below are some of my favorite takes on the half-up, half-down hairstyle.

I came across this Audrey gem on Pinterest a few days ago and have been obsessing ever since. The volume are the crown – to mention the perfectly curled ends! – are to die for.

What can I say? She’s Kate the Great, and this flawless hairstyle only adds to her aura. *bow down*
