12 Timeless Half-Up, Half-Down Hairstyles to Try This Summer

There are only a few things in life that are truly universal. But the half-up, half-down hairstyle is a rare exception. It’s one of the most popular hairstyles, worldwide, and is a true crowd pleaser. It’s also the most timeless, practical and versatile look, giving you the best of both worlds: hair out of your face while still showing off the rest of your length.

The half-up half-down hairstyle has been a consistent hairstyle we've seen throughout the years, and it's quite evident that the style isn't going anywhere anytime soon — and for good reason. Ahead are 12 celebrity looks we’ve gathered to help you pull inspiration. To achieve these looks, you will need at least three (3) hair extension bundles. Three bundles will help increase volume and length. 

1. Beyoncé's Crimpled Waves 



This YSK hairstyle broke the internet. Beyoncé first premiered this iconic hairstyle at Coachella 2018, and it's been copied by many ever since. To achieve this crimpled look, use a ceramic hair crimper.

2. Ariana Grande's Flipped Ends



Throwback hairstyles are making a big comeback in 2022, so it's no surprise that flipped out ends have become a popular thing again. A half-up half-down style goes perfectly with this nostalgic hair trend.

3. Kylie Jenner's Gen Z Glam



It's a super simple hairstyle, but the half-up half-down do looks effortlessly glamorous when you style it with loose waves, a beat face, and diamond stud earrings.

4. Nicki Minaj's Bold Genie Moment



Colored hair extensions offer a variety of hairstyles, including this half-up, half-down genie ponytail. Nicki Minaj looks beautiful, as she makes a grand appearance with this vibrant orange hair color. To get this look, purchase She's Happy Hair dye-friendly, 613 Blonde Hair extension bundles.

5. Megan's Tousled Curls



Megan Thee Stallion half-up hairstyle consists of tousled curls and a high ponytail. Texture is key here, so be sure to use texturizing sprays and separate strands after working them in with a curling iron.

6. Ciara's Snatched High Pony



To DIY this Body Party singers' snatched half-up, half-down high ponytail hairstyle, separate your hair into two sections — a smaller one that will be pulled into a pony and a thicker section that will be left down. Next, secure the top section at the crown of your head and wrap a tiny piece of hair around the base to hide your hair band.

7. Bella Hadid's Slicked Top Knot



An alternative option to a top knot is this slicked up rendition. It's a tad bit edgier and requires more hair products to get that tight, sleek look, but the payoff is well worth it.

8. Hailey Bieber's Casual Bob



The half-up pony can work for bob and lob-length hair, too. Case in point: This messy coiled ponytail fastened at the crown of Hailey Bieber's head, leaving the rest of her hair down with subtle, tousled honey-kissed strands is pure perfection.

9. Rihanna's Caribbean Waves



Is there anything Rihanna can't pull off? Her take on the half-up, half-down hair comes with some loose beachy waves in a bedhead type of way.

10. Kim K's Super Sleek Vibe



A well-structured, snatched ponytail with zero flyaways instantly attracts attention to the showpiece that is your precious face. And adding a soft curl bump at the bottom of your ponytail makes this half-up, half-down style appear more carefree and laidback.

11. Kelly Rowland' Swept Back Waves



Leaving little to no hairs free to surround your face will help invite attention to not only your beautiful face, but to other parts of your ensemble... like these statement earrings Kelly Rowland is strutting. Get the look with She's Happy Hair Kinky Straight Hair Bundles.

12. Zendaya's Hollywood Romance Curls



To get a look similar to Zendaya, after blow-drying, add in soft waves using a curling iron like Drybar's The Wrap Party Curling & Styling Wand.
