How to create an LA twist

A half-up, half-down look is the perfect balance between an elegant up-do and a dramatic down-do. Whether you’re going out on the town and getting dressed up or you want an extra-special day look, this style is grown up and glamorous. Often seen on A-listers like Jessica Alba, remember to keep the look on-trend by brushing out the waves so they look soft and not too over-done. And don’t forget to finish with some medium-hold hairspray (not firm hold – no-one wants crispy hair!)
