Between a free-flowing look and a regular ponytail sits another great and easy option: the half-up hairstyle. The variation seen on the L’Oreal Paris Runway 03 for L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival (LMFF) was one that breathed new life into the style by way of one of this year’s continuing hair trends, namely wet look hair.
Responsible for the look were LMFF Hair Directors and L’Oreal Professionnel Ambassadors Caterina Di Biase and Brad Ngata. What they created was a half-up, textured wet hairstyle that had a raw street look to it. You could wear this look pretty much anywhere in summer, especially with vibrant prints, edgy denim and an attitude of effortless cool. If you like this 2013 hairstyle, we’ve got the how-to guide for you after the break.
How to: half-up textured wet hair
Tip: To get a ‘not too styled’ look, make sure you don’t pull the sides back too tightly.
This hairstyle is perfect if you want an overall edgier look. It’s a very flexible and you can wear it for day or night, plus it works on both shorter and longer hair. It’s also very easy to do: all you need are the right products and the confidence to boldly create lots of texture.
