When it comes to half up half down hairstyles there are hundreds of ones that you can do on your hair. The reason why I personally love cute half up hairstyles is because they are great for keeping the hair out of your face. Nobody wants their hair swinging in their face during the day, especially at school.

This particular cute half up half down hairstyle for school is one that you can do two different ways. You can just do the top part and let the tail remain loose or you can braid it like I did here on Victoria. I love being able to pick and choose when it comes to hairstyles.

School Hair Tutorial

Here is the hair tutorial on how to do this simple hairstyle. My advice for this one is to use a hair styling cream. I will share the exact one that we use, I’m in love with it. The reason it makes it easier to use the styling cream is because it will help smooth the hair.

As you can tell, it’s a simple hairstyle, but such a pretty one, too. I love this one because it really is a good amount of hair in front that you can pull up and away from the face. It’s a great hairstyle if you have someone who loves to wear their hair down.
