Hair worn half-up and half-down serves as the perfect balance between elegant updos and free-flowing, unstructured styles. Wearing hair half-up allows you to showcase your face while maintaining a sense of femininity that can only be achieved with long, loose locks. This choice also represents one of the most versatile wedding day styles, as it works on all types of hair lengths. If you have your heart set on a gorgeous tiara or headband, the half-up half-down style can help to highlight these accessories, without letting them take over. Brides can choose to have straight or curly hair, and veils can be worn either on top of the head or in the back depending on how the front half of the hair is pinned up. Best of all, keeping the front of the hair pulled back eliminates the need to completely restyle hair once your veil comes off for the reception.
