To start off the list we have half up-do hairstyles. There are 6 quick techniques to style your short hair with a half up-do.
Make A Loosely Twisted Natural Look
Take the hair from the top of your ears to build 2 portions. As for the twists, spin both parts of the hair lightly and tuck them in position. You could use a barrette to fasten the coils at the back of your head. Moving on to your braids, divide each of the 2 portions into three separate parts, and then braid it. Similarly, you can either use a pin or a barrette to secure the braids nicely at the back of your head. After that, let loose the ends of the twists or braids in the back along with the rest of your hair. To get a soft and elegant look, you can fasten the twists a little lower and closer to the nape. As a bonus, you can bring out a few face framing stray strands.
A Hairstyle Mostly Involving Twists And Turns
Begin the quick routine by twisting your hair into a messy half. Take the top half of your hair and grip it firmly at your crown with one hand. Curl the hair loosely into a bun and tie an elastic rubber band around the bun to hold it in position. Next, take bobby pins to form and arrange the topknot in the front and back. Complete the hairstyle with a mist of setting spray. To build extra volume and texture, use a texturizing spray near the scalp prior to partitioning the hair.
If you prefer not to use any artificial hair products, an alternative is to tease the hair gently at the sides to create more volume and a messier look.
Tousled Half-Up Simple Plait
For this, you need to part your hair on one side by grabbing the hair from the top of your ears to your temples. Loosely braid the portion of hair to the tips and fasten it at the back of your head with bobby pins or a barrette. Make sure to tuck the braid tips so they're out of sight. Later, repeat the same steps for the other portion. To make the hairdo appear softer and elegant, you can drape the braids loosely and attach them right above the nape of your neck. As a bonus, you can bring out a few face framing stray strands.
Loosely Twisted Or Braided Halo For A Natural Look

Your twists must be rotated with each section of hair loosely and pin them in place or use a barrette, this will secure the twists at the back of your head. As for braids, divide each of the 2 portions into three pieces, make a neat braid. Then, take the pin or a barrette to attach the braids in position or fasten them at the back of your head. After that, let the tips of the braids hang down loosely in the back with the rest of your hair. You can either lower the twists close to the nape for a soft hairdo or tease the crown and sides for added volume, this will make things a bit different.
Easy going ponytail, by pulling your hair into a simple half ponytail. For that, you need to brush your hair out to untangle straight hair or finger-comb curly hair to get rid of any knots. Separate the top half of your hair by starting right above your ears and pulling all of the hair up to the crown of your head. Be sure to even out both the sides. As for the tip of your ponytail, you can thoroughly comb for a neat finishing. In order to fasten the half ponytail, use a clear rubber band.

Begin the step by placing your thumbs right above your ears and pull them to the back of your head until they meet to gather the top half of your hair. Grab the hair firmly with one hand and use your free hand to brush down the front and top so that it appears sleek and even out.

Or you could use bobby pins to shape and tidy the bun and to hide the elastic, if needed.
