60s Brigitte Bardot Half Up Hairdo

Share

 Like Snooki, I believe that when it comes to hair, height is desirable. Unlike Snooki, however, I prefer my hairdos to have some movement and versatility in situations that aren’t bars on the Jersey Shore. Of course Snooki now is a toned down mom who was on Hollywood Medium – my new favorite show, but I digress.

That’s right, no bump-its here, people! What I have instead is a superbly easy hairstyle that will work for almost any hair length or texture. It’s got a 60s retro vibe (as seen in the Fashion Risk: Mid-Length Skirt styling), and channels chanteuse and style icon Brigitte Bardot in a way that is both modern and authentic. If you’ve got hair, an elastic, a bobby pin, and 5 minutes — then you’ve got a new favorite hairdo. Watch and learn!

Do It!:

  1. Creating a part from the tops of your ears straight up, pull the front section of your hair into a pony on the top of your head. Make sure not to position it too far forward or too far back, but right at the tippity-top of your cranium. Smooth the sides with your fingers and tie with your elastic!
  2. Take a small piece of hair from the underneath of your ponytail and wrap it around the elastic, concealing it. Secure this little piece of hair with a bobby pin in the back of the ponytail.
  3. I like to give this look a feminine, slightly undone effect by pulling down and loosening wispy, face-framing hairs. But this step is completely optional, depending on your hair!
  4. More optional touches include adding loose waves with a curling iron and/ or teasing the ponytail with a brush or teasing comb. If you want to imbue it with an effortless beachy vibe, do my Wavy Hair Tutorial first, then whip it up into this half pony!
  5. Set the whole look with hairspray and voila! Knock em dead.
