For Those With Layers

If you have shorter layers in your hair or are growing out bangs, you can actually create a really pretty half-up/half-down look with loose strands. First, separate out your shorter strands in the front of your hair and put them aside by gathering them with a clip. Then fix the rest of your hair as you would normally create a half-up/half-down style. When you are finished, take the shorter pieces of your hair that you put aside and break into small sections, spraying them generously while you pull them back and stick them in your hair with bobby pins. It will create a loose look that is red-carpet ready.
