    Create Your Half-Up Ponytail

    Begin by brushing your hair to remove any tangles. Gather the top section of your hair – from your temples to the crown – and pull it back into a half-up ponytail. Secure it with a hair tie, ensuring it's tight enough to hold but not so tight that it causes discomfort. This will form the base of your half-up half-down style.

    Conceal the Hair Tie

    For a polished look, take a 1-inch section of hair from the base of your half ponytail. Wrap it around the hair tie to conceal it, creating a more refined appearance. Use a bobby pin to secure the end of the wrapped hair underneath the ponytail. This simple trick adds an elegant touch to your hairstyle.

    Apply One Step Smooth

    To achieve a smooth and sleek look, apply a dime-sized amount of  TRESemmé One-Step Smooth Cream. This product is designed to smooth and 24-hour frizz control with the added benefits of a glossy shine and heat protection.

    Perfect Your Straight Style

    Next, it's time to straighten your hair to perfection. Working in sections, use a flat iron to straighten your hair from root to tip. For a bit of flair, curve the iron inwards or outwards at the ends for a subtle flip effect. This technique adds movement and dimension to your straight style.

    Set Your Style with Hairspray

    To ensure your half-up half-down hairstyle stays in place all day, finish with a spritz of TRESemmé Extra Hold Hairspray. This will lock in your look, providing long-lasting hold without stiffness or stickiness.
