In case you haven’t noticed, half-up topknots have been practically everywhere the last few months, on the heads of models and all over Instagram. And there are plenty of reasons to embrace this look, it’s perfect for days your hair is too messy or even too dirty too wear down, but you don’t really want to hide all of it. And depending on your style, you can either wear it casual or dressed up. Personally I love it when the look has a little more attitude, which is why I love adding the French braid detail to it. And you don’t even need much time to execute it. Click through to the notes to learn how to emulate this style. –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →

Hair stencils are nothing new; you can see my previous posts about them here and here. But usually the technique is applied to bold geometric patterns. These soft flowered designs are taking hair stencils into pretty boho territory, making them a perfect choice for summer festivals and casual get-togethers.
