Emily is the blogger behind Cupcakes and Cashmere, a popular lifestyle blog, and we’ve always envied her perfect dirty blonde locks. She’s really impressed us with her half-up, half-down style, which perfectly combines her beachy waves with an office-appropriate ‘do. Every girl should know how to create a lovely half-up, half-down hairstyle, so follow the style notes to copy Emily’s look.

Step: Towel dry hair to damp and apply styling whip from roots to ends.

Step: Blowdry hair with your hands, using your fingers to create a soft, beachy texture.

Step: Grab a large section of hair from each side of the head and pull back behind the head. Make sure to leave a few strands in front to frame the face. Anchor the two side sections behind the head with bobby pins.

Step: Use a small barrel curling iron to create beachy waves wherever you want a little more movement. Blast with holding spray.
