When men are asked what hairstyle they find sexiest on women, of course the answers are varied. Still, many of them will tell you that the half-up, half-down hair look is the style they find most alluring. The easy to achieve look is definitely timeless and can be tweaked to suit any aesthetic, wavy and messy or sleek and straight...whatever your preference, there's a way to make it work for you.

CLASSIC LOOK, CONTEMPORARY TWIST

The half-up, half-down hairstyle is a classic look that has changed throughout the years to include: ponytails, clips, pinned back bangs, and top knots. Whatever your aesthetic, you can tweak the style to your face shape, leaving more or less hair out depending on your personal preference. For a sleek look, keep it tightly pulled back, using some hairspray and bobby pins to hold stray hair in place. For a more tousled finish, let your hair air dry naturally and curl the pieces around your face for a more bohemian 'do.

WHY THE APPEAL?

Though we can only hypothesize, it's likely that the appeal of this hairstyle lies in the fact that it is girly and pretty while still looking voluminous and effortless. Since half the hair is pinned back, it shows off your eyes and neck, both highly feminine parts of the body. The lose strands give movement to the hair...plus, when they fall forwards over your eyes requiring your date to move them aside, it can't get any more alluring.
