I’ve always loved wearing updos. But now that I’m a beauty editor and a new mom, I hardly have the time (or frankly, the hands) to spend time styling my hair for more than a minute or two. But Khloé Kardashian’s half-up hairstyle, which celebrity hairstylist and ghd brand ambassador Justine Marjan, posted a photo of Koko wearing a half-up style laced with braids. Marjan, who created the look ten minutes, did so for an upcoming episode of—what else—Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
To know that something this beautiful can be so simple is a legitimate game-changer—no longer are the days I let my 6-month-old dictate the state of my hair. “Khloé was filming a short segment for the show so she wanted to do something fun and different,” Marjan tells Allure. “Keeping it half up makes it more casual, whereas pulling all of the hair into the pony can make it more dressy. We decided we wanted to keep the length short and style it half up with braids on the side.”
If you’re creating the look at home, Marjan suggests using the arch and edges of your brows as a guideline for where the sections should start. The bottom line? You don’t need fancy products for glam updos. Just apply a little skill and patience and you’re good to go.
