In my post “What I like about (long) hair” I already told you that I like to wear my hair up in a bun. A bun is a protective hairstyle and it keeps my hair out of my way – perfect for work or when I am relaxing at home.
My partner likes my hair best when I wear it down. As I gain length, this is getting more and more difficult for me. During the day it often gets in my way and after hours of wearing it down it takes a long time to detangle it. So, I do wear my hair down occasionally, but it is not something I like doing frequently.
We found half-ups to be a good compromise. It is a way of wearing it down while still having parts of the hair up in a bun or even in a braid. Half-Ups became one of my favorite hair styles.
