Here are instructions for my favorite half updo.
Pull back half of your hair for a half updo.
Start twisting the top part of your hair.
Once twisted, pull the twisted part up towards the front of your head and lay it on top of itself.
Using a Ficcare Maximus style clip (I usually use a cheap imitation I got at Target that actually works better for me), put the bottom of the clip under the whole flipped up section of hair, making sure you grab the hair near the scalp as well. You might have to try this a few times to get it right, but then itís easy.
Flip the hair over the clip and voila!
