How to make a half-up half-down quick weave?

Before we dive into the quick weave process, make sure the bundles you buy are similar to your natural hair in texture and shade. This will enable you to create a seamless and undetectable illusion.

Here are some items you need to prepare in advance:

Some hair clips or hair ties;

Bobby pins;

A rattail comb and a wide-tooth comb;

Human hair bundles (2-3 bundles);

Got2b glue;

A pair of sharp scissors;

Hair bonding glue;

Step 1: Prepare your natural hair

After detangling your hair with a wide-tooth comb, thoroughly shampoo and condition your hair. Let your hair air dry or blow it dry with the lowest heat setting after socking out with a soft towel. Keeping your hair and scalp fresh before gluing in hair can not only prolong the duration but also protect your natural hair.

Step 2: Section your natural hair

Determine the section for your half-up ponytail first. Use a rattail comb to section your hair horizontally from ear to ear to make a small area for your ponytail. Clip the half-up ponytail on the crown so that it won't bother you. Section the bottom section of hair into two vertical sections. Braid each section of hair into a small braid. Use some bobby pins to clip the braids and make them as flat as possible.

Step 3: Put on a wig cap

Spray some Got2b glue on the braids. Put on a wig cap to cover the bottom braid area. The wig cap is a barrier to holding and protecting your natural hair. Spray some Got2b glue on the wig cap to create an additional protective barrier. 

Step 3: Glue in hair

Start from the bottom of the wig cap. Use a pair of sharp scissors to cut a piece of the bundle into the same width as the nape of your neck. Apply some hair bonding glue to the weft and press it down along the bottom of the wig cap. Press for about 20-30 seconds so that it can firmly stick to the wig cap, or you can blow dry the glue to speed up the gluing process. You will need to cut the bundles to fit your head and glue down the weft horizontally until you finish gluing the entire wig cap.

Step 4: Hide the weaves

Updo your ponytail on the crown. Use a rattail comb to section out a small portion of natural hair near the edges of the wig cap. You can also go for a wrap ponytail to create a voluminous half-up ponytail. Use your fingers to blend your natural hair with the hair extension to cover the weaves. This is the secret to creating an undetectable hair look. 

Step 5: Style your hair

Put half of your hair into a ponytail on the crown to achieve a half up half down hairstyle. Lay down your baby hair and apply a small amount of edge control on the roots to achieve a sleek look. You can also apply a small amount of natural oil to the tips to add a polished shine.

5 Easy & gorgeous half-up half-down hairstyles

Half-up, half-down is a versatile hairstyle that can incorporate braids, buns, or top knot details. This hairstyle can perfectly handle all occasions and events, whether it's for work, vacation, dating, wedding, etc.


It's a wonderful and easy way to style a half-up half-down ponytail. You just need to pull your hair up to a half ponytail and tie it up. Use your fingers to loosen a few hair strands of the ponytail to add a lazy and sexy touch. This will make it look a bit messy. And you can also leave a few strands to fall around the face to soften your facial features.

This is a chic and stylish hairstyle. If you haven't tried this style before, give it a try. It's a time-saving and charming style you'll love. To prolong its duration and minimize damage to your natural hair, make sure your hair and scalp are in a fresh and clean condition. You just need to divide your hair into several sections and braid the hair. You can also add some colored extensions to highlight your hair look.

This is a simple and classic style that you can wear regularly or for some special events. You just need to create a half-up half-down ponytail, and then weep the ponytail into a bun and fix it with some bobby pins. You can also add some braid details or some decorations to style the bun. The charm is that it can make an ingenious switch between sweet and cool. The mid-length bun between your ears tends to look romantic and sweet. When you tie a top knot on the crown, it tends to be a cool style.

There are various types of twists you can slay, such as two-strand twists, three-strand twists, flat twists, etc. Twists are similar to braids, the difference is that twists bring fewer tensions to the scalp and are a more protective style. Also ensure the scalp and natural hair are in a fresh and clean condition, part your hair into several even sections, and apply some edge control to make twists. And then pull the twists into a half ponytail or a bun as your desire. This style looks so fabulous on black women!

This hairstyle looks gorgeous whether you're heading to a Saturday night party or a music festival.
