Half Up With Flat Twists
This look is super trendy -- and actually not all that hard to pull off. Beauty vlogger Luhhsetty recommends starting with damp hair, before sectioning the front half of your hair into four parts (those will be the flat twists). Tie the twists together and wear the rest of your hair down. Voila!
