This innovative hairstyle combines both the half bun and half ponytail to over a hybrid do' that is as sleek as it is elegant. The top portion of the hair is slicked back into a high bun with a long tail adding volume and length.
The half bun half ponytail hairstyle was allegedly created by a tennis player that frantically threw her hair up during a game says fashion blog Refinery29. The style is a slight variation to a ponytail by pulling only a couple inches through the elastic and letting the rest of the hair dangle. Another way to create this hairstyle is to first create a mid-high ponytail and then taking a second elastic to turn the top portion into a bun. The end effect adds volume, height and texture to an otherwise simple style.
