lately I've been wearing my hair in an half bun but I want to try some more half updos.
Do any of you have any suggestions?

    It would help if we knew more about your hair, esp. length & curl pattern.  Also lots of ideas on the Naturally Curly website.

    @Tutilinav I have shorter hair but I can manage many half updos. Here is a photo of one that is created by a simple twist of the sides. You can join them with a hair friendly tie or use hair pins. I use a small barrette.

    Try pulling pieces back in twists - you can play with how far down you go! I like to do a half French braid and clip it in, leaving the end unbraided. You can even do a mix of braids and twists as you pull it back. 

    I always do some variety of twists because it helps me keep volume in the style. 

    I like experimenting with pulling it half back only on one side! Be careful of the curls when you're pulling it back though because sometimes you can completely ruin the pattern! Have fun and experiment - work with the curl pattern as to not split them! Bobby pins here are your friend!
