Kate Middleton may have set the trend when she donned a regal version of the look during her trip to Los Angeles with Prince William in 2011. The brunette beauty enjoyed the half-up look with loose curls while visiting an inner city arts youth program and meeting with celebrities like Reese Witherspoon. She's since worn the style several times adding her elegant and intricate touch.

Want to get the look? Celebrity stylist Daniel Galvin Jr. tells us the two easy steps of achieving "the hun": "The best thing about this look is that it works no matter what the length of your hair may be," Daniel tells HELLO!. "You can really dress it up with makeup, heels and a bouncy blow dry or rock it up for a festival adding a cool strike of color or on the beach with sea salted wavy hair."

Step 1
Section half your hair and put it high on top of your head using an elastic band

Step 2
Twist the hair in the band and loop round securing with a grip. Finish the look to whatever situation or place you are in.

To add more texture and translucency to the hair when rocking this look, use Daniel Galvin Jr.’s OrganicHead detox mask after shampooing to remove product build up, available at Target.com.
