See How a $12 Barrette Makes This Half-Up Hairstyle Look Like a Million Bucks

Half-up styles are already one of our favorite trends for 2015, and with red carpet season kicking off, we’re bound to find plenty of new fodder for our inspiration boards. One look we loved? The half-up ‘do Anna Faris wore to co-host the People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday night, which had a slight ’60s vibe thanks to her lash-skimming fringe and a bit of volume at the crown. Hair stylist Jenny Cho, who coiffed Faris for the event, used a curling iron, teasing comb and Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Volumizing Plump Hold Hairspray to add oomph. 
But a frontal photo doesn’t do the look justice; you have to see it from 360 degrees. Luckily, Cho posted this back-view shot of the style on her Instagram account.

Surprise — there’s a cool barrette situation happening in the back, and it totally makes the look. Cho later revealed the source of the barrette: none other than Urban Outfitters, where you can score the minimalist metal accessory for $12 ($20 for two!). Done and done.
