A properly set updo ensures the hair is neat and hassle-free all day long. Having all down long hair will post a bit of a problem, the hair might look unkempt after some time of moving about. To solve the problem, you can go for a half up half down hair style. You have part of your hair properly tied up and keep half of it flowing down to cover some bare skin :), for instance a strapless, low cut neckline dress.
