Hilary Duff has this week joined a very glamorous list of style icons who are all over a hot new, half-up hair trend.

The gorgeous actress Instagrammed this selfie on Wednesday (29 October) while filming her new TV sitcom Younger and we couldn't help but fall in love with her half-up topknot...

Hilary plays Kelsey, an ambitious 20-something in the new show which is written, directed and executive produced by Sex and the City creator Darren Star.

The series also boasts SATC's Patricia Field as costume consultant, which means we're v excited about all the stylish outfits we can ooh and aah over when it airs in January 2015.

And in the meantime, we get to see plenty of behind-the-scenes shots anyway. Yay!

What caught our attention most about Hilary's latest photos, however, was her fabulous hair.

Why? Because we've seen a lot of celebrities doing the half-up look of late. And we like it...

While Hilary went for a piled high topknot, the likes of 'Bang Bang' singer Ariana Grande and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini have both been rocking half-up ponytails in recent months.

Spot the difference!

Another take on the look is to go for a half-up French braid, like TOWIE star Lauren Pope (below) who rocked this lust-after do back in April.

Buns, ponytails, plaits, twists, the choices are endless. But however you choose to do the trend make sure you keep the top section tightly pulled back, while the rest of your hair is left soft, wavy and almost undone-looking.

To nail that beachy look, apply a little mousse when your hair is dry, then scrunch it while rough-drying with your hairdryer.

If you over-style the loose section of your hair, you'll ruin the look.

Got it?
