I know I have been pushing the half-back style very recently, but I wanted you to see how it can go badly wrong.

a) cheap and nasty
b) too big for the style she's created
I encourage you to take the time to scroll through the entire slide show, as they give you a good view of her style from several angles.
From the front, the basic shape she's created works fine for her face shape.
However, her profile looks terrible. The amount of hair she's pulled up creates a "clump" at the back of her head that just sits there.

Using a barrette instead of a hair claw helps spread the hair more smoothly across the back of your head, creating a much more attractive profile.
Unless you have mountains of hair, for your half-back avoid using large clasps with a high arch. This will stand proud of your head and might show the clasp, which doesn't look nice.
If you want to learn more about the ins and outs of this style, I made a detailed video tutorial about the half-back (or half-up) hair style earlier this month.
And now that I'm inspired by Hillary, I shall work up a video for you about using hair claws in this style. It's possible, but, as you can see, you need to know the facts.
