Hairstyles for Medium Length Hair
If you’ve succumb to the hair trend of medium hairstyles or simply working the in-between-growing out your hair phase, then it's time to embrace your shoulder-grazing cut with these hairstyles for medium length hair.
We’ve been basking in the medium length haircut for quite some time now, and if you haven’t already headed for the chop, then these lustworthy hairstyles are going to sway you towards booking that hair appointment this weekend…
The classic middle parting is an elegant hairstyle for medium length hair. Not only is it a catwalk-ready hairstyle, a middle parting can also give your medium hairstyle equal balance of bounciness and volume- perfect for those no-fuss, care-free days. Another classic hairstyle for medium length hair ladies to aspire to, is a low slung bun. Opposed to the top knot, this ballerina-esque style is ideal for medium length hair and girls who have a penchant for minimalist and sleek hairstyles, too.
A full fringe can look just as high-fashion on medium length hair and is great for adding a new dimension to your ‘bland’ locks, without taking away the foundations of the haircut. It also creates the illusion of thicker, fuller hair and gives a plump of volume to the front parts of your tresses.
One of the reasons why we are smitten with the in-between haircut is that it provides the ideal base for our bed head hair. Just like Alexa Chung’s signature midi-bob and choppy bangs, we can work the mussed up, texturised bed hair look ourselves with our medium length hair, too. Channel the bed head hairstyle for medium length hair by asking your hair stylist to chop in a few layers and then work a pea-size amount of the Tigi Bed Head Candy Fixations Mega Whip into the ends of your layered, rough-and-ready ‘do.
Leading on from one androgynous hairstyle for medium length haired girls to another, the next hairstyle on our list is the slick back hair look. Again, another big hair trend for ss14, the slick back hair trend has long been a style staple on the catwalks and we think that there’s no better haircut it will suit other than the medium hairstyle! Slicked back on the sides and top, this hairstyle isn’t for the faint hearted but it does promise to give you the wow factor. To bag the look yourselves, apply a decent amount of the Tigi Catwalk Session Series Wet Look Gel to your roots and comb towards the back of your head. Leave the ends of your hair gel-free to nail one this season’s hottest looks.
Medium length hair is a great length for creating texture, and one hairstyle that mirrors this statement perfectly are mermaid waves. Tousling your locks and creating mermaid waves is an instant way of adding volume and texture to your hair, especially if your medium hairstyle has been bluntly cut. You can learn how to get these enchanting waves with our mermaid waves hair tutorial here.
Lastly, we throw ombre ends into the medium length hair mix. We can’t get enough of this hair shade and it seems that we’re not alone as celebrities like Ciara are still sporting the ombre hair trend, two years on from its emergence. We think that ombre ends sit nicely on medium length hair and yet again, add texture and depth to the classic haircut. So, if you’re thinking of sprucing up your medium length locks with a bit of colour, then we suggest opting for ombre ends, too.
As we have shown you above, medium length hair is anything but boring and doesn’t have to be classed as that ‘growing out phase’. How will you be styling your shoulder length locks this season?
