Mid-Length Hairstyles: All The Inspiration You Need
Tousled waves? They couldn’t be easier with the right waving wand. In minutes you can walk out of the door with beachy locks just like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Glam Hollywood curls are a great option too. With the right amount of tight curl of you can fake a shoulder-skimming bob, but wear them loose and you’ll be swishing at the centre of the spotlight.
Then of course, there are the endless updo options. Ponytails look bouncier and edgier with mid-length hair, especially if you add plenty of texture with a spritz of dry shampoo or texturising spray. Also, you won’t be carrying the weight of longer, heavier hair – so no mid-day headache for you!
Topknots look great with mid-length styles, and you could experiment with half-up, half-down looks and hun or space buns.
Then come braids and plaits – of all kinds! You’ve got enough length for a side-swept fishtail, and just enough to create twisted, braided updos. If you’re looking for something fresh, have a go at Perrie Edwards’ scalp braid, while adding a whole load of volume to the rest of your tresses.
Mid-length hair really is the best – you can do everything!
