Medium Hairdos in a Hurry
By Kate on 1 October 2009
We've all had those days where time just got the better of us and being able to get our hair into a fabulous (yet time consuming) hairdo got pushed to the bottom of the to-do list.
For those days, or the days when you want to pull yourself out of your styling rut, we've found some medium hairdos that will work with your natural hair texture and length to give you a look that takes a minimum amount of time but will still have maximum impact.
Medium Straight Half Up Hairdo
Naturally straight hair can sometimes look a little boring when left to just hang out. For a hairdo with some oomph, take your cue from Farah Fath’s medium straight half updo and tease your top and side layers and then smooth them backwards and pin them to create a half up, half down hairdo. A quick spritz of hairspray will keep your quiff held high and your loose straight locks in place.
Medium Wavy Hairdo
When your mid-length hair is naturally this wavy, there’s nothing to do except show it off! Jessica Biel’s medium wavy hairstyle gives a great example of how it's done. Follow her lead by scrunching your natural waves with some gel into a beautiful style that frames and softens your face.
Medium Curly Hairdo
Jordin Spark’s medium curly hair looks amazing in its natural form. If your natural texture and current length is the same, re-create this look by adding some wax to your curls for definition and some hairspray to your entire hairdo for hold.
For those with naturally dead straight locks, it can’t get any simpler than adding a middle part and running a light coat of smoothing shine through your hair à la Gwyneth Paltrow’s medium straight hairdo.
Some mousse, an off center part and a quick scrunch of your natural waves through the ends and mid-lengths is a very quick and easy way to give your hair some style, just like Kate Walsh’s medium wavy hairdo.
