From classy to casual: the golden mean of hair lengths offers a multitude of styling options. Here are 6 (uncomplicated!) Hairstyle ideas for medium-length hair that you should definitely try this summer.
Whether a specifically set parting, small and larger accessories, or sophisticated braids - medium-length hair offers a variety of styling options and is anything but a transition length on the way to long hair.
Sure, the high braid is a long runner, but the most famous hairstyle can also be reinterpreted. At least since the Versace Show for autumn 2021, hair towels have been a big trend. But if the foulard is too daring for you, you can also connect the silk scarf with a braid. A woven scarf enhances even the most uncomplicated hairstyle and can make a real statement through bright colors - matching the respective outfit.
We all know it and we all love it: the low bun. It is probably the fastest and easiest styling option for all hairstyles from shoulder length. A variant of the low bun stands out with its elegance - compared to the otherwise rather unexcited “messy” bun - the low bun with a sleek look.
To achieve a sleek look, you need a small (or larger, depending on the hair type) hair gel or mousse to carefully straighten the hair. Then the hairstyle can be attached with a simple hair tie, a large clip, or a striking scrunchie. This version of the low bun can be worn with a middle parting - to emphasize the symmetry of the face - as well as with a deep side parting. Depending on the parting, the hairstyle has a completely new effect.
A real eye-catcher for medium-length hair: small clips that shape the hair. With the small bobby pins, you can imitate a kind of water wave in the style of the 20s, as well as place smaller strands in the desired shape. You can also play with the colors of the small pins by wearing a contrasting shade to your natural hair color - depending on your taste - or by choosing some matching clips for a simpler look.
Whether Grace Kelly, Liz Taylor, or Brigitte Bardot: They all wore the cloth accessory on trips with convertibles and on boat trips. Originally intended to protect the hairstyle from environmental influences such as rain and wind, the foulard is also intended as an accessory trend this year.
At the Max Mara and Versace shows for the coming autumn/winter, we saw the headgear already elegantly staged. And the bandana-shaped scarf is also making the rounds on TikTok. The best thing about it: This headgear works with any hair length and under it, any outgrown hairlines or any bad hair days moments disappear.
A true classic hairstyle: the French braid. Even if it slipped into one of the back drawers of our memory some time ago, its elegance and simplicity should not be underestimated. With small details, such as carefully placed hair clips on both sides of the braid, the strands of hair braided close to the back of the head become the highlight of every look.
It should be borne in mind, however, that the braid requires a certain length of hair, and therefore braiding with shorter hair (for example a long bob) will require some clips for more hold. As an alternative, only the upper half of the hair can be braided and the lower - usually shorter - layer remains open for a casual look. Here, too, playful accessories add that certain something.
There are many ways to wear a high bun. Whichever way you choose to wear it, the moment you add some kind of accessory, its appeal changes.
A pair of hair clips, a headband, or a colored scrunchie are obvious options. A hair accessory that may have been forgotten, but which looks flawless in combination with a high bun is the hairnet. The idea of a hairnet may be unusual for many, but the accessory can be worn both conspicuously, such as with golden chains, or simply with a bun net made of fabric.
