Getting your hair through the “In Between” stage in style!

Posted on

Unless you’ve been blessed with long, flowing hair your entire life and never had the urge to cut it short, chances are you’ve experienced the “In Between” stage. You loved your short hair – it was so easy to manage, so light and bouncy – but now you’re desperately craving it long. It’s easy to be discouraged and have your bob cut back in when your hair reaches the “stuck in the middle” stage, but stay strong – we’re here for you! We’ve got five easy hairstyles for medium length hair that will make you fall in love with your “In Between” hair…

#1 Curls with a twist

#1 Curls with a twist

This is one of those styles that everyone will suit, and is especially perfect for the summer. Curl your hair loosely, either with a curling wand or a straightening iron, changing direction every now and then to create a more dimensional look. Next, take two sections from the front and twist them back, securing them with a clear elastic at the back. Festival chic in no time!

#2 Stylish pony

This style looks a little complicated but we promise it’s not, and it puts a unique spin on the classic pony tail. Just take a small section of your hair and braid it down to the crown of your head until it rejoins the rest of your hair. Tie your hair in a low pony tail, leaving another small section out to wrap around the elastic.

#3 Straight and sleek

We all know hair looks longer when it’s straight! Tuck a few strands behind your ear to add a sophisticated edge to this simple style. To make sure your locks stays sleek all day, run a pump of oil through your hair.

#4 Messy Half Bun

Okay, this one couldn’t be any easier, and is great for girls who would rather that extra few winks of sleep! Just section the hair in two, and tie the top half up in a messy bun. You can wave the bottom half, or just leave it as it is for a more undone look.

#5 Bridesmaid

Ideal for any formal event, this style is super elegant, and can definitely be done with medium length hair. Just create two thick, loose French braids and pin them in place at the crown of your head. Twist the rest of your hair up and secure it.
