So, in this article I’m going to provide you with some of the best methods of styling your medium-length hair inorder to achieve a great look at all times.

METHOD-1: How to style medium-length hair downwards.

  1. Style loose-waves: try styling your medium-length hair into natural waves on certain mornings where you don’t have a lot time. natural-waves can be achieved by twisting big sections of hair around a large curling iron and then let hair slide out of the curling-iron after a few minutes. This will help to add waves to your hair instead of ringlets/curls. Afterwards, spray some hairspray over your hair to keep the waves in place and to add some extra shine to hair. Lastly, consider straightening the ends your wavy-hair inorder to achieve an amazing look.
  2. Tryout a side-swept hairstyle on your medium-length hair: a side-swept hairstyle will also look great on medium-length hair and below are some of the steps you can follow when styling a side-swept hairstyle:
  • Start by blowing your hair dry with a large barrel-brush and then divide hair into 4-sections inorder to prepare it for styling.
  • Curl each section in alternations by curling one-section clockwise and curling the other section counter-clockwise. Additionally, once a section has been curled, pin it up with bobby-pins inorder to keep it out of the way as you curl other sections.
  • Remove all the bobby-pins from hair once all of it has been curls and then comb through it using your fingers.
  • Use a paddle-brush to comb the hair at the crown-section of the head towards the left-side of your face. However, avoid brushing the waved-hair but simply pass your fingers through inorder to move hair towards the left-side.
  • Finish by spraying your hair with a good hairspray inorder to add some extra hold and shine before going-out.


  1. Add a braided-bang to your medium-length hairstyle

    : if you have medium-length hairstyle with side-swept bangs that need trimming and you don’t have time to trim them or going to the salon, then consider braiding these bangs across the crown-section of your head and after secure the braided-bang with bobby-pins. In fact, you may pin the braid just over the ears and then let the rest of your hair drop down or you can even put hair up in form of a ponytail.


METHOD-2: How to style medium-length hair upwards:

  1. Tryout a half-up and half-down top-knot: on days where don’t have a lot time to style hair in the morning, consider putting hair half-up and half-down. So below are some of the steps on how to style a half-up and half-down top-knot;
  • Start by grabbing a big chunk of hair near the crown-section and then section it off and away from the rest of your hair.

  • Scrunch the sectioned-hair into a bun and then use an elastic-band to secure hair into a tiny top-knot on top of your head.
  • Finish by tugging at the roots of your hair inorder to create some additional volume.


  1. Go for a simple up-do: this will involve styling the top-half of you’re upwards and then tie it with an elastic-band just over the head. Additionally even the bottom-half of your hair can be secured a little lower than the top-half of hair when creating an amazing up-do hairstyle. Afterwards, you may need to select one of the ponytails and then pull-out a small-section of hair, roll-up the hair in form of a small-loop and pin that loop over the head using bobby-pins. In fact, you will have to roll the hair in the entire circumference of the first ponytail just before repeating the same process on the second-ponytail.

Additionally, try to curl-up you hair just before tying it up inorder to add extra-volume to your ponytails.

Afterwards, you will have to take the top-section of hair and French-braid it down into the center of the crown and keep braiding until the braid has formed a complete-circle. Secure the braided-hair with an elastic-band and then tuck the hair-ends underneath the braid. On top of that, you need to use bobby-pins to secure the braid and afterwards you will need to take the other section of hair and French-braid it around the entire circumference of your head.

  2. Braid your medium-length hair into a Mohawk: a Mohawk actually looks great on medium-length hair and below are some of the steps that you can follow when creating this braided-hairstyle:
  • Get a tail-comb and use it to create 2-sections within hair whereby one-section is over the eye-brows and the other on the sides and back. In fact, you have to separate these 2-sections and then secure them over your head with a clip.
  • Grab the center-section of hair and then braid it straight back-away from the face. Start braiding hair at about ½" backwards from the hairline inorder for the braid to achieve a little poof at the front.
  • Start tightly braiding the center-section all the way down to the curve of your head and then secure the braid with an elastic-band.
