1. The sleek and sharp middle part bob

The middle part has taken the spotlight since it made a super chic comeback last year. This style is classic but bold, and best of all it is a face-framing style that can dramatically transform your look. If you straighten your bob into a sleek sharp style, it can help draw attention to your eyes and nose, which will enhance your face and make your make up appear more glamorous and effective.

The middle part bob is just past the shoulders, perfectly asymmetrical – giving the illusion of long hair, but without the required maintenance. It’s also flattering on almost everyone; no matter what face shape you have, what colour your hair is, or even what texture your hair is. Find out more about blending hair extensions with your bob.

2. The Instagram flipped-out pony

This is probably one of the most Instagrammable hairstyles right now. Taking inspiration from the 90's, the flip pony has been taking over by storm. A partly easy hairstyle for anyone with medium length hair, this style is ultra-chic and easy to achieve.

This chic flipped-out ponytail is also dubbed the ‘facelift ponytail’ – does what it says on the tin. This style takes your hair away from your face and makes the cheekbones stand out. The flipped-out pony is the perfect alternative to the killer ponytail, and it makes just much of a bold statement. If you have shorter hair at the back that’s not long enough to bring it into a high ponytail, wear half of it up for a super-stylish half-up half- down do.

3. Textured waves

If you aren’t looking to cut your hair anytime soon but are stuck in the in between stages, you should try adding a little wave and texture to your hair. This will make your hair appear slightly shorter and more layered, without you actually having to cut it.

To get these waves, apply mousse to damp hair before blow drying and curling random strands. While this look works well with every hair texture, you can always add some extensions to puff it up.

You can also try the latest hair trend this hair; the modern shag hairstyle. This style is all about texture and easy hair. This will certainly be out go-to on lazy days.

4. The blinged out top bun

Tie the middle of your hair into a small sleek bun, you can then straighten the bottom half to a sharp look. Complete your look by adding some accessories to the front or middle of your hair.

If you want a more casual daytime look but still look stunning, then go for a braided top bun. To achieve this style, simply Dutch-braid your hair in the middle from the front until the crown. Secure with a clear hair tie and if you’d like more thickness, you can pinch the sides gently for volume. Now it’s time to tie the ends of the braids into a top bun.

5. The kick ass fringe


Cut your hair again? Of course, not... (if you don’t want to). Adding a clip in fringe can really transform your medium length hairstyle into a completely different look without the commitment. Cut your clip in fringe into your desired style, but if you’d like to jump on this season’s hottest trends, then got for the 70s curtain fringe/ bangs that have made a strong comeback this year. This hairstyle is especially popular if you have a blunt and sharp bob.

If you have layers in in your medium length hair, then a side swept fringe is a good choice. It can add movement and a lively vibe to any haircut. If you have thin or fine hair, we recommend you start the fringe further back so you have enough hair to clip on. For shorter haired ladies, why not go for a statement fringe a’la Mia Wallace?
