Hottest Medium-Length Hairstyles
We've all been there ... stuck in that difficult spot of finally growing out last season's bob, but now unsure of what to do with those shoulder-length tresses; or, maybe you're ready to take the leap and cut your hair into a lob but you're not exactly sure how to style it. Thankfully, medium cuts are not only in vogue, but also provide tons of styling options that give you plenty of versatility. Keep reading to discover three ways you can touch up your locks for a fresh spin on your 'do.
A little bit of layering goes a long way. Ask your stylist to add some texture with subtle layering, which can give you tons of new styling options. And if you love the easy, low-maintenance cut, this hairstyle is made just for you. How to style it: Start by washing and towel-drying your hair. Then blow dry while running your fingers through to separate strands. When your hair is almost-but-not-quite dry, add a little bit of texturizing product, such as Garnier Fructis De-Constructed Beach Chic. Run your fingers through your hair, twist individual strands, scrunch and tease the roots to create the perfect undone look. Once hair is dry, you can add volume and hold with dry texturizing spray, like Garnier Fructis De-Constructed Texture Tease. It's simple and sure to boost your confidence and turn heads!
Give It Some Wave
Chic waves are the best of all worlds — they're sweet, alluring and particularly suited to medium-length hair. They're also fantastic for those with finer hair, as they add plenty of volume.
How to style it: After washing, add a touch of Garnier Fructis Sky-Hi Volume Mousse to add body and grip to the hair, then blow dry. After blow drying your hair completely, use a large-barrel curling iron to curl large strands of hair. Tousle them gently to give a more natural look; this gives you waves, rather than just a straight curl. Top it off with Fructis Sheer Set hairspray to hold the look while keeping your waves touchably soft and allowing them plenty of movement.
The Mod Bob
For those who want a sleeker, volumized look, a mod bob is super fun yet refined. This style uses stacked layers in the back to give a gentle sloping effect to the hair while keeping plenty of volume at the top. This is a great option for every texture of hair, but for those with finer hair it can be particularly helpful, as it boosts natural volume without a lot of product.
How to style it
After washing, add some Garnier Fructis Full and Plush Root Lift Mousse directly to roots and blow dry using a round brush, turning ends under. If you prefer a straight, sleek finish, simply forego the round brush and touch up your ends with a flat iron when you've finished drying. There's no need to settle into a hair rut. Give your locks a fresh spin with one of these hot looks, and you'll step out in style!
