Whether you’ve got short, medium, long or super long hair, you deserve to look good each day! From everyday blow drying to party time updos, keep reading for some great tutorials.
Here are some hairstyles for different hair lengths that will help you look gorgeous, and won’t be that complicated to do. All you’ll need are a couple of styling tools, a bit of practice and maybe some helping hands.
Work out what sort of looks you can create with your hair length by experimenting and playing around with it!
Hairstyles for Short Hair
Of course there are different types of short hair, so styling both will be really different. So let’s start by saying that the way you can style short hair will depend on the cut you get. If you’ve got a short pixie crop, then you won’t be able to do much more than be playful with hair gel and wax.
If you’ve got a short bob, then there’s more to work with. Get your straighteners and curling tongs out of your drawer, go get a hair magazine and some Kirby grips. Play around with different directions…pull it forward as you straighten for an edgy look, and pull it backwards for a vintage retro do.
Accentuate the natural curl of your hair, and then straighten your bangs, for a very funky up-to-date hairstyle. If you want another short naturally curly hairstyle, you could simply even out the curls with some tongs or even a straightener, so that your natural look seems more styled and finished.
Or, you could straighten all of it. This will give you a very styled, futuristic hairstyle, and it looks amazing with bangs. Make sure to compliment the bold statement with some well applied makeup.
Hairstyles for Medium Length Hair
Medium length hair is notoriously frustrating to style. It hasn’t quite got the length required to do some of the fabulous long hairstyles, but it’s too long to just leave to be a statement by itself.
But. There are a couple of things you could do. Firstly, the favorite grungy hairstyle is to twist and pin strands of hair towards the back of your head to create a messy updo. Literally take a couple inch piece of hair, twist it until it curls and pin to the back of your head, keep going until it’s all back. Edit it so it doesn’t look too clean or snake-like.
Or if you haven’t got too many layers you could try wrapping it into a chignon or bun. Pin it in place and spray some hairspray on it. You could use a bun mould to make it look bigger.
Or consider getting some clip-in hair extensions to make your hair appear longer than it is. There are some great brands out there with brilliant color matched human hair extensions, for a reasonable price too! That way you can really change the way your hair looks instantly!
Hairstyles for Long Hair
There are so many option for long hairstyles. Check out the New Hair Styles guide to see which looks you could recreate.
Most importantly, keep your hair in good condition with a hair mask every week, and a special conditioning treatment at your hairdressers each month. Use a wide tooth comb instead of a brush whilst it is wet or damp, to prevent the ends from splitting.
Try your hair straight or curly, or a mix of both. Braid it in different ways, and pin it back or up.
Instead of chopping off the length of your hair when you get tired of your look, change the color or cut yourself some bangs. That way you’ll look like you’ve just stepped off the catwalk, but you won’t regret cutting it all off!
