Creative Ideas for Medium Hairstyles

Having medium length hair is never easy – especially when you’re debating going longer or shorter. Hairstyles that look chic and sexy with long hair don’t exactly suit you and your shorter hair. On the other hand, your hair is too long to get the cropped, edgy look down. So what to do when you’re eager to style and not so sure how to do it? We suggest going for the half up half down look. It’s cute, sexy, and you’ll be sure to turn heads with these simple pointers. Before we get started on how to, there are a few tools you may need at your disposal to perfect the half up half down.

For starters, a teasing comb should always be a staple in your armor of hairstyling weapons, but for a half up half down hairstyle it’s almost mandatory. We suggest using Spornette Little Wonder Teasing Brush in BCA Pink. This brush has nylon bristles that allow you to get a full body look for your half up half down hairstyle. This brush also appointed end that allows you to draw a straight lined part for the most clean looking style. The next go-to style tool you need for this look is hairspray. Some added height will give this look more style and edge. Ojon’s Color Sustain Gloss Finishing Hairspray boosts vibrancy and gives a lightweight hold is perfect for the half up half down.

The best way to get the most beautiful half up half down look is to keep things soft and focus on accentuating the volume that can come from having shorter layers. Use your teasing comb to create two different layers between the top and bottom of your head. This can be as thick or thin as you desire. Avoid gathering too much hair – you don’t want to end up giving yourself a mangled ponytail. Use a hair elastic or a small clip and push your hair towards the base of your head and up. This will create height that you can hold with hairspray. If pieces fall down around your face, this shouldn’t be a problem – go for the softer look when you’re sporting a half up half down hairstyle. Anything too harsh may look juvenile.

Spring Hair Trends

Spring Hair Trends that will Leave you Speechless Spring is a subtle season, but the hair trends for the coming up season are far from discreet. Check out this article to discover the latest trends, and learn how to create these hairstyles at home! Retro Hairstyles are a Blast from the Past Retro hairstyles are making a big comeback this year. Finger waves, barrel curls, and chignons are only a few examples of old Hollywood glam that have already made a huge impact. One of the hottest looks on the red carpet this year is finger waves. These waves are tricky to set, but you can cheat by using a triple barrel curling iron to create similar results.  Start near the scalp and work your way down until the entire strand is wavy. Bright, Bold Hair Colors are Lighting Up the Runways Bright hair colors are fun and exciting for those daring enough to try them. Now is your chance to let loose because this spring it’s fashionable to draw inspiration for your new hair color from a box of crayons! You can create this trendy look with a semi-permanent hair color. This type of hair color only lasts for a few weeks, unless your hair is overly porous, making it an excellent option. If a bold semi-permanent hair color sounds like right fit for you, I recommend using a well-known brand like Manic Panic. They have a wide assortment of bright, edgy hair colors that you can choose from along with directions to create your desired result. Center Parts are Stealing Our Hearts The center part is a crisp, classic style that is making its mark in 2012. You can see this hair trend in the latest magazines, runways, and red carpets. This is a simple style that almost anyone can duplicate. All you have to do to create this look is part your hair down the middle. That’s it! If you want to create a softer style, mess up your part with your fingers. This will create a softer look that makes your center part stand apart from the rest. The Wet Look has Officially Gone from Frumpy to Fabulous Yes, this year it is stylish to look like you just stepped out of the shower. The best thing about this hairstyle is that it works for all hair types. The wet look is easy to create. All you have to do is apply Argan oil to your hair. If you love texture, mix hair gel and oil in equal parts. Then, apply the mixture to create a cool twist of this modern hairstyle.  Buy.com sells affordable Argan oil shine treatments. Bring out your inner fashionista, and be the first one of your friends to try a new Spring 2012 hair trend!
