Medium-length hair can sometimes feel like being the awkward middle child – it’s neither here nor there. This doesn’t mean you’ll be out of options when it comes to hair styling though, if you can braid short hair, styling medium-length hair would be a walk in the park.

How To Do A Chic Braided Ponytail
You can easily wear this to a wedding dinner or work event. Leave some pieces of fringe loose for a more casual, sophisticated vibe. But be sure to use a hair curler or iron to add some waves.
Never cut bangs before? This shoulder-length cut with wispy fringe might convince you otherwise.
A half-bun (or hun) is a great hairstyle for both work and play — keep it a little looser on the weekend, and neaten it up at the office.
This half updo takes less than a minute to do: Simply take two sections of hair from either sides of your head, bring them together and loop them inwards. Secure with a hairtie.
Keep it simple with long layers with softly curled-in ends. Longer bangs give you a more romantic look and can make your face look slimmer too.
Highlights are a great way to add dimension and volume to your hair. Pair it with a side braid like this – it look sophisticated and helps keep the fringe off your face.
No time to do braids and twists? Simply use a statement-making barette or hair pin on one side and you’re good to go.
For a more minimalist approach, glam up your look by criss-crossing bobby pins on one side of your head.
Simply braid parts of your fringe and pin them to the back for this effortlessly elegant look.
Tie hair into a half ponytail, and twist the rest into a French twist. Secure with bobby pins and you’re done!
Similar to the braided fringe, this uses rope braids instead of the regular three-strand braid.
if your hair is long enough, use two small sections of hair to tie a loose knot. Secure with bobby pins.
There’s no such thing as too many bobby pins. Similar to the hair style above, gather sections of hair near the back and secure with bobby pins in an orderly fashion.
Top knots are great for keeping hair out of the way. This one is simply gathering hair near the crown of the head for an easy half knot.
If you have fancy fingers and adept at braiding, this braided top knot keeps long fringe from getting on your face.
Nothing says classy like a chignon. Tie hair into a low pony tail, flip the ends back into the ponytail loop and secure with bobby pins.
Part hair into three sections – tie the middle section with a hair tie. Then, carefully sleek hair from the side, covering the hair tie and wrapping it around. Secure with bobby pins and do the same for the other hair section.
This one is super easy to achieve. Just tie hair into a ponytail, form a ‘hole’ above the hair tie and loop the rest of the ponytail back in.
