Loose Waves or Tousled Updo - How Would You Wear Your Medium-Length Hair?

Karlie Kloss's name is synonymous with upbeat, effortless style. The former Victoria's Secret Angel and current L'Oréal Paris Spokesmodel is best known for her knockout legs and iconic hairstyles – after all, she gave us 'The Karlie' and brought the long bob back in trend!

In this article, we'll discuss two of the most popular hairstyles that the supermodel is often seen sporting – loose waves and a tousled updo. Both the styles work best with medium-length hair, preferably wavy, and are ideal for a daytime look or a night-out on the town.

Loose Waves

Playful, sexy and full of volume and movement, Karlie's loose waves are tousled to perfection. Her tresses are mussed but not messy and make for a fabulous day-to-night hairstyle. The loose wavy wisps of hair frame her face beautifully, draw attention to her gorgeous cheekbones and soften her overall look.

Get the Look

Spritz your damp hair with some heat protectant hairspray and divide it into multiple sections. Twist each section like a rope; holding the end out, mist it generously with tousle waves hairspray to add texture and blow-dry it completely. Repeat the step until all of the sections are dried and textured. Trace out a soft hair part of your choice. Gently finger-comb your hair to break tighter waves and finish with a generous spritz of hairspray to seal the texture for longer wear.

Tousled Updo

This tousled updo does a great job in highlighting Karlie's barely-there makeup and gorgeous shoulders. The small quiff 'lifts up' her face while the layers lend a textured finish to the updo. Loose strands on the sides add to the carefree appeal of the hairstyle.

Get the Look

Spritz some high lift creation spray on your top hair and use your fingertips to muss it up and create a disheveled texture. Section off about 2 inches of your front hair and secure it very carefully with bobby pins, without crushing the texture that you just whipped up. Finger-comb and gather the rest of your loose hair at the back of your head and twist it into a loose chignon. Slide your fingers under the top and the side layers of your mane to loosen up the 'do and finish with a generous spritz of hairspray to set your hairstyle for longer wear.
