Medium or shoulder-length haircuts are often dismissed as boring, non-decisions but this girl proves otherwise. Styled straight, this pretty hairstyle with bangs is a great halfway option and is a look that can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion.
Neither too long nor too short, this style is long enough to gather into an updo but still short enough to make a style statement when left loose. It's also a 'do that is super easy to maintain and, due to its length, is really manageable.
With her heavy-ish bangs, this girl's look had a slightly vintage, retro feel. The minimalism of this bright blond hairstyle makes it really stand out, especially next to the detailed collar.
If you're considering a new medium hairstyle, this one could be perfect, with or without bangs. Before you allow your stylist anywhere near your hair with their scissors, however, check out our guide to choosing the right bangs for your face shape. After all, what works on this girl might not be so flattering for you.
Get the texture
The main reason this hairstyle makes such an impact is the silky smooth texture it has. If you want your hair to behave in a similar way, you may need to give it a helping hand. If you have particularly coarse or unruly hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray after blow-drying.
Alternatively, run a flat iron through your locks after applying Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray. This will help create a super sleek, touchable finish.
A finishing touch
If you want to add a little extra detail to a look like this, try wearing a headband. A monotone Alice band will accentuate the vintage aspect of this hairstyle, and it'll give you a great excuse to start experimenting with some heavy 1960's eyeliner! Think Twiggy, only with a long bob...
