Sometimes it seems like every gorgeous hairstyle is only meant for the ladies with lots of length, but that’s actually not the case. If you have mid-length hair, you can rock almost any style, no problem. Are wedding bells are in your future? Don’t feel obligated to get extensions! There are endless hairstyles that will work with your length (and your wedding!). If you’re having problems picking the right ‘do, keep reading for 12 wedding hairstyles that are perfect for your medium-length mane.
Make waves at your own wedding by adding a bit of effortless shape and motion to your hair.
What you’ll need:
L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Ruffled Body Mousse
L’Oréal Paris EverStyle Alcohol-Free Strong Hold Styling Spray
Get the look by following these simple steps:
Step 1: Use mousse. Apply an egg-sized amount of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Ruffled Body Mousse to towel-dried hair, scrunching as you go. Wait for hair to finish drying before moving on.
Step 2: Curl hair. Place the wand on a section of hair, starting just above your ear. Wrap the ends around the tool and hold for 30 seconds. Repeat until your entire head is curled, alternating the direction of your curls.
Step 3: Loosen curls. Before your locks cool off, finger comb through to turn tight curls into loose waves.
Step 4: Use hairspray. Pick a strong hold spray, like the L’Oréal Paris EverStyle Alcohol-Free Strong Hold Styling Spray, to help keep your hair from losing shape throughout your big day.
Half-up is half as hard, with all the style. These looks are ideal for medium-length hair. If your hair isn’t quite long enough for a complete updo, a half-up style will always come through. Put a twist on the style and keep things interesting by literally twisting your tresses.
