Best Hair Extensions Mid Length Hairstyle Ideas
What are the most popular mid length hairstyle ideas for your hair extensions? Have you been inspired by Agyness Deyn’s latest hairstyle? Or, did you recently chop off inches of split ends and found yourself clueless about styling your now shoulder-length hair? Well, don’t worry. Celebrities from Mollie King httpto Adele to Geordie Shore’s Holly Hagan have made the cut and you can look as trendy and cute as they do! Just give these quick and easy mid-length hair ideas a try, and you, too, can look red-carpet fresh!
Half Up and Half Down
For a cute daytime ‘do that is just as appropriate for the office as it is for the beach, grab a medium-sized claw clip and gather half of your tresses into a makeshift ponytail on top. This is so easy. Simply divide your hair into two halves – upper head and lower head. Then make a ponytail out of the top half and clip it in place.
For extra height, do not clip the hair in place at the base of the ponytail, but secure it in place a bit higher up. This should form a fashionable “bump” on the crown of your head. The remaining loose hair can be styled in loose waves, or straightened with a flat iron for dramatic effect!
Accent Braids and Twists
Braids and twists have been all the rage for quite a while now, and if you recently chopped your long locks, you may be feeling a little left out. Don’t fear! Separate tiny strands of hair from your temples and braid or twist them tightly. Then, just fasten them towards the back of the head for an elegant, yet feminine look.
Remember, the best way to secure these accent braids and twists is by using two bobby pins. First, use one pin in a vertical position to clip the twist or braid in place, then insert the second pin straight through the tendril, opposing the natural grain of the hair. This should keep it neatly and tightly fastened, even after a night of wild dancing at the club!
Curl It Up
One of the most appealing aspects of having mid-length hair is the fact that you can style it in different ways to make it appear longer or shorter, depending upon your mood. For example, by using a curling iron with a small barrel, you can form tight curls that will give you the appearance of having a short, sassy cut, without the commitment to the scissors!
It’s so cute and so fun. This look has its roots in the vintage eras of the 20s, 30s and 40s, when high glamour reigned, and it can bring an air of sophistication to a classy evening out on the town.
For extra body, tease and separate the curls with your fingers and secure them in place using a light spritz of hairspray.
Another advantage to mid-length tresses is easily-styled up-dos! When your hair is too short, you are not able to sweep it up, but when it is too long, it can be such a chore! With shoulder-length hair, you can simply twist it up and clip it in place with a claw clip, place it in a top knot made from a short ponytail, or curl it and bobby pin it neatly at the crown.
There are so many options and they are so easy to accomplish in a pinch. With longer hair using extensions, up-dos require a lot of planning – and while up-dos with longer hair using extensions you can sometimes mimic fine art, time is something that most of us are in short supply of these days.
