How To Score These Hairstyles for Mid Length Hair

These Hairstyles for Mid Length Hair are Pretty & Versatile

A vast majority of my clients look their best with mid length hair. Mid length is what I recommend for those clients who’ve had the long straight look since their college days. Going from long hair to a mid length style is an easy transition to something new and different. Quit debating over whether to grow your hair past the shoulders, or to go short with something off the ears . . .  these two hairstyles for mid length hair are hot. Not too long, not too short, mid length hair can be customized to look good on any face shape. An on top of that, they are versatile and easy to maintain. These two looks will have you feeling like you just walked out of the salon with these simple DIY how-to tips.

A Mid-Length Hairstyle with Razored Ends

  • THE CUT ~~ Mid-length hair is incredibly versatile when you pay attention to details. When women want to keep as much length as possible, Frances DuBose of London Hair in Mt. Peasant, SC, puts most of the focus on the ends. By lightly razoring sections in front, she adds an airy, feathery feeling to hair that’s otherwise blunt and thick.
  • THE COLOR ~~ Blonde this bright usually comes from lightening, then toning the hair. To keep the hair color in the realm of reality, a few golden highlights are also added for depth and dimension. Depending on your natural hair color, you will have to make a commitment to upkeep; but isn’t the best of blondes worth it?
  • HOW TO STYLE IT ~~ Apply a volumizing mousse through towel dried hair, dry most of it by using a wide paddle brush and large sections. While hair is still a bit damp, add lift and curve at the sides using a round brush, then curve the ends forward and flip them up. To help hair hold, mist ends underneath with a finishing spray.

Mid Length Hairstyle With a Flip

  • THE CUT ~~ Beautifully thick mid length hair gets the high-class treatment from Frances DuBose, who graduates ends to add kick and keeps the top super-smooth. When flipped up, ends stack up on one another, becoming the focal point of the haircut.
  • THE COLOR ~~ Brunettes go for hot chocolate this fall, and this shade is perfectly matched to skin tone with a hint of underlying plum. While most brunettes have cool undertones, that’s not always the case. For the best color, find out if warm or cool brunette is best for you.
  • HOW TO STYLE IT ~~ Get out your hair styling mist and your medium diameter round hair brush. Remove excess moisture from your hair first, setting your hair dryer on high heat. Then mist on a styling gel and concentrate on turning ends up. Work in sections from front to back, and the bottom up. Then touch up ends again for a finish you’ll flip for.

Mid-Length Hairstyle How To

Mid-Length Hairstyle

If You’re Looking for a Mid-Length Hairstyle Try This Stunning Look

Bring your thick, mid-length hairstyle to life with long layers that add kick to the ends. When hair is roller-set, you can go longer between trims because the shape is set-in. To customize the cut, Eman Ellaham of Fantastic Sams in Southern California parts hair asymmetrically and adds shortest layers on the heavy side. This adds soft curve and makes the most of naturally thick hair. The longer back is cut into a slightly curved line, so the back blends into the sides perfectly. Even if you don’t set your hair, it takes on the swing and movement that’s the hallmark of healthy locks.

  • This Mid-Length Hairstyle Works Best If:

    • Your hair is medium to dense in volume and medium in texture.

    • Your hair is straight or has some natural wave.

  • This Hairstyle Requires:

    • A roller set. For a long-lasting set, start with damp hair and use medium and jumbo-sized rollers. Set the sides in the medium rollers, winding just the last few inches around the roller. Set the entire back on jumbo-sized rollers for body and curve. Once hair has dried, unwind rollers, brush out curls gently and turn the back under.

    • A trim every 6 to 8 weeks.

  • This Hairstyle is Not Recommended If:

    • Your hair is too fine to create lush curls when set.

Katie Holmes New Mid Length Hairstyle

Mid Length Hairstyle
Katie Holmes Mid Length Hairstyle is a Hit!!

My hair salon is buzzing about Katie Holmes’ new mid length hairstyle that she debuted on the November cover of Elle Magazine. My clients are not the only ones who have fallen head over heels for this mid length hairstyle. Internet blogs and discussion boards are buzzing about this new mid length hairstyle too!

How to Get this Mid Length Hairstyle

Katie has naturally smooth, straight hair that is of a medium thickness. This hair type is ideal for this mid length hairstyle, but not absolutely necessary to get the end result.
If you have hair like Katie’s, ask your hairdresser to cut a mid length bob with layering throughout and lots of texture.

To style it, blow dry until 75% dry and then use a round brush to dry the rest into this style. Use a small amount of wax to get the texture and piecey-ness seen on Katie’s hairstyle.

If your hair is thick and wavy like mine, you’ll want to ask your hair dresser for basically the same thing but have them add additional texture to get this hairstyle to lay just right. I would suggest blow drying with a paddle brush and flat ironing hair, flipping out the ends. Use a bit of pomade on the ends to add texture and shine.

If you have thin and/or fine hair, you’ll want to ask for layering but have your hair dresser go easy on the texturizing as it can thin out your hair too much. Use a root amplifier like Sexy Hair, Big Sexy Hair Root Pump or other volumizing products, instead of texturizing hair products, which may weigh down your hair, to create Katie’s mid length hairstyle.

This new mid length hairstyle has got to be my favorite Katie Holmes’ hairstyle. Here’s a look back at past Katie Holmes Hairstyles:

This hairstyle is just ho-hum. Long, one-length light brown hair doesn’t do much for this girl.

Although this long hairstyle is youthful, it still isn’t the ideal hairstyle for Katie.
