5 hairstyle ideas for short and medium length hair

If you recently had a haircut you may be proud of your beautiful cut and want to enjoy it to the fullest. Or maybe you’re regretting that you can’t do your fashion hair anymore, since your new cut doesn’t give you enough for that. Whatever your case is, we’re here to help you. In this post we propose hairstyles for short and medium hair that you will love.

Hairstyles for short and medium hair, easy to do


Short hair has certain advantages, for example, that you can comb and style it much faster than long hair. But it’s also true that if you want to do the fashionable hairstyles, it’s more difficult with short hair. But being positive, there are many possibilities to be creative even if your hair is short.

Take a look at the following ideas for short and medium hairstyles and you’ll see how easy they are to do. With just a little practice you can do them in a few minutes.

First hairstyle

It’s a very original hairstyle, which seems more elaborate than it really is. It is ideal for short, bob or long bob hair.


Start by making two pigtails on the back of your head, taking only the hair from the crown of your head (figure 1). After they are done, invert the pigtails (figure 2). That is to say, you must open a tail over the gummy and enter the ends of the tail and continue with the rest, until it turns completely.

Then take two locks of hair from the sides and form another ponytail in the centre, as in figure 3. Also invert the ponytail in the centre (figure 4). And make another ponytail in the middle and invert it too (figures 6-8). To give it a romantic touch, thin out a little the hair of the buns so that they are more voluminous, as shown in figure 9. Ready!

Second hairstyle

You can also do this hairstyle if you have a bob cut or half a mane. And it’s even easier than the first hairstyle.


You have to make a finite ponytail just below the crown of your head, taking finite locks. Reverse the pigtail. In this case it’s very easy to reverse because there’s a pretty open hole above the pigtail, so you just have to turn it around. Then you must make another pigtail underneath, of the same dimensions as the previous one, and invert it as well. Do the same with three more pigtails. Must be five pigtails in all.

As in the first hairstyle, thin the hair of the ponytails and the crown of the head to make it look more casual and romantic.

Anyone who sees you with this hairstyle will wonder how you’ve done it.

Third hairstyle

This hairstyle is even simpler than the previous ones. All you have to do is make a little ponytail out of the crown hair. Thicken the hair of the ponytail in the part of the crown a little to give a little volume to the toupee, as seen in figure 2. If you compare figure 1 with figure 2 you will realize what I mean when I say to thin the hair of the crown a little. In doing so, the collected part of the ponytail becomes more voluminous, and not so crushed to the head.

Then make a braid on each side of the head (figure 3) and thin the hair of each one a little to make them fatter and fuller (figure 4). Now join them from behind, at the height of the ponytail, so that, with the ends of the braids and with the ponytail, you make another ponytail (figure 5). As an option you can put a hook or a pin that you like to cover the gummy (figure 6).

Fourth combed


The fourth hairstyle is ideal for short hair, even when it is above the shoulders. But you can also do it on longer manes and it looks great. It’s also ideal for those days when you’re not going to wash your head, but you don’t want to look sloppy. It’s very quick to do, so it’s ideal for those days when you don’t have much time to get ready.

The first step is to make a semi-recollected queue, which is close to the nape of the neck. If you want, leave a few strands framing the face to give the hairstyle a more casual touch (figure 1). Add volume to the crown, thinning the hair a little (figure 2). Now all you have to do is add an ornament, which can be a ribbon, a knotted handkerchief, or any detail you like. You can curl a little the locks that frame the face, if you want it to look more romantic and delicate.

Fifth hairstyle


This hairstyle is very simple too. All you have to do is make three loose ponytails at the nape of your neck. Invert the three pigtails, making them turn around, each one on itself (figure 1). Then, with them, make a low ponytail, in the center (figure 2). Thin the hair of the crown and the surroundings, to give it volume and make it more beautiful (figure 3). Use an ornament to cover the rubber band (figure 4).

Tricks to make these hairstyles for short and medium hair.

1. If your hair is straight and you think the volume won’t hold, use a volumizer powder or a dry shampoo. The volumizer powder provides a volume infallible and durable. On the other hand, the dry shampoo not only serves to give the hair the clean aspect, but also serves to give volume or texturize the hair and to keep the hairstyle better.

2. For a more sophisticated and romantic look it is necessary that you give volume to the hairstyles in the crown. The second trick, which does not fail, is to make some waves in front, framing the face. These two simple tips make the difference between simple hairstyles and beautiful romantic and flattering hairstyles.

3. If reversing pigtails is difficult for you, you can use a special tool to make inverted pigtails, like the ones you can see in the next photo. I’m sure it’ll make your job a lot easier. You can buy it on ebay or on aliexpress, if you can’t find it in a physical store.
