From choppy beach waves to sleek twists, medium length hairstyles are universally flattering. With the ghd range of curling wands and tongs as your styling kit, create shoulder-skimming volume or throw your hair into a tousled updo for off-duty glam.
With so many hairstyles for medium hair to try, we’ve created a guide to the quickest and most glamorous out there. Whether you’re short on time in the morning or need a speedy work-to-evening update, these effortless mid-length hairstyles add instant style points.
Pull your mid-length hair into a low-slung bun for laid-back glamour. This easy-going look can be rocked everywhere from festivals to the office, with a sweeping braid to bring a bohemian feel to the style. Wear as a tousled bun and lightly mist with ghd final fix hairspray for a soft-touch hold.
Tip: Bring the braid into a loose chignon for instant romance.
Otherwise known as the ‘hun’ (half-up half-down bun), this is one of the best mid-length hairstyles for keeping tresses away from your face, without losing that feminine length. Create loose waves using the ghd curve® soft curl tong and tie back the top half of your hair for polished perfection.

The pin-straight look is perfect for mid-length hair. To keep those strands looking shiny and sleek, straighten with the ghd platinum® styler. It’s designed by ghd scientists to protect your hair health* and maximise shine by 20%**. A no-fuss look that really means business.
Tip: Set your perfect straight style and boost shine by brushing from roots to ends with the ghd oval dressing brush.
One of the best things about mid-length hairstyles is you’ve still got the hair to create an updo. The bouffant is a gorgeous example - this style made a strong comeback from its 60s heyday and remains a favourite among the fashion savvy.
Tip: Make sure you keep your bouffant intact with ghd final fix hairspray and add a cute cat-eye flick to your makeup routine for easy retro beauty.
