My bathroom vanity is littered with the latest skincare products. I have a collection of fragrances that’s slowly overtaking my apartment, and the number of makeup products I own is roughly comparable to that of a single Sephora aisle. I’m a acknowledged beauty addict, yet I almost never style my hair. Actually, now that I think about it, I almost never even apply product to my strands unless it’s a hair serum or some other tried-and-true favorite. Does that make me a bad beauty writer?
My medium-length hair is of course wavy and dry, which is why I’ve historically strayed from heat tools. Instead, I wake up, comb through it, grab a hair elastic to sling around my wrist, and, yeah, that’s about it as far as any semblance of a hair routine goes. That’s all well and good most of the time, but lately I’ve been feeling like I’m stuck in a hair rut. I’m bored with my style (or lack thereof). In other words, I’m in major need of some good old hair inspiration—styles that I can turn to when I’m short on time and motivation in the early mornings.
That’s why I combed the web for the best hairstyles for medium-length hair. I found 12, and they’re good if I do say so myself. So scroll on to get inspired.
