Women often struggle with finding the perfect hairstyle that can be done quickly, without spending too much time styling in front of the bathroom mirror. Luckily, there are a variety of appealing hairstyles that are suitable for short to medium hair. It’s easy to take a look in the mirror, see yourself with a boring hairstyle and feel a bit disheartened, especially when you’re short on time or lack the styling skills. But with a bit of creativity and experimentation, you can make the most of what you have and look gorgeous! Here are 25 of the best hairstyles to help you get started.
The Classic Bob
The classic bob is timeless hairstyle that never goes out of fashion. It’s perfect for short to medium hair and requires little effort or styling. All that’s required is a good hair-dryer, a comb and some hairspray to keep the look neat and tidy.
The Sleek Blunt Cut
This sleek, straight hairstyle is perfect for those with thick hair. The blunt cut is just what it sounds like, the ends of the hair are cut in a straighter line and the entire look is slightly cropped. It looks best when the hair is slicked back for a slick, neat look.
The Wavy Lob
The wavy lob is perfect for those looking for a carefree, ‘I woke up like this’ hairstyle. The hair is cut to one length and then parted around the middle, creating some natural looking waves. This look can work for all hair types and is super easy to achieve with a curling iron and a bit of hairspray.
Sometimes all it takes to add volume and texture to short or medium hair is a layered cut. This is especially true for those with curly or wavy hair, as the layers will create some extra bounce and depth to otherwise limp, lifeless hair. A light curling can help this look come alive.
The Messy Pixie Cut
The messy pixie cut is perfect for those who want to make a bold statement. This style combines a bit of edginess with an effortless look. To achieve this look, use a pomade or gel to create ‘textured’ look, where the hair looks slightly disheveled. This look pairs well with a bit of light hairspray to maintain its shape.
The Undone Top Knot
The undone top knot is a great way to create a laid-back, easy look. All it requires is gathering all your hair up in a top bun, secure with an elastic, then use your fingers to pull out a few strands of hair for the laid-back effect. This look looks best when some light hairspray is added to hold the shape.
