Ideas & Tips For Medium Hairstyles

 
 
   

A great combination haircut! This style works best if the bangs on cut very blunt on the perimeter to the top of the cheekbones, then heavily razored or point cut to frame the face.

Suitable for:

Medium or thick textured hair that has little curl or wave. A great look for faces with a high forehead (oblong) and wide across the cheekbones.

Styling:

Maintenance: medium to high

Time: 20-30 minutes

Techniques: Blow dry and flat iron

Products:
Volumizer
Molding gel
Heat Protection
Paste or wax
Working or finishing spray

Styling Steps:

Apply volumizer to root area and gel to remaining hair. Blow dry until hair is mostly dry. A round or paddle brush works well to direction hair around face. Lightly mist with heat protection and slide a flat iron to finish. Apply paste or wax to fingertips and sculpt hair in a “c” shape towards the face. Apply finishing or working spray to set the style.

 

Chic and sleek!This is style that girls who have fine thin hair can wear with dash, flair and style.

Suitable for:

oval, round, square and diamond shape faces. Works well with hair that is on the fine, thin and relatively straight.

Styling:

Maintenance: low

Time: 10-15 minutes

Techniques: Blow dry

Products:
Aguage Fortifying Gel
Aquage Working Spray
Aquage Beyond Shine

Styling Steps:

Generously apply gel to all the hair, working through from scalp to ends. Blow dry on high heat, with low air flow. Use a paddle brush to style hair towards face without creating volume. Mist lightly with Beyond Shine and direction ends of hair away from neck with a flat or curling iron to create a soft, flirty kick. Apply Working Spray to set.

 

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE BANGS in this very retro, yet refined look. Bangs are big and can totally change the look of the simplest hair style.

Suitable for:

A high, wide forehead is a must to carry the heavy fringe. Straight, medium or fine textured hair will make this look work.

Styling:

Maintenance: low

Time: 10-15 minutes

Techniques: Blow dry and flat iron

Products: Light hold mousse or gel and Working or finishing spray

Styling Steps:

Blow dry hair without volume. Keep the hair close to the head. This is a great “second day” style if the hair is not too fine or thin. Apply a light spray to the fringe area and iron hair with quick strokes.

 

Straight, sleek and sexy! Beautifully suited to hair that is naturally straight or has been professionally chemically straightened.

Suitable for:

for oval, oblong and diamond face shapes. This style could also accommodate a round face, as long as there was height added to the crown and the bangs were side swept. Hair texture should be medium to coarse and will style easily if hair lacks curl and frizz

Styling:

Maintenance: medium

Time: 10 to 15 minutes, without curl. Will be much longer if hair requires significant flat ironing.

Products:
Aguage Ultra Straightening Gel
Aguage Beyond Shine (medium texture)
Chi Shine Infusion (coarse hair)

Styling Steps:

Generously apply straightening gel to all hair

Blow dry using fingers to 80% dry

Use paddle brush to direction bangs and direction hair until completely dry towards face and neck

Spray desired shine product and slide a quick pass with a flat iron, if necessary

Don’t forget your veil!

 

Sassy, contemporary BOB! The “BOB” is a classic style that has seen many updated versions. Last year, Posh Spice sported a geometric interpretation that was affectionately referred to as “The Pob.”

Suitable for:

The ideal cut for a round face, although it also looks fab on oblong and oval shapes. Hair texture can range from fine to coarse, wavy to straight. Highlights, lowlights and many forms of dimensional color kick this classic to new heights!

Styling:

Maintenance: Medium to high depending upon wave

Time: 10 to 20 minutes

Techniques: Blow dry, Flat or 1½ curling iron

Products:
Pureology Root Boost (great line for color treated hair)

Styling Steps:

Apply Root Boost to crown and top of head

Apply desired gel to remaining hair

Blow dry with fingers to 80% dry

Paddle or round brush hair in desired direction until 100% dry, but do not over dry.

Take small sections at crown, bangs and around face and spray with spritz lightly with Working Spray and desired shine/heat protection product.

Using desired iron, shape hair from scalp to ends to shape face and create desired volume

Finish style with additional Working and Shine spray
