Turn Heads With These 25 Medium-Length Updos

Maybe you haven’t really tried wearing your hair up because you think it’s not long enough to look stylish. Well, I can assure you that you’re missing out! Medium-length hair is just right for pulling off versatile ponytails, braids, and buns.

You can use many of these styles to spice up your casual looks or work outfits, but also to steal the spotlight at birthdays, parties, or weddings. Here are 25 stunning updos for medium length hair.

1. Infinity Bun

This isn’t a bun you see everyday. It’s a chic hairstyle that elegantly accentuates your neck. I suggest you save this one for a special occasion! The best part is that you can definitely create it yourself. Simply tie your hair into a low ponytail, then roll it a couple of times to achieve this distinct bun look.

Secure it with bobby pins and use a hair straightener to perfectly straighten a strand of hair that sticks out.

2. Low Bun With Pearls

This one is definitely wedding-worthy. A low sleek bun and a lot of pearls to ensure you shine bright like a diamond.

3. Soft Prom Updo

A low bun decorated with a romantic hair accessory: a great prom updo for all girls with medium-long hair. It’s elegant, keeps your hair away from your face, and allows you to dance the night away comfortably.

4. Cute Low Bun

This hairstyle is pure elegance. It’s suitable as a work updo when you aim to look exceptionally professional, yet it’s sophisticated enough for formal occasions like weddings.

5. High Textured Bun

A high textured bun doesn’t only make your hair look more voluminous, but it also provides you with a great hairstyle when you want to hide dirty hair. Fringe gives a special touch to this hairstyle and frames your face beautifully.

This might not be your go-to everyday hairstyle, but it’s guaranteed to turn heads at events like Christmas or New Year’s parties!
