Cute Hairstyles For "In-Between" Hair

I have always been a long hair kinda girl but every so often I go drastic and chop it off. Like most girls, I find myself shortly after, dying for it to grow back out. A few years ago I did it again. I took my long hair and went for a short bob. I LOVED IT! LOVED LOVED LOVED IT! It was shaped in a way that made styling it super easy and because of this, I always felt polished. For the first time eva, I kept it that way - short - for a few years. I would toy with the idea of growing it out but would miss the sleek bob and chop it again. My husband even loved it and would always tell me to keep it that way.

The last year I have been obsessed with sock buns. OBSESSED. I even tried it out with my shorter hair (and plenty of bobby pins) and it was alriiiight. I decided not to cut it too much after my baby bro got engaged so that I would be able to do an updo for his wedding. I sort of succeeded. I cut it a few times but not up to my chin. Well the wedding is now over and I was able to do the updo (YAY) so I'm left deciding what to do. The answer? I really wanna rock that ultra sleek sock bun at the (almost) tippy top of my head. 

So the in-between stage is where I shall remain for now. This is the dreaded stage for most women growing out their hair but I'm determined to have fun with it. Here are a few styles to try with in-between hair.

This bun is great if your hair is long enough to get it on the top of your head but you still have hair falling out on the bottom that's too short. Tutorial for something similar here.


How cute is Miss Naomi from Love Taza? She always has some cute braided thing going on. Here is a helpful tutorial I found on youtube that is similar.

Curls with volume - the great thing about having shorter hair is that it's much easier to achieve bouncy and voluminous curls

A few tips for achieving these styles:

Allow hair to air dry for added texture so that the styles hold
Use dry shampoo for the same reason
Tease your crown for height and a more sophisticated look
Embellish with cute accessories - Forever21 is GREAT for hair accessories
Bobbi Pins are your friend

I'll be trying some of these styles soon. They might even make an appearance on the blog! What styles do you like for medium length hair?
