If your hair is somewhere between a lob and a Rapunzel, you don't need us to tell you that this length — while totally gorgeous — is pretty difficult to style. But, we believe in a No Haircut Left Behind approach to 'dos, and medium-length locks are no exception. So, we called in hairstylist Reagan Baker of Whittemore House Salon to help us come up with fresh, edgy, spring-perfect ways to style a medium cut. (If your locks are a different length, stay tuned! We'll be coming out with more spring hair DIYs all month).
Whether you're hoping to infuse your 'do with a texture that's grungy and sophisticated or you're in the mood for an ethereally pretty half-up twist, the looks we're sharing are guaranteed to make your medium-length hair a serious spotlight hog. Of course, these styles will work on just about any length, but they're simply perfect for hair that falls a few inches below the shoulders. Ahead, see how to give your coiff the gorgeous spring update it deserves.
