Actress Emma Stone looks stunning with her mid-length blonde hair and blunt bangs. This simple hairdo is given a touch of glamour by subtle caramel and platinum streaks.

Australian model and Victoria’s Secret angel Miranda Kerr makes the most of her chocolate-brown locks by wearing her hair in luscious, heavy waves.

Country singer Taylor Swift wears her gorgeous honey-blonde hair loose, with chunky blunt bangs that accentuate her eyes. She completes the look with super-smooth hair and a slight curl at the ends.

4. Kim Kardashian Medium Hairstyle: Messy plait with regal braid
Take inspiration from reality-star Kim Kardashian and wear your medium-length hair in a messy Grecian plait. This look is fresh and playful, and you can add an extra braid on top to give this ‘do a royal flair. We think Kim looks just like a Greek princess with this pretty medium hairstyle.
5. Rihanna Medium Hairstyle: Long grey curls
Grey isn’t usually our first choice when picking a brand new hair colour, but songstress Rihanna shows us that it can look pretty awesome indeed. She wears her hair in big black curls with grey ombre (a gradual change in colour or shade from dark to light), and accessorizes with metallic lipstick and gold jewelry. If you’re worried about looking older with grey hair, add a little lavender to brighten it up. We can definitely see grey being a hot, edgy hair colour for 2014.
6. Blake Lively Medium Hairstyle: Playful ponytail
Gossip Girl actress and fashionista Blake Lively looks effortlessly fresh-faced with her playful blonde ponytail. Her hair is tousled and textured, and her face is framed by a few wispy flyaway hairs.

7. Jessica Alba Medium Hairstyle: Glamorous ombre curls
We are so envious of actress Jessica Alba’s elaborately curled shoulder-length hairdo. With a deep side parting and dramatic ombre ends, this medium hairstyle is simply perfect.

8. Selena Gomez Medium Hairstyle: Classy, voluminous ponytail
Singer Selena Gomez looks classy and professional with her high, voluminous ponytail. This look is achieved by teasing medium-to long hair before pulling it back and securing it in a high ponytail.

Actress Jennifer Aniston never disappoints when it comes to her classic, girl-next-door hairstyles. Here she shows off a medium hairstyle with glossy, straight layers and a side parting.

Sultry Twilight actress Kristen Stewart oozes sex appeal with a dramatic side parting and long, flowing curls.

12. Rita Ora Medium Hairstyle: Small, thick plait
British singer Rita Ora mixes it up with an adorable blonde plait and bright pink lipstick. She’s not afraid to let her roots show, and they form a striking contrast with her dyed blonde hair. This medium hairstyle is great for thick hair, and we think it’s a lovely everyday ‘do.
13. Jessica Chastain Medium Hairstyle: Wavy red locks

14. Ashley Greene Medium Hairstyle: Sexy layered hairdo
We absolutely love Twilight actress Ashley Greene’s hair colour! Here she wears her rich and shiny chocolate-brown hair loose with layers and a middle parting. The middle parting is very flattering for her diamond-shaped face, as it softens the angles of her jaw.

17. Zooey Deschanel Medium Hairstyle: Bouncy curls with bangs
“Adorkable” actress Zooey Deschanel wears a head of dreamy, bouncy curls and her signature bangs on the red carpet.

22. Vanessa Hudgens Medium Hairstyle: Tousled, curly side-plait
Singer and actress Vanessa Hudgens looks ‘too cool for school’ with this tousled, curly side-plait. If you have curly hair like Vanessa, don’t be afraid to plait your hair – it can look great as a slightly deconstructed (messy) side-plait. If you like, let a few strands loose to frame your face.

29. Jessica Biel Medium Hairstyle: Loose with long bangs
Actress Jessica Biel wears her medium length hair loose with long, chunky bangs. She keeps her hair colour natural, with a few carefully placed highlights that brighten up her face. This medium hairstyle works best with straight hair, but it’s possible to tame your bangs with a hair straightener.

32. Kirsten Dunst Medium Hairstyle: Retro headband
It seems that headbands are back in fashion! Actress Kirsten Dunst pulls off the girl-next-door look perfectly with her cute and practical medium hairstyle.

33. Cara Delevingne Medium Hairstyle: Loose with deep middle-parting
Supermodel Cara Delevigne is effortlessly beautiful with her simple medium hairstyle. This ‘do is kept loose and worn with a deep middle-parting so that the face is neatly framed. For a more interesting ‘do, mix it up with subtle layers and dip-dyed ends like Cara.

Dianne contrasts her simple hairdo with an elaborate ear cuff – a great accessory for edgy hairstyles.
35. Olivia Wilde Medium Hairstyle: Deep side parting
We think medium hairstyles with asymmetrical, deep side-partings are going to be very popular in 2014. With the likes of Rihanna, Jessica Alba, Kristen Stewart, and Olivia Wilde rocking this trend, there are many A-list variations to choose from. Olivia keeps it simple with a sweeping side-parting and subtle curls.
36. Jennifer Lawrence Medium Hairstyle: Feathered low ponytail
Another predicted hot medium hair trend for 2014 – the low ponytail, with plenty of layers. Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence looks sultry and mysterious with her long bangs obscuring her face. Feel free to wear your ponytail slightly messy, with plenty of layers sticking out.
37. Thandie Newton Medium Hairstyle: Perfect middle parting
If you have a round face like actress Thandie Newton, choose a flattering middle-parting over a side-swept fringe for your medium length hair. Thandie looks radiant with her loose, medium hair, and her middle parting subtly elongates her round face. Just a small word of warning – middle partings are not always flattering for longer, more angular faces.
38. Jessica Chastain Medium Hairstyle: Romantic coiffed ‘do
Actress Jessica Chastain turned heads at this year’s Golden Globe Awards with her romantic, coiffed hairstyle. To recreate Jessica’s breathtaking hairstyle, part your hair in the middle and pull hair back, away from your face.

41. Kate Hudson Medium Hairstyle: Layers and more layers
Actress Kate Hudson looks carefree and casual with her wispy layered hair. Layers are possibly the easiest way to update your medium hairstyle, and they look particularly great if you have an angular (square, rectangular) face shape. Make sure that your shortest layer ends just below your chin!
42. Cara Delevingne Medium Hairstyle: Alternative and edgy
Cara Delevingne unleashes her inner punk rocker and shows off a side-parted, half-braided hairdo at this year’s Met Gala. Not your everyday hairstyle, this look takes quite a bit of work – but we think that it would look fantastic at a themed party. For added impact, bulk up your brows with an eyebrow-pencil.
43. Amber Heard Medium Hairstyle: Side-swept curls
Yet another celebrity has nailed the side-swept medium hairstyle: Amber Heard looks stunning with a deep side-parting and subtle curls. The secret to this hairstyle is to keep the hair in place – to do this, create a small french braid from the right to the left side of your head, and pin your swept-back hair to the braid. Spray with hairspray, and let the rest of your hair cascade past your face.
44. Beyonce Medium Hairstyle: Big wavy blow-out

We are ridiculously jealous of supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s flawless blowout. This is a great medium hairstyle for finer hair, as it creates volume and lots of movement.

Homeland actress Claire Danes keeps it simple with her shoulder-length, layered blonde hair. This medium hairstyle is low maintenance, yet very flattering.
