 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.

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.

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. This medium hairstyle requires a lot of heat styling to get such voluminous curls, so be prepared to spend some time with your curling iron. Finally, the length of your bangs will depend on your face shape – consult with your stylist.

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.

24. Lea Michele Medium Hairstyle: Cute side-plait

Glee star Lea Michelle has also joined the “plait pack”, and we think she looks simply adorable with her cute side-plait. She gives this classic medium hairstyle extra impact with teased hair on top and by leaving her plait loose and tousled. To make sure your plait stays in place all day, secure it with small hair-ties both at the top and at the end.

We think medium hairstyles with asymmetrical, deep side-partings are going to be very popular in 2014.

Olivia keeps it simple with a sweeping side-parting and subtle curls.

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.

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.

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.

46. Ashley Olsen Medium Hairstyle: Dramatic middle parting

One half of the Olsen twins, Ashley Olsen is known for her off-the-wall style sense. Here she looks oh-so-bohemian with a dramatic middle parting and flowing, glossy locks. A middle parting doesn’t suit every face, however, so experiment with it before you decide on this hairstyle.

51. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Medium Hairstyle: Flawless blowout

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. The key to a perfect blowout is to dry hair in sections, and to use a good quality heat-protecting product on your hair, to keep it looking fabulous.
