17 Chic Braided Hairstyles for Medium Length Hair

If you have medium length hair, it can be tricky looking for braided style ideas on the internet.  Many articles are for long or short hair but hardly ever about medium length hair.  That is why we have written this article.  It is all for the medium length girls out there!

Summer is here and we all want to spruce up our hair with some funky braided designs.  Braids are an essential hairstyle for summer and will immediately get you in the summer mood.

We know how it feels to run out of hairstyling ideas.  We all need hair inspiration at some point so we have come up with 17 chic braided hairstyles for all of you that have medium length hair.

1. Messy Fishtail Braids Half Up

Two trending styles in one, what more could you ask for? Messy hair has been trending and so has fishtails.  We all love to have messy hair.  For anyone that’s new to messy hair, it’s controlled messy hair not just messy hair.  The ‘just got out of bed’ look is a favourite of ours.  This style is easy to create.  Start by grabbing the top hair section for your fishtail and braid away.

2. Loose and Messy French Braid Style

If fishtails aren’t your thing, go for a French braid. Loose and messy are a match made in heaven.  They create a gorgeous and girly hairstyle that many girls love.  It goes with any outfit and even bridesmaids are opting for messy hairstyles.

3. Side Dutch Braid

This style is perfect for any occasion. It is fun, neat and girly.  You can add the curls to the ends of your hair to add that extra lift.

We are loving this style. This is so easy to do and it looks fab!  Grab the middle section and start on your Dutch braid.  Just before you tie it, make the end of the Dutch braid into a top knot.  This is a great style for the fashionistas out there!

5. Side Braid Into a Ponytail

Not feeling any of the styles so far? Then opt for a ponytail style. This is stunning and once you have tried this, the boring ponytail will be long forgotten.
