For any girl, getting ready for a party is exciting. It is exciting because every detail of the hair is going to be scrutinized. So the pressure is high. When you have zeroed your options of dress and makeup, did you give a thought about what hairstyle is going to match with the outfit? Most of the girls tend to care least about hairstyle and all they are going to do is let the hair loose. Though loose hair is a pretty good option, what if I help you with some do it yourself party hairstyles that won’t eat away much of your time? Excited? So am I. Here I give you few super cool party hairstyles for medium hair.
Let’s get started with some the amazing party hairstyles that I have chosen with an experience of scrutinizing hairstyles worn by girls with medium hair at various parties. Here are 5 popular party hairstyles for medium length hair.
Hairstyles for Party
Rope Braid Hairstyles
Rope braid hairstyle is very simple. It goes well with maxis and frocks. This hairstyle will hardly take 2 to 5 minutes.
Here you go.
- Brush your hair well and wipe away all the tangles.
- Separate your bangs and take the portion of hair from forehead from ear to ear and tie it with elastic, leaving the behind hair undisturbed. Use a fancy clip if you wish.
- You can add a poof too, if you don’t wish to have a plain look by backcombing the section of the hair at the forehead.
- Now from either side, take a section of loose hair, part them into 2 and cross them one over the other. Keep adding hair to both the partitions.
- Once you reach the other side after twisting and included the whole loose under this twist, you will be left with 2 sections of hair in hand and no loose hair at all.
- Like the usual rope braid, cross them one over the other till the end.
- Fasten the ends with clear elastic and you are done.
- Pull the stitches apart for a thicker look.
- This is how this hair style looks like at the end. Isn’t it simple?
Side Swept Curls Hairstyles
For short dresses and classic jump suits, side swept curls hairstyle matches well. This hair style is strictly for women and girls with medium length hair. Also, if hair has high volume, you will probably have a tough time achieving this hairstyle.
Let’s get started.
- Make a side partition. I prefer the broader side to be on my right as I like bun to my left.
- Leaving the bangs as it is, take one inch section of hair from the broader side next to the bangs and part them into three.
- Braid it normally. But when it is the chance of behind strand to come to the centre add small strand of hair from the loose hair to the braid and keep braiding till the end.
- After completing this, take another inch section of hair and repeat the same.
- Now you will have two braided strands along with some loose hair.
- Swipe the whole hair including bangs to the left side and fasten the hair into a tight ponytail.
- 75% of the hairstyle is done and here come the interesting and my favorite part of this hairstyle – the messy bun.
- After you tie the ponytail, take a medium width strand from the ponytail and grab a piece of hair from the bottom (probably the longest set of strands). Now taking support of this strand, push the rest of the hair upwards till the scalp.
- You will end up with a small messy bun at the scalp with a thin strand of hair in your hand. Using bobby pins roll and pin the piece in your hand closer to the messy piece of bun.
- Repeat the same with the whole volume of ponytail.
- Style the bangs as you wish.
- At the end, the final result will be like something shown in this image.
Flowery Spiral Braid Hairstyles
The name of this hairstyle itself is very interesting. You will remember your school days while you achieve this hairstyle. Pair up this hairstyle with gowns or anything that’s royal. You can achieve this hairstyle in hardly 6 to 10 minutes based on the length of your hair. Again, this is for women with medium length hair and slightly hard to achieve on long hair.
Here is how you get this hairstyle done.
- Comb your hair well to ensure there are no tangles.
- Make a centre partition from forehead to the neck (vertical partition from forehead)
- Pin the other partition while you work on one to make sure both the sides doesn’t get mixed up.
- About the bangs, it’s up to you. You can either include them in the hairstyle or style them separately. I prefer styling them separately for a smoother outcome.
- Consider one of the partitions.
- Take a strand from the forehead, make them into two and start crossing them over.
- Every time, you cross one strand over other, keep adding small section of loose hair into both the strands and cross them over again.
- Continue this till the whole section of hair comes under this strand and carefully fasten the ends or let someone hold it for you. Don’t make the twists so tightly. Let them be slightly loose.
- Repeat the same with the other side of the hair.
- Here comes the actual part. Now with the braids of each side, make a bun very carefully and hide the ends neatly.
- After you have pinned both the braids like shown in the image, comb the upper layer to hide the scalp that was created due to the centre partition till the neck.
- This is the reason why it is important for the braid to be slightly loose. But don’t make the braids too loose that they fall apart.
- You are done and ready for a rocking party.
Pull Through Twisted Half Up Do
This is again a very simple hairstyle that requires a couple of elastics and bobby pins. Pair up this hairstyle with any dress and it just looks awesome. So is the flexibility and beauty of this hairstyle.
Let’s look deep into the hairstyle. You will probably understand the hairstyle looking at the image. If you don’t, here is what you need to do that is explained in detail.
- Brush your hair and wave off all the tangles.
- Leaving the bangs, take the hair from the crown, take off the lumps with your fingers, if any, and secure it with elastic.
- Make a small loop just above the elastic and pull the ponytail through the loop.
- Slowly pull hair that is closer to the elastic to give it a broader and beautiful look.
- Take a small section of hair from this ponytail and wrap it around the elastic and secure the ends neatly with elastic.
- Now let’s work on the second ponytail. For this, grab the pieces of hair from the face, closer to the ears, that is left after taking hair from the crown for the first ponytail.
- Tie a ponytail again and repeat the same steps. Make a loop above the elastic, pull through the ponytail and pull the hair for a broader look and hide the elastic by wrapping a piece of hair around the elastic.
- Style the bangs and you are done.
- Curl the ends for more beautiful look. However this is optional.
- Here is how it looks.
Half-Up Half Down Fishtail Braid Hairstyles
In a party and your hair got way too messy? Want to bring it under control? All you need is one or two bobby pins based on the thickness of your hair.
If you know how to recreate a fishtail braid you can achieve this hairstyle in a couple of minutes. If you have never tried, here is how it goes.
- Grab hair from the crown. Including or excluding bangs is your personal choice.
- Make it into two equal partitions.
- Using your index finger, take small (smaller, the better) section of hair from the right partition and bring it over the left partition.
- Similarly, take a small strand from the left using your index finger and bring it over the right partition.
- Do this across the length of the hair.
- At the end, grab a small piece of hair and wrap it around the bottom of the strand to secure the stitches and hide the ends using bobby pins neatly.
- When you are grabbing hair with your index finger, make sure, you grab hair of similar thickness every time. Otherwise, the look gets shabby.
- At the end style the bangs and you are ready.
