Streaks or lighter hair ends for a two-tone style enhance the structure and beauty of medium blonde hair. Combining caramel and light blonde hair creates a particularly appealing natural appearance. We show how to style medium blonde hair and add light accents

  • Almost unnoticed, medium blonde hair made an entrance in the fashion world. Traditionally, anything medium is in jeopardy of being considered ordinary. This certainly does not apply to medium blonde hair, which offers countless shading options and structural variations. Lighter streaks in medium blonde hair are especially expressive. Other variations include two-tone colouring with lighter hair ends. Reflected light in golden or caramel hair playfully enhances the radiance of medium blonde hair.

    Freely moving medium blonde hair displays the golden shimmer and changing hair colour nuances particularly well. Therefore, today’s simple hairstyles are the perfect choice for medium blonde hair. The hair colour also adds style to short hairstyles, bobs, beach waves and updos.

  • The Styling of Kate Mara’s Medium Blonde Long Bob

    The long bob is the most favoured among today’s hairstyles because it is so flattering for many women. Kate Mara (see the photo above) coloured her wavy hair medium blonde with lighter ends. The slightly darker hair near the roots and the undone style lend her bob a modern flair.

  • Styling:

    1. Apply salt spray to your damp hair. Then hang your head upside down while blow-drying your hair. We recommend using the diffuser attachment of your blow dryer for best results.

    2. Hold individual strands of hair between the flat iron plates and guide it along the strand of hair. Turn the flat iron rod around its axis where you want to create a wave. Then use some momentum to pull the ends of the strand through the flat iron plates towards the outside and past the hair ends. This will give the strands a beautiful S-shape. 

    3. Apply hairspray for extended hold.

    Styling: Apply heat protectant to your towel-dry hair. Then hang your head upside down while blow-drying your hair. Create a low side parting before curling and waving your hair. Sweep your hair over the shoulder opposite of the side parting. Use a small amount of hair gel to secure the hair under the side parting behind your ear. Hairspray will keep your hair in place

    Medium Blonde Hair: The Faux Bob


    Would you like to wear a bob without cutting off your long hair? Medium blonde hair makes bobs look especially attractive. Claire Danes looks charming with her medium blonde faux bob and slanted side parting. On one side, she pushed her side hair behind her ear.


    Styling: Apply styling mousse to your damp hair and blow-dry it. Create a side parting before gathering your hair in a loose ponytail. Now pull the scrunchy far enough toward the hair ends that you can fold your hair under. Secure the hair in the back using slides or bobby pins. Finally, push the hair behind your ear on the side with the parting. Hairspray provides the necessary hold
