    Midi-Hair in the Sleek Look

    Super hip: The blunt cut long bob with sleek chic reveals your avant garde side. If your hair is really straight, feel free to play around a bit with the parting and form it in the centre, on the side or shaped like a triangle – seen with the Japanese fashion label Toga at the London Fashion Week. The blunt cut is also excellent for very fine or thin hair. An accurate blunt cut makes the ends appear stronger so the hairdo appears visually fuller

    Wildly Layered Midi-Hair

    This version of the midi-hairstyle (also seen with Toga) is pure coolness! The layered shag is reminiscent of wild times and absolute freedom. A haircut without limits, and best of all: It does not have to be trimmed very often – every eight weeks is entirely sufficient. The mid-length cut is outstanding for everyday life, and we promise you: Hardly any hairdo is faster to style than this one! Wash, comb, blow-dry upside-down, tousle, done!

    Midi-Hair in a Low Ponytail

    Want to tie your hair back? That too is no problem with mid-length hair. The ponytail works best when it is tied low at the back of the neck (mega-trendy right now by the way!). Smooth the hair and tie it back with a thin hair elastic. Additional highlight: Twirled sections on the sides! Leave out a strand on each side, tie the ponytail low at the back of the neck, twirl the strands and either pin them up in the direction of the ponytail or – if their length permits – wrap them around the hair elastic. Midi-hair can be this sophisticated!

    Looking for a lightning quick change? With the wavy wet look à la Felder Felder, you transform your mid-length hair into an exciting eye catcher in just one styling step! Simply rub a hazelnut sized amount of hair gel in your fingers and carefully work it into slightly damp hair from the hairline to the ends. With your fingertips, loosely bring the wet hair back and then briefly blow dry it in shape – finished! The look: Sporty, sexy, super modern

    Midi-Hair with Beach Waves

    Soft waves are the key if you want to wear thick hair in a mid-length cut (such as the bob). Beach waves add the perfect twist to the mid-length cut and are especially flattering for round facial shapes as well – the best example: Model Miranda Kerr! Here’s how to get the wavy style moving: Knead volumising foam into towel dried hair. Form a side parting, apply salt spray to the lengths and blow dry the hair. Then perfect the wavy look by twirling individual strands around a large curling iron. Apply hairspray to mid-length hair for lasting hold!
