Therefore, the following simple hairstyles are the perfect choice for medium blonde hair. From short hairstyles to bobs, beach waves to updos you’ll be sure to find the perfect new do for your medium blonde hair.

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

    The long bob has become a classic among hair styles. No wonder – as the style looks good with almost any hair colour. Kate Mara (see photo above) coloured her wavy hair medium blonde with a two-tone effect. The slightly darker hair at 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. Separating the hair into medium-sized strands, hold each one in your straighteners, twist it around on itself and loosely pull down the hair strand. For a more undone look; finishing by brushing through the hair.

    3. Apply hairspray for strong hold.
