Sarah Harding sports a pin-up girl’s version of the ‘midi’
Once again, a new hair trend has taken shape in the form of the ‘midi’ i.e. mid-length hair . OK, so an ‘inbetween’ hair length may sound a bit boring but there are tons of advantages to having hair that is long enough to tie back, but refuses to resemble rats’ tails.
Even Cheryl Cole has ditched the 20 inch hair extensions in favour of a more demure ‘midi’ – a notably more classy and sophisticated hairdo than her previous ‘Promise This’ look.
The ‘midi’ can be curled, volumised or straightened, ensuring a range of ‘do options at your disposal.
A particular favourite variation of the ‘midi’ is that of the sixties-esque blow-dry. Take inspiration from Lulu’s Boom-Bang-a-Bang days and don’t hold back with extra height. To begin, blow-dry wet hair using a large curling brush and set in heated rollers. For additional height, backcomb hair at the crown of your head, hold with hairspray and smooth over with a paddle brush. If hair continues to fall flat, use Bump-its, available from all Claire’s Accessories stores, where the elevated inserts allow hair to fall high on your head.
Alternatively, straightened styles can offer an elegant and more effortless feel. Remember to begin with a good blow-dry, pointing the nozzle downwards and guide it down the hair shaft. Finish with a pea-sized amount of John Frieda’s Frizz-Ease hair serum.
Daytime maintenance of this hair trend is extremely easy. Scrunching your bonce for a bit of bounce, or tying back into a neat ponytail or bun are just a few of the modest styles available to you.
So if you fancy an image overhaul to showcase at the next Christmas party, take-on the trend of the ‘midi’ and you’ll undoubtedly be the talk of the town.
