Instructions

Get The Look: Rachel McAdams' 90s Inspired Bob

1. Stay with second-day hair for extra texture (and those natural oils), but if you can’t help it, shampoo your hair with a volumising formula. Really work it into your roots, then rinse with cool water.

2. If hair is on the thin side, let it dry naturally and apply a light mist to the roots. It will give your hair an extra lift without making it feel crunchy.

3. Section off your hair, then use a pair of flat irons to keep it looking super-sleek. Part your hair on an angle for the illusion of extra lift and texture.

5 Medium-Length Celebrity Hairstyles We Love

Growing out short hair and feeling less than inspired? You’re in luck, because these five celebrity hairstyles should convince you that a medium-lentgth hairstyle is just as chic as a bob or long hair. A style that isn’t too long or too short will frame your face, and has plenty of versatility with how you style it.

Jessica Alba’s ombre waves
One of the hottest celebrity hairstyles, Jessica Alba’s ombre waves is a great example how to style thick, naturally wavy hair. Jessica’s hair falls just below the shoulders, and you can create similar waves at home using a clamp less curling iron. But this hairstyle, which is ideal for oval-shaped faces, looks equally great straight.

Amy Poehler’s wavy bob
Funny woman Amy Poehler’s bob falls just at her shoulders, with a wispy fringe, swooped to the side, that frame her forehead and allow her to wear her hair up or down. To get Amy’s slight wave, cut  layers to create movement and use a large-barrel curling iron. This medium-length hairstyle is especially flattering on heart-shaped and round faces.

gwynethpaltrowhair

Gwnenyth Paltrow’s long straight layers
Gwyneth Paltrow let her blunt bob grow out into a medium-length hairstyle with long layers that are especially defined at the ends. The super straight finish is perfect for a really strong, polished look. Use a straightening balm before straightening the hair, and finish with a light hold hairspray to tame flyaways. Try tucking one side of the hair behind the hair to show off fabulous earrings when going out.

Rachel McAdams’ loose curls
Rachel McAdams has gone from blonde to brunette to red, but always comes back to medium-length hair, which shows off her flawless skin and sparking eyes. Not ready to go all-out red like Rachel? Try auburn highlights, then have your stylist cut shapely layers which become more defined when curled in a loose spiral pattern with a medium-barrel curling iron or flat iron. It’s the perfect hairstyle for anyone with an oval face.  

katyperryhair

Katy Perry’s Old Hollywood curls
Katy Perry is the queen of transformation, so one day she might be wearing a platinum blonde wig, and another day, a retro updo. But one look she keeps coming back to medium-length hair that falls just below the shoulders. The Old Hollywood curls is a classic style that takes from you from day to night. Start by parting the hair to the side, and use large rollers to curl the ends of the hair. Try an intense hair colour like Katy’s rich chocolate brown to make the hairstyle stand out even more.
