Happy #beautymonday, everyone! Today, I am going to be sharing FOUR of my all-time favorite go-to hairstyles for medium length (and longer) hair. These do require braids / buns – so if you have super short hair they probably won’t work! But if you have shoulder length and longer, these will be PERFECT. These are my easy hair styles that I usually do with second day wavy hair that has a little more body and texture. You can do them with straight hair, too, but you will have more volume with wavy hair and I personally prefer the way it looks! 🙂 Let’s dive into it!

PIN THIS FOR LATER:
Once you get the hang of these easy styles, it’s almost second nature to just whip one of them on your head! These are especially great if you already have wavy or curly hair because you don’t have to worry about spending the extra time doing that (hence why these are typically second day styles for me – so I don’t mess with curling time).
