If you have medium length hair, it can be tricky looking for braided style ideas on the internet.  Many articles are for long or short hair but hardly ever about medium length hair.  That is why we have written this article.  It is all for the medium length girls out there!

We know how it feels to run out of hairstyling ideas.  We all need hair inspiration at some point so we have come up with 17 chic braided hairstyles for all of you that have medium length hair.

1. Messy Fishtail Braids Half Up

Two trending styles in one, what more could you ask for? Messy hair has been trending and so has fishtails.  We all love to have messy hair.  For anyone that’s new to messy hair, it’s controlled messy hair not just messy hair.  The ‘just got out of bed’ look is a favourite of ours.  This style is easy to create.  Start by grabbing the top hair section for your fishtail and braid away.

2. Loose and Messy French Braid Style

If fishtails aren’t your thing, go for a French braid. Loose and messy are a match made in heaven.  They create a gorgeous and girly hairstyle that many girls love.  It goes with any outfit and even bridesmaids are opting for messy hairstyles.
